Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth Divorce

Peter Facinelli (Carlisle Cullen) and his wife Jennie Garth are divorcing after 11 years of marriage.

“While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children,” the couple said in a statement. “We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time.”

Peter and Jennie are the parents of three daughters: 14-year-old Luca, 9-year-old Lola, and 5-year-old Fiona.

It’s sad that yet another Hollywood couple has now split :(

    Absolutely Horrible!!! Marriage is not sacred anymore! So sad for those girls! They should of faught for their marriage!!!

  • Kittypurr

    wonder what happen they look so happy together

  • ihatejane

    i hate to say it but i saw this coming. Have you seen him and Elizabeth together?  Jennie and him haven’t looked happy in a while. I feel bad for the girls. :(

  • LD

    you mean “should have fought?”  thought so.

  • Luludiamonds

    Not really surprising.  He got more successful than her…it  seems to happen like that in Hollywood.

  • Narmin Quliyeva

    Yeah, it is so sad. Becouse, they are very approach to each other. 

  • Ambray

    Apparently Peter had an affair with a 20-something Canadian while filming Breaking Dawn. What’s been reported, anyway.

  • La Voz del Silencio

    What a real shame, I admired them so much for continuing together after all the pressure they have to suffer as famous people they are. They were really one of my idols. So sad…

  • patriotgirl2012

    Shocked and saddened to hear this. They are a beautiful couple. Seems the more popular an actor becomes, the more stress on the marriage. I wish them luck.

  • Amber Eyes

    He apparently has a big rep for being a cheater. Who knew? 

  • hhartedward

    you just wonder if hollywood couples get so busy they don’t have time together or time to make a marriage work….. how could it be great if they are always on the road and busy with multiple projects.  it is very sad!    and if it is true that he cheated…….. awful!!

    This is one time I truly wish I was wrong, but, I told my daughter months ago this was going to happen. Having been through the same thing, I recognized the tell-tale signs in Peter’s interviews. He was consumed with being young like Rob, Jackson, Kellan, etc . . . and was insulted when anyone referred to him as being the older Cullen. He’d say, “I’m not that much older than they are.” Well guess what Peter, a 38 year old father of three, is a world away from the early 20′s that the rest of the youthful cast is. For anyone who’s suffered through divorce, whether it was you or your parents, it sucks! I feel for his children and especially for Jenny.  I think she’s incredibly funny and is totally under-rated as an actress. . . Hey, Luke Perry’s still single! Long live Dylan and Kelly the original 90210!

  • leahreallyitis

    I know it is pretty sad my (older) sister got married twice and divorced twice and it is sad that Peter and Jennie are splitting apart :/

  • leahreallyitis

    please don’t put it out there that he cheated because that is not true things happen in a relationship/ or marriage no one can be like(as an example) Paul Newman and his wife, Joanne Woodward who were(before he died) together for almost 60 years yeah almost 60 sometimes(again) shit happens and couples drift apart it is called being human and sometimes(and it is a rareity in Hollywood) you can find the perfect soulmate and spend a lifetime with this person and sometimes you don’t it happens it’s life

  • leahreallyitis

     and how do you know that is so typical that the number one first thing people would think or assume that the person cheated *rolls eyes* it is called life things happen in relationships that may OR may NOT have anything to do with cheating and IMO Peter would not do that and also IMO Peter seemed like a very happily married man(as well as Jennie) and VERY secure in his marriage sometimes again, things happen and maybe his career took the front the seat and his marriage took the back  seat and it happens to everyone famous or not….

  • leahreallyitis

    that is BULLSHIT whoever printed that crap has no life just sayin

  • Yankees817

    me too!!! i didnt even know they were having problems!

  • Luludiamonds

    Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward actually talked about how they BOTH cheated, but it was ok in the marriage, they made it work..

  • cm

    Paul Newman cheated with Joanne Woodward on his first wife. (They had 3 kids together.) He said he was “guilty as hell and would take it to the grave.” for cheating on his first wife. . . But he never cheated on Joanne Woodward. He always said, “Why go out for hamburger when you’ve got steak at home?” when asked about his longterm faithful relationship with Joanne.

  • K2☼__Ami♥BD2♀Csmpls♠

    Aw man! I heard this was coming but hoped it to be a rumor… My best to both of them. Xoxo

  • K2☼__Ami♥BD2♀Csmpls♠

    I didn’t anything about cheating, but Jennie mentioned how hard it was with him being away filming. I can imagine the difficulties, especially with her filming, too. 11years is hard to just walk away from. It’s very sad, but I hope life works out best for both of them and their girls. Xoxo

  • babyish14

    Being young, I saw the same things and when following him on Twitter he seemed not to talk or refer to her as much. Actually if you go back and watch the breaking dawn interviews , Peter and Elizabeth did together, he isn’t wearing his wedding ring as well.

  • super-human-teeth-baby!

    this is really really terrible :’(

  • DearJacob_I_Win_SincrlyEdwrd

    It’s very, very sad that this had to happen. I feel like it’s a really serious thing when you take your vows. And then the children come. At that point, it’s important to work out issues with your partner above and beyond. Of course there are special cases, like abuse (verbal/physical/emotional) but I really don’t think that’s what happened here. Especially with those children…marriage is hard work, and it’s important to just stick with it unless something really bad is going on, like I said, especially with kids. People will say, “oh but the love dies, the romance dies.” Well to me that’s not really an excuse. Marriage is more than passion, it’s friendship. It’s like we live in this world of fairy tale relationships, and it seems like that in the beginning, but that’s not the case…

  • LaTuaCantante83

    I completely agree with you. I think, in a lot of cases, it’s too easy in our society to just end a marriage. There ARE reasons to leave someone–abuse of any kind, unfaithfulness. But when there is suddenly no “magic,” I think that our culture just says, “Okay, time to move on!” It’s a selfishness that exists and is acceptable. I am married. I KNOW how hard it is. But being a partner–your vows–is a lifetime of hard work. 

