Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have NOT “split,” despite a report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story, which can be found in one of the tabloids.

In a story headlined “Tom $400 Million Split,” the National Enquirer says, “Hollywood A-listers Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are leading separate lives — and are on the brink of a nasty divorce after 28 years of marriage!” It’s claimed, “Tom is preparing to battle his estranged wife for the couple’s massive $400 million fortune.” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “At this point, their marriage is a total sham.”

“The only reason they’ve stuck it out this long is for purely professional reasons,” alleges the supposed snitch. An “insider” also claims, “Rita has become a total mess. She’s turned into a miserable person who’s always unhappy. She orders her staff and everyone in her life around like they’re her slaves. She’s pushing everyone away, including Tom.”

This story comes two months after the supermarket tabloid’s sister publication OK! similarly said Hanks and Wilson’s marriage was “crumbling.” More tellingly, though, is that it’s been over a year since the National Enquirer last claimed Hanks and Wilson were getting a divorce. All this time later, the allegations are no more accurate now than they were then. A rep for Hanks exclusively tells Gossip Cop this new “split” claim is “untrue.”
