The details


Perla (Ferrar) Hudson (born 14 Match 1975) is the former wife of British-American guitarist for Guns N' Roses, Slash.

Early life

Perla was born Perla Teresa Ferrar on 14 Match 1975 in California to Cuban immigrants. She has two brothers: Boris Juan Antonio and Ivan Angel Pablo. Ivan disappeared in 2001 and the family found out in 2006 that he was murdered.

Perla grew up in Los Angeles and Miami and attended a boarding school in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Her first job after education was modeling and acting. 


Perla met Slash in the early 1990s at a Guns N' Roses concert after-party at Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. They had met during the time when Slash was casually dating his future-first-wife, American model and actress, Renée Suran. In a Telegraph interview, Slash said of Perla:

We had our little fling for a second...I knew that I was seriously attracted to her. And I didn't need that in my life, so we stayed apart.

Perla and Slash remained friends in the years to come. On the other hand, Slash's marriage with Renée Suran fell apart and they ended their 5-year-long marriage in a divorce in 1997. 

After his divorce, Slash began dating Perla, eventually marrying her on October 15, 2001, in Hawaii. They reportedly married with no prenuptial agreement. Slash's real name is Saul Hudson, and Perla assumed his last name after the marriage. The couple had two sons: London Emilio Hudson (born August 28, 2002) and Cash Anthony Hudson (born June 23, 2004.) 

In 2001, Slash was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy that was caused by his many years of alcohol and drug abuse, with doctors telling him that he has anywhere between six days and six weeks to live. However, he was able to survive through physical therapy and the implantation of a defibrillator, and with the support from his family. In a March 2009 interview with People.com, Slash gave credit to his family, saying that settling down with Perla and his two sons meant "getting rid of all the real hardcore stuff that I used to live on."


The relationship between Slash and Perla grew sour and Slash filed for divorce from Perla in August 2010. The couple reconciled two months later and Slash withdrew his petition. However, citing irreconcilable differences, Slash filed for divorce from Perla again in December 2014. The case went on for 4 years and was legally finalized in September 2018. 

Perla got the primary physical custody of both children per the divorce settlement, which states that Slash will pay Perla $6.6 million as well as $100,000 per month in spousal support and $39,000 per month in child support. Slash will keep his guitars and any musical compositions he owns, with future proceeds belonging to Slash, and Perla will get their Los Angeles house, a 2014 Range Rover and 2 Mercedes. In addition, each child will get .09% of Slash's income for the next 20 years.

Divorce party

The divorce was bitter and Perla celebrated the separation by throwing a "divorce party" at her Los Angeles home. For the party, she had a cake made that showed Perla standing on top of cake, blowing a kiss with Slash getting crushed under. The message on the cake says, "Happy New Beginnings Perla."

In June 2014, she created her eponymous YouTube channel, Perla Hudson, where she vlogs and posts lifestyle tips.

  • London Hudson is a drummer for a Los Angeles-based rock band, "Classless Act".
