NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Joe Don Rooney, the guitarist for Rascal Flatts, and his ex-wife Tiffany Fallon have started a nasty game in the world of divorce as they continue to accuse one another of adultery two years after they split up.

Rooney, 47, and the former Playboy model filed for divorce in January 2021, after 15 years of marriage. The country singer has allegedly accused his soon-to-be ex of cheating with her personal trainer starting in 2020 and maintains that the 'adulterous relationship' is still going on today, according to court documents acquired by TMZ. Fallon, 48, has admitted the relationship, but she also accuses the Grammy winner of infidelity. However, she asserts that her husband's alleged "habitual alcoholism and drug abuse"—not the alleged infidelity—was what ultimately led to the breakdown of their marriage.

Fallon has used the 'How They Remember You' singer's September 2021 arrest on DUI charges following a car accident near his Tennessee home as evidence. Rooney entered a guilty plea in June 2022 and spent two days behind bars.

Rooney was given 11 month and 29-day prison sentence but only had to serve two days in jail since the rest of the sentence was suspended, according to the Tennessean. Additionally, he pled "guilty to a first-time DUI offense, a Class A misdemeanor," and had to do DUI training. He was released on bond after being arrested with a $2,500 bond.

Rooney and Fallon, who exchanged vows in a ceremony in Cabo San Lucas on April 23, 2006, are now battling for custody of their three children, Devon Olivia, 8, Jagger Donovan Rooney, 14, and Raquel Blue, 12.

Rooney makes up one-third of the country music group Rascal Flatts. The trio band, formed in 2000, is among the most well-known country music performers ever with 17 No. 1 hits and more than 23.4 million records sold. Lead vocalist Gary LeVox and pianist Jay DeMarcus are the other members of the group.

Rascal Flatts has won more than 40 awards from the ACA, ACM, AMA, CMA, People's Choice, and many more, making them the most honored country band of the last ten years. The band's farewell tour, which was intended to mark their 20th anniversary, had to be canceled because of the pandemic. There are no current plans for the band to come back together to perform.
