John Mellencamp and Christie Brinkley Split
Posted on August 10, 2016
John Mellencamp and Christie Brinkley have ended their relationship. A rep for the couple told ABC News, "Both the mileage between their homes and their heavy career demands interfered with their ability to maintain the relationship. They vowed to remain best of friends."
Earlier this year, Brinkley told People that she and the Indiana based rocker were "really opposites... He's kind of a throwback from another time, like a silent cowboy,'" she said. "But then we talked and realized that we do have a lot of shared interests." Brinkley, of course, was married to Billy Joel for almost a decade.
