They are Kacey Musgraves and her husband, Ruston Kelly, calling it really quits? An article by a tabloid states the two were heading for a breakup in January. Gossip Cop you can put this rumor to rest.

A couple of months ago, okay! She reported that Musgraves and her husband of two years were having marital problems. The claim stemmed from the news that musicians have recently deleted photos of each other from their respective Instagram pages, for unexplained reasons. An alleged “insider” revealed, “Your marriage seems to be coming to an end.” This suspicious source added that Musgraves “has been telling friends that marriage can be difficult and that he could make a mistake tying the knot so soon. After all, he met Ruston only nine months before he got engaged.”

This anonymous guy alleged other problems in the marriage by implying that Musgraves was “seduced” by Hollywood. “He thinks it has changed,” the source said, before they were drafted, “Kacey and Ruston love each other, but the spark is gone; everyone now hopes to officially announce their separation.”

This story is completely ridiculous. For one, even though the couple has no pictures of each other on their social media pages; they are still being followed. Neither Musgraves nor Kelly commented on why they deleted these images, but it does not seem to mean much, as they are clearly still together, although they are known to be very private about their marriage. They did not separate, which this privileged call stated should happen “any day.”

In February this year, the couple was spotted attending New York Fashion Week. Musgraves and Kelly were photographed hand in hand and looked welcoming, clearly very happy to be together. In fact, earlier this month, the couple made a rare appearance together on stage as Musgraves teamed up with Ruston for a duet of his song “Just For The Record” at a Nashville gig. They’re not broken, they’re not even working together.

Frankly, okay! has a terrible history when it comes to reporting on Nashville couples. Take, for example, the case of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. One month, the board is falsely denouncing the couple fighting as they did in a story Gossip Cop busted in May last year. The fabricated article insisted McGraw and Hill were headed for divorce after years of arguments and lies.

A few months later, the same magazine completely changed with another story about the famous singers. This time, the unspeakable confidence that McGraw and Hill were renewing their wedding vows after “solving their problems.” The tabloid was obviously trying to cover their tracks by insisting that the couple had solved their alleged problems, in fact Gossip Cop reported: they had no problem getting started. Whatever you are reporting should not be trusted.
