Dr. Paul Nassif has filed documents has filed documents to become legally separated from his wife, Adrienne Maloof. News broke last night that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pair have decided to separate after nine years of marriage and now, it's official.
According to TMZ, Nassif filed the documents in Los Angeles County Superior Court earlier this morning. Nassif, who moved out of the couple's home last week, wants joint legal and physical custody of the ex-couple's three children.
"The welfare of our children is my primary focus as Adrienne and I work through this difficult time. I want the best for her and our children and I hope that everyone can respect our privacy away from the cameras," Nassif said in a statement to TMZ. Unfortunately, much of their split has already played out for the cameras and, as in any Hollywood divorce, the press is sure to be reporting on everything they can get their hands on.
Luckily for the couple, filming on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is coming to an end next week. At least they won't have that added stress on their shoulders.
Adrienne Maloof and Dr. Paul Nassif will be seen on season 3 of RHOBH when it returns this fall on Bravo.
