The 56-year-old Andrew Dice Clay filed for divorce from his 31-year-old wife in March after more than four years of marriage; since Valentine’s Day in 2010 in Las Vegas. He said of it to TMZ in a statement “The word ‘marriage’ was putting a pressure on our relationship and since we filed, we’ve been more in love and have had more respect for each other than ever before.” TMZ notes that in proper style, they had a divorce party at Craig’s, a restaurant in West Hollywood.

While marriage did not agree with them it’s clear that them staying together does! As Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have made headlines for their “conscious uncoupling” we see another couple consciously uncoupling, but only in the legal sense. It’s an unusual story, yes, but at least the couple has found a resolution to their dilemma.

The marriage was the third for the iconic comedian who rose to fame in the 1980s blazing a never-ending trail of controversies ever since. He was most recently seen in Woody Allen’s movie ‘Blue Jasmine.’

And with this recent filing, he’s now a three-time divorced man. His first and second wives respectively, wer Kathy Swanson and Kathleen Monica; the later is the mother of his two sons.

Divorced again, Andrew Dice Clay continues to Tweet about the woman who is no longer his wife “my chick.” True to his signature style, the Tweets are exuberantly profane and too explicit to quote here. But suffice it to say they indicate that he is quite satisfied, particularly in the bedroom.

As for the details of the Valerie Vasquez biography, by profession, the curvaceous brunette — easily mistaken for an actress or a model — is a makeup artist and had been a private citizen. That is, until she married the larger than life comedian and goodbye obscurity! She changed her name to Valerie Silverstein during her marriage, it is Andrew Dice Clay’s real surname.
