Whitney Duncan will survive those nasty infidelity rumors!

Contrary to reports, the 27-year-old country singer and Survivor: South Pacific star wasn't committing adultery when she fell for Keith Tollefson on the show.

"Whitney and Keith did not expect to fall in love on the show but they did," a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. "She is divorced and never lied to her ex about falling for Keith. She told him the day she returned from Survivor. Whitney and her family have had a very trying year." 

"I think learning about her cousin being abducted the same day she found out she would be on Survivor gave her a new perspective on life and love and made her realize that life is too short to be unhappy," added the source. Duncan's 20-year-old cousin Holly Bobo was kidnapped in April and her whereabouts are still unknown.
