The wedding is OFF!

Sitcom star Neil Patrick Harris and his longtime partner David Burtka got engaged after the Marriage Equality Act was passed in New York in 2011, but sources tell The ENQUIRER that the gay couple abruptly called off their nuptials following a vicious lovers’ spat.

“They’re barely speaking, and as of now there’s no wedding in the immediate future,” revealed an insider.

The ENQUIRER has all the details of the nasty blow-up, which began when the “How I Met Your Mother” actor exploded over something David said.

The two were on their way to a TinselTown bash when the fireworks erupted, and they wound up not even going home together that night.

”They walked into the party mad at each other,” recalled the insider. “They both threw back a couple of whiskeys, and that only made things worse.”

If their relationship ends for good, the source predicts the two would face off in bitter custody battle over their 2-year-old twins, Gideon and Harper.

Meanwhile, David – an E! Network correspondent thanks to Emmy-winner Neil’s showbiz connections – is said to be shattered.

“Neil’s still mad and David is terrified he’s going to lose him,” confided the insider.
