Hugh Hefner's ex Holly Madison files for divorce from Pasquale Rotella

Another romance turned to ashes! Hugh Hefner's ex Holly Madison has decided to call it quits with her husband Pasquale Rotella. ET reports that the model, showgirl and television personality had filed for divorce a couple of weeks ago. The couple were married for four years and have two children together. The two decided to end their marriage after their romance reportedly fizzled out. Sources said that the split is more or less amicable and nothing too dramatic.

The couple tied the knot after having their first child Rainbow Aurora in March 2013. The couple met for the first time in 2011 and sparks flew between the two - they wed just three months after getting engaged. Rotella is the founder of Insomniac Events, the promotion company behind the popular Electric Daisy Carnival music festival.

Holly and Rotella wed in a sweet, intimate ceremony at Disneyland in Anaheim, California and even had the entire park closed to the public. A representative had said in a statement, "Their six-month-old daughter Rainbow was the surprise guest of honor. The wedding was held inside Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. This is the first marriage for both." Their relationship did seem pretty strong - it even endured Rotella's 2013 legal drama where he was accused of taking  $2.5 million in funds from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and allegedly used the space to host raves or all-night parties.

ET's source added that the two are committed to their children and are doing what is best for their kids.  Holly Madison's last relationship too died down the same way. Holly was set to marry late Hugh Hefner and have his kids in 2002. She was Hef's "No.1" girl then but the couple split up 2008. Hugh said at the time that he wasn't interested in kids or marriage.

"I love Holly very much and I think we're going to be together the rest of my life, but marriage isn't part of my puzzle. It's not a personal thing; I just haven't had much luck with marriages," he said. Ironically, Hefner did find love just 4 years later with Playboy playmate Chrystal Harris. The two had a dramatic age difference of 60 years but it didn't bother Hef then. He wanted to spend more time with Crystal. "The dramatic age difference between difference & Crystal & me really doesn't matter,' he tweeted. 'Whatever time I have left, we want to spend together," he had said in a television interview.
