Truth About Jennifer Aniston Coming Between Katy Perry And Orlando Bloom

Perry’s spokesperson also dismissed the story, calling it “rubbish.” The phony scenario was just another example of how little the gossip media knows about the three stars. Gossip Cop checked with Aniston’s rep, who told us that the story was nonsense. A week before the Bloom story, the blog also claimed Aniston was trying to convince ex-husband Brad Pitt to be her “baby daddy.” Instead of being “on the prowl” for Bloom and other men, Aniston was instead spending time with friends and focusing on her career. “It won’t go down well with Katy, so don’t be surprised if this gets messy.”

Gossip Cop ran the rumor by Aniston’s spokesperson, who told us that it was “more nonsense” from the site that had previously (and still incorrectly) linked Aniston with Gerard Butler the month before. There’s no evidence that Bloom and Aniston ever had an “affair” or anything similar. In July, Life & Style published a phony article about Perry waring Aniston to “stay away” from Bloom. The two are simply friends and colleagues that share a manager. The outlet used some familiar language when it described Perry as being “worried” that Bloom and Aniston were “more than friends.” The magazine further contended that the singer found text messages from Aniston on her fiancé’s phone.

“Jennifer Aniston, Katy Perry NOT In ‘Fight’ Over Orlando Bloom, Despite Claim.” Gossip Cop, 14 March 2018. In March 2018, Gossip Cop busted RadarOnline falsely claiming Aniston was preparing to fight Perry over Bloom. Citing a totally anonymous source, the site alleged the actress was “on the prowl” for men after her then-recent separation from Justin Theroux. “Katy wishes Jen would back off,” said an unnamed insider. “Jennifer Aniston Warned By Katy Perry To ‘Stay Away’ From Orlando Bloom?” Gossip Cop, 20 July 2019. 2019.

Jennifer Aniston has never come between Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom in any way, but there have been many ridiculous stories about the actress negatively impacting the couple’s romance. “They had an affair many years ago, even though it was something they tried to deny,” an anonymous source told the publication, “and the spark’s never gone out between them.” Bloom, the tipster alleged, has “been in love with Jen since Friends.”
The Enquirer was entirely wrong. Here are just a few wrong rumors we’ve corrected. This past January, the National Enquirer wrongly alleged Aniston and Bloom were having a “secret emotional affair.” The tabloid said Bloom had remained physically loyal to Perry, but he was still “more than friends” with Aniston. “Jennifer Aniston, Orlando Bloom Having Secret Affair?” Gossip Cop, 25 Jan. Gossip Cop has debunked many different takes on the subject. Once again, the supposed love triangle between the three was a total work of fiction. Bloom even attended Aniston’s wedding in 2015. “Jen’s very open about wanting to hit the dating scene and Orlando’s at the top of her list of crushes,” a supposed insider told the outlet. Shuster, Andrew. The article never explained how Perry found the texts or what these secret messages said.

Miley Cyrus And Kaitlynn Carter Buying ‘Love Nest’?

Matis, Griffin. Shuster, Andrew. We called out NW earlier this month for a phony rumor about Cyrus and Carter planning to wed in a wild Las Vegas ceremony. However, they’re perfectly happy in their current situation, and there’s no evidence to suggest they’re already house-hunting. The singer and the reality star have been spending a lot of time together in recent weeks and have been displaying a fair amount of PDA, and Cyrus and Carter are reportedly staying together, according to People magazine. “They want to spend around $8 million and have been looking in Malibu and Hidden Hills.”

The outlet further contends that Cyrus and Carter have been living at the reality star’s pad in West Hollywood, but they’re looking to expand their space. Matis, Griffin. “Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth Got Married For Tax Purposes After Malibu Home Burned Down?” Gossip Cop, 11 Jan 2019. “They need a place where they can start fresh, with a lot of space for all of Miley’s animals.”
Gossip Cop reached out to one of our sources in Cyrus’ camp, who assures us the story isn’t true. This is just another case of the gossip media trying to come up with a new angle about Cyrus and Carter’s relationship on account of it being one of the hottest topics in celebrity news right now.

