Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Top Goss! -

is­graced star Roseanne Barr has suf­fered an­other set­back fol­low­ing the can­cel­la­tion of her hit sit­com. m. US mag­a­zine Star re­ports her long-time love Johnny Ar­gent has re­buffed her mar­riage pro­posal.

In hot wa­ter over her racist tweets aimed at for­mer White House ad­viser Va­lerie Jarrett, the 65-year-old co­me­dian im­me­di­ately turned to Johnny. But even he’s dis­tanc­ing him­self from the ac­tress as the con­tro­versy con­tin­ues to sim­mer.

“Roseanne has gone so far as to pro­pose her­self on more than a few oc­ca­sions,” says a source. “But Johnny al­ways laughs it off and asks her why a pair of se­nior cit­i­zens would need to get mar­ried.”

It’s be­lieved the cou­ple – who met in 2002 when Johnny en­tered a writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion on Roseanne’s blog – are holed up on their Hawai­ian prop­erty, a pri­vate 5000-tree macadamia nut farm.

“Johnny is deeply con­cerned about Roseanne’s men­tal health,” a source tells Star. “Be­tween the Twit­ter scan­dal, the show’s can­cel­la­tion and the back­lash, he fears she could suf­fer a break­down.

“He’s do­ing every­thing he can to be a sup­port­ive shoul­der to cry on, but Johnny has no in­ten­tion of mar­ry­ing Roseanne – not now, not ever.”

“Johnny has no in­ten­tion of mar­ry­ing Roseanne,” says an in­sider.
