    Rocker Van Halen, actress Bertinelli announce split after 21 years
    No immediate divorce plans
    July 9, 2002 Posted: 9:24 PM EDT (0124 GMT)

    LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Dutch-born rocker Eddie Van Halen and his actress-wife of 21 years, Valerie Bertinelli, separated several months ago but have no plans at the moment to seek a divorce, her publicist said on Tuesday.

    The 47-year-old guitarist, who disclosed a year ago that he was undergoing treatment for cancer, split from Bertinelli, 42, in October 2001, according to a spokeswoman for the actress, Heidi Schaeffer.

    She declined to give further details, other than to say the couple's separation was amicable and that no third party was involved.

    Van Halen, who overcame a highly publicized battle with alcohol dependence in the late 1990s, has an 11-year-old son with Bertinelli.

    "Because they're the parents of a young son, they've requested that their family's privacy be respected at this time," Schaeffer said.

    Van Halen, regarded as one of the most influential guitarists in the history of rock music, married Bertinelli in 1981. She is perhaps best known for her role on the 1970s television sitcom "One Day at a Time."

    I remember when Howard Stern's separation was announced and he said there were no divorce plans.

    It was the same story on E.T. The said that they had been separated since October. Divorce around the corner? maybe. A possible reunion? a long shot. But who knows maybe space is what they needed for now. Only time will tell.

    Does anyone really believe that Eddie has "overcome" his alcoholism? Marriage to an alcoholic would be utter hell, and Valerie and Wolfie have probably stuck around about 11 years too long.

    On the flip side, if Eddie really HAS been on the wagon the last couple of years, Valerie would discover that she is now married to a completely different man -- a sober man! The whole dynamic of the relationship would change. Add to that the stress of cancer, her working in Utah, her son's age, and it's no wonder separation seems like the answer. But, then, no one can really know or understand what's happening in a marriage except the couple themselves, and I shouldn't speculate. I feel so sorry for the family and wish all of them health and the best of luck on whatever paths they choose.

    The nerve of CNN. They already have a quick vote on their website asking which hollywood breakup is the most suprising. Guess who's winning.

    Great post Lawchick. Drunk or Sober, alcoholism breaks families. Sometime there is just too much water under the bridge. In hindsight of my post yesterday, maybe Wolf is still young enough to be influenced by a mentally healthier male role model. Ed may be his father but I dont think he should be his rolemodel. Good for Val for trying to break the cycle for herself and her son!
