MILFORD Conn. (Reuters) - Grammy Award-winning musician Paul Simon and his wife, singer Edie Brickell, are due in court on Tuesday at a hearing on a fight the couple had in April at their Connecticut home to which police were called.
Simon, 72, and Brickell, 48, are scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court for a third time before Judge William Wenzel, who denied their plea to keep cameras out of his courtroom at their last appearance on May 16.
At that time, the pair told the judge that the spat was atypical of their relationship and that they posed no threat to one another.
Disorderly conduct charges were filed against the couple after New Canaan police were called to a cottage on their property in the wealthy Connecticut suburb on April 26.
Simon had attempted to leave the cottage, Brickell blocked the door and the incident escalated into a shoving match, their attorney said.
Simon was given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2003 for his work as part of the duo Simon and Garfunkel, which produced hits including "The Sound of Silence," and is a member of The Songwriters Hall of Fame, according to his website.
Brickell, best known for the 1988 hit "What I Am," released by Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, won a Grammy this year with comedian Steve Martin for their bluegrass song "Love Has Come for You."
