Rumors are still circulating that country music superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will be getting a divorce in 2013. These allegations stem from a tabloid cover story which claims that Tim McGraw has gay tendencies and that he also cheated on his wife with Taylor Swift. In this latest update, we’ll break down the largely fictitious story.
The National Enquirer, perhaps the most unreliable source of news and information, was the first to publish that the McGraw/Hill household was divided. In what can only be described as a paradox, they have accused Tim of both being gay and cheating on his wife with another woman. We’re not really sure how that even works.

The gossip rag is claiming, however, that the pair are going to be engaged in a $35 million dollar divorce. That figure was carefully determined by selecting a number out of thin air and then hitting the “enter” key on a computer.
The most laughable portion of the story is the claim that a former bandmate is writing a tell-all book that will out Tim McGraw for his homoerotic antics on tour. A source (not really) revealed to the magazine that:
"Tim dared his drummer Billy Mason to run across the stage in front of thousands of screaming fans wearing bottomless leather chaps that exposed his butt. As Billy did it, Tim reached down and smacked him on his bare backside as a joke--and the nearly sold-out crowd roared with laughter!"
The “insider” was concerned with appearing homophobic (even though the entire article is devoted to gay bashing) and wanted to reiterate that:
“Tim has a huge gay fan base and, actually, he's proud of that. But he doesn't want someone on a smear campaign casting aspersions about him that just aren't true."
This, naturally, makes no sense considering it would be the source, himself, who is smearing Tim. If you’re going to make up a story, shouldn’t it at least make sense?
