Alexis and Jim Bellino Comment on Their Divorce and Why They Decided to Split


USmagazine.com:
Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino and her husband, Jim Bellino, have broken their silence regarding their split one week after Jim filed for divorce.

“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,” the two said in a joint statement to Us Weekly on Thursday, June 28. “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.”

“In recent days and weeks, there has been a lot of negative discussion about our marriage and why it is ending,” their statement continued. “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.”

Us Weekly confirmed on June 21 that Jim had filed for divorce from his wife of 13 years. He cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and is asking for spousal support from Alexis, who starred on RHOC for three season from 2009 to 2013. They share three children: 12-year-old old son James and 10-year-old twin daughters Melania and Mackenna.
