John Mellencamp and his model wife are taking some of the sheen off all the recent celebrity engagements by delivering some sad news. The 'Pink Houses' rocker, 59, and Elaine Irwin Mellencamp, 41, announced through a spokesman on Thursday that they are "calling it a day as a couple" after 18 years of marriage and 20 years together.

"John and Elaine Mellencamp are proud of their 20 years together and are very happy with their accomplishments both as parents and as a family," the statement reads.

The couple will continue to raise their two children, sons Hud and Speck, in his home state of Indiana.

No reason was given for the split and it's unclear if they have filed for divorce. This is Mellencamp's third marriage.