Are Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter looking for a “love nest” to buy together? It was a similar case when Star, a sister publication of Life & Style, falsely claimed Cyrus and Hemsworth wed just to take advantage of tax and insurance laws after their Malibu home burned down. The outlet never specified what exact loopholes or laws the couple was using to their advantage. That’s the latest story about the couple in one of the tabloids. “Miley Cyrus, Kaitlynn Carter Planning To Wed?” Gossip Cop, 3 Sep. Gossip Cop can confirm it’s untrue. “Miley and Kaitlynn are searching for a love nest,” a suspicious source tells the magazine. 2019. The gossip media is clearly just making up assumptions about the current state of Cyrus’ newest relationship, without any genuine insight into it.

Kate Hudson Begging Jennifer Lopez To Help Her Make Peace With Owen Wilson?

“Kate Hudson ‘Dumped’ By Baby Daddy Danny Fujikawa?” Gossip Cop, 10 June 2019. As time has proven, the couple is still very much together. We would also have to agree with Wilson’s late pal: it’s highly irresponsible to suggest that Hudson is to blame for her ex-boyfriend trying to harm himself. The supposed source say Lopez is happy to help Hudson clear the air with Wilson, adding, “Jen and Owen are starring in a new movie together, so it’s the perfect opportunity for her to help them put the past to rest.”
Actually, it’s the Enquirer that won’t “put the past to rest,” as the magazine is dredging up a tragic situation that occurred more than decade ago. “Owen Wilson: What Happened?” People, 10 Sep. (Getty Images)
Is Kate Hudson begging Jennifer Lopez to help her make peace with ex-boyfriend Owen Wilson? The Wedding Crashers star attempted suicide in 2007 while he and Hudson were on a break, prompting an alleged “source” to tell the magazine, “She knows people still blame her for his suicide attempt, and she’s desperate to make peace. And he hasn’t ever wanted to speak to her!”

This assertion is simply wrong. and Meadows, Bob. 2018. In a 2007 People magazine cover story about Wilson’s suicide attempt, the actor’s longtime friend Polly Platt said “it would be irresponsible” to blame “any single thing” on what led to his troubles. “Kate Hudson Having Twins?” Gossip Cop, 18 Apr. Gossip Cop checked in with sources close to the situation, and we’re assured the tabloid’s article is completely false. Platt, who passed away in 2011, added, “He has demons; on some level, he’s managed them for years.” Additionally, Hudson and Wilson briefly rekindled their romance following his suicide attempt, so the idea that she was the driving force behind it simply isn’t true or remotely fair to say. Hudson and Wilson had an on-again, off-again romance from 2006 to 2008, and according to the National Enquirer, the actress is eager to apologize to her ex for how their relationship ended. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we’ve learned it’s made-up. That’s the phony storyline featured in one of this week’s tabloids. 2007. Lopez, who’s friendly with Hudson, is set to co-star with Wilson in the upcoming romantic comedy Marry Me, which seems to be the reason why the singer is being dragged into the narrative.

Truth About Jennifer Lopez Delaying Wedding To Alex Rodriguez

In August, the Enquirer made up a story about Lopez being “too busy” to marry Rodriguez, claiming she was purposely taking on new projects to push back the wedding, causing friction in their relationship. Here are a few times Gossip Cop has called out the tabloids in recent months about Lopez allegedly delaying her wedding. The absurd story was created simply because Lopez was spotted lifting weights with Rodriguez.

Katie Holmes Gets ‘Revenge Makeover’ After Jamie Foxx Split?

“Katie Holmes Spending Thousands On Makeover To Impress Jamie Foxx?” Gossip Cop, 26 July 2018. An article in the most recent issue of Life & Style says Holmes has totally revamped her personal style following her recent breakup with Foxx. In March, we called out the magazine for making up story about Holmes getting a $50,000 makeover following a so-called “split” with Foxx. And it came on the heels of years of having her whole life dictated by Tom Cruise.” However, the tabloid’s “relationship expert” isn’t a licensed therapist and has never spoken to Holmes about her personal life or her self-esteem. The subtitle of the story even says the actress “dumps the frump after ditching Foxx.” According to unnamed sources, the actress gave herself a “red-hot mamma makeover” in a “desperate effort to boost her sagging self-esteem.”

