‘American Pie’ singer Don McLean, wife, finalize divorce
CAMDEN, Maine — “American Pie” singer and songwriter Don McLean and his wife have finalized their divorce and agreed to a $10 million settlement.
A spokesman for McLean said Monday that the singer “chose to ignore a premarital agreement” and provide the settlement.
McLean’s wife Patrisha, an author and photographer, filed for divorce citing “adultery, cruel and abusive treatment, and irreconcilable differences” in legal papers.
The couple had been married for about 30 years. They have two adult children.
McLean, who lives in the coastal town of Camden, was arrested in January on charges including domestic violence assault. He has pleaded not guilty.
