This time last year, a tabloid claimed Mariska Hargitay would leave Law & Order: SVU .Although the point of sale stuck to an “anonymous source”, Gossip Cop investigated the rumor and found it to be completely fictitious, and time proved that the actress did not leave the series to success.
Twelve months ago, the National Enquirer published an article claiming that Hargitay was leaving his television show moving to Los Angeles and following a career in cinema. According to the tabloid’s unknown source, the actress felt like “she did everything she could” (19459009) SVU and that the film world would be “the next chapter of her life ”
The alleged insider would have even claimed that NBC would develop a “well-planned” plan of departure that would give Hargitay the opportunity to bid farewell to Inspector Olivia Benson. The actress was so invested in her role, the source said, that she was going through the same traumas as those experienced by the police, leading her to a “breaking point.”
The tabloid debate on Hargitay’s career has turned into a commentary on his personal life.The suspicious source said that Hargitay’s North American move to would affect her relationship with her husband and actor Peter Hermann, who is also shooting a television series in New York. “Only time will tell how it will affect their personal lives,” teased the source.
As we reported at the time, Hargitay stated that she hoped to stay with SVU as long as possible and that she was grateful to work on the series. However, Gossip Cop contacted the spokesperson for the actress, who assured us that she was going nowhere. In reality, the character of Hargitay was promoted to commander of the 16th district of the NYPD in the first game of season 21 – and the photo above represents the actress showing her necklace “21” at the premiere of the 21st season of the show.
