Pasquale Rotella and Holly Madison File for Divorce

The President and First Lady of Insomniac are splitting up. 2018 was supposed to be the year of milestones for Pasquale Rotella and his Insomniac Events team, as they celebrated their 25th anniversary.

Holly Madison and Pasquale Rotella are going their separate ways almost five years after their fairytale wedding. The couple began dating in 2011, welcoming their daughter, Rainbow Aurora, in March 2013. The couple tied the knot in October 2013, in an extravagant Disneyland ceremony, and welcomed a second child, Forest Leonardo Antonio, in August 2016.

Madison, 38, met Rotella, 44, after leaving the Playboy Mansion in 2008, when she moved to Las Vegas to pursue a career as a burlesque dancer. According to court records, Rotella filed for divorce on August 31st in Las Vegas. The record also shows that Madison was served with papers on September 19th, and that both parties were ordered not to transfer any property or money around during the divorce proceedings.

In an Instagram post this morning, Rotella addressed the split, stating that the two of them will remain the best of friends while co-parenting and continuing to support one another in their respective passions in life. We wish both Madison, Rotella, and their two beautiful children the best during this difficult time

It is with love in our hearts and a deep respect for one another that Holly and I have amicably made the decision to separate. First and foremost, we are forever partners and parents to two beautiful children, and are fully committed to raising them in an environment filled with love and positivity. Holly is a talented woman and a beautiful soul. We remain the best of friends while co-parenting and continuing to support one another in our respective passions in life. Though it was not a decision we made hastily or take lightly, Holly and I welcome this next chapter in our relationship, and have every confidence that the future will bring only the best for us and our kids. Thank you all for your continued love and support. ❤️
