Yesterday, Jennie and Peter publicly announced their split, releasing a joint statement:
“While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time."
There was no official word on the cause of the split, but a source told Scallywag & Vagabond:
“Peter had been seeing another women for quite some time. They tried to make it work for the sake of their three children, and Jennie dutifully played housewife for as long as she could but finally had enough.”
Peter, who’s a Twilight star, reportedly met the other woman while in Vancouver shooting the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. The woman is a 20 year-old Canadian, but other than that, no details are known. I don’t think I’m going out on a limb by suggesting she’s a Twilight fan.
“Jennie knew,” the source said. “As a lot of couples do, they simply grew apart.”
Last summer, the couple reportedly split briefly. They were living in separate locations; while Peter was in Santa Ynez, Jennie was living in Toluca Lake.
At the time, a source shot down the rumors, saying that the two were renting out their Toluca Lake home to a third party and the whole family had been living in Santa Ynez.
