Peter Frampton

Rocker Peter Frampton has filed for divorce from his wife of nearly 15 years.
Frampton, who lives in the Cincinnati suburb of Indian Hills, Ohio, is married to the former Tina Elfers of another Cincinnati suburb, Reading, Ohio.
Frampton filed the divorce papers Tuesday in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple separated on New Year's Eve, the Los Angeles Times says.
The 61-year-old singer is asking for joint legal custody and visitation rights for the couple's 15-year-old daughter, Mia, TMZ says.
Frampton has requested that Elfers have primary physical custody of their daughter, who just completed her sophomore year at a Los Angeles area high school.
Frampton is doing a 35th anniversary tour of his iconicFrampton Comes Alive! album. The tour ends in Paris in November.
The couple married here in 1996, and moved here from Nashville, Tenn., in 2000 so his wife could be closer to family.
They have been living in the Los Angeles area for more than a year as their daughter pursues an acting career with appearances in Bridesmaids and That's What I Am. She had attended grade school in Indian Hill.
This is Frampton's third divorce. He split with Mary Lovett in 1973, and with Barbara Gold in 1993.
