CHARLESTON, S.C. – Actor Bill Murray is a violent pot and alcohol addict who trolls for sex partners overseas, his wife claims in divorce papers.
In her petition filed in Charleston, S.C., Jennifer Butler-Murray suggests that she moved their family to South Carolina to try to cure Murray's cravings for pot, booze and sex — to no avail, the New York Post reports.
"In 2006, the plaintiff moved to Sullivan's Island ... due to defendant's adultery, addiction to marijuana and alcohol, abusive behavior, physical abuse, sexual addiction [and] frequent abandonment," reads a complaint written by Butler-Murray's lawyer, Robert Rosen.
But even after the move, the "Lost in Translation" actor, 57, often vanished for days seeking sex and drugs, his soon-to-be ex-wife said.
"Defendant would often leave the state or country without telling the plaintiff," the petition reads. "Defendant travels overseas, where he engages in public and private altercations and sexual liaisons."
Murray and Butler-Murray married July 4, 1997, and they have four children — Caleb James, 15, Jackson William, 12, Cooper Jones, 11, and Lincoln Darius, 7. Butler-Murray, 42, wants sole custody of the children.
