The Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young star, 73, has split from his second wife, Susan Sennett, who he married in 1977. They have three children together.

No further details of their break-up have been made public but the folk guitarist confirmed the news in an interview with music magazine Uncut.

Discussing his new album This Path Tonight, which is due out in April (16), Nash tells the publication, "I'm going through a divorce at the moment, after 38 years, so that feeds into songs (on the record)."

Nash married his first wife, Rose Eccles, in 1962 but they divorced two years later.
