34 of 105: Peter Frampton, a Grammy-winning British rock singer known for the 1975 hit "Baby I Love You Way," filed for divorce from his wife Christina Elfers on June 21, 2011 after almost 15 years of marriage.

In papers filed earlier this week at Los Angeles court, the 61-year-old rock singer cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and also requested that Elfers get physical custody of the couple's 15-year-old daughter Mia, while he would retain visitation rights.

Mia Rose Frampton is an actress who plays Becca Keeler, younger sister of champion gymnast Payson Keeler, on the ABC Family show 'Make It Or Break It.' Elfers also has a daughter named Tiffany from a previous relationship.

Elfers, who also goes by Tina, is Frampton's third wife. The two met in the late 1970s and wed in 1996. They split on New Year's Eve 2010.

The rocker and Mary Lovett, a former model, divorced in 1973 after about three years of marriage. They have no children together. Frampton has two adult children with his second wife, Barbara Gold. The two divorced in 1993 after about 10 years of marriage.
