Singer Don McLean, wife, finalise divorce

Associated Press Associated Press 21/06/2016

American Pie singer and songwriter Don McLean and his wife have finalised their divorce and agreed to a $US10 million ($A13.42 million) settlement.

A spokesman for McLean said on Monday 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.
