Neil Patrick Harris Told By Fiance David Burtka ‘Marry Me Or Set Me Free,’ Says Tab

Truth rating: 0

Neil Patrick Harris has been “slapped with a stinging ‘marriage ultimatum’ by his longtime fiancé David Burtka,” claims the National Enquirer.

According to the tabloid, Burtka has been “hot to tie the knot” since Harris began starring in the Broadway musical, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.”

“[Harris] shed 20 pounds for the role and strips down to his shorts on stage,” says a so-called insider before claiming now “gay men are throwing themselves at him, and it’s is driving David nuts!”

The tab’s “source” adds that Burtka told Harris, “Marry me or set me free” because he’s terrified he’ll “lose Neil if they don’t wed.”


In addition to the National Enquirer being wrong about Harris and Burtka’s relationship over and over again, the tabloid once (incorrectly) reported they were having a “Broadway wedding.”

Wait, now Broadway is what’s tearing them apart?


Regardless, a source tells Gossip Cop that this story is completely “false.”
