Miranda Lambert and husband Brendan McLoughlin were not "fighting" recently on the streets of New York, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can bust the unsubstantiated claim. In fact, not only do they publicly appear happy as ever, but we're also told the newlyweds are doing great.

According to Life & Style, Lambert and the New York City cop were caught "arguing in the streets," leading to speculation that the "honeymoon very well may be over" for them. To back up its story the outlet quotes a so-called tipster as saying, "Brendan and Miranda weren't holding hands or smiling. It definitely wasn't a romantic walk." The supposed source alleges, "Brendan was motioning with his hands as if they were arguing," before adding, "There was some sort of tension between them."

The article ends with how this purported "fighting in public" comes on "the heels of a shocking report that Miranda was seen boozing by herself" in New York. What the tabloid seemingly omits on purpose is that the "shocking report" was written two weeks ago by the magazine's sister publication, In Touch, which shares offices and writers. Regardless, Gossip Cop debunked that inaccurate story about Lambert allegedly turning to booze amid marriage problems with McLoughlin.

As for the latest tale, it's curious how the paparazzi follow the couple everywhere, and yet there are no photographs anywhere to suggest Lambert and her husband were "fighting" or demonstrably "arguing" in public. It also bears mentioning how Life & Style's piece is based on the assertions of an unnamed and unidentifiable "tipster." Conversely, the country singer's rep tells Gossip Cop the tabloid's story is "completely false."

Also significant is how on the very same day the article came out about the two clashing on the streets of New York, Lambert posted a video on Instagram of them joking around while doing laundry. The first-person video is proof of them having fun together as a couple. Lambert also shared on Instagram a number of photos of her and McLoughlin recently smiling throughout a number of Pride celebrations in New York.

The magazine doesn't exactly have a stellar reputation when it comes to reporting about the country singer. On August 29, 2018, it printed a cover story that insisted Lambert was pregnant with Evan Felker's baby and planning a wedding. The article quoted yet another questionable "insider" as saying, "Miranda's never been happier with a man than she is with Evan," and that they planned to wed around New Year's Eve. However, the very same day the article was published, Lambert and Felker had actually split up, and by January she was already married to McLoughlin. Whoops.

The outlet's other related magazines have been no more reliable either. In May, Gossip Cop busted Star when it incorrectly maintained on its front page that Lambert and McLoughlin were getting divorced after just 122 days of marriage. And just a week ago, we shot down a piece from the National Enquirer that wrongly contended Lambert and McLoughlin's marriage is "on the rocks." As far as we can tell, the only "fighting" going on is that between the tabloids and the truth when it comes Lambert's love life.

Our Verdict

Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
