The Ex-Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash is heading to Splitsville. According to papers filed at the Los Angeles County Superior Court a few days ago, the rocker, 45, has filed for divorce from his wife of nine years. Slash has cited “irreconcilable differences” as the cause of the split from Perla Ferrar. The two tied the knot in October 2001 and have two boys together, London Emilio, 8, and Cash Anthony, 6.
Slash, whose real name is Saul Hudson, is asking for legal and physical custody of their children and will pay spousal support. The popular celebrity gossip website TMZ.com reported that the divorce is “extremely acrimonious” and noted the date of separation as July 15, 2010. Slash’s rep says the opposite, and from his point of view, the split is friendly.
The marriage to Perla Ferrar is Slash’s second set of nuptials. He split up with his first wife, Renee Suran, back in 1997 after being married for five years. Many close to the couple say that being a married dad seemed to influence Slash in the best way. The rocker who is known for his rebellious lifestyle has recently announced that he has given up alcohol and drugs. Slash explains, “I quit doing drugs. But because I’m a habitual kind of guy, if I quit doing drugs, then I drink. And then if I quit drinking, I do drugs – forever. So I quit doing drugs this one time, and I decided not to drink too. It’s been four years. And I really don’t miss it.” Good luck to him in the future!
