DIANA'S BROTHER SEPARATING FROM HIS WIFE OF 6 YEARS

After four children and six years of marriage, Princess Diana's only brother, Earl Spencer, is separating from his wife.

"Lord and Lady Spencer will live separately for the foreseeable future," The Sun newspaper said Friday, quoting an unidentified spokesman for the earl. "They have no current plans to divorce."Spencer, 30, confirmed earlier this month that his 29-year-old wife, the former model Vic-toria Lockwood, was in a private clinic near London for treatment for addictions and eating disorders. He didn't detail the addictions.

The couple married in 1989 after a six-week romance and had four children in four years, including twin girls. Their only son, 12-month-old Louis, is heir to the title.
