Bruce Springsteen has reportedly split from Patti Scialfa, his wife of 20 years, to shack up with a 9/11 widow.
Friends of the rocker claim Springsteen and Scialfa had separated in secret after he fell for a redhead he met when he organized a September 11th telethon, America: A Tribute To Heroes.
A source tells the New York Post newspaper, "They're separated, but everyone has been sworn to secrecy. We're not supposed to talk about it."
Although Springsteen enjoyed a recent vacation with Scialfa and their three children, he has been spotted near his New Jersey home with the mystery woman.
Scialfa's mother Victoria tells the newspaper, "I don't know anything about it; I don't want to talk about it." A rep for the singer also refused to comment.
