Rumors have surfaced that infidelity is at the root of the couple's issues. It's no surprise that Michael's lawyer, Michael Jay Heller, soundly disagrees. He spoke to E!

"This incorrect allegation that he was busted for committing adultery, if it's true, she certainly would have answered his papers countersuing him for adultery. She has not done that."

In addition to the whisperings of adultery, an insider claims "pressure from filming clearly put a strain on their marriage." We can hope her new castmates and co-workers who have been through this before (Ramona, we're looking at you) will lend a hand to Jules as she deals with the pressure of a public divorce.
