TMZ broke news that James Hetfield and his wife of almost 25 years are splitting.
James and Francesca Hetfield met in 1992 and married in 1997. TMZ reports that James filed for divorce earlier this year in their home state of Colorado, but news only just broke this past weekend.
This was James’ first marriage, and they have three kids ranging in age from 16 to 20. Blabbermouth has some more insight into their background here. We send our best wishes to the Hetfield family!
