Did Criminal Minds Star Thomas Gibson Get Catfished?
Well, this is embarrassing.
Criminal Minds star Thomas Gibson was reportedly Catfished by a woman in North Dakota whom he met on the Internet, TMZ reports. And there's (an incredibly awkward) video to prove it.
According to TMZ, the woman reached out to Gibson on Twitter two years ago saying she was a big fan, and attached a scantily clad picture with the message. The woman tells TMZ she and Gibson carried on an online relationship for two years, exchanging racy photos and videos — but the material the woman was sending was lifted from porn sites.
Photos: Stars who overcame scandals
Gibson, on the other hand, came up with original material, including a video of himself in a hot tub (see below). The video was taped around Christmas last year, according to TMZ.
The woman tells TMZ that Gibson recently discovered her photos were fake, and that his lawyer got in touch with her a few months ago asking her to stop contacting him. She reportedly hasn't heard from him since.
Gibson and his wife, Christine, have three children together. An email to his rep was not immediately returned.
