Slash has filed for divorce from his second wife, Perla.
The couple filed for divorce in Los Angeles on Thursday, April 27.
Slash met Perla after the divorce of his first wife Renee in 1997. The couple became engaged in 2000 and married in Maui later that year. The couple had their first child, London Hudson, in 2002 and then along came Cash Anthony Hudson in 2004.
Things have not gone well for the relationship ever since Perla took over management of Velvet Revolver. This lead to reports of a Velvet Revolver break-up a few weeks ago. Those reports were quickly denied by the band. Velvet Revolver are currently recording their second album.
Velvet Revolver rockers Scott Weiland and Duff McKagan showed up Tuesday at 12th & Porter for the regular weekly jam session for MuzikMafia, the music fraternity that helped launch Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson.
The place was packed because Kiefer Sutherland musical discovery Rocco DeLuca was playing, and rumors were that Kiefer might show. (He didn't.)
It also was packed because there were rumors that Velvet's Scott (formerly of Stone Temple Pilots) and Duff (formerly of Guns N' Roses) — in town to be, of all things, guest judges on Nashville Star — would show. (They did.)
Scott and Duff hit the MuzikMafia stage after sets by Big & Rich, Shannon Lawson and James Otto. The Velvet Revolver guys did three or four songs, including a Stone Temple Pilots song or two.