A supposed source tells the outlet, “She’s showing everybody she is an independent and very sexy woman.” The unnamed insider further alleges that Holmes is “putting herself out there like she never has before” now that she’s newly single. The actress’s “revenge makeover” is no more realistic. “Katie Holmes Got $50,000 Makeover Because Of Jamie Foxx?” Gossip Cop, 28 Mar. Gossip Cop ran the report by Holmes’ spokesperson, who went on the record to dismiss the story as “crazy.” The actress’s rep, who’s qualified to speak on her behalf, also points out that the actress “has always been fashionable” and has her own fashion line that she started with stylist Jeanna Yang. That’s the latest a tabloid is saying about the actress. It should also be mentioned, Life & Style came up with variations of this “makeover” scenario when Holmes and Foxx were still dating. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. In addition to there being no makeover, the two stars were still together at the time that article was published. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Holmes was spending thousands on a makeover in the hopes of impressing the actor.

Justin Bieber Taking Dancing Lessons Before Wedding To Hailey Baldwin?

Fans and the tabloids have speculated that the two will have an elaborate, more publicly visible ceremony in the future, although no plans have been confirmed by either one of them. 2018. “Hailey Baldwin Did NOT Call ‘Divorce Lawyers’ Months After Marrying Justin Bieber, Despite Report.” Gossip Cop, 19 March 2019. Two months later, the Mirror reported that Baldwin called divorce lawyers months after marrying Bieber supposedly because he “keeps going AWOL on her and saying he needs space,” and she “doesn’t understand why they can’t just enjoy their life together.” Once again, Gossip Cop debunked this completely fabricated story. To the fan account’s credit, they recognized their error after Baldwin corrected them. An Instagram fan account dedicated to Bieber and Baldwin’s relationship posted a photo of Bieber at 3rd Street Dance in Los Angeles. After all, we don’t think someone who rose to fame partially due to their dancing skills would need dancing lessons for their wedding. Hailey Baldwin Justin Bieber

“Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin Headed For Divorce?” Gossip Cop, 18 Nov. Just two months after their courthouse marriage, Life & Style falsely claimed Bieber and Baldwin were “headed back before a judge, this time to get a divorce.” The tabloid quoted a questionable source who stated plainly, “Both realize they might have made a huge mistake,” and that the two “should’ve waited until they were older.” Gossip Cop busted the story and time has shown our reporting to be accurate. They amended the caption to include Baldwin’s denial, which is far more than we can say for any tabloid, which have done a far worse jobs handling their Bieber-Baldwin mistakes. Bieber and Baldwin are technically already married, having received a marriage license last September, but they’ve yet to have a formal religious ceremony or big party. (Getty Images)
A Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin fan account mistakenly claimed that the pop star was getting dance lessons in anticipation of their upcoming wedding. The account included a caption on the image, saying that the singer was walking into “this dance studio that [specializes] especially in ballroom dancing and apparently he went there for wedding dance lessons.” According to the dance studio’s website, however, it actually specializes in a variety of dancing styles, but the fan account most likely saw the poster advertising ballroom dancing on the side of the building and assumed that’s what Bieber went there for. The ballroom speculation came crashing down, however, when Baldwin herself commented on the post. Even Baldwin herself finally took to social media and posted “don’t believe what ya read on the internet folks.” Unless, of course, you read it here at Gossip Cop. The model herself confirms that her husband wasn’t taking dance lessons for their nuptials. The tabloids weren’t done predicting a split though. “Not what it’s for.” This most likely means Bieber was simply using the studio space to practice for a music video or future performance.

The tabloids often publish false stories about Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton breaking up, with many of these reports involving the country star “dumping” his girlfriend. There were no signs that he was unhappy, so she’s racking her brain, looking for any and all clues.” That wasn’t the case. Gossip Cop has debunked many takes on the subject. Stefani’s spokesperson confirmed with Gossip Cop that the story wasn’t true and time has proven as much. The tabloid doubled down on the story, this time, again citing an unnamed “tipster,” who claimed that Shelton had grown “tired of dealing with their many problems.” The “source” further asserted that the No Doubt singer was “heartbroken.” She couldn’t have been too “heartbroken” considering that the couple is still together, a year and a half later. Nothing about the report was true, as we confirmed at the time with Stefani’s rep.

Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie In ‘Forbidden Romance’?

