Neil Young - Neil Young will continue to support ailing son
Neil Young says he and his estranged wife, Pegi Young, have agreed to continue co-parenting their adult son, Ben Young, who has cerebral palsy, after filing for divorce.
Neil Young and Pegi Young will continue to co-parent their ailing adult son.
The 68-year-old 'Heart of Gold' hitmaker, who filed for divorce from the 61-year-old singer last month after 36-years of marriage, stated in court documents that they have both agreed to keep supporting Ben Young, who has cerebral palsy, but made no mention of paying his estranged wife alimony.
But, according to gossip website TMZ.com, Pegi, who also has daughter Amber with the rocker, has also filed legal papers, seeking both spousal support and child support.
The former couple, who got married in 1978, quietly separated in April, but only filed their divorce petition on July 29 in San Mateo, California and a preliminary hearing will take place on December 12.
Pegi, who was the inspiration for some of Neil's most romantic hits, including 'Once an Angel,' and 'Unknown Legend,' began working as his back-up singer after making her debut on stage with him at the Oscars in 1994.
They last performed together at their annual Bridge School Benefit in Mountain View, California last October.
The duo set up the Bridge School in 1986 after being inspired by the lack of educational opportunities for Ben.
