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 two-year order replaces a previous, temporary order.
The order follows a domestic violence assault by McLean in January of 2016. At the time, McLean pled guilty and according to his attorney would be subject to a $3,000 fine if he could stay out of trouble for a year (via Billboard).
In a statement to the Associated Press by his attorneys, Don Mclean confirmed that he has no contact with his ex-wife and will obey the terms of an order of protection she received in court.
