She was caught locking lips with former "Smash" director Michael Morris, and now Katharine McPhee has admitted the deed was caught on camera without her even knowing about it.

According to NY Post, the former "American Idol" star was "blindsided" by the pictures that surfaced earlier this week.

"She is SO embarrassed she was caught," a source close to Miss McPhee declared to Us Weekly. "She should have known better!"

After the news broke out about the affair, another insider informed Us Weekly that she and her husband Nick Cokas have been separated for at least six months and she "has had friends living with her for months."

Although Katharine did not know about the photos, Michael did. Before the photos were released, he told his wife Mary McCormack while attempting to buy the snapshots to avoid the sudden scandal.
