Sources for TMZ said that the two have tried to work out their issues, but have not been able to do so.
An insider told Radar Online that there are a “variety of reasons” that led to their decision to separate. “Adrienne was dragged through the dirt during filming of the upcoming season, and it really wore on her,” the insider said. “Paul and Adrienne have always fought, it’s how they were as a couple. However, at this point, they realize that they just want very different things, and neither one of them is happy in the marriage.”
Another told the site, “Neither one is ready to pull the plug and file for divorce, they are trying to figure out the best way to deal with this.”
Maloof herself later told Radar Online, “I’m so sorry that this is happening but my children are my life and sometimes we need to do what’s best for them.” People reports that the couple were married in 2002 and have three children, Gavin, Colin and Christian.
