One of this week's tabloids claims Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer saved their supposedly troubled marriage by working together again on a new TV series. The story is completely false. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk it.
The spouses of eight years met while filming the HBO series "True Blood," but according to OK!, their relationship hit a lull when the show ended in 2014. The two are working together again on the upcoming Pop TV comedy-drama "Flack," in which she stars and he serves as an executive producer. An alleged insider tells the magazine, "This show has been the shot in the arm they needed. Having no other distractions helped them reconnect. Everything is going great again."
The magazine's premise is very flawed. For starters, Paquin and Moyer have their own production company, CASM Films, which they launched before "True Blood" went off the air. The spouses produced several projects together prior to teaming up on "Flack," and have additional projects in various stages of development. The couple's new series doesn't mark the first time they've reunited professionally since the end of "True Blood," despite the magazine suggesting otherwise.
In fact, Moyer directed Paquin in the upcoming movie The Parting Glass, which they shot before going into production on their upcoming Pop TV series. Simply put, the spouses have been working together since "True Blood" ended, so the idea they repaired their marriage by teaming up on "Flack" just doesn't make sense.
Regardless, the tabloid's story is based on claims from an anonymous and untraceable "source," but Gossip Cop checked in with Paquin's rep, who tells us on the record that it's untrue. The actress and her husband weren't having marriage problems prior to working together on "Flack." A source close to Moyer also confirms that the magazine's article is fabricated.
Unfortunately, this isn't the first time we've had to debunk a bogus story about Paquin and Moyer's happy marriage. Gossip Cop previously busted OK!'s sister publication, Star, for falsely claiming that the couple got into a drunken fight at an HBO party. The tabloid alleged that the two got into a shouting match at the event after the actor admonished his wife for being "wasted." Not a single other publication in the world reported that the spouses got into a heated exchange at the very public gathering. That's because it never happened. This latest article surrounding the couple's relationship is equally baseless.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