2018. It’s hard to believe “everyone on set” was talking about their chemistry when they barely worked together. One report that Gossip Cop debunked said the ex-spouses had been on several dates after reuniting at her 50th birthday party in February. 2019. For starters, Pitt and Robbie share hardly any scenes together in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, meaning they weren’t on set together all that much. The tabloid’s article is a complete work of fiction. Additionally, the magazine’s premise is coming from an untraceable “source,” but Pitt’s own spokesperson is going on the record to refute it. Robbie is happily married to producer Tom Ackerley, which is why Pitt supposedly “knew he couldn’t tell Margot directly… but that’s not to say she hasn’t picked up on the signals.” The growing bond between the co-stars has caused problems in the actress’s marriage, according to the suspicious source, who claims Ackerley “saw Brad as a threat from the get-go.” The seemingly imaginary insider concludes that Pitt might end up in another “messy love triangle,” as he did when he left Jennifer Aniston for Jolie. “She’s the complete opposite of his ex – fun, carefree, witty and accepts him for who he is.”

The alleged insider further contends that “everyone on set was talking” about the chemistry between Pitt and Robbie, “especially when they’d disappear off together and hang out in their trailers.” The anonymous tipster also maintains that the two stars would “secretly text” throughout the shoot.

The anonymous insider adds, “She’s not much for going out, and the thought of a blind date terrifies her.

Liam Hemsworth Fed Up With Miley Cyrus’ Public Outbursts?

“Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth Fought At Malibu Party Over Her ‘Obnoxious Antics’?” Gossip Cop, 22 June 2019. That’s even more evident now that they’ve become husband and wife. Shuster, Andrew. The couple, who tied the knot last December, has been together for the better part of a decade. In fact, when Cyrus posted a message on Instagram in honor of her husband’s birthday back in March, she made a point of noting, “I love how you let ME be Me.” Meanwhile, variations of this phony narrative have cropped up countless times, and sources close to the spouses have repeatedly assured us it’s a non-issue. “Liam Hemsworth Angry With Miley Cyrus For Acting Wild At Met Gala?” Gossip Cop, 15 May 2019. That’s simply never been the case, and this latest take on the subject is more nonsense. And a month ago, Gossip Cop called out the magazine’s other sister publication, Life & Style, for falsely claiming Cyrus and Hemsworth got into a fight at a party in Malibu over her “obnoxious antics.” Shortly before that, we debunked an In Touch story alleging Hemsworth got angry with Cyrus for acting wild at the Met Gala. “He doesn’t like being around her when she’s like that.”

In reality, Hemsworth isn’t shocked by any of his wife’s on-stage antics, nor has he told her to dial it down. The story is entirely fabricated.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are not headed for a split following a “tense” trip to Australia earlier this month, despite a false report.

Truth About Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry Being At “War” Over Prenup

And while the magazine couldn’t name one pal who expressed concern, a slew of their real friends, including Kate Hudson, Gywneth Paltrow, and Gwen Stefani, publicly congratulated them on social media after they got engaged. Not only is the outlet’s premise wrong, but it’s also not very original. Katy Perry Orlando Bloom Star Magazine

Alan Nierob, spokesperson for Katy Perry, 17 July 2019. According to Star, there’s only “one thing standing in the way” of Bloom and Perry becoming husband and wife and that’s “money.” To back up its narrative, the tabloid quotes what it calls a “tattletale” as saying, “Katy and Orlando are on different financial levels, so their teams are battling over their fortunes.” The unnamed source notes that’s making their prenup “complicated.”

The anonymous tipster goes on to contended the fighting is not personal nor over “who makes more.” Simply, asserts the publication, Perry is “richer by a significant amount” than her movie star fiance because of her music and work on “American Idol” and other projects. (Getty Images)
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are not at “war” over the details of their prenuptial agreement before they get married, despite a new report. It was untrue then, and it’s still false. 2019. Weeks after they got engaged, the outlet tried a similar narrative, alleging Perry and Bloom were going to split because she’s richer and more famous. Although the singer’s bank account does exceed the Lord Of The Rings star’s net worth by hundreds of millions of dollars, and both have been married and divorced before, talk of a prenup putting them at “war” is completely false. Eight months ago, and well before he even popped the question, Gossip Cop busted the magazine’s sister publication, Life & Style, when it ran a story that also inaccurately insisted Perry and Bloom were battling over a prenup. The tabloid actually furnishes no proof whatsoever for it claim, and it’s whole tale is based on the remarks of an unidentifiable and unaccountable “source.” Conversely, a rep for Perry specifically went on the record with Gossip Cop to call the outlet’s story “rubbish.”
It seems Star needs to find better sources when it comes to the celebrity couple. Gossip Cop can set the record straight. Of course that article didn’t even make sense because if those were real issues, Bloom wouldn’t have proposed and Perry wouldn’t have said “yes.”
And just days before that phony report, the same tabloid published another absurd story about how Perry’s friends feared her engagement to Bloom would end over his partying. Shuster, Andrew. The supposed source says, “Katy doesn’t want to make a big deal out of it,” but she’s being advised by her team to “play it safe.”
The outlet further maintains that while Bloom is “acting cool,” inside he’s “growing agitated with the entire ordeal.” “Orlando doesn’t blame Katy, but he’s starting to feel their marriage is more like a business arrangement,” alleges the magazine’s “snitch.” “It’s putting a damper on everything,” concludes the source. “Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom Headed For Split Because She’s More Rich And Famous?” Gossip Cop, 16 Mar.

