(UPI) -- Back in June the National Enquirer published details of a lawsuit in which Paula Deen admitted to making racist comments, a scandal that cost her multiple endorsement deals and her Food Network job. Now the tabloid is back on Deen's case with a story about her marriage.

The November 18 edition of the Enquirer reported that Deen's husband, Michael Groover, "walked out" on the 66-year-old celebrity cook when she confronted him about an alleged affair.

The Enquirer described Groover's mistress as a "sexy, middle-aged brunette."

But a source refuted the rumors in a statement to US Weekly.

"Paula and her husband Michael have never been closer and Michael adores her," the source said.
