After being publicly called out by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Star is doubling down on its claim that the country superstars are set to divorce.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, the magazine WRONGLY declared the couple’s longtime marriage over in September, following the lead of other erroneous reports from the National Enquirer and Life & Style. Both Hill and McGraw SLAMMED the rumors last week, and implored the tabloids to stop printing falsehoods.

“Happy is good. I don’t know why happy can’t be a story,” said Hill. That’s because Star prefers its alternate reality, where instead of admitting a rumor was wrong, the mag chooses to spread more misinformation.

“Are Faith Hill and Tim McGraw headed for splitsville? No way, says the couple, but Star can reveal that the pair’s denial is just an attempt to hide the truth,” writes the magazine. The tab goes on, “Insiders say the country stars’ constant need to defend themselves is a major red flag.”

First off, that “red flag” only exists among message board conspiracy theorists. And secondly, what “constant need to defend themselves”? Hill and McGraw hardly ever openly address gossip, and were only forced to do so after the rumor mill just wouldn’t leave them alone.

“If they were truly happy, they wouldn’t pay attention,” a so-called “source” snipes to Star. Uh, they don’t “pay attention” — McGraw himself said they just “laugh it off” — but simply politely answered reporters’ questions during a recent press appearance. But Star knows that the truth doesn’t sell as well, and so it chooses to accuse the singers of being liars. That isn’t journalism — its offensive, self-serving nonsense used to perpetuate claims that were wrong from the start.
