VAN HALEN Guitarist, Wife Split Up

47-year-old VAN HALEN guitarist Eddie Van Halen, and wife Valerie Bertinelli, 42, have split up after 21 years together.

Break-up rumors dogged the couple through Eddie's fight against alcoholism and his tongue-cancer scare, but this time it's official. "Because they are the parents of a young son, they have requested that their family's privacy be respected at this time," Van Halen's rep told Us Weekly magazine.
