'Criminal Minds' Star

I Didn't Cheat on My Wife

... We're Separated

"Criminal Minds" star Thomas Gibson wasn't pulling a fast one on his wife by conducting an online relationship with a shameless catfisher -- sources tell TMZ, the actor and his wife have been separated for years.

Sources close to the couple tell us, Gibson and his estranged wife Christine Gibson still live together for the sake of their children, but they've been separated for 2-and-a-half years ... six months before Thomas started messing around with one of his Twitter fans.

As we reported, Gibson and the woman -- who catfished him by posing as a porn star -- carried on a heated relationship for two years before Gibson discovered the entire thing was a sham ... he even sent her a sexy hot tub video (it's hilarious).

Bottom line: Gibson might be a sucker ... but he's no cheater.

By today’s standards of freaky, Thomas is closer to saintly in comparison. While embarrassing somewhat I do not think he should be ostracized. Please don’t bully him, expose her instead.

I'm not sure I understand all the "hate" comments. I think the video shows a man do***enting a small moment of his life. I don't see anyone else in the hot tug with him, so I'm sure where the cheating part comes into play - but then again , there might be something I'm missing. I enjoyed seeing him at his most vulnerable - him just being himself.

I guess he thinks as long as his wife isn't at home it's OK to screwed around.

Everyone who is insulting Thomas because of this obviously aren't Criminal Minds fans, and certainly aren't fans of Thomas so why are you even commenting on here?! No one knows how much (if any) of this story is even true, so leave him alone!!

Damn, Thomas. Did you loose a bet or something? It looks like you married your homely looking grandmother. You should have stuck with Darma. She's still super hot.

What a maroon. It took you TWO years to find out you were being catfished? AND don't you have to be separated to be. . .separated? Stupidity on so many levels.

Leave them alone. Let them sort it out. Putting it all over the world is gross and rude.

He mentions that Agatha thinks the video is "risky." Agatha is his daughter.
