Julia Roberts and Danny Moder are not headed for a split over the actress reuniting with former co-star Dermot Mulroney for a new TV series, despite a bogus report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the alleged drama. We’re told it’s all fabricated.

Mulroney, who previously co-starred with Roberts in My Best Friend’s Wedding and August: Osage County, has joined the actress’s upcoming Amazon show “Homecoming.” According to Life & Style, the actress’s husband isn’t happy about his wife working with the handsome actor yet again. “Julia’s reunion with Dermot hasn’t gone down well with Danny,” a so-called “source” tells the magazine. “Their 15-year marriage is on the rocks.”

The outlet’s questionable source further contends that Roberts and Moder were having marriage problems even before Mulroney joined her new series. “Her controlling ways, their different approaches to parenting and his desire to have his own career and be the man of the house have all contributed to arguments,” says the alleged insider. “They have been living separate lives.” The seemingly phony tipster concludes, “Unless they can come to terms with their issues, they’re headed for divorce.”

None of this is accurate. For starters, Roberts and Mulroney have been friends since the release of My Best Friend’s Wedding more than 20 years ago, so Moder knows the actor well. Additionally, Mulroney shares two daughters with his wife of 10 years, Tharita Cesaroni. Regardless, Gossip Cop is told on background by a source close to the situation that Roberts’ husband isn’t jealous of her longtime friend and frequent co-star.

As for the tabloid’s assertion that the actress and her husband are headed for a breakup, that simply isn’t the case. Roberts even said in the December issue of InStyle that one of “the three keys to joy” in life is to “marry the right person,” just as she did. Unfortunately, we still often have to debunk phony stories about the actress’s marriage being in trouble, so we’re not surprised by this latest take on the topic.

Gossip Cop recently busted Life & Style for publishing a bogus cover story alleging that Roberts had a “secret affair.” No such infidelity occurred, and this latest article involving jealousy over Mulroney is more lies.
