At the end of last month we learned that Adrienne Maloof, one of the stars of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and her husband of about 10 years Paul Nassif were breaking up. It was reported that the couple were looking for ways to reconcile in the midst of their split but clearly attempts to patch things up have not been successful. Adrienne filed for divorce from Paul today and shortly thereafter, he filed his own divorce papers against her. It does not sound like this split is going to be very amicable :(
“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Adrienne Maloof has filed for divorce from her husband Dr. Paul Nassif … but Paul has just filed his own divorce petition … TMZ has learned. TMZ broke the story … Dr. Paul originally filed for legal separation back in July, but it was Adrienne that pulled the final trigger this morning … filing docs in L.A. court today citing irreconcilable differences. Paul’s divorce petition also cites irreconcilable differences. As TMZ previously reported … Dr. Paul made it clear in the separation docs there is a prenup in place. He also stated he wants joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s children. Paul’s divorce petition reaffirms that he wants joint custody and acknowledges the prenup. Fact is … they both have their own money. The couple married in 2002, they have three boys together.
Now, I’m not sure how seriously the couple worked toward their reported reconciliation but it doesn’t sound like they put too much effort into it. Altho the reason for the divorce is cited as “irreconcilable differences”, we may never know for sure what the cause of the break-up is. It’s possible that Adrienne will share more information about this split when the new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns next season but until then, it’s speculation central. In the end, it sounds like this break-up is the best for both of them. They never really looked all that happy on their reality TV show. She was always angry with him for pretty much every reason possible and he just looked like he endured it all with a smile (at least on camera). Next stop for these two, divorce court. Here’s hoping things work out for the best for everyone involved.
