Jewel and her husband Ty Murray are divorcing. Jewel wrote, "My husband, friend and partner of 16 years and I have decided to get a divorce." "Ty and I have always tried to live the most authentic life possible, and we wanted our separation as husband and wife to be nothing less loving than the way we came together. For some time we have been engaged in a private and difficult, but thoughtful and tender undoing of ourselves. Allowing ourselves the time and space to redefine what we are to each other with love rather than malice." Jewel says she and Ty remain committed to raising their 3-year-old son, Kase.
