Ex-wife says, 'Bye bye' to Mr. American Pie.

By Robyn Collins

(RADIO.COM) – A Maine court has granted Patrisha McLean an order of protection against her ex-husband, “American Pie” singer Don McLean, that will last two years.

The order follows a domestic violence assault by McLean in July 2016. At the time, McLean pled guilty and his attorney said he would’ve had a punishment of a $3,000 fine if he could stay out of trouble for a year. No word as to how his inability to do so will affect any further fine.

Patrisha says she’s glad the order was granted. The songwriter’s attorney did not return a phone call looking for comment, according to Billboard.

McLean also lost his temper with his ex-wife in January 2016 and was arrested for domestic abuse. He was released on $10,000 bail.
