STP singer Weiland files for divorce

LOS ANGELES -- Stone Temple Pilots lead singer Scott Weiland has filed for divorce from his wife.

The 35-year-old singer said in court documents filed Tuesday that he's divorcing Mary Weiland, with whom he has two children, because of irreconcilable differences. The couple has a prenuptial agreement.

The two married in May 2000 and separated in September 2002. Mary Weiland filed for divorce after their separation, but dropped the matter in August.

Scott Weiland was sentenced to three years' probation in August after pleading no contest to one count of possessing heroin; on Monday, he's scheduled to return to court for a progress report. He had a prior drug arrest and was jailed in 1999 after he violated probation and didn't complete drug rehabilitation programs.

In 2001, Weiland pleaded guilty to domestic battery after a fight with his wife at the Hard Rock hotel and casino in Las Vegas. The judge agreed to dismiss the charges as long as Weiland underwent counseling.
