Captain & Tennille are breaking up.
Indeed -- 71-year-old Daryl "Captain" Dragon and 73-year-old Toni Tennille are going their separate ways, after nearly 40 years of marriage.
Dragon reportedly told TMZ on Wednesday that he was blindsided by the filing.

I heard that the Captain had no idea until he was served with papers. Sad after all those years but no one knows but them what truly happened... and maybe only one of them.
Love didn’t keep them together? Oh noes.
Muskrat love won’t keep us together. . . .
I heard he has Parkinson’s.
At 73 years old, I’d think that Toni would welcome The Captian’s tremors...at the appropriate time.
Why would anyone want to get married? About half of all marriages end in divorce. The rest end in DEATH!!!
Time to “Shop Around”
It may have to do with protecting assets. The Captain has Parkinson’s. He’ll qualify for a lot more assistance if all their assets are in her name completely unattached to him. Otherwise, they’ll bled dry and there’ll be nothing left for her assuming she outlives him by 10 to 15 years.
Does he get to keep the hideous cap of his?
I bet they are getting divorced for better premium subsidies under ObamaCare.
That was my first thought.... I can’t wait for the tell-all book by the muskrat.
Divorced?!?! I didn’t know they were still alive.
Good insight on your part.
I have the same feeling I had when Buddy Ebsen filed to divorce his wife of forty-odd years at age 78.
I mean, really, if you’ve made it THIS far...
I didn’t care for their music, but something about Toni Tennille... I thought she was hot.
Shields and Yarnell divorced in 1986.
Lorraine Yarnell died in Europe in 2010.
So I told my better half about this story and she asked, “Why are they getting divorced? After 40 years of marriage they probably aren’t even talking to one another”.
What about Peaches & Herb?
I believe she’s dead and Shields runs some kind of tourist trap in Arizona somewhere.
That’s it. The apocalypse can’t be far behind.
At this point in their lives... what’s the point?
Did they each find a new “hottie”?
Piece of trivia... Toni Tenille was the only female to ever play for the Beach Boys.
I love how the Marxist propaganda machine posing as our impartial media is burying the REAL reason they are getting divorced which is the stop the Marxists from stealing their money under Obamacommiecare. This is quite common now, in an effort to break the American family the Marxists are punishing married couples through Obamacommiecare and some people have no choice but to get divorced or face financial ruin. Her husband is sick with Parkinsons so you can imagine the medical costs especially the Marxist mandated deductibles. I mean please: They been married 40 years, they are in their 70s and NOW they are getting divorced? Yeah OK.
....oooops! Never mind.
Ain’t it the truth... now if Olive Oil leaves Popeye of Brutus... it’s on!
i did not think they were married... she did marry, and she and her hubby were Christian artists... they performed at the church i was attending back in the early 90s...
LOL! oh nooo I remember them! My God, who would have ever though Mimes would have had their own national TV show? “Hell let’ torture the public!” Tv in the 70s was completely insane, I was talking about this with my brother the other day. Remember all the cancer movies they use to have? All the TV “family movies of the week” of people dying of cancer, Brians song, Death not be proud, A shining season on and on and on every freakin’ week another movie of someone dying of cancer. Oh yes and in between totally bizarre monster movies like SSSSS or the Gargoyles or Dont be afraid of the dark, what a depressing time, and at then we had to deal with the 2nd worst POTUS of all time Mr. Peanut...hey maybe it was better back then LOL!
I think they sold their naming rights to a porno and marijuana site.
I actually saw them perform live one time at the Flint Center (De Anza College) in Cupertino. Late 70s.
I hope Esther and Abi are still together!
I wasn’t aware that there have been several “Peaches “ over the years. They were singing partners, not husband and wife.
Ping. I wonder if it is due to the death of their muskrat?
TV today is evil. The cop shows are all dishonest; the sit-coms all promote faggotry.
You’re not the only one advancing that theory...according to TMZ (yeah, consider the source), the divorce papers specifically mention The Captain’s medical condition. Rather odd, since she filed and once she’s a “free woman,” she won’t have any obligation for his care.
Sounds like the start of the Medicaid shuffle...he will need long-term custodial care in the near future; Medicare Part A won’t cover, and they have too many assets to qualify for Medicaid. So, they get divorced, she claims all the assets, and he becomes “poor enough” for Medicaid.
Happens every day.
She and the Captain are both former Beach Boys, although they weren’t in the band at the same time.
I think that's exactly what it is. I think The Captain is trying to put on an act, to be more convincing about it.
Can't say I blame them if that's the case.
With Bruce Johnston of the Beach Boys as well.
“Why would anyone want to get married? About half of all marriages end in divorce. The rest end in DEATH!!!”
You’re killin’ me, lol!
Indeed it does, there are TV commercials which allude to "legal solutions" to "medical bankruptcy".
Better than the "solution" several older couples in my area decided upon? They opted for joint suicide after splurging one last year!
Obviously, their solution was in the interest of their heirs and fellow taxpayers so, you can personally debate the options (and pray you are not presented with the ultimate choice....!)
