It’s over! Former Playboy model Holly Madison filed for divorce from her husband Pasquale Rotella, Entertainment Tonight reports. The two have been married since 2013 and have two children together — daughter Rainbow Aurora, whom they welcomed in March 2013, and son Forest, whom they welcomed in August 2016.
While the two are looking to separate as a couple, they still plan on co-parenting their kids together, a source tells the outlet. The insider also says there was no huge reason for the split. The couple simply just grew apart over time.
Holly and Pasquale met in 2011 and got married on September 10, 2013, in Disneyland. The news of their divorce comes one year after her ex Hugh Hefner’s death. Pasquale confirmed the news on Instagram, writing, “It is with love in our hearts and a deep respect for one another that Holly and I have amicably made the decision to separate. First and foremost, we are forever partners and parents to two beautiful children, and are fully committed to raising them in an environment filled with love and positivity.”
He continued, “Holly is a talented woman and a beautiful soul. We remain the best of friends while co-parenting and continuing to support one another in our respective passions in life. Though it was not a decision we made hastily or take lightly, Holly and I welcome this next chapter in our relationship, and have every confidence that the future will bring only the best for us and our kids. We will always be family. Thank you all for your continued love and support.”
