Captain & Tennille Divorcing Love Won't Keep Them Together

Captain & Tennille Divorcing

Love WON'T Keep Them Together        

Say it's not so ... there's no love left for Captain & Tennille ... they're getting divorced ... and the Captain says he didn't see it coming.

Toni Tennille filed legal documents in Arizona, claiming their marriage was "irretrievably broken."  They have been married for 39 years.

If you don't know you probably should.  They had a string of hits in the 1970s, including "Love Will Keep Us Together,"  and  "Do that to Me One More Time."

They were discovered by Neil Sedaka at The SmokeHouse restaurant in Burbank, California near NBC.

Daryl Dragon (The Captain) is 71.  Yes, it's really Dragon.

Daryl said, "I don't know why she filed.  I gotta figure it out for myself first."  He also said they are still living together in the same house.

According to the divorce documents,  there is a special mention about health insurance coverage. That seems relevant, because in 2009 Toni blogged that Daryl had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.   In 2011 Toni updated the message, saying Daryl's tremors were so bad he was embarrassed to go out in public.

What's unclear is whether it is possible Toni really filed for health insurance reasons, whether his coverage might be better if they were divorced maybe.

Here's an update to the blog: "The Captain & Tennille appeared to the public as them being the ideal model for a 'rock-solid' married pair.   But almost all people naturally evolve over time, & sometimes hidden feelings start to be uncovered ..."
