Everyone had a lot of questions when the pictures surfaced of former American Idol star Katharine McPhee locking lips with her Smash director Michael Morris. Was it an affair? Are they dating? Did they know everyone could see them?
We now have some possible answers—it was probably the sign of an illicit affair that no one was supposed to see, except for the fact they were making out in public in broad daylight. Nonetheless, the scandalous celebrity couple is reportedly paying the price for it. It has already been revealed that McPhee, 29, was already separated from her much older husband, 47-year-old Nick Cokas. While McPhee may be off the hook for cheating, Morris is in some pretty hot water because his wife was very much in the picture.
Morris’ wife, actress Mary McCormack, kicked her cheating husband out of their family home as soon as she found out about the pictures, which, according to one report, was well before the proof of his affair went public. Morris allegedly knew about the illicit pictures before they were posted online and even tried to buy them himself to avoid the scandal of their affair from being exposed. When he realized that his plan to buy his way out of infidelity wouldn’t work, Morris reportedly confessed to his wife and told her that the photos would be surfacing soon.
McPhee, on the other hand, had no idea that the pictures of their affair even existed, and according to a friend, she only found out when they were e-mailed to her after being posted online for everyone else to see. “She is SO embarrassed she was caught,” another source told Us Weekly. “She should have known better!”
We agree; McPhee definitely should have known better, especially because she may now be responsible for breaking up a family—her secret sugar daddy and his wife have three kids together. “He wants to keep the family together, but as far as Mary is concerned, it’s over,” an insider revealed, adding, “There’s no going back.”
What do you think: Would you ever take your man back if you caught him having an affair?
