Actress Mary McCormack has been spotted in public with her husband Michael Morris for the first time since his kissing scandal broke.

The couple's marriage was thrown into question after the Smash director was caught on camera kissing the show's star Katherine MCPhee in Los Angeles earlier this month (Oct13).

Reports suggested MCCormack had kicked Morris out of the family home they share with their three kids, but now they have been seen out together in L.A.

The pair looked strained as they made their way to their car, keeping their distance from one another and covering their eyes with sunglasses.

They are yet to comment on the headline-grabbing incident. MCPhee is believed to have quietly split from her husband of five years, actor/producer Nick Cokas, earlier this year (13).
