Dweezil Zappa -- Marriage in the Crappa

3/29/2010 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former MTV VJ Dweezil Zappa's marriage is coming to an end -- but not before he could continue his father Frank Zappa's obsession with giving children ridiculous names.

Dweezil's wife just filed for divorce in L.A. County Superior Court, and according to the documents, she wants Dweez to share joint legal custody of their two daughters: Zola Frank and Ceylon Indira.

In the docs, Dweezil's wife of five years -- Lauren Knudsen -- cited irreconcilable differences.

Just to jog your memory, Dweezil's sisters are named Moon Unit and Diva.

TMZ, you post a story about Dweezil Zappa but you can't RIP Robert Kulp? Who knows who Dweezil is and who knows that he is or was married?

The only thing Dweezil has done is be born to Frank Zappa and have a weird name that his parents gave him. (Nobody say "He worked on MTV with his sister, Moon Unit, in the 80's.") That was almost 30 yrs ago.

Way to go, TMZ!!!
