One of the world’s coolest rock couples are soon to be no more, with Aussie born Brody Dalle reporting separating from Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.
For almost 14 years, one of the most iconic pairings in rock music was that of Brody Dalle and Josh Homme. Having been married since late 2005, the duo appeared as one of the strongest couples in music, collaborating on numerous occasions and even accompanying each other on tour.
However, as TMZ now reports, Australian-born Dalle has now filed for separation, filing the appropriate documentation on Friday, November 15th.
Having first met back in the ’90s, it wasn’t until the early ’00s that the pair struck up a relationship, marrying soon after and going on to have two children together.
Speaking about their relationship last year, Homme referred to Dalle as his “punk-rock dream girl”, and explainied just how they ended up together.
“I met Brody when she was 17 and I was 23,” he recalled in an interview with The Brisbane Times. “It was her first day in the US after relocating from Melbourne and I was playing guitar in the Screaming Trees.
“She came up to me backstage and asked if I was in Kyuss. We talked for an hour and a half and I never forgot her.”

“I didn’t like her ex [Rancid’s Tim Armstrong], so I lied and said I had made out with her in the hope that he would find out. I didn’t see her again until seven years later.
“Our bands played the Big Day Out in Australia in 2003,” he concluded. “I was with someone in a casual way but had my eye out for Brody and saw her walking past. I pretended I didn’t see her and tried to be cool. From that moment we clicked and it was on. We’ve been together ever since.
“I never thought I would get married, but I found someone I couldn’t live without.”
We wish both of them the best during what must be a difficult situation.
