When Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth announced their split on Tuesday, it was revealed that he had an extramarital affair — but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned it was not his Twilight co-star, Tinsel Korey, as many suspected.
All fingers pointed to a Canadian woman who he’d been seeing for “quite some time” while filming the popular film saga in Vancouver.
The unidentified mystery woman was pegged to be in her late 20s, but that didn’t stop some from speculating it was 31-year-old Tinsel — who was born in Toronto, making her a Canadian.
“False,” Tinsel’s rep told us when asked if she’d had relations with Peter.
“They simply know each other from working on the Twilight saga.”
Peter was photographed the day he and Jennie announced their divorce in Los Angeles without his wedding ring on.
“While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children,” Peter and Jennie said in a statement.
“We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time.”
