It's a sad day for easy-listening saxophonist Kenny G: his wife has filed for divorce.

The musician's wife of 20 years, Lyndie Benson-Gorelick, filed papers with the Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for separation. The couple has two sons.

With more than 75 million albums sold, Kenny Gorelick is allegedly worth around $50 million. Both parties have already retained lawyers: the musician has hired Laura Wasser, who has previously represented Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian, and Benson-Gorelick has hired Gary Fishbein, who has previously worked for Nikki Sixx.

Kenny G has enjoyed a bit of a resurgence with younger audiences lately; in the past few years, he has collaborated with Weezer and Foster the People, the latter via a surprise cameo on the band's Saturday Night Live appearance.
