Marriage Problems for Paul Simon

Singer Paul Simon and his songbird spouse held hands and faced the music together Monday after they were busted for a spat that got physical at their Connecticut house.

Dressed in a navy blue suit and a green fedora that he took off before taking the stand, Simon admitted to a judge that he and Edie Brickell hit some troubled marital waters, but insisted “both of us are fine together.”

“We’re going to go home and watch our son play baseball,” Simon said in the Norwalk, Conn., courtroom where he and Brickell were arraigned on disorderly conduct charges. “We had an argument, which is atypical of us. Neither of us has any fear, or any reason to be threatened.”

Brickell, dressed in ankle boots and skinny brown jeans and towering over her diminutive husband, chimed in, “He’s no threat to me at all.”

Judge William Wenzel cut the couple a break and declined to issue a protective order on the condition that they behave themselves — and that there are “no acts or threats of violence with respect to either party.”

Then Simon, 72, and Brickell, 47, left the courtroom hand-in-hand. They are due back in court May 16. “Edie and I are fine,” Simon told reporters. “We love each other, we had an argument, that’s all.”

Simon’s lawyer, who tried but failed to get the media barred from the brief proceeding, called the Saturday spat “a minor situation,” but suggested Brickell and her meddling mother bore the brunt of the blame.

“It was a normal husband-and-wife discussion,” Allan Cramer said. “Paul didn't want to discuss it and she did. He tried to leave and she kind of locked the door. I don't think he started the shoving." Alarmed, Brickell’s mom, Mary, called the cops, he said reports Daily News.
