Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are not divorced, despite a report from a year ago that claimed they were splitting. Gossip Cop is taking a look back at this false tabloid cover story 365 days after we first busted it. Time has proven our debunking was correct.
On May 10 2017, Star published a cover story that wrongly exclaimed, â€śMila & Ashton: Divorce Announcement.â€ť In what was said to be a â€śHollywood shocker,â€ť the gossip magazine described the stars as being â€śmiserableâ€ť in their marriage due to â€śbattles over kids, money [and] other women.â€ť A so-called â€śfriendâ€ť maintained â€śtensionâ€ť had been â€śbuilding for a whileâ€ť between them as a result of these alleged problems.
For instance, it was asserted Kunis had â€śtrust issuesâ€ť and felt â€śthreatenedâ€ť by Kutcher working with Elisha Cuthbert on his Netflix series, â€śThe Ranch.â€ť This supposed â€śsourceâ€ť further contended Kunis was feeling â€śoverwhelmedâ€ť from raising their two kids while her husband slacked off and hung out with guys friends. It was also alleged that both she and Kutcher were struggling with their careers, which was just â€śanother brick to pileâ€ť on to their fracturing dynamic. Claimed the outletâ€™s purported tipster, â€śI think the situation could be much worse than anyone knows.â€ť
As it turned out, however, the publicationâ€™s fictionalized telling of the coupleâ€™s marriage was much worse than their reality. In fact, a rep for Kunis exclusively told Gossip Cop on the record that it was â€śabsolutely not trueâ€ť they planned to make a divorce announcement. Sure enough, a full 12 months have gone by, and no such announcement was ever made. Kunis and Kutcher never split, contrary to the claims.
And far from breaking up, the couple recently showed just how united they are. In an interview last month, Kunis exclaimed, â€śI have the worldâ€™s greatest husband.â€ť She went on to gush, â€śI got very luckyâ€¦ I got a man that has got a lot of patience and is incredibly supportive of our family.â€ť Strikingly, her comments clearly contradict the contentions from the tabloidâ€™s untraceable â€śfriend.â€ť
Gossip Cop must also point out that just two months after this magazine peddled its bogus breakup narrative, Kutcher slammed Star for falsely suggesting he was cheating with a mystery brunette. The actor tweeted, â€śYou should have heard how upset Mila was that I spent the day with our cousin.â€ť He further wrote, â€śSorry Aunt Jodie, these magazines lack integrity.â€ť Indeed, if the outlet had any integrity, it wouldâ€™ve apologized both for its untrue divorce report and for wrongly linking Kutcher romantically to someone who was an innocent relative. But to this day, the shameful publication still has not issued corrections for either of its big flubs.