Ellen DeGeneres, Portia De Rossi ‘Torn Apart’ By Jealousy?

In May, the talk show host renewed her contract for three more years. 2019. In January, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for wrongly reporting that DeGeneres was quitting her talk show to have kids with de Rossi. The alleged insider further contends that DeGeneres has been “acting jealous and incredibly demanding” to the point where it’s tearing apart the spouses of nearly 11 years. The spouses, who are avid real estate investors, didn’t purchase the property as a separate “escape pad,” as the magazine put it.

None of this is remotely accurate. (Getty Images)
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are not being “torn apart by jealousy,” nor are they headed for a split, despite a completely untrue tabloid report. Life & Style has already proven to have little insight into the couple’s marriage. “Portia’s been pouring her heart and soul into this company, and this is the first time she’s been consumed by something that has nothing to do with Ellen or Ellen’s career,” a supposed source tells the outlet. 2018. “They’re barely on speaking terms at this point,” adds the questionable tipster, “and are pretty much leading separate lives.”

The suspicious tipster also maintains that de Rossi’s busy work schedule and DeGeneres’ “overbearing behavior” has led to brutal fights between the pair. Last October, Gossip Cop busted the publication for falsely claiming DeGeneres and de Rossi were living apart to save their marriage. “There have been times when Portia has asked Ellen to leave their house so she can have some space,” asserts the “source,” adding that friends of the couple believe a divorce is on the horizon.

Reese Witherspoon Ditching Jennifer Aniston For Kerry Washington?

Back in March, Gossip Cop busted Star’s sister publication, Life & Style, for falsely claiming Aniston and Witherspoon were feuding on the set of “The Morning Show.”
Prior to that, Gossip Cop called out the magazine’s other sister outlet, OK!, for wrongly reporting that Aniston and Witherspoon were battling over equal pay for their TV series. 2017. 10 Jul. Stephen Huvane, Spokesperson for Jennifer Aniston. 2019. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time a tabloid has attempted to create nonexistent tension between the longtime friends. “Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon Feuding On Set Of TV Series?” Gossip Cop, 28 Mar. That notion is simply absurd. (Getty Images)
Reese Witherspoon has not ditched Jennifer Aniston to become closer friends with Kerry Washington, despite a made-up tabloid report. According to Star, Aniston and Witherspoon have grown apart since working together on their upcoming Apple series, “The Morning Show.” An alleged insider tells the magazine that Witherspoon is instead buddying up to Washington, her co-star and co-producer on the upcoming Hulu series “Little Fires Everywhere.”

“Reese and Kerry have so much in common – they’re both these type-A, supermom personalities juggling 25 things at once,” says the supposed source, adding that Witherspoon and Aniston “have always been pals, but in working together it became clear that they really had nothing in common.” The suspicious tipster continues, “All Jen brings to the table is yoga and weekend getaways, and Reese is so over it.”
The seemingly phony insider further contends that Witherspoon feels she can’t talk to Aniston about navigating Hollywood as a mom, whereas Washington – who has two young children – “totally gets it.” The questionable source goes on to say that Witherspoon has been phasing Aniston out of her circle, but “Jen only recently realized she’s been cut out, and she’s furious.” The anonymous tipster concludes, “It’s not her fault she doesn’t have the ‘mom experience’ you apparently need to be friends with Reese.”
The outlet’s premise is coming from an untraceable and possibly imaginary “insider,” but Gossip Cop reached out to Aniston’s spokesperson, who tells us on the record that it’s “absolutely false.” The “Friends” star’s rep, who’s qualified to speak on her behalf, assures us she and Witherspoon “are great friends” and have been close for nearly two decades.

