Heart’s Nancy Wilson files for divorce

Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson has filed for divorce from writer/director Cameron Crowe, after 24 years of marriage.

Court papers, citing irreconcilable differences, were filed September 16; the couple separated in June, 2008.

Wilson and Crowe have twin 10-year old sons, William and Curtis; Nancy has filed for joint custody of the pair.

Crowe won an Oscar for his screenplay of “Almost Famous,” based loosely on his early days as a young reporter for Rolling Stone magazine. His screenwriting career kicked off with 1982’s “Fast Times At Ridgemont High,” one of a few Crowe films that featured cameos by Nancy (she also showed up in 1984’s “The Wild Life.”); she also wrote music for some of his other movies. Crowe’s film credits include “Singles,” “Jerry McGuire” and “Vanilla Sky,” among others.

Heart has just released “Red Velvet Car,” their first studio effort in six years.
