Former "Brady Bunch" star Christopher Knight insists his split from wife Adrianne Curry is definitely not one of those nasty break-ups ... saying, "I love her dearly."

Knight was doing a photoshoot near L.A. earlier today when he explained, "We just need some perspective ... that's all it is."

Over the weekend, the two released a joint statement saying they're taking some time apart to rethink their future.
