Heavy metal band Metallica has been enjoying a sort of resurgence as of late. This is partly due to their music being referenced on Stranger Things. However, it seems that not everything is running smoothly for the members of the band.

Metallica’s frontman, James Hetfield, has made headlines for a completely unrelated reason. It seems that after 25 years of being married to his wife, Hetfield has now filed for divorce.

TMZ reports that sources close to Heltfield, and his wife Francesca Hetfield, revealed that the Metallica frontman filed for divorce earlier this year in Colorado. It seems that the couple wanted to keep the divorce from public knowledge.

James and Francesca met in 1992, and were married five years later, in 1997. Together, the couple have two daughters and a son. Despite the divorce, it seems that things are amicable between the two, and they are keeping in touch.

Having been together for 25 years, it’s not surprising that the couple have overcome a lot together. Francesca reportedly helped James with his anger management issues, and even joined the band on tours at times. Since the two remain friends, here’s hoping that they will continue to grow together despite the divorce.
