Actor Peter Facinelli and wife Jennie Garth have split after 11 years.
The “Twilight” actor and former “90210” actress married in 2001.
Jennie and Peter issued a statement about their split, saying, “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.”
Facinelli and Garth have three daughters: Luca, 14, Lola, nine, and five-year-old Fiona.
There have been rumors of a split for years, but Jennie previously said divorce wasn’t an option.
In November 2008, Garth stated, “In this industry, there’s always going to be someone more beautiful out there,” she explained. “It’s easy to be tempted. I’m not interested in taking the easy way out. Divorce is not an option for us. I want to be with my family.”
This will be the second divorce for Garth, who split from Daniel Clark in 1996.
