    VAN HALEN Guitarist, Wife Split Up - July 9, 2002

    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.

    I thought it was kind of weird for Eddie & Val to purchase a new place, but now it makes sense. It Seems like this will be a civil split. I feel for Wolfie in all this.

    Kudos on the news FH ....just wish it could have been more positive.

    Rex Jackson was right:

    Quoting Rex:

    * Ed is *not* suffering from his cancer, as far as I'm aware. The health issue I was mentioning, which has been confirmed to me in numerous pieces of email from people who should know is that Edward has started drinking fairly heavily again. Keep in mind that it's still just a rumor, but one that looks pretty reliable. For someone in his condition that seems like a terrible idea. It's not like we, as fans, have any control over what Ed does with his personal life, but it's a damn shame to hear this.
    * Edward and Val have divorced. This one has been going around for a while, but it's looking like a fact. The rumor is that she sued for divorce back in February and is living in Utah full-time now with Wolf
    * Alex is broke. He's lost his home and has moved into the other house up at Ed's compound. This would explain why he was allegedly trying to sell his publishing rights last year.
    * Edward says that Van Halen is over. The reason they have no label, no management and no projects on the table is because they have no intention of working as a band again. Al and Ed are jamming a lot to keep their minds off things, but there is no plan for any of the stuff they're doing to become a Van Halen project. The indie label rumor about Ed selling unreleased material is just a rumor, too, apparently. There are no such plans.

    It's in other publications as well.

    I can't remember who started a thread with the pending divorce information early this year... but I responded in support of it then. I wrote that I had a friend who lived in Park City, and that a divorce was imminent; that Ed was in CA and Val was in UT; that separation papers had been filed; and that Wolfie was seen flying back and forth unaccompanied by either parent.

    Sad to say that it's true, but it isn't a surprise to anyone here is it? It's just sad to see a marriage come to an end, especially when they've been through what they have, and we don't know the half of it... nor will we ever.

    Wow, Ed's life is pretty fucked up right now.

    But then again, isn't the divorce rate in the USA about 50%????

    I think marriage isn't all that anyway...

    I'll have to check out E.T. I'm sure it'll be on there. The last Van Halen related item I saw was a couple of years ago when they said that Ed had cancer. This was way before it was officially released.

    Ed drinking heavily again ? That bothers me more than the divorce. I hope Ed is able to "maintain".

    I wish the best for Wolfie and his parents.
