Springsteen stole heart of a Jersey housewife, say court papers

Bruce Springsteen’s “Human Touch” made her melt.

Ann Kelly, 45, was a housewife living with her mortgage-broker husband and two children in a $600,000 home in a leafy New Jersey suburb.

But when the married Springsteen entered her life in 2005 — showering her with concert tickets, serenading her during rehearsals and confessing she was on his mind while he toured — the Jersey girl got lost in a “Tunnel of Love,” court records alleged.

The relationship between Kelly and the “Born to Run” singer began with chitchats on the treadmills at a high-priced Red Bank, NJ, gym, but the pace quickened with lunch dates and eventually a full-on affair, her soon-to-be ex-husband claimed.

Ann Kelly had the “nicest ass” at her gym, Bruce Springsteen said, according to a suit. The two allegedly had lunch dates with her two kids present.

Accusations of an illicit tryst came to light after Ann’s husband of 17 years, Arthur Kelly, 46, filed for divorce on March 27, 2009.
