Emmy Rossum, Sam Esmail “Secretly Married” Claim NOT True
Emmy Rossum and Sam Esmail are NOT “secretly married,” despite a speculative report. Gossip Cop can help set the record straight.
E! asks in a headline on Friday, “Are Emmy Rossum and Sam Esmail Secretly Married?” The accompanying story also wonders, “Do Emmy Rossum and Sam Esmail have multiple reasons to celebrate?” The outlet notes Esmail’s show “Mr. Robot” score six Emmy nominations on Thursday, but speculates the couple has more than just that to celebrate.
The article goes on to say how Rossum’s “Shameless” co-star, Shanola Hampton, sent congratulations to Esmail on Twitter, writing, “To the genius that is @samesmail CONGRATS on marrying my girl @emmyrossum, oh and on SIX #EmmyNominations!” It’s further said how Rossum “responded to the message with a smiley face but provided no additional context,” and “many of the actress’ Twitter followers are now speculating that she’s tied the knot.”
Not so fast. Rossum denied the nuptial rumor shortly after E! posted its speculative story without bothering to fact-check. The actress good-naturedly responded to the “secretly married” question, “hahaha nope not yet!” Rossum and Esmail became engaged last year. But when they’ll walk down the aisle is unclear for now. Gossip Cop will be sure to let readers know when it actually happens.
