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

According to Jennifer Murray, Bill's alcohol, marijuana and sex addictions were among the reasons she felt forced to move to a new home in 2006 with their four young children. The filing adds that Bill Murray once "hit his wife in the face and then told her she was 'lucky he didn't kill her.'"

A prenuptial agreement states that Bill would pay Jennifer Butler Murray $7 million in the event of a divorce, but she has asked a South Carolina court to determine whether the agreement is still valid.
