Star Jones Reynolds is hitting back against rumors that her marriage to Al Reynolds is on the rocks – and threatening legal action against those responsible for spreading them.
“These categorically false stories and their continuation are clearly being generated by someone for vindictive reasons alone,” the former View cohost, 44, says in a statement issued by her publicist.
The statement goes on to say that the couple’s “legal representatives have been investigating the source and motivation of these boldfaced lies for some time now and are very close to exposing the individual who has perpetrated them. At which time, appropriate legal action will be taken.”
On Wednesday, the New York Post reported that Reynolds has been telling friends she’s “heartbroken” because her marriage is falling apart. The paper quoted an unnamed source as saying, “Star has resigned herself to the fact that they’re not going to spend the rest of their lives together.”
However, Reynolds’s rep tells PEOPLE that there is no truth to the divorce rumors.
Reynolds and her husband, 36, married in 2004 in an elaborate ceremony that included the bride’s arrival at the church in a horse-drawn carriage.
“Every single wedding fantasy I ever had was fulfilled, down to the most handsome groom in the history of the world,” Reynolds told PEOPLE at the time.
