Saul Hudson is a rock and roll musician. He plays lead guitar for the group
Guns N’ Roses. He is better known by his stage name
Slash. Slash and
Guns N’ Roses are very famous in the rock and roll genre. The band has been together
for more than 30 years, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame in 2012. The members are also very rich. In their
This Lifetime Tour of 2016 alone, the band grossed over $480 million dollars!
In October of 2001, Slash married fashion model Perla Ferrar. Their first
son was born in 2002, and their second son was born in 2004. They separated
permanently in 2014, Slash filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.
The divorce process has been contentious since the very beginning. Continuous
arguments over temporary spousal support, temporary child support, and
currently permanent distribution of assets, debts and support. As of August
31, 2018, the divorce process was still not settled.
According to TMZ, Slash accuses Ferrar of delaying the process for trivial
reasons, including that he is hiding assets from her and that his current
girlfriend is harassing Farrar on social media outlets. He claims he is
not hiding assets from Ferrar, but that a lot of his income comes from
business sources he created before they were married. If so, he contends,
those sources would be his separate property and not subject to the divorce.
Slash also claims that Ferrar wants him to purchase a
third set of drums for their son, and then she bought a
fourth set of drums for the teen. Then she asked Slash to reimburse her for the
fourth set! He includes this example as one of the “trivial reasons”
Ferrar is holding up the divorce.
Again, according to TMZ, “…Slash says Perla is griping about
ways they stay in contact -- insisting she be allowed to call him directly
for custody scheduling or emergencies. He says they'd already agreed
to use a program that eliminates the need to talk directly ... but she's
insisting she be able to get on the horn with her ex whenever she thinks
the need arises.”
After the post regarding Slash appeared on the TMZ website, TMZ contacted
Ferrar’s attorney, Marty Singer, to respond.
According to Singer, "Slash is well aware of the significant claims
that have been made by Perla as to why the divorce documents cannot be
finalized at this time…These include claims reflected in [Ferrar]’s
court filings that there was a multi-million dollar audit settlement that
was concealed from [Ferrar], not paying in excess of $1,500,000 in child
and spousal support payments, and significant advances received by Slash
that will affect his future spousal and child support payments."
Further according to Singer, "Even though Slash reported over $45,000,000
of income last year, my client’s court papers allege that he refused
to pay for a $1500 drum set that was requested by his son, a musician
in a band, so that he could have a drum set at his mother’s home
where he spends approximately 90% of his time. The other drum sets are
at Slash’s home and studio where Slash does not allow his teenage
son to remove them.”
The rich have bigger and richer problems.
