The story grew quickly after the National Enquirer reported that the Broadway actor had “walked out on his longtime lover David Burtka.” The tabloid said that the “two have been living apart” and were spotted “flirting with younger guys.”
The source claimed, “It’s not a trial separation, it’s definitely been a time-out for them, and fueled mainly by suspicions that each one has cheated on the other. David suspects that Neil’s late-night outings are less than innocent, while word has gotten back to Neil of his lover’s raunchy revelry in gay bars.”
Supposedly, the strife between the couple began with Harris’ “refusal to set a [wedding] date.”
All of that news couldn’t be further from the truth. Gossip Cop spoke to the former How I Met Your Mother star’s rep, who said, “There is absolutely no truth to the story. Neil, David and the twins are all living happily together in their new home.”
To drive the point home even further, Harris posted a photo to his followers that showed Burtka sweetly hugging daughter Harper while son Gideon grins in the foreground.
He wrote, “I couldn’t be more in love with my family. Any reports to the contrary are woefully mistaken. #grateful”
NPH has been very open about the fact that having a family with Burtka made him fall in love all over again. Love wins this round.
