InTouch Weekly has reported that the actor is “taking it very hard,” adding, “This has been going on for quite some time now.” “This,” refers to the tension the couple was supposedly been having due to a party-hardy Lisa and a family-oriented Mark-Paul. However, E! News confirmed to sources close to the couple that rumors of Russell’s partying ways caused the split were untrue. The actor’s rep also told People.com, “They both remain focused on their family and are jointly committed to their children.”
