Is Bruce Springsteen having an affair? Page Six seems to think so, alleging that the singer and his wife Patti Scialfa are living separate lives. Springteen, the Post tells us, "is born to run - from marriage."

We're gonna save the folks over at Page Six a little research time in case this story has legs. Bruce is having a rough ride through that tunnel of love. He may have given Patti a reason to believe, but it's hard to be a saint in the city. It's the price you pay when there's darkness on the edge of town. Whether they're together in their mansion on the hill or living worlds apart, we're sure that, when the lights go out, they're both hoping, "We shall overcome." At least let them make it to Christmas; Santa Claus is coming to town.

Meanwhile, Bruce's rumored paramour is a 9/11 widow that he met at a benefit. Everyone we know wants to be a rock star; who knew rock stars wanted to be firemen?
