Holly Madison's estranged husband Pasquale Rottela spoke out about their split only hours after word got out that the former Playboy playmate filed for divorce.
Word got out on Tuesday morning that Holly filed divorce papers weeks ago. The former couple married in September 2013 and share two children with each other: a son named Forest and a daughter named Rainbow.
Now he's speaking out about their split in a lengthy Instagram post that is captioned alongside a photo of the four of them together.
"It is with love in our hearts and a deep respect for one another that Holly and I have amicably made the decision to separate," he wrote. "First and foremost, we are forever partners and parents to two beautiful children, and are fully committed to raising them in an environment filled with love and positivity."
"Holly is a talented woman and a beautiful soul," Pasquale continued. "We remain the best of friends while co-parenting and continuing to support one another in our respective passions in life."
"Though it was not a decision we made hastily or take lightly, Holly and I welcome this next chapter in our relationship, and have every confidence that the future will bring only the best for us and our kids. We will always be family. Thank you all for your continued love and support."
