Multiple Births Parenting

Bryan and Jenny Masche Separate

Just a week after it was revealed that Bryan Masche was arrested for fighting with his wife and father-in-law, Jenny has filed for separation.

Bryan and Jenny Masche

According to E! News, the ‘Raising Sextuplets’ mom, filed for legal separation from her husband on Sept.17 – a day before the details of Bryan’s arrest hit the news.

The couple’s six-year marriage imploded after a fight on Sept. 11th at the Arizona home of Jenny’s parents, Sue and Robert Simbric, which resulted in his arrest. According to reports the disagreement escalated when Bryan discovered Jenny planned to go to the Phoenix area to meet friends, while he wanted to drive the couple’s six kids – Savannah, Bailey, Grant, Cole, Molli and Blake – more than 200 miles to Lake Havasu.

Reports say that Jenny didn’t know if Bryan planned to return with the children.  The Police tried several times to get Bryan handcuffed, but the reality star, “was hesitant and refused” and almost needed to be tasered.   He was then taken to the Yavapai County Detention Center where he was booked and released on bond.

Jenny’s mom Sue told

“We’re very, very sad, about the split. Other than that I cannot comment on my daughter’s marriage.”

A spokesperson for We TV said:

“Out of respect for the Masche family and their privacy during this time we are not going to comment.”

Radaronline reports that Jenny  is requesting to live separate and apart, as part of her court bid to grant an order of legal separation.  She is seeking both sole legal custody and primary physical custody of the kids with reasonable visitation for Bryan.

In addition, Jenny is asking for child support but is requesting an order from the court determining that neither party pay spousal support to the other.

She is also asking for equitable division of certain joint, community and other property and debt and that each party pay for their own attorney fees.

By way of Arizona law, both Jennifer and Bryan must attend and complete a Parent Education Program.  Failure to do so may result in Contempt of Court.

  • Well, for one thing,brian is lazy and does not do his share of helping his wife take care of those children. Of course it is going to be hard raising 6 kids. I am glad she left him and he better get ahold of his RAGE before he really hurts someone. Now brian is going to have to get off his ass on his weekends whe he has his kids and cook for them and watch them. Maybe Jenny will be able to get some sleep badly needed. They need to watch Ethan and his wife and 6 children on their reality show. He is not lzy and he loves his wife and children.

  • Ugh! He’s a real creep. I watched the show and she did everything to save this marriage. I hope she goes through with the divorce. I am sure that this is not the first bad incident with him.

  • Just watched the show for the babies 2nd birthday. He called Jenny retarded for telling him not to be offensive.
    Just a tip, Bryan, but you DO come across as very rude and offensive. I hate to see any marriage end but when one of the parties are so completely childish and selfish, then that’s the best thing that could happen. Especially in this case. I totally agree with the other two comments. I can’t believe you could be as callous as you come across.. especially to a woman who gave you those beautiful babies. Grow up.

  • Hey I am so sorry to hear about the Seperation I think that You Jenny and You Brian are great people On the shows that I have seen of yours Brian you do come across as rude but other than that you are a great guy Jenny I hope u reade these ause I watch your shows and really look forward to them cause I am 29 and I have a 22 month old he will be 2 on June 25 2011 he was born in 2009 and he is a biter and I really need your advice cause I noticed on one of the segments that one of your boys is a biter also how do I do dicipline the right way for a 22 month old?
