Katharine McPhee is dating her former "Smash" director Michael Morris, TMZ has learned ... and they're even making out in public -- problem is, THEY'RE BOTH MARRIED TO OTHER PEOPLE. 

Morris is married to actress Mary McCormack (who played Howard Stern's wife in "Private Parts") ... and they have 3 young daughters together, ages 2, 6 and 9.

29-year-old Katharine is married to 47-year-old producer Nick Cokas -- they have no children. 

Sources close to Katharine and Nick tell TMZ ... the two have been separated for 6 months and are living apart. They were married in 2008.

It's unclear where Michael's relationship with Mary stands -- but it seems it's also on the ropes, because over the weekend he was sucking face with Katharine in broad daylight in L.A. like he didn't care who saw. 

The two weren't shy with the PDA either -- holding hands and cuddling each other in Hollywood.

So far, no official comment from any of the parties involved.

Skank. Another typical Hollywood freak that can't keep a marriage.

While I don't know of her marriage issues, Im a big fan of Katharine, but she does have issues when it comes to certain male fans and she overreacts. She's threatened with charges and restraining orders before. If you wanna know more Karly give me ur email address and I'll tell ya! Shes a nice girl but I think personally she has some personality problems.

No male or female who is married should be kissing another on the lips like that. I hope both these 2 clowns' spouses toss them to the curb.

So sick of adults behaving badly. As usual, the only ones who are truly going to be hurt in all this are the children. Does this stupid, stupid man really think his children won't see this picture? The wife should sue for adultery.

Really? This is the number one story on AOL's homepage? Serious? All the crap that's going on in the world and, this is what the lead news story is? I knew that's all AOL/Huffington Post would run is fluff piece stories as soon as Obama became president.

Never liked that Katherine -if you remember on American Idol - on one show - (she shook her hand in the air with an angry face) she pretty much told the audience to shut up because she couldn't hear the judges talking - Never liked her cant figure out why she is where she is today!

Look they knew that they were being filmed and photo's were being taken of them.
Sooooooooooo They either wanted a "Kristin Stewart" type of scandal to boost their "Trending" power or , or, well I guess there is no "OR."
Lets face it Katharine McPhee or Michael Morris are NOT well known names, and are "on the "C+/B-" list if even that. So what better way to become talked about and move your status up to the B+ or A- list? I know, pull a Kristin Stewart/Leann Rimes by kissing a married coworker in sight for all see while you are still married.
It has worked in the past, why not again?

Kat is still a hottie though. I'd hit it! I met her before. She is however kind of spiteful to certain fans though by threatening with restraining orders and such.
