Heart’s Nancy Wilson files for divorce from director Cameron Crowe
After 22 years of marriage, Nancy Wilson of the 80s rock group Heart is filing for divorce from “Almost Famous,” “Jerry Maguire” and “Singles” director Cameron Crowe.
Wilson filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday, citing irreconcilable differences and indicating a separation date that occurred in June of 2008. Crowe is well known for several wildly successful films, and MTV listed Wilson’s accomplishments throughout her career:
Wilson, a singer/songwriter from the ’70s rock band Heart (she sang lead vocals on the band’s #1 hit “These Dreams” and on the top-20 hit “Stranded”), is a successful artist in her own right. She had cameos in Crowe’s “The Wild Life” as Rick’s wife and in “Fast Times,” credited as “Beautiful Girl in Corvette,” who while at a red light, turns and smiles, then laughs at Brad Hamilton (played by Judge Reinhold), dressed as a pirate.
The couple wed in July of 1986 and have twin ten-year-old boys. Wilson is seeking joint legal and physical custody of the children, as well as spousal support from Crowe.
