Rage Against the Machine

Bummer for the Drummer

Wife Files for Divorce

EXCLUSIVE

0614_brad_wilk_getty
"Rage Against the Machine" drummer (and co-founder) Bradley Wilk has a solo in his future ... 'cause his wife just filed for divorce, TMZ has learned.

Wilk -- who's also beaten the skins for Audioslave and Black Sabbath -- had separated from wife Selene Vigil-Wilk just last Friday ... and 3 days later, she filed the paperwork in L.A. County Superior Court.

According to the documents, obtained by TMZ, the two tied the knot back in 2005 -- and have 2 young children together.

Selene is asking for joint legal custody ... but she wants primary physical, probably because he's a famous rock star ... and rock stars often go on the road.  She's also asking for spousal support.

Calls to Wilk have not been returned.

So many parents are struggling in high conflict divorce with children because of problems that relate to parental alienation. A dynamic where one parent turns the children against the other parent for unjustified reasons and it results in visitation refusal behaviour on the part of the child. If you are a parent or know a parent caught in this dynamic refer them to this website - www.parentalalienation.ca and the Facebook page - Parental Alienation Consulting Services
