“20/20″ anchor Elizabeth Vargas hasn’t had the easiest year. First she openly admitted she is an alcoholic, and now rumors are circling that her husband Marc Cohn had an affair while she was in rehab.
The rumor was first reported by Page Six, who says Cohn was involved with their mutual friend Ruth Zukerman, a Flywheel instructor. Representatives for Vargas, ABC News and Flywheel did not have comments, but Cohn issued his own response via a spokesperson to Daily Mail.
“I have no comment regarding vicious rumors about a so-called ‘affair,'” the statement reportedly says. “I have encouraged and supported Elizabeth’s recovery as her years of struggle have been hard on everyone. Out of deference to my family’s privacy, I will not comment further.”
Cohn is a Grammy-winning folk singer. He and Vargas have been married for 12 years and are parents to two children: Zachary Raphael, 11, and Samuel Wyatt, 7.
