Barry Bonds' wife files for divorce in LA

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Court records show Barry Bonds' wife of 12 years has filed for divorce in Los Angeles.

Liz Watson filed to end the couple's marriage on Thursday. She cited irreconcilable differences, and documents state the couple have already reached a settlement agreement.

Details of the agreement were not included in the initial filing. Attempts to locate Bonds' attorney Friday were unsuccessful.

Watson withdrew a separation petition that was filed in June.

She is seeking joint custody of the couple's 11-year-old daughter.

The former San Francisco Giants' slugger and Liz Watson were married in 1998.

Bonds' first marriage to Susann Margreth Branco ended in a highly publicized divorce in 1994.
