TMZ reports that Jenn DeLeo , wife of Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo, has filed for divorce, alleging years of abuse by her husband. She filed for divorce after she claimed he made violent threats to her, admitted he was cheating and told her to get out of the house - in front of their 6-year-old daughter.
In court documents, Jenn alleges Dean's behavior started in 2012, shortly after they were married and she gave birth to their daughter; she claims his substance abuse led first to an incident involving the newborn nearly drowning when the guitarist took her into the ocean "while he was completely inebriated", before outlining a pattern of physical assaults and threats in the years since.
Saturday she Tweeted, "I want to give a shout out to anyone who's in a domestic violence situation! It's not your fault for staying so long. Please find the strength to leave. Once you do it's beautiful. Sending love.”
Jenn is reportedly seeking custody of their daughter as well as child/spousal support in the divorce proceedings.
