Kate had a son before he met Phil on the set of the popular 'Mother In Law' show around 2012-2013. The couple had a daughter together in December 2019.
A blogger on Wednesday claimed Kate's son opted to stay with Phil after his mother went separate ways with Phil while she would stay with the daughter.
"This is rubbish!" Kate said in response to the claims posted on X.
Kate and Phil issued a joint statement on Tuesday saying they had amicably agreed to end their union, something Kate said was never a secret and thanked fans for their support.
"We came to a conclusion to end our marriage a long while ago and are separated. We sincerely request everyone to honour our wishes for privacy for us and our children," they said.
On Wednesday, however, a section of social media users suggested that the whole thing could have been staged for clout after Phil's business associate and best friend, Abel Mutua put up a cheeky post on Instagram.
Abel insinuated that he too had broken ranks with Phil, a BMW owner.
The scriptwriter who also goes by the name Mkurugenzi or Mkuru previously owned a Mercedes Benz and now drives a Range Rover.
"We have come to the conclusion that going our separate ways is best for both of us. This is due to our vehicular differences. Associating with a BMW owner has taken a toll on me and we wish that you please respect our decision. Signed Mkuru and Phil."
Both Kate and Phil laughed off the statement with laugh emojis.
