Slash Files For Divorce In Los Angeles

Slash is preparing to go solo in his love life.

Court records show the guitarist filed for divorce Monday (Aug. 30) from his wife of nearly nine years.

The filing states Slash - his real name is Saul Hudson - and his wife Perla separated in July and cites irreconcilable differences for the split.

The couple have two sons, ages eight and six. Slash is seeking joint custody of the children and asking a judge to determine how much spousal support he should pay.

The divorce filing was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.
