AceShowbiz - Not so long after reporting that Slash's marriage with wife Perla Hudson was on the rocks, TMZ said that the musician had decided to divorce her. According to the site, he filed the divorce papers on Tuesday, December 30 in Los Angeles.
Slash, whose real name is Saul Hudson, cites the usual "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. He listed their date of separation as June 15 and is requesting joint physical and legal custody of their children, 12-year-old London and 10-year-old Cash.
Before the divorce news broke, Perla and the kids flew to Hawaii over the weekend. She reportedly told her husband their marriage would be over if their issues were not worked out by New Year's Day.
Slash, a former guitarist of Guns N' Roses, and his wife first met at the band's concert afterparty in Las Vegas. They later got married in 2001. He previously filed for divorce from Perla in 2010, but the couple reconciled two months later. They renewed their wedding vows in 2011.
