Did Neil Patrick Harris call off his wedding to his partner David Burtka?

Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka have been together for a while. I don’t even know how long (nearly a decade, I believe), but they’ve been together for longer than most Hollywood romances. They have two children together – twins Gideon and Harper – and they announced their plans to marry back in 2011. Since the wedding still hasn’t gone down yet, the tabloids keep recycling stories about NPH “calling off the wedding” because if there’s one thing the tabloids love, it’s wedding dramz! The Enquirer basically says that NPH canceled their wedding plans because they had one fight. OMG!

The wedding is OFF! Sitcom star Neil Patrick Harris and his longtime partner David Burtka got engaged after the Marriage Equality Act was passed in New York in 2011, but sources tell The ENQUIRER that the gay couple abruptly called off their nuptials following a vicious lovers’ spat.

“They’re barely speaking, and as of now there’s no wedding in the immediate future,” revealed an insider.

The ENQUIRER has all the details of the nasty blow-up, which began when the “How I Met Your Mother” actor exploded over something David said. The two were on their way to a TinselTown bash when the fireworks erupted, and they wound up not even going home together that night.

”They walked into the party mad at each other,” recalled the insider. “They both threw back a couple of whiskeys, and that only made things worse.”

If their relationship ends for good, the source predicts the two would face off in bitter custody battle over their 2-year-old twins, Gideon and Harper. Meanwhile, David – an E! Network correspondent thanks to Emmy-winner Neil’s showbiz connections – is said to be shattered.

“Neil’s still mad and David is terrified he’s going to lose him,” confided the insider.

Hollywood Life also notes that gossip columnist Rob Shuter tweeted yesterday: “BREAKING: Report saying Neil Patrick Harris and his longtime partner David Burtka have called off the wedding. I haven’t confirmed yet.” But Shuter might have just gotten that from the Enquirer for all we know. Or it could be on! I’ll admit it, I’m not into David Burtka. I think he seems like a trophy husband-type. So would I be upset if David and NPH were over? Actually, yes. Because I think they both love their babies and I would hate to see some kind of nasty custody dispute go down.

    They have such similar bones!

  2. lexy says:

    Not that they should be responsible for the image of same sex parents but it would be awesome if they stayed happy together and raised two amazing, well adjusted girls and could be used as an example to all those disgusting people who think kids must have a mother and a father.

  3. Britt says:

    Except that their children are one boy and one girl.

    I hope they stay together, I like them together.

  4. marie says:

    there’s a tweet or an email, some form of response anyway from NPH that they’re vacationing together right now and that there has never been a wedding date planned (Prop 8.) they seem fine..

  5. lucy2 says:

    I doubt this is true, they seem pretty solid. Maybe they had a fight, big whoop. Or maybe plans changed when Neil’s show got extended for another season and they want to wait until that’s done?

  6. Agnes says:

    hope they’re fine. they’re an adorable family. love nph.

  7. kay says:

    I hope this is true. I cannot stand David at all. No concrete reason other than I find him to be completely arrogant.

    • Bijlee says:

      Really? I’m the complete opposite. I can’t stand NPH. He’s gives me this vibe that he’s super smug and arrogant in real life. I don’t know why I just don’t like him. I may be projecting his dumb himym character onto him tho….I hate that show. Lol just yesterday I was saying how much I dislike Jason segel…so I guess I’m really biased. still really don’t like NPH.

  8. Skipper says:

    No custody battle, they can each just take a kid!

  9. GiGi says:

    Doesn’t David Burtka have older twins with an ex that he doesn’t see?

  10. fabgrrl says:

    Nooooooo!!!!! I love them together! They have the cutest little family. :^(

  11. Elo says:

    I have such a huge crush on NPH, so if they split and he decided he wants to switch teams for a bit…well I will be here patiently waiting.

  12. TQB says:

    David was an actor before he met NPH – why the snarky “he’s a correspondent because of NPH’s connections”? It’s showbiz, people. Half of Hollywood got famous because they dated someone famous once.

  13. RobN says:

    It always seems to me that David is way more into NPH than NPH is in to David. Throw in the money/fame aspect and all the power in this relationship is on one side. I’d guess David is more than aware of that and it’s why he always seems kind of desperate and clinging.

  14. Marianne says:

    Even if the wedding was off…it wouldnt necessarily mean they were off. One could just simply not be ready for it yet. Or be too busy or whatever.

  15. rosie says:

    Gay male couples often look alike because its the ultimate narcissistic self(love?) behavior they can engage in.
    Just some food for thought

  16. rosie says:

    Its gay narcissism at its finest.

  17. KellyinSeattle says:

    Neil Patrick Harris so very talented.

    If I remember correctly, this is now the 3rd time the Enquirer and this Shuter guy claim that NPH and his partner have relationship problems. And every time, they use the fact that they are not married yet to back up that story. So here’s a news flash: They CAN’T get married! They live in CA, where gay marriage is still illegal. I know they could have a “commitment ceremony” or whatever, but I actually remember NPH telling Howard Stern that they want to get married “for real” where they actually live, with all the proper legal stuff, and not just to have a fancy night-out, with no legal consequences or protection.

    Isn’t that anti-gay discrimination (for lack of a better term), if gossip magazines use the fact that a gay couple isn’t married as indicator that their relationship is off, when gay couples actually can’t get married in most places, even if they want to?

  19. ClaireNZ says:

    I refuse to believe this – LOVE them! I am totally hoping they are in it for the long haul

  20. lola says:

    Me too. I really like David Burtka, NPH not so much. NPH seems very self-centered and seems like he prioritizes there after. David Burtka seems to be a very hands down dad when it comes to their twins. He is the one who is raising them for most part and give priority to spend time on them. NPH seems to be the one who plays with them from time to time!

  21. Suze says:

    I thought they were married.

    Their kids are so young it would be a shame if they did part ways.
