Kate Winslet's hubby might be a space star, but the rumors you're hearing of their honeymoon to space are just false!
Having just announced their secret wedding, she and Ned Rocknroll have fallen victim to a refreshed rumor that fits the honeymoon speculation of hopeless space romantics everywhere.
You see… a little after she rescued Richard Branson's mother during their house fire last year, reports began to circulate that the Virgin chairman gave her a thank-you gift in the form of a ticket to space.

Because we’re apparently too dumb to tell the difference.
Richard Branson, owner of Virgin Airlines, is suing a New York based jeans company I Am Not A Virgin over the naming rights for “Virgin.”
Branson claims that when people see "Virgin" on the clothing store, they will associate that with Virgin Airlines, but IANAV's Peter Heron thinks it's a bunch of rubbish.
