Speculation about Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber being on the verge of a divorce is wrong. Gossip Cop can correct the record. Not only have we investigated the claim and found out it’s untrue, but the couple itself has also made clear they’re still very much in love.

According to Closer, Gerber and Crawford are “on the rocks after two decades as husband and wife.” The tabloid quotes a so-called “insider” as telling its sister publication, In Touch, “There has been constant drama in their marriage for years.” After noting how their kids, Kaia and Presley, have launched their own modeling careers, the magazine’s supposed source adds how Crawford and Gerber are now “living separate lives.”

Actually, their lives are far from separate. Just a few weeks ago, the couple celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary. And to mark the milestone, Crawford posted on Instagram a photo from their marriage ceremony. She captioned the picture, “@RandeGerber, I couldn’t have chosen a better man to do this thing called life with. I love you!” Gerber similarly added a throwback shot of the two together, along with the message, “20 years ago today, 2 amazing kids and this beautiful girl with her arms always holding on tight. Thank you for our life.”

On Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, respectively, Gerber shared on Instagram a shot of Kaia and Presley, with a note that read, “Thank you for raising these 2 with so much love. Happy Mother’s Day @cindycrawford,” while Crawford marked the day devoted to dads with the message, “@RandeGerber, thank you for being the best dad ever for our two munchkins — then and now. We all love you!” And just four days ago, the Casamigos co-founder posted a picture of himself with Crawford happily celebrating July 4th.

Gossip Cop will take Crawford and Gerber’s words of love for each other over the tabloid’s speculation about them heading for divorce. Meanwhile, a rep for Crawford recently assured us “none of [the tabloid’s story] is true.” What’s more the model’s spokesperson even told the magazine, “There are no problems in Cindy’s marriage,” and yet the publication chose to dismiss the rep’s remarks.

Closer’s other sister publication OK! also tried floating this same narrative about Crawford and Gerber getting ready to divorce a couple of weeks ago. It was false then and it remains untrue now. Maybe it’s time for these tabloids to divorce themselves from their unreliable sources.

Conclusion: The tabloid offers no proof that Crawford and Gerber are actually “on the rocks” after 20 years of marriage. It simply hides behind an unnamed “insider” who falsely claims they’re “living separate lives” and are about to divorce. But there’s nothing to back that up. Conversely, the two often post photos of themselves together, along with declarations of love for one another. And even though the model’s rep told both Gossip Cop and the publication the premise about her and Gerber divorcing was wrong, the magazine decided to run its wrong report anyway. For those reasons, we are rating the article as fiction.
