I don’t know if this actually happened but when Katharine McPhee’s great-grandfather walked her down the aisle and saw who was waiting to take her hand, he said “David? Is that you? I thought you perished on Iwo Jima with the rest of E Company!”. Like I said, I don’t know if that actually happened when 35-year-old Katharine married 69-year-old David Foster, but you’ll forgive me for imagining such a scenario based on how often and loudly Katharine defends her right to love her peepaw-aged man.
According to Page Six, she even made a revolutionary battle cry out of their age difference while performing on an LGTBQ+ cruise by telling anyone who doesn’t like it to go fuck themselves.
Katharine, who is much cheaper than Celine Dion (not that she needs the money!), donned a white pantsuit and rose up out of the floor to sing My Heart Will Go On aboard the cruise headed to Provincetown. But the real drama happened when David joined her on stage.
McPhee performed on an LGBTQ cruise to Provincetown, Mass., and Foster joined her onstage. “I don’t know if you noticed or not, but there’s a bit of an age difference between the two of us,” he told the crowd. “But on this cruise, nobody gives a shit.”
The comment was such a hit with the audience that Foster repeated it the following night. “He did the same thing during her second show, except she added a ‘Go fuck yourself to go along with his ‘Nobody gives a shit’ comment,” a source said.
Oh, she must be channeling her inner Olivia Jade! Say what you will about their age difference being an issue (but if you do, don’t forget Katharine’s directive), but one thing’s for sure; a couple that panders together, stays together! Even if she’s the one who gets stuck changing diapers in the not-so-distant future (I’m talking about their eventual baby’s, okay!), they’ll always be a united front when it comes to reminding you how much older he is and then telling the world to suck it. I guess when you’re as rich and comfortable as the Foster-McPhees (my favorite place for soft-serve, btw), you’ve got to invent your own drama.
