Randy Jackson‘s wife Erika Jackson just filed papers for divorce from the musician, TMZ reports.

The 58-year-old music producer of American Idol fame and his wife have been married for eighteen years and share two children together.

Erika cited irreconcilable differences on the divorce papers, and wants full custody and joint legal custody of their one underage child.

Randy was with American Idol since the beginning, but announced he was leaving the show in 2013. However, he was brought back as a music consult for later seasons.

    I am really sorry to hear this because they both appear to be lovely people. Being with someone for 18 years is a long time. We don’t know what the circumstances are, but I’m glad that they at least waited until the children were grown. Perhaps they will reconcile, that would be nice. Wishing the best for both of them!
