A tabloid claims Daniel Craig's ankle injury on the set of the latest James Bond movie is causing problems in his marriage to Rachel Weisz. The story is completely absurd. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
Back in June, the actor underwent minor ankle surgery after getting hurt while filming Bond 25 in Jamaica. Production on the film was temporarily halted to give Craig time to recover. The movie star was back on set two weeks after undergoing surgery, but NW claims the incident has created tension with his wife of eight years.
According to the magazine, the actress wasn't happy about having to spend a month caring for her husband. "They have all the money in the world to hire home help, but he's so protective of his privacy that Daniel would only have Rachel," a supposed source tells the outlet. "She was crying out for a break. Thank goodness she finally got it because she was teetering on the edge of walking out!"
The alleged insider goes on to say that Weisz "is literally breathing a sigh of relief now that Daniel's back on set" as he was "a slave driver from his bed and it left her reeling." The questionable tipster adds, "It was suffocating being at Daniel's beck and call. It's made her see him in a whole other light - and not a particularly good one. She hopes this time away from one another is what they need to get their relationship back on track."
The tabloid's report is fairly ridiculous. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the couple, who wasn't able to speak on the record, but assures us the outlet's article is nonsense. Craig didn't force his wife to nurse him back to health, and the actor's minor injury isn't sparking the possibility of a divorce.
It should be noted, Craig and Weisz were spotted celebrating their eighth wedding anniversary in London on June 22, which fell during the time the actor was recuperating from his injury. Just a couple of weeks ago, "Extra" asked Weisz for an update on Craig's condition, and she told the entertainment outlet, "He's very well, thank you. Really well. He's doing well." The idea that the actor's on-set injury has resulted in his marriage falling apart is just irrational.
Earlier this year, Star made up an equally ridiculous story about Weisz being the one who's the diva. Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for purporting that the actress forced Craig to go on a special mission to find her a particular type of acne cream. The incident never occurred.
Meanwhile, this wouldn't be the first time a tabloid has wrongly alleged that the actor's involvement in the Bond franchise was putting a strain on his marriage. In February, Gossip Cop called out Star for falsely claiming Craig's extreme diet and workout routine for the film was driving his wife insane. The gossip media simply has no insight into the couple's relationship.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
