Sarah-Jane and Dani Sparn split a few months ago.
They were considered the dream couple of Swiss musicians. But now the love of pop singer Sarah-Jane (37) and her husband, band leader Dani Sparn (36), is over. “Yes it’s right.” Privately, we are no longer a couple, »says Sarah-Jane. “But music will continue to be our common passion.” Dani Sparn confirms: “We separated at the end of September after four and a half years of marriage, but we remain friendly.”
Sarah-Jane showed no sign of separation pain at yesterday’s traditional Lachner Christmas Magic. Among other things, she sang Puccini’s favorite aria “Oh mio bappino caro”. Her estranged husband listened in the audience.
Couple for ten years
Dani Sparn stood by the singer’s side for ten years. The couple also had to go through difficult times: in 2019, Sarah-Jane suffered two miscarriages, each in the ninth week of pregnancy. “If our thoughts then revolved only around the desire to have a family, we would have broken it,” they said at the time. “We made arrangements ourselves – even without children. We had to learn how to be happy too!”
Other couples might fail sooner if several inseminations fail. Dani Sparn said at the time: “I admire Sarah’s strength.”
The dogs gave them strength
Papillon dogs Wilma (3) and Bounty (1) finally returned the couple’s happiness. But it shouldn’t take forever.
The love crisis started half a year ago. The other partners were not supposed to get involved. “We just drifted apart,” Sarah-Jane points out.
Dani Sparn has now moved out of the house built in Rothenfluh BL in 2015, where the dogs also live. Six months ago, she kept saying, “I’d like to grow old with Dani in this house. He was a support in good times and bad. And he takes me as I am – with all my rough edges.”
The musical collaboration remains
“We want to remain friends on a musical level,” emphasizes the bandleader. “We’re going to the studio together again.” And Sarah-Jane says: “I know our separation is a surprise to many. But life sometimes takes a different path than you would like.”
“There’s an angel saving me,” Sarah-Jane sang on her album “Mit Herz und Soul,” released in the spring. In it, she describes how she is reading a book on the farm and suddenly an angel puts a protective hand on her shoulder.
This time the guardian angel did not come.
