Matt Damon was spotted without his wedding ring a year ago, and an outlet claimed that it was a sign that his marriage was in trouble. One year later, Damon and his wife, Luciana Barroso, are still together.
Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso have been married for 15 years already. However, one outlet claimed last year that their union was heading south after The Martian star was photographed sans his wedding band. Find out the truth.
Matt Damon marriage crisis rumor
OK! published a report last May claiming that Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso were “experiencing some serious growing pains” during the lockdown. The couple was allegedly occupied with homeschooling kids and Damon’s changing filming schedule. Plus, they spent more time together, which allegedly only increased the tension between the pair.
The outlet also mentioned Damon’s long-time BFF Ben Affleck. It alleged that Barroso wasn’t happy with her husband helping Affleck through her breakup with Ana de Armas. She allegedly felt sorry for the Batman v Superman star but found his neediness a bit much.
It quoted an anonymous source claiming that Damon had to rush over to Affleck’s home to check on him every other day. And Damon’s gestures were allegedly already frustrating to Barroso.
Matt and Luciana still together
Gossip Cop debunked the report because Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso are still together. Also, OK!’s report had a lot of inaccuracies that only made its report all the more questionable.
When the report was published, Damon and Affleck were on different continents at the time. Damon and Barroso’s family was in Australia where he was filming Thor: Love and Thunder. Meanwhile, Affleck was in Los Angeles quarantining with Ana de Armas near his children.
Also, it’s not true that Affleck and the Knives Out star separated, and Damon had to comfort the Justice League star. Affleck and de Armas only split earlier this year, and they were very much together during the lockdown.
Moreover, Gossip Cop added that while it could not confirm whether Damon always wears his ring, it’s not uncommon for people to not wear their wedding bands on some outings. Celebrities are like other people who have logical reasons for not wearing their rings.
The rumor-debunking site noted that tabloids love to use ringless fingers as justification to claim that one’s relationship is on the rocks. However, the same narrative pops up all the time involving various celebrities, including Margot Robbie and Sarah Jessica Parker.
