Perla Hudson, the ex-wife of iconic Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, is selling off rare memorabilia from their 14-year marriage.

By Geordie Gray

Perla Hudson, the ex-wife of iconic Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, is selling off rare memorabilia from their 14-year marriage. The items being sold date from the early ’80s, where Slash began cutting his teeth as a musician on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood to the late ’90s where Slash had established himself as a bonafide rockstar.

Precious items up for grabs include RIAA gold record awards, GN’R collectables, inscribed books from celebrity friends, “cool graphics” t-shirts, gothic furniture and perhaps most importantly, one of Slash’s many top hats.

There will also be a few naughtier items up for grabs. Including a bronze and leather upholstered “Tally Ho” chair and spanking bench designed by Mark Brazier-Jones.

The items being actioned will be exhibited at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City’s Times Square from May 13th to 17th. Bidding can be made either in person or through the Julien’s Auctions website on May 17-18.

“Perla and Slash were the ultimate rock and roll couple,” shared Darren Julien, President/Chief Executive Officer of Julien’s Auctions. “The items in this collection not only personify the sensational love affair and life of this dramatic and glamorous couple but will add tremendous value and bragging rights to any serious rock fan’s collection of memorabilia owned by one of rock and roll’s greatest guitar gods, Slash.”

Perla and Slash were married in 2001. The pair have had two sons together, London Emilio and Cash Anthony born in 2002 and 2004. Their relationship was documented in the 2007 E! TV show True Hollywood Story: Rock Star Wives.

Slash’s Top Hats, Guitar Case, MTV Moonman Highlight Ex-Wife’s ‘Uncoupling Auction’
Julien's Auctions and Perla Hudson to sell "memorabilia and ephemera" from guitarist's career, with portion of proceeds benefit to charity


By Daniel Kreps

Iconic items from Slash‘s Guns N’ Roses tenure – including the guitarist’s top hat, coffin-shaped guitar case and his 1988 MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist – will go to the highest bidder as part of an “uncoupling auction” following Slash’s split from his wife Perla Hudson.

Julien’s Auctions will host the May sale focusing on “some of the most personal and unique items from the magnificent Beverly Hills estate that Perla Hudson and legendary Guns N’Roses guitarist Slash shared during their 14-year marriage as well as memorabilia and ephemera related to Slash’s career,” the auction house said in a statement.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Youth Emerging Stronger (YES), which provide safety, stability and housing to runaway, homeless and foster youth.

Among the more notable items include Slash’s MTV Music Video Award Moonman trophy, which Guns N’ Roses received as the Best New Artist for the “Welcome to the Jungle” video; the Moonman, inscribed with Slash’s name, has a pre-auction estimate of $15,000. Platinum records from Slash’s career and his Hollywood Walk of Fame plaque will also go to auction.

In addition to Slash’s inimitable stage garb – from top hats, leather jackets to snakeskin boots – fans can also bid on the guitarist’s black Jim Dunlop DCR-IFC Wah pedal.

More personable items include items from Slash and Perla’s wedding, like her “beaded and sequin top hat wedding veil” and “a sculpted plastic wedding cake topper custom fitted with top hat, veil, and hair to represent the couple.” There was also handwritten love letters the couple exchanged and “a Stephen McSwain Wicked Witch of the West guitar, signed ‘For Perla, Merry Xmas & Happy Valentine’s Day from your loving husband Slash.'”

Slash and Perla’s “uncoupling auction” will take place May 17th and 18th at New York’s Hard Rock Café and online.

“Perla and Slash were the ultimate rock and roll couple,” Julien’s CEO Darren Julien, said in a statement. “The items in this collection not only personify the sensational love affair and life of this dramatic and glamorous couple but will add tremendous value and bragging rights to any serious rock fan’s collection of memorabilia owned by one of rock and roll’s greatest guitar gods, Slash.”

For sale: one used SPANKING BENCH! Ex-wife of Guns N' Roses rocker Slash auctions off bizarre items from their 14-year marriage, including his coffin-shaped guitar case

- Perla Hudson, 44, is selling off items from the couple's Beverly Hills mansion
- Comes after finally thrashing out three-year divorce battle since their 2014 split
- The items some of Slash's iconic hats will be sold in New York's Hard Rock Cafe in May


By Jack Elsom For Mailonline

The former wife of Guns N' Roses legend Slash is auctioning off a strange selection of the guitarist's old belongings, including a bronze and leather spanking bench.

Memorabilia and exotic person items collected during Slash and Perla Hudson's 14-year marriage, which was stashed in the couple's Beverly Hills mansion, will be sold next month after they finally thrashed out their three-year divorce battle.

Signed versions of the 53-year-old musician's iconic bowler and top hats will feature alongside his Jimi Hendrix emblazoned black leather jacket on New York's Hard Rock Cafe's auction table.

But some of the couple's more personal possessions are also available for bidding, including Perla's crystal-encrusted beaded and sequin bride's veil, their wedding cake topper and an erotic spanking bench.

Julien's Auction house announced yesterday that the belongings will be sold as part of the Music Icons auction on May 17 with a portion of the proceeds going to the Youth Emerging Stronger charity.  

Slash, whose real name is Saul Hudson, split from Perla in 2014 more than a decade after tying the knot in 2001.

Yet the pair only finalized their divorce in September last year because Perla had accused the Guns N' Roses' rocker's new girlfriend, Meegan Hodges, of harassing her and her two sons on Instagram.

In 2015, the Paradise City hitmaker joined the Los Angeles-based band on its Not In This Lifetime tour, thirty years after it formed in 1985.
