A new tabloid report claiming that Margot Robbie's husband Tom Ackerley walked out on the actress because he can't handle her fame is completely untrue. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We're told it's simply false.
According to Woman's Day, the assistant director is resentful of his wife's rising stardom and getting pushed to the sidelines as a result of it. An alleged source tells the magazine, "Tom's been struggling to deal with Margot's surging fame since they moved to LA, and they've been growing apart over the last few months." As the story goes, the tension recently escalated to the point where he walked out.
"He's been staying with friends, and Margot's best friend has flown into LA to be with her," says the questionable source. "She's trying to put on a brave face, but inside she's heartbroken and telling friends how lonely and isolated she feels. She's even questioning her career now, after what it's done to her marriage." The seemingly phony insider also recycles the false claim that Ackerley is jealous of his wife working alongside leading men such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Alexander Skarsgard and Jared Leto.
However, there's nothing remotely true about any of this. For starters, the spouses run their own production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, so he play a big role in his wife's career. Ackerley is one of the producers of I, Tonya and several of the actress's other upcoming movies. Robbie and Ackerley like to keep their relationship private, but Gossip Cop is told on background by a source close to the couple that they couldn't be happier together.
Curiously, the tabloid doesn't mention when Ackerley supposedly walked out. Was it when Ackerley posted a smiling selfie with Robbie right after the new year? Or was it after Robbie and Ackerley laughed and looked in love at the Critics' Choice Awards?
Unfortunately, Robbie's nonexistent marital drama is an ongoing narrative in the pages of Woman's Day. Gossip Cop recently busted the magazine for falsely claiming that Robbie had turned to Skarsgard amid her alleged marriage problems. Shortly before that nonsense, we shot down the outlet's fabricated story claiming Ackerley is upset about Robbie reuniting with DiCaprio for an upcoming movie.
In addition to those lies, we also debunked a bogus story about Robbie's friends telling her she's too successful for her husband. The tabloids can keep insisting that the actress is on the verge of a split, but that doesn't make it true. Not only do the photos of the two of them disprove it, but Gossip Cop also confirmed with our Robbie sources that her and Ackerley's marriage is going strong.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
