“She’s re-reviewing things and saying, ‘Hey, I’m still young. I still have stuff to do,’” they stated.

Another insider shared, “I don’t know how long they’ve been separated, but I know it’s been a while. They have to present a family front – even if it’s non-existent.”

“It’s a very smoke and mirrors type of situation. They are just so obsessed with public appearances. They are just image-conscious,” the tipster added.
