Shifty Shellshock's Wife Files for Divorce

6/11/2011 1:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Melissa Binzer filed the divorce docs in L.A. County Superior Court recently -- citing irreconcilable differences.

But here's the interesting part -- they share a 7-year-old son, who has type 1 diabetes. Melissa claims Shifty has no idea how to take care of a diabetic child, so she's demanding full legal and physical custody.

On top of that, Melissa claims Shifty has struggled with drug and alcohol addictions for a long time, and she fears he "would not create a suitable environment" for their son.

Melissa and Shifty -- real name Seth Binzer -- got married in 2002, but have been separated for nearly six years.
