Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy have not been living “separate lives” in the wake of the college admissions cheating scandal, despite a false report. Gossip Cop can debunk the untrue story. The spouses of more than 20 years aren’t headed for a divorce.

Huffman is currently awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty last month to paying $15,000 to have her daughter’s SAT scores boosted. Prosecutors are reportedly recommending four months of prison time for the actress, and according to Life & Style, she’s been all alone throughout the process.

A supposed source tells the outlet, “The scandal has put such a strain on their relationship. They sleep in separate bedrooms because they’re arguing so much. Felicity wants to save their marriage. She feels so alone and is terrified of the prospect of going to jail.” The alleged insider goes on to say that Macy “still loves” his wife, but he’s “barely speaking” to her at the moment and is “trying his best to get on with his life.”

The tabloid hides behind an unnamed and untraceable “source” to back up its story, but Gossip Cop reached out to Huffman and Macy’s spokesperson, who tells us on the record it’s “not true at all.” A rep for the spouses of more than 20 years assures us they’re not headed for a divorce over the college admissions controversy. We’re told the actor has been supporting his wife amid her legal troubles and they’re spending a lot of time together at home.

Meanwhile, Huffman and Macy were photographed hiking together in Los Angeles last month, proving they’re still finding time for outdoor activities despite the actress’s looming court sentence. Unfortunately, we’re not shocked that Life & Style is attempting to tear the couple apart.

Gossip Cop already busted the magazine in March for wrongly reporting that Huffman and Macy were headed for a divorce over the college admissions scandal. That ridiculous article even alleged that the “Desperate Housewives” star had caught her husband using a dating app. In reality, the longtime spouses have remained united.

Just a few weeks ago, Gossip Cop called out the tabloid’s sister publication, In Touch, for falsely claiming Huffman and Macy’s marriage was “falling apart” as a result of her facing prison time. This ongoing storyline about the state of the couple’s relationship simply isn’t accurate. The gossip media is just taking advantage of the actress’s legal troubles in an attempt to create marriage problems as well.
