Fualaau confirmed the news to Radar, and Washington State court records filed on May 9 show that he asked a judge for a legal separation on that date.
But Fualaau told Radar that the filing does not mean the marriage is over.
“It’s not necessarily what you think,” Fualaau, 33, claimed. “Everything is fine between us.”
“All the rumors that you hear between us. It’s fine,” he said. “Of course we are still in love. A piece of paper doesn’t break someone’s feelings!”
According to Fualaau, he’s made the move to protect his business interests.
After working as a DJ – DJ Headline – for years, Fualaau is now looking to get licensed as a distributor for “Cigaweed” marijuana cigarettes, he said.
“When you want to get licensend, they do background checks on both parties,” Fualaau explained. “If I decide to be a part of it I have to be licensed and I have to be vetted and so does a spouse. She has a past. She has a history.”
Indeed, Letournea, now 55, served more than seven years in prison for having sex with Fualaau when he was her sixth grade student back in 1996.
They married in 2005, and have two children. Letourneau has four kids from a previous marriage.
