Barack and Michelle in ‘Marriage Crisis’?
This week the globe reports that Barack and Michelle Obama’s marriage is in jeopardy after the former first lady was spotted holding another man’s arm. Sources say Michelle’s recent visit to a Miami racetrack to see Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton has caused some major tension in their marriage. The magazine previously reported that Barack was furious at Michelle’s “celebrity crush” on the driver. But this week, an insider says things have only escalated. According to the article, Michelle wants to undergo cosmetic work to woo the “good” young racer.

“Barack is appalled that Michelle dresses up and flirts with hot younger guys,” reveals one rat. “It’s humiliating for him and something he doesn’t want to tolerate. But Michelle doesn’t let anyone tell her anything, especially her jealous husband. She is enjoying this new chapter in her life as well as her freedom. Their fights have become seriously toxic. They yell and yell at each other all the time and none of them flinch.”
‘Brawl’ with Michelle over ‘Nip/Tuck plans’?
This report is absolutely ridiculous and we have no reason to take it seriously. First, we debunked that globe‘s story about Michelle’s alleged “crush” on Hamilton weeks ago. As we said at the time, a single photo of them hugging combined with anonymous tips isn’t enough to indicate any romantic feelings on either side. And since the pair haven’t really been linked since the Miami incident, we’re confident it was all just pointless gossip.
And with the outlet’s latest story, we’re absolutely certain there’s no story here. There is absolutely no evidence that Michelle is currently or ever has been looking for any type of cosmetic surgery. This seems far less like the dedicated activist the public knows and a lot more like a typical tabloid fantasy. And when you check in for the latest news on the former first lady, there’s no whispering of nips or tucks. As far as we can tell, ahead of the upcoming midterms, she’s fully focused on her voter advocacy efforts.
So we suspect her brief encounter with Lewis Hamilton last month is the furthest thing from her right now.
The tabloid about Michelle Obama
While this story is shockingly far-fetched, it’s no surprise that it comes from globe. Last year, the outlet reported that Barack was preparing Michelle to run against President Biden in 2024. Then the magazine claimed Michelle had put off her daughters’ friends. And earlier this year, the publication claimed Michelle was “at the end of her rope” and considering divorcing Barack. Obviously we are immediately skeptical about everything globe gotta say about the obama family.
