Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli are divorcing after nearly 11 years of marriage, proving thatÂ—even in HollywoodÂ—nothing is happily ever after. The news has been confirmed by both stars’ reps, and both of the stars are determined to split under amicable circumstances.
Garth is best known for her work on the TV series Beverly Hills, 90210, while Facinelli boasts Twilight fame as a member of the Cullen vampire family. The pair met, however, while filming the television movie An Unfinished Affair in 1996 and subsequently married in 2001. They share three lovely daughters.
Concerning the impending split, they jointly released the following statement to PEOPLE magazine: “While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time.”
Although their official statement has a certain poise, it is also incredibly vague as to the reason for their breakup. You also have to wonder just how amicable the divorce will be between the couple that reportedly began living separately last July. Jennie Garth has already unfollowed her future ex on Twitter, and Peter Facinelli isn’t avoiding the spotlight, evidenced by his attendance at The Hunger Games premiere last night.
