Barry Bonds’ Wife Files For Separation

2009-06-09 - Barry Bonds and wifeBarry Bonds' wife has filed for legal separation, making it the second time the MLB slugger has struck out with a spouse.

The former San Francisco Giants' slugger and Liz Watson were married in 1998 and have a 10-year-old daughter, Aisha.

Watson's lawyer filed papers on Monday (June 8) in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. She is seeking spousal support and joint legal and physical custody of their child.

The couple got together shortly after Bonds' nasty divorce to his first wife Susann (Sun) Branco in 1994.

According to the New York Daily News, it took six years for California courts to rule in Bonds' favor over a prenuptial agreement that denied Branco a share of her ex's fortune. Branco, a Swedish immigrant, argued she did not understand the contract, signed a day before their 1988 wedding.

At press time, it's unclear whether Bonds and Watson had their own prenup.
