CAMDEN, Maine -- The wife of "American Pie" singer and songwriter Don McLean has filed for divorce in Maine.
A lawyer for Patrisha McLean says the legal papers filed Thursday cite "adultery, cruel and abusive treatment, and irreconcilable differences." The two have been married for 30 years.
He has been prohibited from having contact with his wife. A statement from Patrisha McLean's attorney, Gene Libby, says she's gained "strength and insight away from his influence and control."
Don McLean's defense attorney confirmed the divorce filing. A lawyer he retained to handle the divorce proceedings wasn't immediately available for comment.
