CaddySmacked? Murray's Wife Claims Abuse

5/29/2008 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bill Murray's wife says he's no joke -- she's filed for divorce, alleging he's a sex and drug addict, he abandoned her, cheated and physically abused her.

Jennifer Butler Murray, Bill's wife of ten years, filed court documents on May 12 in a Charleston, S.C. family court. The couple has a home in the area.

In documents obtained by the Charleston Post & Courier, Jennifer is asking a judge to issue a restraining order that will keep Bill away from her home.

According to court docs, Jennifer and the couple's four children moved out of the family home in 2006 because of what she says was her husband's "adultery, addiction to marijuana and alcohol, abusive behavior, physical abuse, sexual addictions and frequent abandonment." The docs also say the star "hit his wife in the face and then told her she was 'lucky he didn't kill her' " and that this happened more than once during their marriage. Holy Groundhog Day!

UPDATE: A statement released by his lawyer says, "Bill Murray is deeply saddened by the dissolution of his marriage to Jennifer. Mr. and Mrs. Murray remain loving parents, committed to the best interests of their children. Mr. Murray asks that the public respect his family's privacy at this difficult time."

If this "happened more than once during their marriage" why didn't she take their kids (seems she stuck around long enough to have lots of them) and get out sooner? Let's hear his side of this.

I am completely unsurprised by this. He's aged like an addict does. I hope she gets every last dime.

I agree Kay, sounds like she's trying to make the pre-nup null and void by telling a few twisted tales.

Once a couple starts having children, the Pre-Nup goes out the window.

I know Andie Mcdowell through a friend. She said that while they were filming Groundhog Day, he was nothing but an ass, and tried putting the moves on her any chance he could get... I like his films, but as a human being, he needs some work.

If he hit you once you should have left with the children then. If you stayed around for more and subjected your children to abuse YOU are the bad parent. It isn't like you didn't have access to money to run with the kids. If it was that bad why was the prenup one of the first things mentioned and not the safety of the kids.
