According to legal docs just filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Slash -- real name Saul Hudson -- cites irreconcilable differences. Slash and wife Perla Ferrar have two boys, age 6 and 8.  Slash is asking for joint physical and legal custody.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ the breakup is extremely acrimonious.

Slash, who is repped by disso-queen Laura Wasser, is willing to pay spousal support, according to the docs. There is no prenup.

The couple was married in October 2001. Slash lists the date of separation as July 15, 2010.

Cripes, talk about some posters with anger issues...leave the Slashter alone. The guy has more talent in one finger than you guys will ever have in 20 lifetimes

She does seem like a handful, but Slash knew that when he married her! They separate in July but wait until the week his tour starts at the end of August to announce it? Maybe Slash is having trouble filling the clubs so a little publicity...

Dude has a serious personality disorder and hidden anger---he's on record as saying he hasnt spoken to Axl Rose since 1996...hold a grudge much Slash? Maybe thats part of the broken marriage too huh dude? Guy turns on the people who helped make him famous in the public and at home too I guess..who knows what the real truth is here.

#20 ---really? do you know the guy? Axl's on record as saying Slash is a cancer and basically he has no wish or desire to speak to slash as long as slash lives. And 3 of the other members of the same band turned on Axl as well; and just so you know, he is in a band w/ 2 former bandmates from GnR - so sure, he turned on them.....

When I met him, the ex-wife must have just bitched him out, because he was an A-hole.
Everyone posting seems to think he's a nice guy.
Must have caught him on a bad day...

I'm surprised. They seemed very tight. Yeah Perla is 'colourful' but in a charming way and Slash loved the hell out of her. I talked to them a month ago and was not aware of any issues (any different than little fights that meant nothing anyway).

She's getting half of everything he,they've earned from the date they married plus child support (because the court always leans in the woman's favor)and I would imagine a fairly nice sum in alimony so my advice would be not to waste time and money in court postponing the inevitable just calculate what you owe and get on with your life.

Calling Slash untalented is like calling The Beatles just another rock band. Plus there's 3 sides to every story. His sider, her side and the truth. Stop judging and hating. The man is brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Met Slash this past Spring at a restaurant. He was very gracious and took a photo with my 10 year old son (who was awestruck) and gave an autograph. He couldn't have been more of a gentlemen. Sorry to hear about this.
And he's an amazing guitarist.

what He said    

Slash Saul Hudson is the nicest guy ever!!!! This is surprising and shocking! He autographed a photo upon my request and even drew a cartoon too. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him. I have seen him with his wife and kids and they look like the happiest family ever. This is sad.
