Pasquale Rotella may be the shining light behind all of Insomniac’s best events around the world, but not all that glitters is gold. Today, Rotella announced via social media that he and his wife of nearly five years, former The Girls Next Door actress Holly Madison, were separating.


“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,” writes Rotella. “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.”

Rotella and Madison have two children together, Rainbow Aurora and Forest Leonardo, five and two years old respectively.

The divorce was initially filed by Madison on August 31 in Las Vegas; Rotella says “it was not a decision we made hastily or take lightly.” The two will continue to co-parent their two children as they “welcome this next chapter in our relationship, and have every confidence that the future will bring only the best for us and our kids.”
