Ex-MTV Host Files

for 'Headbangers' Divorce

EXCLUSIVE

0228-riki-rachtman-gayle-getty90s MTV host Riki Rachtman -- one of the most recognizable faces from Headbangers Ball -- has filed for divorce, TMZ has learned.

Riki -- who also hosted "Rock of Love" on VH1 -- filed the docs against Gayle Rachtman in L.A., citing irreconcilable differences. According to the docs, they were married in 2003 and separated in 2011. They have no minor children.

And how's this for a change ... in the docs Riki says he wants the court to grant Gayle spousal support -- though the amount is not specified.

Headbangers Ball ... back when MTV was cool.

I love how it says, "Headbangers Ball, back when MTV was cool", but when a real metal personality is in the midst of an outrageous court battle (Randy Blythe, Lamb of God), TMZ has yet to have any coverage. So, I guess "metalheads" are only cool if they played crappy glam
music and had big hair.
