David Tutera’s Sex Addiction Ended Relationship, Alleges Partner

david-tutera-ryan-jurica-getty-3There are two sides to every story and the flip side to David Tutera’s breakup is explosive. Yesterday we reported that My Fair Wedding host had announced the end of his decade-long domestic partnership and his intention to sue for sole custody of the couple’s unborn twins, now we’ve learned that Ryan Jurica had already filed papers to end the union due to Tutera’s constant hiring of male prostitutes to support his uncontrollable sex addiction.

TMZ has learned that two days ago Jurica filed documents in Connecticut, where the couple was married in 2003, to end their civil union. In them he blamed Tutera’s  sexual appetite, for which he refused to seek help, for the end of their partnership. Jurica alleges that “after repeated attempts at marriage counseling and therapy, we have been unable to save our relationship due to [David’s] addiction to sex.”

He also claimed that to nourish his addiction to sex,  Turtera engaged in a pattern of hiring sex escorts and prostitutes.

Jurica is also demanding full custody of the twins they’re expecting in July via a surrogate.

These allegations are enough to drive a guy to drink. TMZ found out that Jurica has been arrested for DUI and a second time for public intoxication —all with the past five months. Jurica eventually checked himself into an in-patient alcohol rehabilitation center.

    I’m a sex addict. Problem is I’ve been in withdrawal for 10 years now. Men do not come in a bottle to my chagrin.

    There is no such thing as sex addiction. Check the DSM if you disagree. Also, Dan Savage had a nice column about this.
