Paul Nassif officially files for divorce from Adrienne Maloof

Adrienne Maloof Paul Nassif to file for separation

In a previous report it looked like Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof and husband Paul Nassif were on the outs. Adrienne has addressed the news circulating around her marriage and is sadly confirming that she and Paul are indeed headed for divorce.

She told Radar:

“I’m so sorry that this is happening but my children are my life and sometimes we need to do what’s best for them.”

The couple have been married for nine years and Adrienne highlighted the importance of her three young sons in the decision:

“It’s an unfortunate situation but I have to have my kids best interest at heart.”

Coming in right after Adrienne’s comments is the news that Paul has officially filed for separation this morning. According to court documents the couple do have a pre-nup. Nassif’s official statement mirrors those of Maloof’s:

“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.”

This story is moving fast! In addition it looks like Nassif has moved out of the couple’s mansion.
