Peter Facinelli - Facinelli Breaks Silence After 'Very Painful' Marriage Split

Twilight star Peter Facinelli opened up about his "very painful" split from wife Jennie Garth during a TV hosting appearance on Wednesday (04Apr12).
The actor has kept quiet since he and Garth confirmed plans to end their 11-year marriage last month (Mar12), but he finally addressed their broken relationship while co-hosting U.S. talk show Live! with Kelly.
Facinelli, who was not wearing his wedding band, became emotional as he told presenter Kelly Ripa why he has refrained from talking too much about the divorce.
He explained, "I recently got divorced from my wife, which has been very painful. Especially after you've been together for 17 years and have kids - I've tried to stay quiet about it for the sake of my kids."
He later added, "We're doing well, she'll always be in my life, I'll always love her... We're very dedicated to being great parents."
Facinelli and Garth have three kids - Luca, 14, Lola, nine, and five-year-old Fiona.
