Dr. Paul Nassif and Adrienne Maloof both filed for divorce earlier today in Los Angeles after separating last month. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple had previously stated that they were going to try and save their marriage, but now it seems as though they were unsuccessful.
Shortly after filing the documents, Paul spoke to TMZ. "Adrienne and I have tried very hard to make our marriage work, but this is the best course for both of us. This is a difficult time for our family, and my prime focus is to ensure our boys are well and happy."
The couple had been married for nine years and have three boys together. It's a shame to see them split. On their reality show, they seemed to be happy, and although they often bickered, it seemed to be in good fun.
Unfortunately for Paul, the heartbreak over his divorce is not the only pain he is currently dealing with. He recently got some devastating news.
Paul adds, "In addition, sadly I just lost my father yesterdayÂ—a man who taught me how to be a man. I deeply appreciate the outpouring of support from family, friends, and patients. We will get through this."
Dr. Paul Nassif has a hard road ahead of him, but if he stays focused on his children and his profession, he will be fine.