    We don’t know what happened with them, and it’s not our business, but I wish more celebrities would stick it out. This makes me sad.

  • DearJacob_I_Win_SincrlyEdwrd

    I completely agree with you. I don’t know what happened with them, but I was speaking mostly about everyone else, just society in general.  I was just trying to say that I hope this wasn’t the case!

  • Super_spend

    This news was very confronting and upsetting for me. Everyone says ‘oh he and Elizabeth should get together, all he has to do is dump his wife’ i find that comment really sad :( its sad that a good thing has to come to end end. I never even knew they were having trouble with their marriage, At least he will be supporting their kids together no matter what

  • Ese Anne P Cullen

     I agree with you.. It´s sad.. :´(

  • LovesMeSomeEmmett

    I actually saw this coming…. it always seemed odd to me just how many Twilight events he was able to do. I always wondered how he had time to be a husband and father. I guarantee him being away at these events is what led to the split. It’s very sad, but I hope they will both be happy.

  • leahreallyitis

    yeah it is called “fame” unfortunately and his career(I said this yesterday) took the front seat and his marriage took a backseat sadly I just hope they will at least remain friends if anything :/

  • Twiheart

    I couldn’t have said it any better than you, DJIWSE.   I feel both of these people are fine, kind and compassionate, so doubt there was any mental or physical abuse or serial adultery…good reasons for divorce.  There is so much loss and pain to the children for just “irreconcilable differences”, but not knowing the whole story, I cannot pass judgement.   

    If there was passion and love at the beginning of a marriage, it can be restored with effort.    I’ve been married to my husband 47 years, and if we got a divorce everytime we felt it was headed that way, we’d ended it years ago and missed out on the great times in between, the evolution into a deeper, more mature love, and the knowledge that we will always have each other as we step into the less secure world of old age.

    I hope the world will give these two some privacy to work out their problems.  I’m hoping there is no other man or woman involved here, because going that route, when not driven to it by abuse, never leads to true happiness.       God bless and guide them.  I almost feel like my beloved Twilight family has been split.   Peter will always be the dear devoted Carlisle to me, eternally in love with Esme.

  • Franjeffries

    Hi,you are so right,such a sad thing to happen to such a lovley couple.:( i wish that somebody would have told my husband that,he left me+my son last April.

  • Franjeffries

    Im sure that i had heard something a few mths back about a trial separation&he hasn’t been tweeting that much latley either,so sad.:(

  • DearJacob_I_Win_SincrlyEdwrd

    I’m really sorry to hear that happened to you. He will get his, don’t worry 

  • DearJacob_I_Win_SincrlyEdwrd

    Yes, I agree. Well congratulations on 47 years of marriage! That is so great to hear. 
    I feel really bad about this too. The twilight family is so important to me, I feel a loss too. 

  • Amber Eyes

    And I’m assuming you know them personally since you are so sure you know them, and their marriage that well. 
    As much as I love the Twilight series and it’s actors, they are after all just people. They do make HUMAN mistakes and F up just like the rest of us. 
    Guess I shouldn’t say what else I’ve read, as it would get you REALLY twisted. Have a nice day!

  • Luludiamonds

    I agree totally, it takes work.  Also, the feelings cycle again and again.  When I’m in a downswing with my feelings toward my husband or if there isn’t any “passion” I usually tell myself, “Just wait, the cycle will swing back and you’ll in be love with him again.”  Not to say I don’t always love him, I do, but I don’t always have that “in love” feeling, especially after being together 14 years.  I’m sure he doesn’t either!

    I do have to say, when I first read Twilight and saw the movies I got pretty caught up in the idea of “passion” and the intensity of their relationship, so much so that I was comparing it to my own!  Which was insanity because it’s totally fantasy! I seriously was comparing my living husband to to fantasy character and THAT’S a problem, I’m sure I’m not the only one who has done this.

    So it is society pushing this romance idea, even our dear Stefanie Meyer…clearly this was HER fantasy, right?  It does affect people in the negative to be sure, I guess you just have to keep in mind that Twilight and other stuff like it is just not the norm :)

    But as for Peter and Jennie, it’s sad, it’s always sad when long term couple break up.

  • Ambray

    It was being reported on yahoo news if you want to check it out yourself.

  • Dlsing3253

    its sad to see two people who ovieulusly love each other for a long time, divorce. they should try to work things out, true love is hard to find, but harder to keep!

  • Dlsing3253

    i agree, no one said marriage was easy, but you just have to build on it and work hard together to make it last. the children always pay the price at the end. hopefuly they will see through this problem befor its to late.i will pray for understanding between them and wiss for the best! denise

  • mlj (Team Pea Coat)

    It is just GOSSIP. We may never know what happened and speculating about rumors is mean and childish. We are here to support the actors, not talk trash. Just sayin’!

  • EdwardsNana

    I had the pleasure of meeting Peter at the BD1 tent city in LA this year.  I felt a very deep admiration for him.  He went out of his way to accomidate his fans.  Including this senior.  He has become one of my favorites.  I am sorry for the break up of his marriage, but I know he loves his family and will do everything to calm the waters. 
    I only wish the meda would back off and let this unique little family work things out. 
    If anyone can keep it real I think Peter & Jenny can.  I pray for only the best for them.

  • life00

    Well, hi everyone. I’ve been viewing this site for a long while and finally today was able to get in.  I have no judgement against either one, nor am I really into his personal life.  I feel for the children, I am a child of divorced parents and I’m divorced myself.  I still enjoy him in Twilight.
