Angela Bassett & Courtney Vance Split Rumor Wrong

Truth rating: 0

Once again, the bunch over at has decided to end a perfectly happy relationship.

“It appears that actress Angela Bassett and her husband actor Courtney Vance are having marital trouble,” the site is “sad” to report.

Bassett has been showing up to events by herself recently, explains MediaTakeOut, and last night she attended an event at the Apollo theatre without Vance or her wedding ring.

While it might not seem like a big deal (because it isn’t), the site claims to have done a “search” for “all the public pics that Angela’s taken in the last 3 years,” concluding that she had a ring every single time.

We bet.

Because Gossip Cop doesn’t spend all day staring at photos and drawing wrong conclusions, we actually checked in with a rep for the couple.

Bassett and Vance have a “fantastic, truly wonderful, blissful relationship,” we’re told. As for why Vance didn’t make it to the Apollo, the rep told Gossip Cop he’d just finished a movie and opted to spend time with the couple’s children instead.

At this point, the only relationship that should be severed is between MediaTakeOut and its readers.
