After reportedly separating from her husband David Gebbia in 2015, it appears that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Carlton Gebbia is officially headed for divorce. The Blast reported that David filed documents in Los Angeles Superior Court on November 28, and that the couple's nearly 20-year marriage is likely to dissolve soon.
Though David and Carlton have been separated for some time, the couple still lived together in the Gothic-style Beverly Hills manse that Carlton decorated. The couple has three children together — Destiny, 15, Mysteri, 13, and Cross, 6 — and made the decision to continue living together in order to protect their kids' welfare.
At the time of the separation, Carlton said: "David and I both knew that if we decided to live in separate homes, which would end up in divorce, it would literally destroy and devastate our children. We've been together way too long, been the best of friends and business partners. We really have been amazing parents proudly raising the most beautiful and well-adjusted children. We were not prepared to screw it up now just because we fell out of love. We didn't want to split up the family dynamic. What we do know is, for our family, that it works right now. And it may not be for everyone, but for us it's positive and it's actually healing for us."
The London-born designer also had positive hopes for the future of her relationship with David. "This man was my soulmate for 20 years and never would I have imagined this. He was my everything, but we've been together a long time …[It] is wonderful now to know that we can still continue to be partners because we had always worked so well together in the past," Carlton said.
We wish the family well during this difficult time.
