Bill Murray’s wife can’t handle his virile, pot-smoking, all-around awesomeness

Wouldn’t you know it: As soon as I leave Charleston, South Carolina — where I’ve been vacationing for the past week — one of the biggest celebrity stories in recent months breaks the next day. What’s more, it’s about part-time Sneden’s Landing resident Bill Murray.

0000018648_20060921095219.jpgAccording to the Post & Courier, his wife, Jennifer Butler Murray, has asked for a divorce in Charleston court on the grounds that her husband smokes pot and has an overactive libido. Um, so what exactly is the problem?

Actually, there were a few more complaints: “adultery, addiction to marijuana and alcohol, abusive behavior, physical abuse, sexual addictions and frequent abandonment.” All those were cited in the complaint Mrs. Murray, the actor’s second wife, filed on May 12. The couple has four sons, all under the age of 18.

The crack team at the Post & Courier also managed to track down the couple’s 23-page prenup, which states that Bill will pay Jennifer $7 mil if the marriage is dissolved. Though it’s not entirely clear how the family’s assets will be divided, since Jennifer moved to the couple’s $3.65 Sullivan’s Island home back in 2006, it’s probably safe to assume that she’ll stay there and Bill will keep the Rockland County home — and dibs on all Peter Kelly restaurants.
