TMZ is reporting that Toni Tennille filed divorce papers in Arizona, claiming her marriage to Daryl Dragon was broken. Captain and Tennille have been married for 39 years, and put out HUGE Hits in the 70′s and early 80′s, such as “Love Will Keep Us Together,” “Do That To Me One More Time,” and many more.
Daryl told TMZ he has no idea why she filed, but that they were still living in the same house.
According to TMZ, the divorce documents mention health insurance coverage. Daryl Dragon has Parkinson’s, and it looks like his health coverage would be better if he was not married. Obamacare has what some call the “Marriage Penalty.” Healthcare is cheaper if you are not married.
Tennille has been with him 39 years, so never fear, Captain and Tennille fans. This is not a real divorce, it’s a Health Insurance thing! Thanks Obamacare!
