Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli say rumors of an affair are untrue and hurtful

Recently separated pair Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli are standing together on more than the care of their daughters. Both actors are speaking out about allegations of infidelity. 

Facinelli and Garth announced Tuesday that they mutually decided to end their 11-year marriage, with follow-up reports suggesting "Twilight Saga" star Facinelli was involved with another woman.

"There are rumors out there which are completely untrue and hurtful to our family," Garth and Facinelli said in a joint statement Wednesday. "We just want to make it very clear — there are no third parties involved."

The defunct couple previously expressed that they remain friends and will work together in raising their girls. Facinelli is a star of Showtime's "Nurse Jackie," and will release "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2" in November.

Garth, a fan favorite as Kelly Taylor on Aaron Spelling's original "90210," is currently involved in a children's literacy campaign.
