Don’t expect to see Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes back on the air.

A source tells ET that Robach and Holmes are still a part of ABC but have hired lawyers “because there is an ongoing investigation and that’s what you do when that happens.”

“There is still a chance they will not return to GMA3… The longer this process takes, the more likely they won’t return to (their respective positions). Whether they return to other positions at the network remains to be seen,” the source tells ET.

On Thursday, TMZ reported that the “GMA3” co-hosts have hired top lawyers if it comes to litigation. TMZ was told that in their negotiations with ABC, the couple’s lawyers will pose the question, “Has ABC ever used the morals or conduct clause to fire or discipline 2 consenting adults at equal levels when both were white?”

It has also been suggested that race could become a factor, given that in this case the morals clause was invoked over a relationship between white and Black anchors.

When Robach and Holmes were taken off the air last month, ABC president Kim Godwin stated that, though the affair was “not a violation of company policy,” it was still considered too much of a “distraction” for viewers tuning in.

“After a lot of thought, I am taking Amy and T.J. off the air as we figure this out,” Godwin said.

After news of the relationship between Robach and Holmes broke, it was also reported that Holmes had engaged in affairs with multiple others at the network.

Last month, Holmes filed for divorce from his wife, Marilee Fiebig.
