The reality television show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills focuses on the drama in the lives of several California couples. The drama may continue as one of the primary couples of the reality television show, Adrienne Maloof and her husband Paul Nassif, have filed for divorce. The couple has been known to bicker on the reality television show, but it seems like the bickering as husband and wife may come to an end.
The estranged couple, who recently announced their separation, has officially filed divorce documents in a California court. In fact, both Paul Nassif and Adrienne Maloof have filed their own divorce documents. Paul Nassif initially filed divorce documents and it has been reported that just recently, within the same week, Adrienne Maloof also filed divorce documents.
It has been reported that Adrienne Maloof’s family may have urged her to file her own divorce documents. The reported family members that may have urged her divorce filing are her brothers, who may have been concerned about Adrienne Maloof’s fortune. It was reported Adrienne Maloof’s brothers were concerned her estranged husband had personal motives with the intent to obtain some of Adrienne Maloof’s reported $300 million fortune.
The couple does have a prenuptial agreement that likely will provide terms for financial disbursements in the event of a divorce. In addition to the potentially contentious issue of finances and assets, the couple also has three minor children. As part of the divorce, the couple will need to reach an agreement regarding both child custody and potential child support.
