Elizabeth Banks did NOT “consult” with a divorce lawyer, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this rumor. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to Star magazine, Banks is “serious about ending [her] marriage” to producer Max Handelman, and has begun the legal process to do so. Banks and Handelman, who met in college and have been together for more than 20 years, share two young children together, but the magazine’s “insider” claims the actress’ career has supposedly become more important to her than her family.

“Max asked her to slow down, to spend more time at home, but she’s buried herself in work instead,” claims the publication’s dubious source. “He wants to make this work, but it sounds like Elizabeth might’ve made up her mind already.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Banks, who exclusively tells us the happy couple’s marriage is going strong, and the tabloid’s story to the contrary is simply “not true.” Also untrue was a recent claim by Star’s sister publication, OK!, that Banks was acting like a diva on the set of the upcoming Power Rangers reboot, and supposedly putting her young co-stars “through hell.” These latest divorce rumors about the actress are equally false.
