Ghostbusters star Melissa McCarthy is not wearing her wedding ring – and her husband Ben Falcone has also been seen in LA without a band on his ring finger.
Fuelling speculation that all is not well between the pair, Ben and Melissa haven’t been seen in public together since August.
US publication National Enquirer speculates Ben’s close friendship with his Office Christmas Party co-star Jennifer Aniston could be partly to blame in the possible relationship breakdown.
‘They were very close on set in October,’ a source says. ‘Jen thought he was the funniest guy around, which definitely boosted his ego.’
There is no suggestion at all that the duo are any more than friends - but their obvious chemistry is believed to have still bothered Melissa.
Rumours of marriage troubles first surfaced last year, which were denied by the couples’ rep. But now, as Melissa and Ben team up on a new project Life of the Party, friends are concerned their relationship may not cope under the pressure.
