Bonnie Pointer Files For Divorce From Husband Jeffrey Bowen... 10 years After They Separated


Bonnie Pointer has filed for divorce after 35 years of marriage.

The 63-year-old Pointer Sisters singer is citing 'irreconcilable differences' as she ends her marriage to Motown Records producer Jeffrey Bowen, TMZ reports.

However, the split has not come as a total surprise, according to court records they separated in 2004.

Bonnie and Jeffrey, who married in 1978, did not have any children together.
In 2011, Bonnie , who formed the Grammy winning group in 1969 with her late sister June, was arrested for possession of a controlled substance.

she was bailed for $10,000.
The website revealed that law enforcement officials recorded the arrest at 12:39 am and had her leaving custody three hours later, at around 4:30 in the morning.
The Pointer Sisters enjoyed massive success in the 70s' and 80s' after expanding to include their sisters Anita and Ruth.

Their many hits are still played and covered today and include Slow Hand, I'm So Excited and Jump (For My Love) and Automatic.

Tragedy struck in 2006 when June passed away from lung cancer at the age of 52.
Her siblings were all by her bedside, all except for Bonnie, who was feuding with the group.

The feud deepened when Bonnie appeared on Entertainment Tonight saying the other sisters had not fulfilled the burial wishes for June, instead having her cremated because it was cheaper.

Bonnie also claimed the sisters had not let her ride in the family car at the funeral.
The sisters were estranged from Bonnie until she joined Anita Pointer on the Idol Radio Show in 2007.

And by 2009 Ruth, Anita and Bonnie had reunited with gusto.
