“I don’t know why ‘happy’ can’t be a story,” Faith Hill once remarked. It was her response to another set of divorce rumors about her and country star husband, Tim McGraw. Rumors that plagued the couple since they wed over twenty years ago. Rumors that have surfaced yet again, thanks to tabloid magazines. So what is going on with all of this divorce talk? Is any of it true?
Rumor: Hill Mistreating McGraw
Five years ago, the National Enquirer alleged that the couple were getting a divorce because Hill was mistreating McGraw. They also claimed that Hill couldn’t trust him because he had sexual chemistry with Taylor Swift (he’s more than twice her age).
The couple responded to those rumors, with Hill calling them “perplexing.” This was when she said she didn’t know why them being happy couldn’t be a story. McGraw candidly stated, “We’ve been married 17 years, and since the first week we were married those things were out. We don’t even think about it. The only time we ever think about it is [when we] worry about the kids. But they’ve been around it, too, so they laugh it off.”
So those rumors were not true.
Rumor: McGraw Lying to Hill
Fast forward to 2016. Tim and Faith are splitting. Again.
This time the alleged incident was McGraw being too close to his ex-fiancee, Kristine Donahue. Reportedly, McGraw was acting as a father figure to Donahue’s son (with the boy even taking McGraw’s last name) and doing so without Hill’s knowledge. And Donahue was racking up debts in McGraw’s name.
But McGraw and Hill stayed together.
So as one article acknowledged, either the couple “patched things up” or that whole report was “bogus.”
Rumor: Hill Miserable
This year, the divorce rumors are back at work again. Another tabloid recently claimed that Hill is leaving McGraw because “Faith doesn’t want to be married to a man she can’t relate to anymore. She’s been miserable long enough, and it’s just a matter of time before she slaps Tim with a divorce.” But Gossip Cop, who covered the tabloid story, noted that the same tabloid reported just months ago about how in love the couple was. And McGraw and Hill have made no mention of anyone leaving.
So these divorce rumors are also false.
It doesn’t look like McGraw and Hill are headed anywhere but on tour, as they begin another season of their famed SOUL2SOUL tour.
