Former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star Jennie Garth may be splitting from her husband, “Twilight” patriarch Peter Facinelli. Garth and Facinelli have been married since 2001. It’s her second marriage — she was briefly hitched to Daniel B. Clark between 1994 and 1996.
The site Scallywag & Vagabond reports that Garth and Facinelli are divorcing. We doubted it, since it’s certainly not the first time these rumors have swirled, but when we saw that Garth is no longer following Facinelli on Twitter, we couldn’t deny it any more.
It’s surprising, simply given the fact that the couple has been open about the work that goes into their relationship. In November 2008, Garth even said that they’d never consider divorce. “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.”
Garth and Facinelli have three daughters — 14-year-old Luca Bella, 9-year-old Lola Ray, and 5-year-old Fiona Eve. Garth’s reality show, “Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country,” premieres on CMT on April 20th at 9:30 p.m. EST. It’ll chronicle her move from Los Angeles to a large farm in central California, where she hopes they’ll experience a simpler life.
