Days after his manager confirmed his separation from the 'America's Next Top Model' alum, the former 'Brady Bunch' star speaks up, 'We just need some perspective.'
Christopher Knight apparently still holds Adrianne Curry close to his heart. Just days after his separation from the first winner of "America's Next Top Model" was made public, the Peter Brady of '70s series "The Brady Bunch" confessed that he still loves his estranged wife.
When met by TMZ at a photoshoot near Los Angeles on Tuesday, May 31, the 53-year-old actor admitted, "I love her dearly." Echoing what his and Adrianne's manager said in a statement explaining about their separation, he added, "We just need some perspective ... that's all it is."
Adrianne herself has taken to Twitter to comment on the separation's announcement. "so yeah, guess you heard about my f**ked up life.....its ok...we arent fighting...no matter what happens, we will know we put our best in," she tweeted. In another tweet, she wrote, "to all my wonderful guildies...now ya know why i havent been on warcraft. i shall return to you soon!"
Christopher and Adrianne went public with their decision to end their marriage on the five-year anniversary of their wedding last Sunday, May 29. Long-time friend and manager Phil Viardo explained, "After starting a relationship with what seemed to be irreconcilable differences, the couple has reached a period where those differences are no longer appreciated."
"The decision was mutually reached after it became clear to both that some perspective was needed in order to assess their unique union," Phil's statement regarding the split continued to read. "They still love one another but need some distance to consider their future."
