In a move that strangely mirrors his character in Lost In Translation, Bill Murray’s wife has filed for divorce, claiming that his "travels overseas where he engages in public and private altercations and sexual liaisons," physical abuse, and addiction to booze and weed has destroyed their marriage.
Jennifer Butler Murray filed divorce papers May 12 in Charleston County. She owns a home on Sullivans Island, S.C., where she lives with the couple’s four children.
The couple signed a prenuptial agreement, which was filed as an exhibit with the divorce papers, before they married in 1997. As part of the agreement, both waived their right to alimony or support if the marriage broke up. However, Murray agreed to pay $7 million to his ex-wife within 60 days of a final divorce decree.
Seven million dollars? CHA-CHING! Now, like most people I think Bill Murray is a god, and while his marijuana and alcohol use gives him a few extra cool points, hitting his wife is CRED LOSS.
