Rod Stewart Files for Divorce From Hunter
LOS ANGELES Jun 3, 2005 — Singer Rod Stewart has filed for divorce from actress Rachel Hunter, citing irreconcilable differences.
Hunter, 35, and the veteran British rocker were married in 1990, but split in 1999, court documents filed Thursday show. Hunter originally filed for divorce in 2003 but later withdrew her request for unspecified reasons.
The couple have two children, 12-year-old Liam and 10-year-old Rene.
Stewart, 60, recently announced that his longtime fiancee, model/photographer Penny Lancaster, was pregnant. He said the baby is due in early December.
Lancaster's agent, Nicholas Young, has said the couple would make wedding plans once Stewart's divorce from Hunter is final.
