Barry BondsTMZ has learned Barry Bonds' wife has filed for legal separation.

Bonds and Liz Watson were married in 1998. They have one daughter together. It is his second marriage.

Liz greeted Bonds when he hit his history making 755th* home run in 2007.

The papers, filed Friday in L.A. County Superior Court, cite irreconcilable differences.

Liz has requested joint legal and physical custody of their 10-year-old daughter. She's also asking for spousal support.

Why should she be awarded money for being his ex wife? She leaving him, she can get a job. and if he has all this money why not full custody of his kid, and her broke ass can get a job to support her child! Isn't prostitution against the law? then why pay her or any woman for services rendered. Get a job like everyone else!

Just maybe Liz Watson became fed-up with Barry's LYING about his steroid use? It would be refreshing if he'd just admit he used them and put it behind his big, broad ass.

SEEMS MANY STILL HAVEN'T LEARNED that steroids isn't a Bonds issue. IT'S A MLB LEAGUE ISSUE and EPIDEMIC! That means at least half the players in the league are doing what Barry was doing! Now Alex Rodriguez.

Cardinals Mark McGwire got out just before the heat started getting turned up.

Jose Canseco was right! WAKE UP!

leave the gun, take the cannolis.    

Everybody took steroids.
Bonds was still the greatest because everyone cheated, so hes the greatest amongst the cheaters.
Who's to say Aaron didn't do stuff too? They weren't testing then.
Truth be told, Ruth invented the home run ball. Prior to Ruth, the person with the most HR's usually had about 8 or so. Ruth revolutionized the game.
Besides, was Emmett Smith better than Sweetness (Walter Payton)? I doubt it but he has the yardage record.

Of course she wants spousal support. That's the only reason she's divorcing him.

Mrs. Cannavaro,

You wrote "Liz and Barry have one child together, and child support and alimony should be paid accordingly". My question to you is why should alimony be paid accordingly?

I'll tell you why not. She had nothing to do with his ability to play baseball. His ability to play baseball is what enabled him to command such a high salary. Since he is 100% the reason he earns what he does, he should be 100% entitled to spend his earnings as he pleases. She is not an invalid, nor is she incapable of earning a living....she is most likely incapable of earning a living at the same level as he is, but blame god for not endowing her with the same gifts as her soon to be ex-husband. He should not be punished for her shortcomings, nor should she be rewarded. The marriage is done and with it should go the lifestyle that existed within that marriage.
