EAGLE COUNTY, COLORADO: Metallica lead singer James Hetfield has filed for divorce from his wife Francesca after 25 years of marriage.
Sources close to the couple told TMZ the divorce was filed in Colorado earlier this year. In 1997, the two people got married.
Since the former couple chose to keep the news to themselves, the court documents have never been made public. Insiders say the couple are still in contact and are still caring for their three children, Castor, 18, Cali, 20, and Marcella, 16. Reports indicate that the musician lived in Vail, Colorado, where Francesca grew up.

Francesca and James Hetfield
James and Francesca first met in 1992 and married in 1997. They have a son and two daughters. Several people have said that she met her husband James while working as a designer for his heavy metal band, Metallica. James said his wife helped him through some tough times, including his anger control issues.
People say James Hetfield has been sober since 2002. He previously said Francesca helped him deal with his own issues in a “constructive” way. In 2005, the entertainer told NPR that his wife helped him “grow up” when he quit using drugs and dealt with his anger issues in a “direct” way.
In 2016, the musician said on ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ that he went to rehab because he was afraid of losing his family “Fear was a big part of why I did this. . What scared me the most was losing my family. I hit rock bottom when I realized my family was going to leave me because of the things I did on the road. added: “My wife kicked me out of the house, so I was living alone somewhere. I didn’t want that to happen.” [My wife] did the right thing when she kicked me out of the house, which scared me to death. She said, “Hey, you’re not just going to talk to your therapist about it now.” You have to go somewhere and figure out what’s going on. So I did exactly that.
Francesca was Hetfield’s first wife and she sometimes went on tour with him. The couple have yet to tell anyone about their divorce.
