Slash Files for Divorce -- And It's Bad

8/30/2010 3:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Slash has filed for divorce, TMZ has learned, and it's gonna get ugly.


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.

Having known Slash since 1984, having worked at Tower Video with him and Axl both, I can say personally that Slash is a down toearth, humble, shy person. I don't know his wife personally, but from what I have heard from reliable sources, she's the ultimate gash. BTW, not that he has anything to do with this article, but several posters have made reference to Axl, I found him too to be a really nice guy. Not as quiet and humble as Slash, but still a very likable person.And this was dealing withny social setting over the course of several years

So many opinions, sadly most are factually incorrect. Slash chose to be with Perla. I just want Slash to be happy. He could have crashed and burned, but survived and got off the drugs to live more time on this earth so we could all rock on. I love the OG GNR like most fans, am tired of the Axl v Slash crap. GNR was awesome because of the sum of all parts. By the time they all broke up, there was some serious cash shortage. Slash made more money with Guitar Hero than GNR. He deserves respect. He is one of the best guitarists of our time, quite humble and always, about the music first and foremost. rock on slash, single or otherwise.

Nayah - Is that you Perla? Dream on honey - Slash is DONE with your sorry A$$! There will be no reconciliation and he will move on and be VERY happy without you.

I suspect you'll go back to turning tricks and pimping other needy girls.......

You are a disgrace!

Nayah - you were right.

Hey TMZ - maybe you folks can do a follow up on the "Bad Divorce" story you guys announced about 6 weeks back.

I thought you guys were on top of things here at TMZ!


My level of respect for the man has dropped considerably....

He's still a nice guy, but he's seriously P****-Whipped to stay with that lowlife of a pathetic sleaze of a "woman!" It honestly boggles the mind.......

#98 - your level of respect has dropped? I am sure he is losing sleep over your disapproval. People break up and get back together again. Or I guess on the planet you live on, that never happens? It wasn't a PR stunt, rest assured. And feel free to respect him again whenever you see fit, since he is a living legend and one of the greatest guitar gods that ever lived.
