Former Fleetwood Mac singer’s wife filed for divorce on the eve of the elimination of the last single related difficulties
Lindsey Buckingham and her husband Kristen Messner decided to retire after more than twenty years.
PEOPLE announced that Messner, 51, died in L.A. on June 2. The county has filed for divorce from the former Fleetwood Mac singer and guitarist. The couple got married in 2000, after a meeting in Buckingham in the late 1990s for one of Messner’s solo album covers. They share three children – 22-year-old son William and 21-year-old Leelee and 17-year-old Stella.
Buckingham, 71, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal in 2011 that he was happy to meet Messner in his later life: “I had a lot of crazy girlfriends, and most of them were just the result of the lifestyle we lived, all ahead.”
“Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of friends who aren’t really there, ruining their children, and I wasn’t there for family reasons. So I waited and I was lucky. I met someone relatively late … it worked very well,” he continued.
At the time of their separation, Buckingham is preparing to release an AP and a North American tour later this year.
On Tuesday, the singer shared EP news, which was her first solo performance since Seeds We Seow in 2011 and bore her name after she left Fleetwood Mac. The project, written by Buckingham in his home studio, produced and recorded by the producer, will be shown on September 17, including his latest single, “I Don’t Think,” which marks his love life.
“‘I don’t think, like many songs on my new album, is about the challenges couples face in a long-term relationship,” he said. “Over time, two people inevitably find it necessary to strengthen their initial dynamics with resilience, accepting each other’s flaws, and a willingness to work continuously on issues that are the essence of a long-term good relationship. This song, that spirit, and discipline.”
The upcoming release will be combined with a 30-city US solo tour starting Sept. 1 and through the holiday season. Tour tickets go on sale on June 11.
