Singer/songwriter Richard Marx and his actress wife Cynthia Rhodes have called time on their 25-year marriage after separating last summer (13).
The Hazard singer, 50, went public about the split during an appearance on U.S. Tv talk show Katie on Friday (04Apr14), when host Katie Couric asked him about dating.
He said, "It's all brand new to me, so I'm just having fun... You hit 50 and go, 'What do I want to do differently? I want to do as much differently as possible'."
Marx met Dirty Dancing star Rhodes in 1983 and they fell in love while he was working on the soundtrack to her film Staying Alive. They wed in 1989 and share three grown-up sons, Brandon, Lucas and Jesse.
The king of love ballads and his wife are no longer singing the same tune.
A source tells People.com, Marx and Rhodes are in the process of divorcing.
