Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are NOT getting divorced, despite an embarrassingly wrong report from one of the tabloids. Gossip Cop can easily bust the foolishly inaccurate story.

It’s alleged in the new issue of the National Enquirer, “Country music royalty Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are speeding toward a $150 million divorce — after Tim betrayed her with a secret son and an ex-fiancé who uses his name!” According to the “blockbuster exclusive,” Hill “flew into a rage after learning Tim’s ex, Kristine Donahue, goes by the last name of McGraw!”

“Tim knew Kristine was sometime using his last name, and he kept that from Faith,” a so-called “friend” claims to the supermarket tabloid. “He knew full well that Faith would blow up if she knew — and that ended up being the case.” What’s more, though, is the outlet further claims McGraw “played the role of devoted dad to Kristine’s son from another relationship, Tyler Zarbo, and stayed in touch with him behind Faith’s back!”

And after supposed issues with McGraw’s “partying and flirting,” it’s alleged “these latest revelations will spell doom for the couple.” Adds the outlet’s supposed tipster, “They just aren’t as close as they once were, and learning Tim knew all along his ex was using his last name may be the straw the breaks the camel’s back for Faith.”

But the National Enquirer is laughably wrong with its divorce claims, and the timing of this piece shows the magazine is pathetically clueless. The story, which is teased on the cover of the new edition, hit newsstands just hours after McGraw and Hill not only revealed they’ll be key advisors on “The Voice,” but also announced that they’re going on a joint world tour in 2017.

Called “Soul2Soul,” the run of concerts has been scheduled precisely because McGraw and Hill are so happy together and their marriage is strong. They’ve obviously not “speeding toward a $150 million divorce,” and their rep even tells Gossip Cop it’s “hilarious” how badly the tabloid messed this one up. But Gossip Cop isn’t surprised.

The National Enquirer and its sister outlet, Star, have spent years falsely claiming Hill and McGraw are divorcing (see some wrong Star covers below). Memo to both publications: Give it up!
