Breaking the silence! Last week, Jim Bellino filed for divorce against his wife Alexis Bellino and now the Real Housewives of Orange County stars have spoken out about their ended relationship, revealing the reason for their split.
In a joint statement to media on Thursday, June 28, the duo said that they ended their marriage with a mutual decision and revealed that they have agreed on 50/50 custody of the children.
The statement reads,
It is with heavy hearts that we inform the public of our mutual decision to end our marriage — but it’s important to us that you know we made this choice together, with love, and as the best decision for our children’s future. We hold one another in the highest regards as spouses, and especially as parents. We have agreed on 50/50 custody of the children, and we ask that you respect our privacy by not theorizing about the reasons for our divorce.
The statement continues,
In recent days and weeks, there has been a lot of negative discussion about our marriage and why it is ending. Outside of the news of our decision to part ways, there is nothing provocative, alluring, or sordid about the dissolution of our marriage. Quite to the contrary, we strongly support each other just as we have since the beginning of our relationship.
On June 21, multiple sources confirmed that Jim's divorce filing from his wife after 13 years of marriage. He cited the reason for the split as "irreconcilable differences".
The duo shares three children together: son James, 12, and twin daughters Melania and Mackenna, 10.
Jim has listed “TBD” as his and his estranged wife's date of separation and as per the report, he is seeking for the joint legal and physical custody of his kids. In addition, Jim is asking for spousal support from Alexis, whom he married in 2005.
As previously reported, just days after the divorce filing, Alexis headed to Montana with her kids for a family trip.
She shared some photos from the vacation in which the mother and the kids were seen enjoying the getaway despite the split.
