Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen Arrested For Assaulting Wife Libby Titus

Steely Dan main man Donald Fagen has been arrested on Monday in New York after allegedly assaulting his wife, Libby Titus, in their apartment.

According to multiple sources, Fagen pushed his wife into a marble window pain, injuring her right arm. Specifically, the criminal complaint reads that he placed “his hands on her arms and rapidly extending his arms in the direction of said frame, causing her to fall onto the frame and suffer bruising and swelling to her right arm, as well as substantial pain.”

Fagan was arraigned on Tuesday morning in Manhattan criminal court and charged with one count of assault and one count of harassment. He was released on his own recognizance.

Titus has received an order of protection from Fagen and told the New York Post that she would be divorcing her husband.

Titus has actually been in music longer than Fagan. She released her self titled debut album in 1968 and, in 1977, released another self-titled album which was produced by Phil Ramone, Robbie Robertson, Paul Simon and Carly Simon. She is also a co-writer of the song Love Has No Pride with Eric Kaz. Other songwriting partners have included Burt Bacharach, Dr. John and Fagen.

Libby’s previous partners included novelist Barry Titus and musicians Levon Helm (Amy Helm is their daughter) and Dr. John. She married Fagen in 1993.
