Rick Parfitt has ended his relationship with his third wife over the phone.

The Status Quo guitarist reportedly told Lyndsay - whom he had been married to for 10 years - he'd "had enough" after they argued over his health and finances.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Rick phoned Lyndsay the other day to say he'd had enough and was moving out. She's furious. One minute she was caring for him and trying to sort out his finances -- the next she was dumped. The relationship has been tempestuous and now there is no going back."

Rick, 67, and Lyndsay have twins eight-year-old Lily and Tommy together, and the source claims that Lyndsay, 56, is now having to juggle looking after both the children and her elderly mother.

The source continued: "Now she has to care for their twins at the same time she is looking after her elderly mother who is in poor health. Lyndsay is feeling very low and vulnerable.

"They hardly ever communicate and she is constantly worried about their finances in the future. Rick's lifestyle and health problems have added to the strain."

Despite having a whopping 65 chart hits with 'Whatever You Want' hitmakers Status Quo, Rick's indulgence in a lifetime of sex, drugs, and booze had left him with money problems and severe health issues.

The 'Rockin' All Over the World' musician suffered his fourth heart attack whilst on tour in June, after going through a quadruple heart bypass in 1997 and suffering heart attacks in 2011 and 2014.

Speaking about his health, he said previously: "When you live the rock 'n' roll life you pay for it sooner or later."

The musician also put the couple's home in Marbella on the market for £1.5 million, causing a rift between the two about their finances.
