    Default David Tutera, My Fair Wedding Host, Divorcing Husband

    David Tutera, My Fair Wedding Host, Divorcing Husband

    While My Fair Wedding host David Tutera may share in the commitment joy of many couples as a celebrity wedding planner on his WE tv show, his own 10-year marriage is currently unraveling in court.

    Tutera, who wed longtime partner Ryan Jurica in September 2003 in Vermont, where same-sex marriage is legal, is seeking to end his domestic partnership in California, where the couple live. (Same-sex marriage is not legally recognized in California.)

    The couple separated on New Year's Day 2013, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court documents filed by Tutera on April 19 and obtained by PEOPLE. The filing, which cites "irreconcilable differences," also states that the two men are expecting the birth of twins via a surrogate in July.

    Tutera is seeking full legal and physical custody of the twins, with visitation for Jurica. He also does not wish to pay spousal support and asks that Jurica be responsible for all legal fees related to their split and the division of property.

    When contacted by PEOPLE, Tutera's rep offered no comment.

    TMZ was the first to report the story.

    Twins on the way?? Fuck, this shit's gonna get messy.

    BTW Bluebonnet, is that "grumpy cat?" I'm not a huge fan of the feline variety (I prefer four-legged friends that bark and fetch stick's) but that cat is hysterical!

    Love it. Grumpy Cat looks like he needs a royal flush in his paws and a cigar hanging out of his mouth.

    Well, apparently, the wedding planner is addicted to sex and hires prostitutes.


    As the host of WE TV's "My Fair Wedding," David Tutera has given countless couples the fairy-tale weddings of their dreams. But his own happily-ever-after is quickly becoming a nightmare. Earlier this month, the celebrity wedding planner filed to end his decade-long domestic partnership with husband Ryan Jurica, TMZ reports.
    According to legal documents filed in Los Angeles and obtained by the site, Tutera is seeking to end the relationship because of "irreconcilable differences." But other documents filed by Jurica two days earlier in Connecticut allege that Tutera's libido is to blame for the split.

    "After repeated attempts at marriage counseling and therapy, we have been unable to save our relationship due to [David's] addiction to sex," TMZ quotes the papers as saying. "[David] has engaged in a pattern of hiring sex escorts and prostitutes to support his addiction."
    Complicating matters further is the fact that the couple are expecting twins via surrogate in July. Per TMZ, both men have requested full custody of the babies-to-be. Jurica is also reportedly asking for spousal support -- which Tutera doesn't want to pay -- and says in his papers that the breakup, initiated by Tutera, sent him into a downward spiral. As a result, he alleges, he had to check himself into rehab.
    Tutera and Jurica tied the knot in September 2003 in Vermont, where same-sex marriage is legal. Upon returning to their home in California, where same-sex marriage is not recognized, they filed for domestic partnership.

    ^looks like somebody's going in guns blazing to get the twins to be.

    David Tutera Responds to Husband's Claims of Sexual Addiction

    As a move to end the 10-year domestic partnership of My Fair Wedding host David Tutera and Ryan Jurica heads to the courts, Tutera has issued a statement to PEOPLE responding to allegations culled from Jurica's legal papers, accusing the WE tv celebrity wedding planner of a sexual addiction and the hiring of prostitutes.

    "The allegations against me are baseless and untrue and I will fight vigorously to defend my reputation in the court of law as well as the court of public opinion," says Tutera. "I believe them to be fabrications of a desperate individual in order to gain a legal advantage in our separation."

    He goes on the say: "I am saddened by these developments; I am angered by the lies; and I am committed to moving beyond this painful moment to focus on my professional commitments and the upcoming birth of my children."

    Tutera and Jurica, who wed in Vermont in September 2003, separated on New Year's Day 2013, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court documents filed by Tutera on April 19 and obtained by PEOPLE. The filing, which cites "irreconcilable differences," also states that the two men are expecting the birth of twins via a surrogate in July.

    But, reports TMZ, on April 17 Jurica filed legal documents in Connecticut to end the union.

    In the papers, Jurica claims, according to TMZ, "After repeated attempts at marriage counseling and therapy, we have been unable to save our relationship due to [Tutera's] addiction to sex."

    In his filing, Tutera seeks full legal and physical custody of the twins, with visitation for Jurica. He also does not wish to pay spousal support and asks that Jurica be responsible for all legal fees related to their split and the division of property.

    TMZ reports that in his papers, Jurica, who also is demanding full custody of the unborn children, says Tutera is the breadwinner in the relationship, earning more than $1 million a year.

    Hmm, I rather like David Tutera. I could obviously be completely wrong here, but be he seem's like a pretty upstanding guy to me. I hope those two can come to SOME type of amicable agreement for the sake of the babies on the way

    wonder who the biological father of the twins is and if that plays into a judge's custody decision.

    David Tutera's Husband 'Devastated' by Ongoing Divorce Drama

    By Aili Nahas

    David Tutera's estranged husband is extending an olive branch in their ongoing, and increasingly salacious, divorce fight – and hoping the WE tv celebrity wedding planner does the same.

    "I was devastated by David's unilateral decisions, both in 2012, and again this year, to end our marriage, and they sent me into a tailspin, from which I am proud to say, I have recovered," Ryan Jurica tells PEOPLE in a statement.

    "I only wish David the best; I only want the best for him. David and I were partners for over a decade in love, life and business."

    "We are about to be parents of two beautiful children," the statement continues. "Our children are and always will be siblings – and I am hopeful that David will take a step back from his anger and his desire to publicly try our marital conclusion, and instead address this most personal of issues in a private, mature and fair manner – as I have always done and will continue to do."

    Jurica's request for privacy comes after Tutera responded to allegations that Jurica made in a divorce filing about alleged sexual indiscretions that the TV personality committed. In the papers, which TMZ.com obtained, Jurica wrote, "After repeated attempts at marriage counseling and therapy, we have been unable to save our relationship due to [Tutera's] addiction to sex." He also alleged his husband hired prostitutes.

    Tutera fired back, blasting the allegations as "lies" and saying, "I believe them to be fabrications of a desperate individual in order to gain a legal advantage in our separation."

    Jurica and Tutera married in September 2003 in Vermont, where same-sex marriage is legal, and they have a domestic partnership in California, where they lived. (Same-sex marriage is not legally recognized in California.) The couple separated on New Year's Day 2013 and are both fighting for custody of twins that they're expecting via a surrogate in July.
