Stone Temple Pilots Guitarist’s Wife Alleges Abuse; Files for Divorce
Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo’s wife, Jenn, has filed for divorce amid claims of physical and verbal abuse, TMZ is reporting.
According to the filed documents filed just a few weeks ago, Jenn alleges Dean threatened her with violence after telling her he was cheating on her — in front of their six-year-old daughter. Additionally, she claims that Dean “completely inebriated” as he carried their then-newborn daughter into the ocean and nearly let her drown.
Other charges include attempted strangulation, and physical assault after Dean was found in the garage passed out with the engine of the car running and door closed.
Jenn addressed the situation on Twitter, writing: “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 #domesticabuse #metoo.”
She then continued: “I was in one with #DeanDeLeo for the past 8 years!!!
