Rage Against The Machine and Prophets Of Rage drummer Brad Wilk has denied his estranged wife’s claim that their marriage ended in part because of an affair he had with actress Juliette Lewis.

The 50-year-old musician separated from his wife, Selene Vigil-Wilk, in 2013 after eight years of marriage. They have two children, 12-year-old Luka and 10-year-old Alexander. Wilk and Lewis began going public with their romance in 2016.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Wilk refuted Vigil-Wilk’s claim that his relationship with Lewis sank their efforts to reconcile. He said there was never a reconciliation and that he and Selene had been separated “for years” when he began dating Lewis.

Wilk also balked at his estranged wife’s demand for $48,000 a month in support, saying that he has already paid her over $4 million since they split. Bradley listed his average monthly income as $132,000 and noted he has $1,092,600 in bank accounts, $1.2 million in stocks/bonds and $3.4 million in other property.

The drummer went on to say that he is not earning as much money as he used to since Rage Against The Machine split in 2000 and that his main source of income is royalties. He noted, “I have no idea how much longer I will have a viable music career at this stage of my life.”
