After four years of separation, Valerie Bertinelli and guitarist Eddie Van Halen have finally filed for divorce after 24 years of marriage.

Bertinelli’s publicist told AP that, “Yes, that’s true. They have been separated for four years and it’s amicable.” The divorce petition filed Monday cited irreconcilable differences.

The couple married on April 11, 1981 and split on October 15, 2001. They have one son, 14-year-old Wolfgang Van Halen.
