After 11 Years, Michelle Branch Files For Divorce

Michelle Branch has filed for divorce from her husband, Teddy Landau, after 11 years of marriage. According to PEOPLE, she is citing irreconcilable differences as the cause. According to reports, the couple separated in Jan. 2014, and Michelle officially filed for divorce on February 9, 2015.

Michelle married her former bassist Teddy in May 2004 in Mexico. At the time, Michelle was 20 and Teddy was 39. During a 2006 interview, Michelle told PEOPLE that the beginning of their relationship had its difficulties, “My relationship had a very rocky start. My parents hated the idea – and now love him, of course. My dad never wanted me to be with a musician. I mean, how unrealistic is that? I’m not going to fall for an accountant! And when he found out he was closer in age to my husband than I was, he got very nervous.”

The couple has one daughter together and are planning on filing for joint custody.
