'Twilight' star Peter Facinelli denies cheating rumours

Thursday March 15, 2012

Twilight star Peter Facinelli and his actress wife Jennie Garth have denied rumours that their marriage has ended because of infidelity.

The couple released a statement to People countering the speculation a day after announcing their split.

"There are rumours out there which are completely untrue and hurtful to our family," they said.

"We just want to make it very clear - there are no third parties involved."

The actor, who plays Carlisle Cullen in the vampire movies, and the former Beverly Hills 90210 star have three daughters together aged from five to 14 and have been married for 11 years.

"While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together," they previously told People.

"We ask for privacy and respect during this time."

Peter and Jennie met when they worked together in 1996 and they went on to tie the knot in 2001.
