Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham splits from wife of 21 years Kristen Messner

FLEETWOOD Mac star Lindsey Buckingham has split from his wife of 21 years.

Kristen Messner has reportedly filed for divorce from the guitarist/singer, according to TMZ.

The couple tied the knot in 2000 and are parents to three children, the youngest of whom is 17.

They met when she photographed him for one of his solo albums and Lindsey previously revealed he waited “a long time” for Kristen after dating a lot of "crazy" girlfriends.

He told the Las Vegas Review-Journal: "I had a lot of crazy girlfriends, and a lot of that was just an outgrowth of the lifestyle we were all leading.

“I did see a lot of friends who were parents and spouses — back in previous decades — who weren’t really there and kind of screwed up their kids, and were not there for their family situations.

"So I waited and I was lucky enough to meet someone relatively late.

“So it’s worked out really well. I got all that other garbage out of the way.”

He famously dated one-time bandmate Stevie Nicks and the pair wrote some of their most famous songs following their split, including Go Your Own Way.

Lindsey first left the band in acrimonious circumstances in 1987.

He rejoined when the band reformed in 1997 but again left under a cloud amid rows over a forthcoming tour in 2018.

The news comes on the same day Lindsey announced his first solo album in a decade.
