LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Tom Petty's marriage of 22 years is free fallin'.

Jane Petty has filed for separation from the leader of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple have a 14-year-old daughter.

Petty, 42, won a Grammy in February for "You Don't Know How It Feels." His hits include "Free Fallin'" and "Don't Do Me Like That."
