Though no official reason has been cited Facinelli told Us Weekly:
“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.”
Jennie and Peter have three daughters together, Luca is the oldest at 14 and nine year-old Lola and five year-old Fiona follow.
According to Scallywag & Vagabond, Facinelli had an affair with a Canadian woman that he met during the filming of Breaking Dawn.
The divorce shouldn’t come as such a surprise since they have not been photographed together since the Eclipse premiere but it still bums me out because they both seem like nice people and were together for 16 years! Mind boggling.
