Singer Don McLean Releases Statement After Wife Comes Forward About Domestic Abuse

Singer Don McLean has come forward with a statement on his Twitter account after being arrested earlier this week for domestic violence.

The 70-year-old singer, who is known for his song “American Pie,” wrote, “This last year and especially now have been hard emotional times for my wife my children and me. What is occurring is the very painful breakdown of an almost 30 year relationship. Our hearts are broken and we must carry on. There are no winners or losers but I am not a villain. I may never recover from this but I will try and hope to continue to entertain you all as I always have. I ask God to give us the strength to find new happiness and I hope people will realize that this will all be resolved but I hope I will not be judged in this frantic media environment.”

Don‘s wife reportedly took out an order of protection with the police after saying Don was “unfathomably deep and scary….Don terrorized me for four hours, until the 911 call that I think might have saved my life.” The police report also cited years of abuse, ABC News reports.
