HOLLYWOOD, CA – Singer Jewel  is cutting “ties” with her husband, Ty Murray.

The 40-year-old singer, who married the rodeo pro back in August 2008 after 10 years of dating, announced their split on her website saying she and Ty tried to live an “authentic” life and wanted their separation to be loving.

She also revealed that the two had been struggling for quite sometime.

See you never know what goes on behind closed doors.

The couple has a 3-year-old son together, Kase.

On the brightside, maybe Jewel’s trip to Splitsville will lead her to a trip to the top of the charts.

Nothing makes for better material than a break-up.
