Twilight star Peter Facinelli completes friendly divorce from Jennie Garth

Jennie Garth and Peter FacinelliTwilight star Peter Facinelli has completed his divorce from Jennie Garth.

The 39 year-old performer separated from actress Garth in 2012  after 11 years together. They have three daughters – Luca Bella, now 15; Lola Ray, ten; and Fiona Eve, who is six.

The couple have reached an amicable divorce settlement, TMZ reports. Both partners have declined spousal support (maintenance) payments and have instead agreed to jointly fund a bank account set up to help pay for their children’s education, school expenses and care. Both will pay equal amounts into the account and both will have full access, the site claims.

The pair have agreed on 50-50 parenting arrangements and insisted that they don’t need a formal custody agreement. According to TMZ, this is “unheard of in Hollywood”.

Peter Facinelli had a recurring role as Carlisle Cullen in the Twilight Saga film series. He currently appears in popular sitcom Nurse Jackie.

His former wife appeared as Kelly Taylor in successful teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210 as well as several related shows.
