Oh snap! Here’s something you probably weren’t expecting: apparently Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson hit a rough patch in their relationship and split up for a full month earlier this year. Don’t worry, things are back the way they should be now – they’re together and very much in love, it was just rocky for a while.
From In Touch Weekly:
In Touch has exclusively learned that the couple, married for 26 years, temporarily split for a month.
“They hit a rough patch. They were leading separate lives,” a friend exclusively tells In Touch, revealing that for a month, Rita lived alone in their $26 million modern mansion in Pacific Palisades while her husband stayed at a producer pal’s home in tony Malibu Colony before leaving to film his new movie, A Hologram for the King, in Egypt.
“Although they attended social functions and walked their dog together,” a source says of the pair, “they were living in separate residences.”
According to the friend, “they just weren’t seeing eye to eye.” But the couple survived their temporary split by refusing to give up. “Tom and Rita are not just husband and wife, they are best friends. It will take a lot to split this couple up for good.”
Get it! I do believe these two are really in love. They’ve been together for SO LONG – it makes sense that rough patches are going to pop up, and sometimes taking some space gives a bit of clarity and diffuses a situation so they can get back on track. Glad to hear that was the case for them!
