'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.

Why is TMZ pointing the finger at Thomas Gibson only? You should be finding out who deceived, betrayed & TRICKED him for so long !!! She is the one who's picture and name should be splashed all over your website! Thomas was only looking for companionship etc...what he does in his personal life is not our business especially something so personal that by judging the video HE DID NOTHING WRONG. If you were being fair in this article you should have mentioned who the liar is instead of attacking just him. I think you showed poor taste.

In short, he had a fake marriage for 2 1/2 years, and a fake lover for 2 yrs. Wow.
It's his life though. He didn't hurt anyone but himself, if we are to believe in this whole thing as TMZ reports it.

TMZ, your less and less trustworthy.

The guy has been separated for 2 years! You failed to Mention that didn't you!?

Yet your parading him on the front page for two days trying to get something to loosen up, grab some attention, then find out he's been separated.

TMZ, your losing it. We like all kinds of stuff however painting the wrong picture?? Trying to say a celebrity is cheating when they are not because you don't even take the time to figure out the story??
A quote from Harvey: " Levin has stated that "everything is researched and vetted for accuracy."
HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!
Yea Riiiiiight!

Harvey... maybe if you'd stop putting soooo much effort into 'Flexing' for the boy toys, you'd put a bit more 'Integrity' in TMZ's reporting.

Whoever did this to him is disgusting.


Humiliates the entire family - not just T.G.


If you've ever been played - and we all have -


You KNOW the feeling.


Multiply it times eleven - when you're known.


Then it embarrasses your show, your agents, your lawyers, etc.


Perpetrator should be put to sleep.


Injected.


Can't trust anyone -

Translation: His agent called TMZ with the 'separation' story because Tom is worried he could be caught in another lie down the road. His wife is on board because if he loses money,so does she. They used the kids excuse for added sympathy. Even though throughout the ENTIRE VIDEO he's acting afraid someone will see him (which is more titillating than the act itself) they're hoping the public is too gullible to catch on. Now he an continue cheating without his rep taking another hit.

The fact that people seem to be OK and almost gleeful, with the fact that someone, who may be a parent and spouse themselves, has callously manipulated, deceived, humiliated and caused untold damage to the lives of a family, just because someone in that family is in the public eye is pretty telling. I think it seems pretty obvious that the man was obviously not in a good place when he embarked on this route, but rather than having a little understanding to someone, it is so much more fun to post vicious, nasty, comments. He and his wife have obviously attempted to maintain some sort of family life for their children and try to protect them from what is a difficult time, but of course that is something weird too in TMZ's sordid little world. But well done TMZ, better to have a good laugh at someone else's vulnerability and to hell with whoever else is hurt in the process. TMZ' pathetic attempt to 'apologize' - adding the word "shameless" to the description of their mysterious contributor, is not good enough. Why should she be allowed to walk away from this unscathed, why should her spouse or children (if they exist), not be made aware of what their parent is up to? And as for all you moral crusaders currently enjoying this families troubles, please ensure your angelic halo's are well polished, because when you slip or when your perfect little relationships and family go boom, be thankful TMZ don't consider you 'worthy'.
