Matt Damon and wife Luciana Barroso are not having a “secret marriage crisis,” despite a completely inaccurate tabloid report. The bogus article claims the actor is desperately trying to repair his relationship “to dodge a $160 million divorce,” but Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the bogus story.

According to the National Enquirer, the spouses have been negatively impacted by the drama surrounding Damon’s close friend Ben Affleck, and his split from Jennifer Garner. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Matt and Luciana have always been solid, but the Ben-Jen battle has left them divided.”

The actor and his wife were photographed outside of a therapist’s office last month, but the unreliable magazine wrongly contends that they’re attending sessions to save their marriage. “It’s helping Matt and Luciana resolve issues that have built up over the years,” says the alleged source. “Their therapist has taught them skills on how to deal with problems as they arise before they become death traps.” None of this is accurate.

Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us on background that Damon and his wife aren’t having marital problems. The real reason that the couple spoke to a therapist is because the actor’s dad is battling cancer, and he’s trying to cope with his illness. The actor’s loving wife of 12 years simply joined him for emotional support. Damon revealed his father was sick in an interview earlier this month, saying, “It’s been a slow unfolding; my dad’s sick, so that’s a process we’re going through.”

This is now the second time the clueless tabloid has failed to realize that the actor is currently dealing with his dad’s health issues. When Damon missed the premiere of his new movie Downsizing earlier this week, the magazine wrongly reported that he’s “in hiding” after receiving backlash for his comments about sexual misconduct. But as Gossip Cop noted, the actor was actually forced to miss the event due to his father’s imminent death. The Enquirer is once again creating additional, nonexistent problems in the actor’s personal life without any regard for the truth.
