Tom Hanks Rita Wilson Split

(In Touch)

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson Quietly Separated For a Month,” reads the headline of a new In Touch story, which goes on to claim that even though they have been “inseparable during an August getaway at their home on the Greek island of Antiparos… just weeks prior, things weren’t so rosy” between the two stars.

According to the tabloid, “The couple, married for 26 years, temporarily split for a month.”

In Touch even quotes a supposed “friend” as saying, “They hit a rough patch. They were leading separate lives,” with Wilson living “alone in their $26 million modern mansion in Pacific Palisades while her husband stayed at a producer pal’s home in tony Malibu Colony before leaving to film his new movie, A Hologram for the King, in Egypt.”

“They just weren’t seeing eye to eye,” adds the source for the magazine, which then attempts to cover itself by noting, “The couple survived their temporary split by refusing to give up… It will take a lot to split this couple up for good.”

Enough. Gossip Cop investigated, and the In Touch story is 100 percent bull split. Hanks and Wilson NEVER separated — not even for a month. And they have NOT been “leading separate lives.” Hanks’ rep tells Gossip Cop exclusively that In Touch’s report is “hogwash.”
