There are serious concerns for the marriage of Melissa McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone after they were both seen without their wedding rings on their fingers.

It is fuelling speculation that all is not well with the couple, especially as they have not been seen together since August.

US publication National Enquirer speculates Ben’s close friendship with his Office Christmas Party co-star Jennifer Aniston could be partly to blame for the possible relationship breakdown.  

‘They were very close on set in October,’ a source says. ‘Jen thought he was the funniest guy around, which boosted his ego.’

There is no suggestion that the duo are anything but friends, but it is believed the couple’s chemistry has bothered Melissa.

Rumours of marriage troubles first surfaced last year, which was denied by the couples’ rep. But now, as Melissa and Ben team up for a new project Life of the Party, friends are concerned their relationship may not cope under pressure.
