John Travolta and Kelly Preston are not nearing “divorce,” despite a new National Enquirer report. According to the tabloid, the couple’s 23-year marriage is in crisis over Travolta’s alleged “double life” secrets. Gossip Cop can bust this story, which follows countless other wrong Enquirer predictions of the Travolta-Preston marriage ending.

The article mostly rehashes decades-old claims about Travolta’s supposed sexual interests and secrets. It focuses on an ongoing legal dispute with pilot Doug Gotterba, whose story about Travolta’s alleged infidelity has been public for years. The Enquirer treats all of this as some kind of bombshell, even though it’s been giving Gotterba a platform since 2012.

The track record from the Enquirer regarding the Travolta-Preston marriage is appalling. The outlet once invented a “miscarriage scare” for the couple after they lost their teenage son. Just last year, the Enquirer tried to explain its previous wrong guesses about the duo divorcing by falsely claiming the Church of Scientology had “ordered them not to split.” It was a particularly pathetic bit of backtracking for an outlet that keeps saying how unhappy Travolta and Preston supposedly are, even as years go by and they remain married.

A lawyer for Travolta says there’s no truth to the latest allegation of trouble in the couple’s marriage, labeling the divorce speculation a fabrication. Given the total lack of any new spin on these tired old split rumors, Gossip Cop has no reason to believe the Enquirer knows something Travolta and Preston don’t.
