The wife of entertainer Bill Murray wants a divorce after nearly 11 years of marriage.

Jennifer Butler Murray filed papers May 12th in Charleston County, South Carolina, where she owns a home.

The complaint was first reported by The Post and Courier of Charleston. It alleges abusive behavior, drug and alcohol addiction, and frequent abandonment by the former "Saturday Night Live" star.

An attorney for Murray says the actor is deeply saddened by the breakup and is committed to the best interests of the couple's four children.
