The two married in July 1995 and have twin 11-year-old daughters, Ruby and Tessa. Fleetwood filed the papers on March 22nd, but the documents didn't become public until yesterday.

Fleetwood Mac Promise New EP 'In a Few Days'

According to a court filing, the 65-year-old Fleetwood wants joint legal custody of the twins, but requested that his estranged wife have physical custody of the children. He's also seeking sole control of music royalties and other earnings prior to the marriage. Fleetwood cited "irreconcilable differences" for the separation but did not elaborate in the documents.

At a show this weekend in Philadelphia, Fleetwood Mac promised a new EP "in a few days," with Lindsay Buckingham describing the band's new music as "the best stuff we've done in a long time."

The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
