Toni Tennille has filed for divorce from husband, Daryl Frank Dragon, or as he's popularly known, Captain. The 73-year-old songstress officially filed paperwork in Arizona on Jan. 16 after 39 years of marriage. Dragon, 71, and Tennille's professional performing duo, Captain & Tennille, were best known for their series of '70-'80s hits including, "Muskrat Love" and "Do That to Me One More Time."

The former couple wed on Nov. 11, 1974 and released their first album, "Love Will Keep Us Together," the following year.
