The Captain & Tennille splitting up

By Kyle Johnson,

Singing duo from the 1970s, The Captain & Tennille, Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille, are reportedly getting a divorce.

Tennille filed for a divorce on Jan. 16 according to RumorFix, who talked with the Prescott, Arizona City courthouse. The "Love Will Keep Us Together" duo have been married for 39 years.

USA Today reports that a statement appeared on CaptainandTennille.net, mentioning the divorce. The statement notes that the couple appeared to outside parties to have a "rock-solid" relationship.

But, the statement adds, "people naturally evolve over time, & sometimes hidden feelings start to be uncovered."

TMZ reached out to the 71-year-old Dragon who seemed surprised about the news. He said, "I don't know why she filed. I gotta figure it out for myself first."

TMZ got a hold of the divorce documents which mention something about health insurance, which could have played a part, the site speculates. It's possible that Tennille filed for divorce to maybe allow her husband to get better health insurance as he suffers from a condition similar to Parkinson's. The neurological condition also causes tremors.
