It seems that Jane Krakowski‘s “secret romance” with MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is over before it even began as the romantically linked pair have actually never met one another.
On Thursday, the Daily Mail reported that the Trump-loyalist businessman and the actress had a passionate summer fling that “came to an end after a weekend together at the actress’s rented Hamptons beach house.” A source told the outlet that their relationship was an “open secret” in NYC’s West Village and “It surprised many of Jane’s friends because she’s such an icon in the gay community, but here she is dating one of Trump’s biggest business backers. I mean he was seen in the West Wing and at Trump rallies and he is probably responsible for half of the revenue of Fox News. We’d always joke that Jane had so much money, couldn’t she afford her own MyPillow?”
A second source added that Lindell would allegedly shower the 30 Rock star in gifts. “He sent flowers to her almost every week and champagne and bottles of different liquor,” they said. “She said she had known him for about eight years and that they had been friends but then they started a relationship about a year ago. I don’t know exactly what she saw in him but she seemed happy and thought he was a good man.”
However, if this bipartisan relationship seems too good to be true, that’s because it is. A representative for Krakowski told Vanity Fair, “Jane has never met Mr. Lindell. She is not and has never been in any relationship with him, romantic or otherwise. She is, however, in full-fledged fantasy relationships with Brad Pitt, Regé-Jean Page, and Kermit the Frog and welcomes any and all coverage on those.” As for Lindell, he told the Daily Mail, “I have never even heard of Jane Krakowski???”
