Naomi Judd Files for Divorce

11/07/1997 at 12:00 AM EST

Country music queen Naomi Judd has filed for divorce, accusing husband Larry Strickland of "adultery during the marriage," said her court papers. Both Judd and Strickland, who were married in 1989, are 54. He was formerly a backup singer for Elvis Presley and, for the past four years, has managed the career of Judd's daughter from a previous marriage, Wynonna. (Naomi's younger daughter is actress Ashley Judd.) Earlier this year Naomi and Wynonna were reunited in concert as the Judds -- co-managed by Strickland -- after a 10-year break from performing together that was caused by Naomi's bout of chronic hepatitis.