Charlize Theron Dating Rumors

“Brad Pitt Dumped By Charlize Theron For ‘Two-Timing’ Her With Jennifer Aniston?” Gossip Cop, 4 Mar. 2019.
“Charlize Theron: ‘Dating feels more like work than fun!’” MSN. 23 May 2018. 2018. “Charlize Theron, Alexander Skarsgard Settling Down And Starting Family?” Gossip Cop, 4 Jul. Stephen Huvane, spokesperson for Jennifer Aniston. Shuster, Andrew.
2019. The outlet maintained that the two stars hit it off after crossing paths at the Whitby Hotel in New York City, where they were both staying. Shuster, Andrew. And in the midst of all the tabloid stories claiming she was dating Pitt, Theron herself confirmed she was “single” during an interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
And finally, Gossip Cop busted Life & Style last year for wrongly contending Theron was ready to settle down and start a family with Alexander Skarsgard, who co-starred in Long Shot. Shortly before the bogus article emerged, Theron said in an interview with “Extra” that she’s not looking for love at the moment. Every aspect of the narrative was fabricated. The magazine claimed “The Daily Show” host asked out the actress when she appeared on his show to promote her new movie Long Shot. Earlier this year, there were a whole slew of articles linking the actress to Brad Pitt, despite his rep repeatedly refuting the dating rumors. “Seal Opens Up On His Rumored Romance With Charlize Theron.” YouTube, 14 May 2019. One of the more ridiculous takes on the subject came from the Globe, which said in March that Theron had dumped Pitt for “two-timing” her with Jennifer Aniston. Shortly before the report was published, Theron revealed in an interview that she was single and had no interest in dating at the moment. The two had starred together in 2000’s Reindeer Games, and according to the outlet, the actor’s pals thought she was a good catch because she’s “a great mom, and not to mention drop-dead gorgeous.” Affleck’s spokesperson told us on the record that the article was made-up. Separate spokespeople for the stars involved in the report assured Gossip Cop it was complete nonsense. In May, Gossip Cop busted Life & Style for wrongly reporting that Theron was going on a date with Trevor Noah. Seal wasn’t even aware of the story, but when a photographer explained the tabloids were “trying to put you guys together,” the musician responded “Oh, no… There’s nothing to that.”
In April, Gossip Cop shot down a Life & Style report claiming Ben Affleck’s friends were trying to set him up with Theron. The actress told Hello magazine how dating “feels like more work than something I would really enjoy,” adding, “I think I’ll have to change that mindset before I start dating again.”

Charlize Theron’s dating life has been the subject of many false tabloid stories as of late. Theron and Pitt were never together, nor had the actor ever rekindled a romance with his ex-wife. Despite what the magazine’s anonymous “source” said, a rep qualified to speak on the actor’s behalf assured us his friends weren’t playing matchmaker for him. The primary problem with the premise was that the two stars were never an item. The actress explained, “I’m gonna finish this press tour [for Long Shot] then I’m gonna shoot a movie in London, and I’m figuring like around September we’ll talk about this.”

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are not planning the “wedding of the year” at his Oklahoma ranch, despite a fabricated tabloid report.

The previously mentioned articles aren’t even all of the “Oklahoma ranch” weddings created by the tabloids, but Gossip Cop imagines you get the point. Two months later, In Touch wrongly reported Stefani was both pregnant and marrying her boyfriend in Oklahoma. In February, Gossip Cop called out the National Enquirer for making up a story about Stefani and Shelton having a wedding celebration at his Oklahoma ranch after first exchanging vows at her home in Los Angeles.

There are two possibilities here: either the couple has been secretly getting married at Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch every few months (and occasionally having a baby), or this ongoing saga is fictional.

Nicole Kidman is not “keeping tabs” on Keith Urban, despite a false report claiming the actress doesn’t trust her husband. 2019. She just thinks of it as protecting her marriage.” The tabloid’s premise, which is coming from an anonymous tipster, is flat-out absurd. The country star wasn’t “dragged” to the event, nor are there any trust issues between the spouses of nearly 13 years. Of course, no such incident ever went down. 12 Jun. Unfortunately, we’re not surprised Life & Style is attempting to create nonexistent drama in the couple’s marriage. Urban accompanied his wife to the Season 2 premiere of “Big Little Lies” in New York City last month, but according to Life & Style, the actress “dragged” him there because she doesn’t like leaving him alone. Urban attended the Season 2 premiere of “Big Little Lies” to support his wife. “Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban ‘Biggest Fight Ever’ Made Up By Tabloid.” Gossip Cop, 2 Jun. Shuster, Andrew.

