Grammy winner Christopher Cross files for divorce

Christopher Cross, author of "Sailing," has filed for divorce after nearly 19 years of marriage.

Cross, 55, and his wife, Jan, separated Feb. 11.

He cited irreconcilable differences in a divorce petition filed Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The singer is seeking custody of the couple's 17-year-old son, Christopher, and 15-year-old daughter, Madison.

The Grammy winner co-wrote and sang "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" for the 1981 romantic comedy starring Dudley Moore. It won the Oscar for best original song.
