Björn Ulvaeus opens up on ABBA's reunion and new music
ABBA's Björn Ulvaeus has been wed for the last 41 years, but his second marriage is coming to an end.
The couple divorced in 1980, and about six months later, Björn married his second wife Lena Källersjö.
Now, after 41 years of marriage, Björn and Lena have announced that they are separating but will remain friends.
The pair have two children together, Emma Eleonor and Anna Linnea.
"After many wonderful and eventful years, we have decided to go our separate ways," the couple said in a statement.
"We remain close friends and will continue to celebrate our grandchildren’s birthdays and other family holidays together."
Björn and Agnetha's split – and bandmates Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad's divorce in 1981 – were contributing factors in ABBA's break-up the following year.
