Double trouble, indeed. As previously reported on Tuesday, Oct. 22, Katharine McPhee was seen smooching her former Smash director Michael Morris in public over the weekend. Now, E! News has obtained a picture of pair locking lips after their lunch date at I Panini Di Ambra in Hollywood on Sunday, Oct. 22. The duo packed on the PDA in a parking lot, holding hands and sharing several kisses.
The shocking part, of course, is that the 29-year-old American Idol runner-up has been married to 47-year-old performer turned producer Nick Cokas since 2008. Morris, meanwhile, has been married to 44-year-old actress Mary McCormack since 2003. They are parents to 9-year-old Margaret, 6-year-old Rose and 2-year-old Lillian.
McPhee did not appear to be wearing her wedding ring during the afternoon outing with Morris. Reps for both stars did not respond to request for comment when contacted by E! News.
According to Life & Style, however, McPhee's marriage has been on hiatus for some time. "They've been separated for six months," a friend tells the tabloid. "Nick continues to co-manage her music."
The status of Morris and McCormack 's marriage remains unclear.
McPhee and Cokas first met in 2005 when they performed in a L.A. production of The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. They got engaged two years later and tied the knot in Beverly Hills on Feb. 2, 2008.
