Natalie Imbruglia and Daniel Johns split up

Natalie Imbruglia has split from her rock star husband Daniel Johns.

The Torn singer announced the pair have decided to end their four-year marriage after “growing apart” due to the pressures of work.

In a joint statement they said: “While we are very sad that our marriage has ended we want to make it clear that our parting is amicable and we remain friends. This mutual decision has not been taken lightly or quickly.

“However, our career demands and our lives in different parts of the world have brought us to the point where unfortunately this difficult decision was necessary for both of us.

“We have simply grown apart through not being able to spend enough time together. We have issued this statement to set the record straight and to eliminate any need for speculation.”

Imbruglia, 32, is based in the UK, while 28-year-old Silverchair frontman Johns has been living in their home country of Australia.

The pair met in 1999 and married on New Year’s Eve in 2003 in a beachside ceremony in Queensland, Australia.
