Katharine McPhee and Her Married ‘Smash’ Director Call It Quits
In light of the photo that surfaced clearly showing Katharine McPhee and Michael Morris (who happens to be married with kids) in a parking lot lip lock, the Smash star and the director have ended their affair.
According to PEOPLE‘s source, “Katharine is no longer seeing Michael — at least for now.”
Since the pic went public nearly a month ago it’s been “an incredibly hard time for Katharine,” according to the mag.
Well, another person who is probably going through a harder time is Morris’ wife, actress Mary McCormack, who apparently kicked him out of the house and has been busy taking care of their three daughters, Lillian, 2, Rose, 6½, and Margaret, 9, in the midst of the media storm.
“Mary is a strong woman,” another source told the weekly. “Her dedication to her children will remain her focus and gift.”
To be fair, the 29-year-old American Idol alum also has a ring on that finger, having said “I do” to 48-year-old Nick Cokas in 2009. The two have reportedly been separated for months, but aren’t headed for permanent Splitsville just yet: “Katharine still has no plans to move forward with divorce at the moment,” added their source, “though they are not living together.”
