Latest posts by Stephanie Jensen (see all)

I often wonder if rock music fans think about their favorite musicians’ significant others. After all, it takes a lot of strength to be in a serious relationship with a musician.

Your partner is on the road all year, often partying, and you need a lot of trust in your marriage or relationship. I dated touring musicians in the past and have many friends who are married to musicians. I also love discovering the lives of musicians’ life partners and knowing what it’s like to be with a legend.

This brings me to the Susan Acevedo bio. Acevedo is the former wife of Canadian rockstar Neil Young. What is she doing now? What was her life like when she was married to the rockstar?

Early Life

We don’t know much about Susan Acevedo’s life before marrying Neil Young. We know that she was born in the United States and is of American nationality.

Neil Young did describe her as Sicilian, but we’re unsure how far back her Sicilian heritage goes. There are also no accounts of her date of birth, though rumors say she’s older than Young. She also never mentioned her parents or siblings to the public.

Professional Career

At the time when she met Neil Young, Susan was working as a hostess at a restaurant. It’s presumed she has since quit her job, but it’s unclear what she does now.

She may have another profession, or maybe she left the working world and is now retired. We know she got remarried and had a daughter, but little about her life is known now.


Little is known about Susan Acevedo’s parents and siblings. We know she has a daughter named Tia. It’s also unclear if she had a child with Neil Young.

Young has a son, Zeke, and it was assumed that he had his son with Susan. However, Zeke wasn’t born until two years after the couple was divorced. Young must have had Zeke with another woman, possibly his later wife Pegi.

Neil Young used to have breakfast at Topanga Canyon Kitchen. While eating breakfast there one day, he met the restaurant’s hostess and waitress, Susan Acevedo. She would wait on him and serve him food. Eventually, the two got to know each other and hooked up. Shortly after, they started a romantic relationship.

Divorcing Neil Young

Susan Acevedo filed for divorce only two years after marrying Neil Young. Young was working extra hard on his music career. He was always away to record albums, was on tour, and even traveled to rehearsals, leaving Susan alone in their home. The pair were officially divorced in 1970.
