Peter Facinelli, Jennie Garth on cheating rumors

When news broke earlier this week that Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli were ending their 11-year marriage, rumors began to spread that infidelity was at play.

The couple, whose split is expected to be covered in Garth's upcoming reality show, "Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country," said little more in their initial statement, other than the fact that they remain committed to raising their three children.

But gossip insinuated that "Twilight" star Facinelli had stepped out on Garth while filming the final installment of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" in Vancouver.

The now estranged partners say in a joint statement to CNN that the rumors are not only false, but painful.

"There are rumors out there which are completely untrue and hurtful to our family," the statement reads. "We just want to make it very clear – there are no third parties involved."

In the meantime, the two have said, they're focused on their three daughters.

“While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children," they said in an earlier statement. "We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time.”

    Men who have been committed to their wife and families don't leave their children unless there is someone to go to. Time to wake up Jenny.

    if he cheated...she had the guts to dump him..alot of women deal with cheaters because they "close the blinds" and pretend its not happening and also have no low self-esteem. If it was Jen Jen cheated..then good for him. I don't think he's gay.

    They both realized its just not working.

      Typical conservative idiocy, thinking it's better for the children to stay together and argue all the time than to just split up amicably. You think it's healthy for children to see their parents sticking in an unhappy relationship, being miserable, and fighting all the time? Even if you argue quietly in another room, they WILL know something's up. They're not stupid.

      Life's too short to stay in a miserable relationship. If you're not happy, move on and be happy before your life is over and you never get another chance.

    Yes he is gay, he just can't come out of the closet, can't anyone see how femme he is. He hangs with a lot of guys too, and love to dress up in womens clothes. he looks great as a women.
    he just used jennie, once he got her manager, it all went to his head. he's only a co, co, co, star, not a Brad Pitt.
    It will die out, and he will be back to a nothing and after another women to get ahead.
    feel for jennie, she is a real women who just wanted to step away from the limelight and be with her a real mom should.
    he needs to grow up, but that will never happen cause he can't even be his real self, only a user and abuser.
