  • T.J. Holmes and Marilee Fiebig had been separated for months when news of his romance with Amy Robach broke
  • Fiebig was "blindsided" because they had been trying to "work things out," a report claims
  • Robach and husband Andrew Shue's divorce is nearly finalized, according to the report

T.J. Holmes and his wife Marilee Fiebig were working to reconcile their marriage when news of his romance with his "Good Morning America" co-anchor Amy Robach broke Wednesday, reports have claimed.

Photos surfaced this week of Holmes, 45, and Robach, 49, holding hands in a car during a vacation and cozying up at a bar in New York City. The images were from various outings in November, but the co-stars' friendship allegedly turned romantic in June, if not before, according to the Daily Mail, which first published the photos.

An unnamed insider told Page Six that Holmes' wife was "blindsided" by his alleged affair with Robach. The staffer claimed that Holmes and Fiebig had been separated for several months but were trying to "work things out" when reports of his alleged affair came out. International Business Times could not independently verify this information.

"She's devastated. She had no idea," the source told the outlet of Fiebig. "They haven't been together in [a while], but they were trying to work it out."

Holmes and the immigration lawyer "were just together for T.J.'s birthday" in August, the insider claimed.

Although Fiebig hasn't been wearing her wedding ring, she and her husband were attempting to reconcile, the source added.

Reps for Holmes and Fiebig did not respond to Page Six's requests for comment.

OK! Magazine also reported, citing an unnamed source, that Fiebig "had no idea" about Holmes and Robach's alleged relationship before the photos surfaced.

When the news broke, the journalist and his wife of 12 years, who share 8-year-old daughter Sabine, had been separated for six months, but they spent his Aug. 19 birthday together, signaling that they were trying to get back on track, according to the magazine.

Robach and Holmes, who have been working together on "GMA3: What You Need to Know" since fall 2020 and who are both still legally married, allegedly didn't hide their relationship at work.

"They had no shame going out together and have been publicly doing this for much longer than a month," an unnamed source told People. "Staffers are very surprised it took this long to come out. Everyone was turning a blind eye because they didn't want the controversy surrounding the show."

Another unnamed source claimed to People that Robach and Holmes did not begin dating until after they separated from their spouses and that there was no overlap between the co-anchors' romance and their respective marriages to Fiebig and Andrew Shue.

"This was two consenting adults who were each separated. They both broke up with their spouses in August within weeks of each other," the insider added. "The relationship didn't start until after that."

Page Six reported that Holmes, 45, and Robach, 49, allegedly have been romantically involved since as early as March. However, unnamed sources claimed to the outlet that Robach and Shue's divorce is nearly finalized.

"He moved out earlier this summer," one source claimed. "They've constantly had problems over the years, and they finally broke up."

Shue, 55, hasn't publicly spoken out about Robach and Holmes' relationship rumors, but he deleted all photos of her from Instagram after news of the co-anchors' alleged affair broke. Prior to his wife making headlines this week, the "Melrose Place" alum posted many sweet images of them together, including one of them kissing in Massachusetts in 2020, People reported.

In related news, Holmes allegedly had a three-year affair with married "Good Morning America" producer Natasha Singh that began in 2016 and happened before his romance with Robach, Page Six and the Daily Mail reported.

Singh had "no comment" on the affair allegations, according to Page Six.

Fiebig was reportedly so focused on her husband's alleged affair with Singh that she never thought something was going on between him and Robach, an unnamed insider told Page Six.

"Marilee never considered Amy because she was focused on Natasha. She never thought about [him cheating] with Amy because they were friends. Amy's daughter was their daughter's babysitter," the source claimed.
