Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Why Did Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif Divorce?

Despite their bickering, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Adrienne Maloof and Dr. Paul Nassif always seemed like a one of reality TV’s more solid couples which is why it came as such a surprise when the pair announced they were splitting up. After that, things happened so fast that we could use a little review to get everything straight.

So when did Adrienne and Paul divorce?

Paul first filed for separation from Adrienne on July 30, 2012, after nine years of marriage. The two had been going through a very long rough period with a lot of bickering, and just could not work through it.

After the big announcement, rumors started circulating that the couple would reconcile after they’d recovered from the stress of filming the third season of RHoBH, but alas, it wasn’t to be.

Paul was again the one to make the move, and he officially filed for divorce from Adrienne on August 28, citing irreconcilable differences.

On November 8, Paul tweeted that the pair had reached a settlement, and details of the agreement soon made their way to the press. Paul and Adrienne agreed that they would each keep their assets from before they married, divide everything acquired during the marriage evenly, and apparently worked out "very close to 50/50 custody" regarding their three sons.

Though divorce is always a sad business, a source said that Paul and Adrienne were both happy after the settlement was reached. “They just want to move on with their lives," said the insider.

Adrienne, for her part, has moved on with the same speed that she and Paul wrapped up their divorce. She was first spotted with younger boyfriend Sean Stewart in January 2013, and the new couple seems to be going strong!
