Slash Cancels Divorce
Slash has called off his divorce.
The former Guns N' Roses rocker - real name SAUL HUDSON - has changed his mind about ending his marriage to wife Perla Ferrar, despite filing papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court in August citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason behind the split.
The guitarist has now filed a request for dismissal of the divorce, gossip website TMZ reports.
Slash and Perla have been married for nine years and have two sons together, London Emilio, eight and six-year-old Cash Anthony.
The guitarist - who had listed the date of separation as July 15 2010 - originally requested joint physical and legal custody of the two boys and said he was willing to pay spousal support.
The split was said to be "extremely acrimonious".
This is Slash's second marriage after splitting from first wife Renee Suran in 1997 after a five-year union.
Slash - who is renowned for his rock 'n' roll lifestyle - had credited marriage to Perla and fatherhood as having a calming influence on his when he recently revealed he no longer drinks or takes drugs.
The 45-year-old musician said: "I quit doing drugs. But because I'm a habitual kinda guy, if I quit doing drugs, then I drink. And then if I quit drinking, I do drugs - forever. So I quit doing drugs this one time, and I decided not to drink too. It's been four years. And I really don't miss it."
