Actress and American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee, 29, was recently spotted holding hands and making out in public with Michael Morris, who co-directed her TV series, Smash. The only problem is that they’re both married, just not to each other.
Morris is currently married to actress Mary McCormack, his wife for over a decade, while McPhee is the young wife of producer Nick Cokas, 47, whom she married in February 2008. So, does this mean McPhee and Morris are having an affair? A source close to the young actress has revealed that her May-December marriage is on the rocks and that she has actually been separated from her older husband for the past six months. Last we heard, however, Morris was still with his wife.
So, there’s no word yet on whether this is the beginning of a new celebrity couple, or the sign of an illicit affair between a young actress and a director. It wouldn’t be the first time—we all remember when 23-year-old Kristen Stewart destroyed her relationship with Robert Pattinson by having an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, 42-year-old Rupert Sanders.
What do you think: Is it still considered cheating if you and your husband have been separated for six months?
