Another day, another celebrity split-up. After 21 years of marriage, Steve Burton and Sheree Gustin have split up. While Sheree is pregnant with her fourth child, fans were shocked to learn of Burton's claim that he isn't the father.

On Wednesday, May 4, 2022, ‘General Hospital’ alum Steve Burton opened up about his separation from his wife via an Instagram story. It is understood that Burton's claim about fourth child not being his is the main reason behind the split. Burton said, “I wanted to clear something up. Sheree and I are separated.” The 51-year-old added, “She recently announced that she’s expecting her 4th child. The child is not mine.” He continued, “We are still co-parenting our three beautiful kids. We would appreciate privacy at this time. Much luv, Steve.” The couple has been married since 1999 and shares three children - Makena, 18, Jack, 16, and Brooklyn, 7.

Why is Burton not on 'General Hospital' anymore?

Burton has been a regular on the soap opera 'General Hospital' since 1991, playing Jason Morgan. But in 2021, the star was fired from the show after refusing the Covid-19 vaccine. He took to social media in November 2021 and said, “I know there’s been a lot of rumors and speculation about me and ‘General Hospital,’ and I wanted you to hear it from me personally,” he added, “Unfortunately, ‘General Hospital’ has let me go because of the vaccine mandate.” He continued, “I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions, and both of those were denied. Which, you know, hurts.” Burton then concluded by saying, “But this is also about personal freedom for me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this.”

What are fans saying?

People are mad at Burton for claiming the child isn't his. One person said on Twitter, "Steve Burton does not control his fans. Just like Kelly Monaco didn’t control hers when they were making death threats against Becky. If grown ass women are harassing a pregnant woman, then blame their mothers for not raising them right." Another person said, "Steve Burton former Jason in General Hospital posted on IG stories that him and his wife are separated and she’s pregnant with another man’s child. He knew damn well she’d get flooded w/ hate. Her posts are filled w/ slut shaming. Disgusting," while another wrote, "I do feel sorry for the baby Steve Burton abandoned because he says, "It's not my kid." How can a "Man of God" not have any love for an innocent child? You religious people are more screwed up than those of us devoid of lunacy.💔🤮"
