Stella Buckingham’s parents Lindsey Buckingham and Kristen Messner were able to agree to put their divorce on hold and work things out. “Relationships in the long term can be challenging, and they have their ups and downs. You’ve got to take that ride and be willing to take it,” Lindsey told PEOPLE. “I think a lot of relationships were somewhat tested by the lockdown.”

“Over the last year Kristen felt she needed some time to herself, and I have been completely supportive of that. Before this all went down, I was not aware that many people file for divorce and then choose not to follow through.” Lindsey Buckingham added: “Kristen and I agree that is the best course to follow, focusing instead on working on our relationship.”

Lindsey made it known that “Love with someone is initially built on a set of illusions and probably continues to exist with those illusions to some degree. I think part of having a long-term relationship is accepting that you’re never going to really know everything about another person and that you’ve got to concentrate on the things that bring you together and that define you as a single entity and try to let go of some of the other things.”

“We came out the other end with some stuff to sort out. I think that did make the material speak a little louder and more specifically.” Lindsey is the ex-lover of singer, songwriter, and producer Stevie Nicks of the band Fleetwood Mac. Lindsey and Stevie were together for several years before they broke up. Their breakup was chronicled in several songs written by the two.

Songs such as “Silver Springs” and “Dreams” by Stevie Nicks and “Go Your Own Way” and “Second Hand News” by Lindsey Buckingham. Stevie has shared that after her break up with Lindsey, her relationship with him remained tense. “Relations with Lindsey are exactly as they have been since we broke up,” Stevie told Rolling Stone.

“He and I will always be antagonizing to each other, and we will always do things that will irritate each other, and we really know how to push each other’s buttons. We know exactly what to say when we really want to throw a dagger in. And I think that that’s not different now than it was when we were 20. And I don’t think it will be different when we’re 80.”
