Ex-GUNS N’ ROSES and VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash and his wife Perla celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary earlier tonight (Monday, August 29) by renewing their marriage vows in Ibiza. Slash posted a message on his Facebook page which read, “Perla and I had a beautiful ceremony. The reception is still going. It’s been a really special evening. Thanks to all the well-wishers.”
The Hudsons have been married since October 15, 2001 and have two sons named London and Cash. Slash filed for divorce from Perla last summer but the couple reconciled two months later. Slash was married once before to Renee Suran.
Around the time his second son was born, Slash told The Pulse Of Radio that becoming a family man helped settle him down. “I never actually was one of those guys that said I’m gonna be single forever and never have children,” he said. “I just never made plans for it, so when it happened, it was, like, at the perfect time in my life. It’s like, if it had happened a second earlier, I couldn’t have handled it, ’cause I was too out there. Then when the kids came, it actually sort of secured me, more than anything.”
The couple recently put their Los Angeles mansion up for sale with an asking price of $9.5 million. The seven-bedroom, eight-bath property is in a gated community where the neighbors include Paris Hilton, Charlie Sheen and Vanna White.
Slash sold a number of personal possessions in March, including cars and guitars, with a sizeable portion of the proceeds going to a charity for abused and homeless adolescents.
The guitarist is also working on pre-production for his second solo album, expected to be released in the spring of 2012.
