As the host of WE TV's My Fair Wedding, David Tutera has given countless couples the fairy-tale weddings of their dreams. But his own happily-ever-after is quickly becoming a nightmare. Earlier this month, the celebrity wedding planner filed to end his decade-long domestic partnership with husband Ryan Jurica, TMZ reports.

According to legal documents filed in L.A. and obtained by the site, Tutera is seeking to end the relationship because of "irreconcilable differences." But other documents filed by Jurica two days earlier in Connecticut allege that Tutera's libido is to blame for the split.

"After repeated attempts at marriage counseling and therapy, we have been unable to save our relationship due to [David's] addiction to sex," TMZ quotes the papers as saying. "[David] has engaged in a pattern of hiring sex escorts and prostitutes to support his addiction."

Complicating matters further is the fact that the couple are expecting twins via surrogate in July. Per TMZ, both men have requested full custody of the babies-to-be. Jurica is also reportedly asking for spousal support -- which Tutera doesn't want to pay -- and says in his papers that the breakup, initiated by Tutera, sent him into a downward spiral. As a result, he alleges, he had to check himself into rehab.

Tutera and Jurica tied the knot in September 2003 in Vermont, where same-sex marriage is legal. Upon returning to their home in California, where same-sex marriage is not recognized, they filed for domestic partnership.
