Katharine McPhee is slamming reports falsely claiming she said she has “no regrets” about cheating on then-husband Nick Cokas. Gossip Cop can help set the record straight.

McPhee is the September cover star for Ocean Drive magazine. In the accompanying story, she reflected on her experiences both personally and professionally. She said of her life, “I feel pretty grounded. I got married really young, and then divorced, and in the last couple of years, I felt like, Wow, this is what I should have been doing when I was 20 instead of planning a wedding. But I don’t have any regrets. All of the choices I made I learned from in a really deep way.”

Nothing was said about the cause of McPhee’s split. And yet the New York Post blared in a headline on Monday, “Katharine McPhee has ‘no regrets’ over cheating scandal.” Fellow tabloid newspaper the New York Daily News also declared, “Katharine McPhee has ‘no regrets’ about cheating on husband.”

But, again, McPhee never said anything at all about cheating. Understandably, the actress found the untrue reports to be upsetting. And now she’s hitting back.

“For those who can’t take words at the their meaning and need to add meaning for the sake of your headlines…. Let me clarify once more…,” she tweeted on Wednesday. “In the @OceanDriveMag article the ‘no regrets’ comment is clearly referring to having ‘no regrets’ marrying the wonderful man I did marry.”

Specifically calling out the Post and the News, McPhee went on, “Anything that is being suggested otherwise is meanspirited & full of lies. I hope ur headlines were worth it.” She added, “Who else did I miss to call out? This will be all you hear from me now. Thanks. Spread the love.”
