Break-up and split rumors have been swirling around Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka for months now. It seems that the grass is perhaps looking a bit greener on the other side- for both men and at the very least a trial separation is well underway. Neil has only been spotted leaving the couple’s NYC brownstone on a handful of occasions since relocating back east for his run on Broadway. According to the Aug. 25th print edition of The National Enquirer not only are the men taking a break but they both have been spotted flirting with others.
Sources say that while David Burtka often comes across as a loving Mr. Mom type he also has some pretty vital needs and has no problem leaving his twins with the nanny quite often. While Neil Patrick Harris has settled into a routine of heading for Japanese food after each show and then hitting up the bars later, David actually likes the seedier side of things. Forget about upscale anything, David can be found trolling one of the local gay clubs cruising for men like he did before getting together with Neil.
Since both men are allegedly actively seeking the company of others it’s safe to say that they have split at least for now. Do you think that the rumors are true and that maybe David got sick of waiting at home for Neil to spend quality time and so he found attention elsewhere? Or was Neil using work as an excuse to stay out longer looking for younger, available men to hook up with? Did they both cheat and is that what caused the current break up? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
Update: Neil came out on Instagram Friday to combat the rumors that he and David Burtka are breaking up and ending their engagement – “I couldn’t be more in love with my family – Any reports to the contrary are woefully mistaken.” This claim was accompanied by the photo below of David with the twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott. Is this a Beyonce-style break-up denial or is it real? Only time will tell. I’m always suspicious when A-list celebs address tabloid rumors. And nobody ever said Neil didn’t love his family, it’s David that the rumors concern!