Gossip Cop checked in with Kidman’s rep, who tells us on the record that the publication’s story is total nonsense. 2018. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Urban “walked out” on Kidman and was living in a hotel as they prepared to divorce. An alleged insider tells the magazine that Kidman has “grown wary of her husband’s wandering eye,” adding, “Nicole makes no excuses about keeping tabs on him. The untrustworthy outlet has spent a lot of time falsely alleging that Kidman and Urban are having marriage problems. In reality, the spouses are going strong, as was evident at the premiere of “Big Little Lies” last month. In 2017, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for wrongly reporting that Kidman and Urban’s marriage was in trouble because she wanted to move back to Australia, but the country star insisted on staying in Nashville. Despite what the outlet’s possibly fictitious “insider” says, a rep qualified to speak on Kidman’s behalf confirms she’s not “keeping tabs” on her husband and has no reason to do so. And with all the stories about his flirty nature, who can blame her?”

The supposed source further contends that Kidman calls her husband nonstop when they’re apart but “she doesn’t see it as overbearing. We’re told it’s completely untrue. 2017. Here’s what’s really happening. The unreliable outlet didn’t realize that the spouses own several homes all over the world, including two properties in Sydney alone. The narrative is simply ridiculous. Gossip Cop can debunk the bogus story. Leslee Dart, Spokesperson for Nicole Kidman.

Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry In “Hot Romance”?

“HollywoodLife Flip-Flops On Halle Berry, Keanu Reeves ‘Dating Rumors’.” Gossip Cop, 2 June 2018. It simply went on, churning out more phony articles. “Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry Developing Romance?” Gossip Cop, 25 Jan. Another byproduct is that equally untrustworthy outlets picked up the bogus narrative about Berry and Reeve dating without bothering to fact-check it. While Gossip Cop only listed a few examples of this fictitious premise, there were literally thousands of more inaccurate stories, all based on the original Life & Style lie. For instance, Gossip Cop had to bust Woman’s Day when it put its own spin on it for a piece about how Reeves was no longer “morose” after being in a romance with Berry. The tabloid never issued a retraction or acknowledged it was wrong. 2019. However, even Craig’s rep said there was no validity to the story. The truth, which Gossip Cop reported from Day One last May, is that Berry and Reeves never dated or were in a relationship other than a professional one. The publication’s supposed source further shared how Reeves was “Halle’s type,” and there was “no hiding their attraction.” Of course, the movie has since been released, and it’s abundantly clear that Berry and Reeves, who have widely promoted the movie, are not dating, as asserted a year ago. Moving forward, the next time that magazine writes about either Berry or Reeves, one should approach its reporting with a healthy dose of skepticism. This is about how magazines routinely make incorrect claims and are rarely held accountable for their errors. added a new angle, insisting the actress had been in love “for years” with her co-star, but only after production wrapped did Reeves and Berry take their romance “to the next level.”
One would think that would be it, but yet another sister publication, the National Enquirer, maintained Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz were playing cupid for Berry and Reeves, who worked with the married stars on other films. On May 30, 2018, Life & Style published an article that insisted Reeves and Berry were in a “hot new romance.” In an effort not to get caught right away for fibbing, the outlet alleged the John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum co-stars wouldn’t declare their love for one another until after the film finished shooting.

