Guitar Hero's Wife Files For Divorce

By Samantha Abernethy in News on Mar 20, 2009 9:45PM

The wife of Gary Skoien, former Cook County GOP Chairman, filed for divorce Thursday and lost a request to block him from taking their three children out-of-state on vacation. Less than two weeks ago, Skoien called the cops to his house and claimed his wife Eni beat him with a plastic guitar. Police say that Skoien told him that he was with two prostitutes when his wife found him. He later disputed that, but the police wouldn't let him change the police report. He told WLS-AM last week, "If they were prostitutes, I would've lied. I would never tell the police there were prostitutes in my house."
