Country singing couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have been married for 17 years, which is quite long especially in the celebrity world.
The couple spoke to “Entertainment Tonight” about all the split rumors, saying they have no idea where “this stuff comes from”.
Faith and Tim, who are currently starring together in Las Vegas at the Venetian, squashed all the divorce reports.
There were even rumors circulating that Tim was romancing Taylor Swift and that Faith was horribly jealous.
Faith, 46, told “Entertainment Tonight’s” Nancy O’Dell, “[The children] know the truth . . . the people that you’re around they know the truth.”
Hill hit back at the rumors, telling O’Dell, “I don’t know why happiness doesn’t sell. I don’t know why tragedy sells and untruth sells!”
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, who have have three daughters, Gracie, 16, Maggie, 15 and Audrey, 12, also stated they put the brakes on expanding their family.
Hill stated, “Actually before we got married, that’s how we knew . . . we talked about five [children] and then we made it to three.”
The couple, who married in Louisiana back in 1996, defended their marriage after their performance in Vegas on Friday.
Faith stated, “[Rumors] seem to be running like crazy right now for some reason. It’s perplexing. I don’t know why ‘happy’ can’t be a story.” Hill insisted that they are “absolutely not” splitting.
Tim McGraw said he pays no attention to what the tabloids have to say about his marriage.
The handsome country star said, “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.”
It’s great to hear all the gossip about the longtime couple aren’t true. They are so adorable together!
