Holly Madison has finally responded to her estranged husband’s divorce petition and the former couple both seem to want to finalize the case quickly.
According to court records, Madison filed her answer on February 2 to the divorce petition filed by her ex, Pasquale Rotella.
The same day the former “Girls Next Door” star filed her court docs, Rotella filed an affidavit in support of a request for summary disposition, which is legal talk for him asking the judge finalize the divorce without a hearing or trial. The coordinated filings would indicate the two have worked out their issues on their own regarding custody, support, and assets.
Back on August 31, Pasquale Rotella, an EDM festival promoter, filed for divorce from Holly Madison in Las Vegas court.
The couple’s two children, Rainbow Aurora and Forest Leonardo, were listed in the court records but Rotella was able to file his court documents under seal, so it is unclear what custody he was seeking.
Sources familiar with the situation told us at the time that the couple had been going through a difficult stretch and it does not appear any one single incident triggered the split.
The 38-year-old Madison and 44-year-old Rotella were married at Disneyland in September 2013 after dating for two years. Former “Girls Next Door” co-star Bridget Marquardt was a bridesmaid during the ceremony.
Madison famously dated Hugh Hefner from 2002 until 2008 and was his main girlfriend for several years.
