Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham ‘splits from wife after 21-year marriage’

Fleetwood Mac star Lindsey Buckingham and his wife Kristen Messner have reportedly split up after 21 years of marriage.

According to TMZ, Kristen filed documents to dissolve their marriage at Los Angeles County, bringing their relationship to an end.

The couple first met when Kristen, a talented photographer, captured photos of Lindsey when he was touring with Fleetwood Mac.

They married in 2000, walking down the aisle in an intimate ceremony, and share two daughters, Leelee, 21, Stella, 17, and one son, William, 22.

Working professionally in interior design as well as photography, Kristen helped to style the family's homes in Brentwood, California.

In 2019, Lindsey underwent open-heart surgery, with his wife speaking out in a show of support following the procedure.

"Lindsey Buckingham experienced severe chest pains and was taken to the hospital where he subsequently underwent emergency open heart surgery," her representative said in a statement.

"It’s with great relief and thankful hearts that we report the surgery was successful in its purpose.

"Unfortunately, the life-saving procedure caused vocal cord damage, the permanency of which is unclear. Lindsey is slowly recovering at home with the support of his wife and children."

Daily Star has contacted Lindsey's representatives for comment.

Lindsey has not commented on the claims, but took to Twitter to promote his new album, inviting his fans to give it a listen.

"My new self-titled album is one I’ve been intending to get out for a couple of years now, but on more than one occasion, unforeseen circumstances necessitated a postponement of plans," he said.

"Now that we’re back in gear, I’m thrilled to finally be sharing new music with my listeners!"

During his time with Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey had a relationship with his bandmate – and high school friend – Stevie Nicks.

Their relationship broke down in the late 70s, but the lyrics of some of Fleetwood Mac's biggest hits have made reference to their doomed romance.

Speaking about their working relationship after their split, Nicks told Rolling Stone in 2015: “We know exactly what to say when we really want to throw a dagger in.

“And I think that that’s not different now than it was when we were 20. And I don’t think it will be different when we’re 80.”
