Former Rascal Flatts guitarist J. D. Rooney is reportedly divorcing his wife Tiffany Fallon because of an affair.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Rooney claims Fallon is having an affair with her personal trainer. He says the "adulterous relationship" began before he filed for divorce in January 2021, and he believes the affair is still going on.

Fallon has admitted to the affair, but says it only began after Rooney withdrew from their marriage due to "habitual alcoholism and drug abuse." Fallon also claims Rooney is guilty of cheating, as well. Rooney, on the other hand, denies abusing narcotics and says his drinking wasn't what caused their marriage to collapse, adding that he suffers from an alcohol disorder and is getting treatment. Rooney also admitted to starting an affair in 2020, but says he wasn't abusing alcohol or drugs at the time.

The former Miss Georgia and Playmate of the Year reportedly cited an incident that occured back in September of 2021 in the legal documents, claiming it was a culmination of his ongoing alcohol and drug abuse. In the early morning hours of September 9, 2021, Rooney was arrested for driving under the influence after police said he crashed his car into a tree near Franklin, Tennessee. He later plead guilty to the charge.

The two have been married since 2006 and share three kids together.
