Celebrity breakups are in a league of their own when it comes to drama. And new developments in the divorce between Guns N’ Roses guitarist, Slash, and his wife of 15 years, Perla Ferrar, is a case study in this. Perla speculates that half of the 51-year-old rock legend’s fortune is worth over $10 million. Oh, and that fortune would be the one she claims she’s entitled to — as there was no prenup.
But Slash, whose real name is Saul Hudson, is throwing a curveball according to TMZ. He claims that the two of them were never actually married. Perla was still legally married to someone else when she and Slash tied the knot in 2001 thanks to a mishandling of divorce paperwork. The error was discovered years into her marriage to Slash and a judge retroactively fixed the mistake in 2009. But Slash says this mistakenullifies their 15-year marriage, shutting down her claim to half of his money.
Welcome to the jungle known as divorce.
