Jennie Garth & Peter Facinelli

Divorce Final

Nicest Divorce Ever

EXCLUSIVE

Former "90210" star Jennie Garth is officially a single woman ... because her divorce from "Twilight" actor Peter Facinelli has been finalized -- and it's quite possibly the most amicable and novel divorce of all time.

As we reported, Garth and Facinelli pulled the plug on their marriage in 2012 after 11 years together. They have three daughters -- 15-year-old Luca Bella, 10-year-old Lola Ray, and 6-year-old Fiona Eve.

The divorce order was officially signed Tuesday -- but the real story ... Garth and Facinelli still totally trust each other -- especially in the money department.

The two have each declined spousal support.  As for the children, they're doing something pretty novel.  Jennie and Peter are funding a joint bank account for the care and education of their children.  Both parents will deposit money in equal amounts.  Each has full access to the accounts. 

They have also agreed to share 50/50 custody of their daughters and insist they don't need a formal custody arrangement -- unheard of in Hollywood.

Jenny said that the divorce came out of nowhere! She didn't know Peter even wanted a divorce.she said she had no idea he was so u happy in their marriage! I think he is an ass/hole for Just springing it on her like that! Sorry for her! He sucks!

Very nice of them. This is how all people should get divorced and not used the children like ammo to hurt the other parent.

Now that his Twilight fame has fizzled out to nothing, he's probably regretting that he ended a good thing in favour of bangin some crazy Twilight fans. What a waste.

Awesome! I've always been a fan of those two, was sad to hear they split. These are two people who genuinely have their kids best interest at heart. This is how it should always be but greed gets in the way and most of the time, the kids have to suffer. Kudos Jenny and Peter, I'm even a bigger fan now.

The only reason it's gone so smoothly is because of Jennie being the person she is. He cheated on her with another actress from some movie he made while doing Twilight movies and Nurse Betty while Jennie raised their 3 daughters back home allowing him to following his acting dreams. She has said on many occasions she wanted their marriage to work and wanted to go to counseling and for him to be happy. She was obviously still very much in love with him and wants to do whats best for her daughters. He's getting off pretty easily and that's because of the wonderful person Jennie is. He's garbage!

I like the way Garth comes across. I know she said she didn't want the divorce & she didn't seem to think their problems were that bad, but at least she finally accepted it. Much better to step away from an unhappy situation than to raise your kids in that environment. If you really want more for them when they're adults , much better to let them know that unhappiness is not part of a healthy marriage. They will take better care of themselves & have their parents honesty to thank for it.

Why not stay together then. Sure she's 2 years older than he is but she's also super pretty so why not make it work..
