“It is with great sadness that my marriage to Sam Poueu is ending,” Anderson told the mag.

More details have emerged in the case of As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis, who was arrested earlier this week in a murder-for-hire plot in which he allegedly sought someone to kill his estranged wife Meggan. The couple’s divorce papers offer some perspective on the situation and bring to light Meggan’s concerns over Tim’s recent behavior in relation to parenting their three adopted children from Ethiopia.
