Noel Gallagher And Sara MacDonald Split After 12 Years Of Marriage
Noel Gallagher is getting a divorce.
On Monday, the former Oasis songwriter and vocalist announced with his wife of 12 years, Sara MacDonald, that they are splitting up.
“Noel and Sara will together continue to look after their children who remain their priority,” a spokesperson told People in a statement.
The couple, who share 15-year-old Donovan and 12-year-old Sonny, have been together 22 years.
“Noel and Sara ask the media to respect their privacy and that of our family at this time,” the spokesperson added.
Gallagher and MacDonald, a publicist, met in 2000 at a nightclub in Ibiza, with the musician telling British Vogue two decades later that it was love at first sight. They shared a taxi, and he ended up asking for her phone number.
“I remember keeping it like it was a religious f**king artifact,” he said.
In June 2011, they finally tied the knot in a private ceremony in England’s New Forest.
Prior to his relationship with MacDonald, Gallagher had been married to Meg Matthews, with whom he shares 22-year-old daughter Anaïs.
