However, there's no telling if the OP's status has been rescinded prior to now.
Yes, there is. He can simply check it online. If it shows up, then it is still valid. Actually, that's what he should do right now.
The rejection letter for his spouse clearly states that OP has no status here.
Not at all. The letter says that he is not a relevant EEA citizen. It does not say that he has no status. Big difference. Applications are independent, the fact that they confirm a sponsor is not eligible to status does not trigger a cancellation of that sponsor's status. That's not how it works.
This is counter intuitive and you could argue that one statement necessarily means the other, but remember, the OP is here by an error, which creates a singularity. And in a singularity, you cannot apply the reasoning of a normal situation. It's like trying to apply Earth's gravitational rules to the Moon. It does not work.
The difference of having status vs being eligible for status is very important here, and I'm afraid it took some time for the OP to see it. He has been in denial, and he has been trying to justify his wife being eligible to pre-settled status because he has status, even though it is by now crystal clear that he is not, and has never been, eligible to it himself.
My posts express what I believe are the facts, based on the best of my knowledge, about the topics discussed in this forum. They do not constitute immigration advice.
