Paul Nassif and Adrienne Maloof

After initial reports claiming that Paul Nassif was planning on fililng for divorce from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof, the 'Wife took the offensive and confirmed the split.

Speaking with RadarOnline, Adrienne said she is "so sorry that this is happening but my children are my life and sometimes we need to do what's best for them," Adrienne said, hinting that their separation is taking place in large part for their kids.

Maloof and Nassif have been married for nine years, and they have three sons together -- twins Christian and Colin as well as Gavin.

Adrienne went on to call things "an unfortunate situation," but that having her "kids best interest at heart" right now is her main priority.
