RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE Drummer's Estranged Wife Claims His Affair With JULIETTE LEWIS Led To Divorce

According to The Blast, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE drummer's estranged wife is blaming his affair with actress Juliette Lewis for the failure of their reconciliation attempt.

Selene Vigil-Wilk originally filed for divorce in June 2013 but called it off later that year. The couple were married in 2005 and have two young children.

Selene, who used to sing for the all-girl punk act 7 YEAR BITCH, asked for joint legal custody of the children, but wanted primary physical custody and spousal support.

There was no activity in the case until recently, when Selene filed new documents in the case.

In her filing, Selene explains immediately after she filed for divorce, the two decided to reconcile and work on their marriage. This worked until she decided they could no longer be married in November 2017. She says since that time, Brad has been paying some of her bills, but she now wants a court order.

In her documents, Selene explains the original divorce was filed after she had learned Wilk had an affair with a woman from Las Vegas who worked at a strip club. He had told her the woman was pregnant, which caused her to file for divorce. She claims when they found out the woman lied about being pregnant, they were able to work things out.

She claims in early 2016, Brad went on tour with Juliette Lewis's band. She writes: "He left and they went on tour for several months with her and the band. I later discovered that he was having an affair with her … In late 2016, Brad returned to Los Angeles and informed me that he wanted to set up a mediation. He said that he was moving in with Juliette Lewis."

Selene says Brad earned $2.2 million in 2017 and believes he should pay $30,124 per month in temporary spousal support and $17,772 per month in temporary child support until the divorce is final. She is also seeking $100,000 in attorney fees and $50,000 for a forensic accountant.

In addition to being a founding member of RAGE, Wilk played in AUDIOSLAVE with two of his RAGE bandmates and most recently played with them in PROPHETS OF RAGE. He also handled the drums on BLACK SABBATH's 2013 reunion album in place of absent original drummer Bill Ward.
