According to, DEF LEPPARD guitarist Vivian Campbell has filed for divorce from his wife Julie Campbell after 25 years of marriage.

Vivian filed documents in Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple married in February 1987 and have two young daughters, ages 13 and 11.

The guitarist is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the girls and he is asking the judge to deny spousal support to Julie.
