Perhaps there’s something in the air in Hollywood. Just as Courteney Cox has come out saying she and husband David Arquette are not divorcing, but on a “trial separation,” former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash seems to have had second thoughts about ending his marriage as well.
According to TMZ, two months after filing for divorce from his wife of nine years, Perla Ferrar, the rocker has filed a request for dismissal in Los Angeles Superior Court. Slash, born Saul Hudson, filed divorce papers in late August, citing irreconcilable differences with Ferrar, with whom he has two boys, ages 6 and 8.
At the time, sources close to the couple, who had no prenup, said the divorce was expected to be “extremely acrimonious.” The date of separation listed on the divorce papers was July 15, 2010.
Slash seemed serious about the split, hiring famed divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who has handled the splits of a number of high-profile clients, including Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie and Kiefer Sutherland.
In March, Slash released his first proper solo album, which featured appearances from three of the members of Appetite for Destruction-era Guns N’ Roses (Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan and Steven Adler), in addition to cameos by Fergie, Ozzy Osbourne, Chris Cornell, Lemmy and Dave Grohl.
The video for the album’s latest single, “Beautiful Dangerous,”
features an obsessed, leather thong-baring Fergie stalking Slash and drugging him before tying him to a bed and having her way with him … or does she?
