Merlis says the Mellencamps "are proud of their 20 years together and are very happy with their accomplishments both as parents and as a family."

The pair met when Elaine was hired to appear on the cover of his 1991 album "Whenever We Wanted" and they wed the following year. The couple went on to have two sons together, Hud and Speck.

He says they will continue to raise their two children in Indiana.

Mellencamp's latest album, "No Better Than This," was released earlier this year.
