Slash has filed for divorce from his wife.

The 49-year-old rocker submitted court documents seeking to end his 13-year marriage to Perla Hudson in Los Angeles on Tuesday (30.12.14), shortly after she issued him with an ultimatum to clean up his act.

The former Guns N' Roses star - whose real name is Saul Hudson - cited irreconcilable differences and listed their date of separation as June 15th in his legal documents.

He has also requested joint physical and legal custody of their sons, 12-year-old London and 10-year-old Cash, according to gossip website TMZ.com.

Perla unexpectedly flew to Hawaii with their children on Sunday (28.12.14) after threatening to end their marriage unless Slash agreed to sort out their problems by the beginning of 2015.

The former couple have had many arguments during their marriage but one source recently said: ''This time it's different''.

This isn't the first time the couple's marriage has hit the rocks.

In 2010, Slash filed for divorce from his wife - who is also his manager and runs all his companies - but he withdrew the petition two months later when he and Perla worked things out.
