LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Marie Osmond and husband Brian Blosil are divorcing after 20 years of marriage, the pair announced Friday.

Osmond, 47, and Blosil, a record producer, have eight children, some of whom are adopted. The two married in a Mormon ceremony in October 1986, and briefly separated in 2000.

``Though our marriage is ending, we continue to have a very amicable relationship. Our marriage has always been a faithful one and neither of us is assigning fault for the divorce,'' they said in a statement released by Osmond's publicist.

``Our children, as always, are our top priority and in our deep love for them we will continue to jointly fulfill our roles as active parents in their daily lives,'' they said.

Osmond earned fame at age 13 with the hit song ``Paper Roses,'' and starred with her brother, Donny Osmond, on television's ``Donny and Marie Show'' during the 1970s.

She and her first husband Stephen Craig divorced in 1985.

Osmond also owns a successful collectibles doll company.
