Ryan Jurica (left) recently filed divorce papers against his partner of 10 years, “My Fair Wedding” host David Tutera (right), in which he accuses Tutera of having a sexual addiction and hiring prostitutes.
In a statement to People, Tutera vigorously denies the claims.
“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. I believe them to be fabrications of a desperate individual in order to gain a legal advantage in our separation.
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.”
TMZ first reported that Jurica filed legal documents in the state of Connecticut to end the couple’s civil union. The papers cite “irreconcilable differences” and claim that the couple has “been unable to save [their] relationship due to [Tutera’s] addiction to sex.”
The pair are expecting twins via a surrogate in July. Both Jurica and Tutera are seeking full legal and physical custody of the unborn children.
