Peter Facinelli Files Divorce Papers Cementing His Split From Jennie Garth

Peter Facinelli filed divorce papers Wednesday, making his split from Jennie Garth official and she in turn filed her response.

Facinelli citied “irreconcilable differences” as his reason for hiring a divorce attorney, and is asking for joint custody of their three children.

Just one day after they announced their spilt, rumors of infidelity began to circulate, accusations the couple said was “hurtful” and untrue.

Garth spoke to People magazine and admitted that divorce was not her idea. She said, “I was very resistant. I didn’t want it to happen. It took me some time to come to peace with it,” adding, “You get the rug pulled out from under you.” The couple has been married for 11 years.

Facinelli was busy filming Twilight in Vancouver and Nurse Jackie in New York, so his schedule kept him away from his wife and children, living in California. Jennie said, “He would do everything he could to fly back to every weekend. (But) it took a real toll on our marriage.”
