It turns out that when Tom DeLonge was singing “Say it ain’t so, I will not go,” he wasn’t exactly singing about his soon-to-be ex-wife. TMZ got their hands on divorce papers that were recently filed by Tom, and Jennifer DeLonge is NoLonger the person he wants to turn the lights off and carry him home.
Tom, who was once in Blink-182 and is now a guy who searches “Are Mulder and Scully real people?” on the internet, filed for divorce in San Diego County Superior Court. Tom chose “irreconcilable differences” for the reason why they’re divorcing. Tom and Jennifer share two kids: 17-year-old Ava and 13-year-old Jonas Rocket. He’s asking for joint legal and physical custody of Ava and Jonas. He hasn’t discussed spousal support at this time.
That “All The Small Things” joke up top wasn’t really a joke – Tom wrote “All The Small Things” about Jennifer while they were still dating, and they were together for a long time. Tom and Jennifer knew each other in high school, started dating in 1996, and got married in 2001.
The date of separation listed on Tom’s divorce papers is December 2017, which probably won’t surprise too many people familiar with Tom’s UFO side project. In 2015, Tom claimed that the government was watching him, because he allegedly knew “too much” about aliens. Last year we learned that Tom’s UFO research project, To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science Inc., was allegedly $37 million in debt, and that he had borrowed some money from another company in an attempt to keep To the Stars afloat.
Although that’s not to say that Tom is spending his days in his basement, wearing a pair of tinfoil skate shoes, convinced the old lumpy brown sleeping bag crumpled up in the corner is an alien from Mac and Me. Tom is currently on tour with his side project, Angels & Airwaves.
Aside from irreconcilable differences, there isn’t a definite reason for why Tom wanted out after nearly two decades of marriage. But if I had to guess, I’d say it’s because he’s a man of integrity. The Storm Area 51 event was scheduled for this Friday, but last week we learned that it isn’t happening anymore. Tom probably heard the event was cancelled and proudly declared, “Uh huh, that’s just what the government WANTS you to believe.” So Tom is still totally going to go and see what’s up at Area 51. And if Tom is going to bang a sexy lady alien – which he will because they 100% exist and hang out at Area 51 – he’s going to want to do it honestly. There will be no shady hiding of his wedding ring before any inter-species Area 69, no sir.