Another untraceable “source” was quoted in that story as saying Stefani “demanded he hit the gym or hit the highway.” The almost assuredly made-up tipster explained that she took a hard stance because Stefani “fear[ed] he won’t be healthy enough to care for their child.”
Again, she was (and is still) not carrying “The Voice” star’s baby. Shuster, Andrew. 2019. “Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton Having Baby Girl?” Gossip Cop, 30 Jan. Also, Stefani has acknowledged in the past that it’s actually her boyfriend who makes her work out and even referred to Shelton as “my trainer.” And once more, while the publication hid behind an anonymous and possibly phony “source,” Stefani’s rep told Gossip Cop on the record she never gave Shelton any kind of ultimatum like that. The year didn’t start off well with its tales about Stefani and Shelton. (Getty Images)
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have been the subject of constant rumors ever since they began dating in late 2015. Seemayer, Zach. Now four months later, there’s still no engagement news. Additionally, it’s clear Stefani is not pregnant. In the real world, of course, Stefani and Shelton were never slated to wed, nor were they even engaged, which is still the case to this day. Not surprisingly, however, the whole report was fabricated. 2019. published an article that maintained Stefani had called off her wedding to Shelton, even though she was pregnant with his child. The magazine’s entire premise was based on the word of an unnamed “source.” Conversely, Stefani’s rep told Gossip Cop on her behalf that the article’s claims were 100 percent “untrue.”
The unreliable reporting continued just two days later when OK!’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, contended Stefani gave Shelton an ultimatum of getting fit or she would dump him. To bolster its tale, the publication swore it had “source” who said Stefani “broke the baby news during her vows and everyone erupted in screams of joy.” Glaringly omitted in that story was when the marriage ceremony supposedly took place and how no legitimate outlets got wind of it. “Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani Making Engagement Announcement?” Gossip Cop, 26 Jan. “EXCLUSIVE: Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton Dish on Hitting the Gym Together: ‘He’s My Trainer!'” Entertainment Tonight, 18 Apr. We’re not even at the halfway mark yet, but 2019 has already shaped up to be a year of more inaccurate stories about “The Voice” coach and the No Doubt singer. Below are five articles Gossip Cop has busted so far. “Gwen Stefani Announced She’s Pregnant During Blake Shelton Wedding?” Gossip Cop, 17 Apr. 2019. Most of them have been false wedding and baby reports. Lastly, just four weeks ago, Life & Style ran a report on its front page that Stefani announced at her wedding to Shelton that she was pregnant. To be sure, there have been many other bogus articles these past few months, including a cover story that absurdly stated as fact that Stefani and Shelton were having a baby girl and even threw a gender reveal party at her Los Angeles home.

Meghan Markle ‘Twins’ Stories Exposed Poor Standards For Royal Baby Reporting

And while there were many other outlets not mentioned here that wrote speculative pieces about the Duchess of Sussex expecting twins, there was one website, however, that consistently debunked it. Perry, Simon. The second one asserted she was carrying twin girls. Incredibly, the manufactured stories about Markle being pregnant with twins continued right up until moments before she gave birth to Archie, with places like the Express and Pinkvilla, for example, both running pieces that twins were a strong possibility (below). That was followed days after their wedding by a National Enquirer cover story that absurdly maintained Markle was pregnant with Prince Harry’s twin babies. Days later, Woman’s Day, which kicked off the made-up narrative two months earlier with its front page about how the duchess “wants” two babies, made its own wish come true with yet another cover that incorrectly stated, Markle’s dad confirmed she was pregnant with twins. 2018. 2018. Moving forward, Gossip Cop hopes those same outlets employ better reporting standards before birthing more rumors about the royals. Two weeks after that bogus report, Life & Style ran one of its own, insisting Markle was pregnant with twins, a boy and a girl. For months on end, a slew of media outlets claimed they believed or even knew for certain that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were having twins, and for that same amount of time, Gossip Cop rightly noted she was carrying just one baby. 2018. “Meghan Markle Really Pregnant With Twins?” Gossip Cop, 1 Dec. (Express and Pinkvilla)
The reason why is simple: Gossip Cop fact-checked every article with our vast network of sources connected to the royal family, as well as with officials in the palace who have the authority to comment. The often discredited supermarket tabloid tried to convince its readers it was true with a photo of the former actress, with what it asserted was a baby bump. “Meghan Markle NOT Pregnant With Twins, Despite Report.” Gossip Cop, 30 May 2018. 2018. In March 2018, Woman’s Day alleged without any proof whatsoever that Markle and Prince Harry wanted twins. And covering its bases, the tabloid finished with Markle expecting twin boys. On the contrary, in an interview on “Good Morning Britain” around that time, Thomas Markle said, “I don’t think there is a stork in the air yet.” The tabloid was simply lying. “Watch an Adorably Nervous Prince Harry Talk About His and Meghan Markle’s ‘Upcoming Baby.'” People, 16 Oct. That was Gossip Cop. untruthfully contended on its cover that the palace “confirmed” Markle was pregnant with twins, along with an unattributed quote inside about how “we’ll raise our babies in America.” Actually, Kensington Palace confirmed to Gossip Cop then that no one from the royal household spoke to the habitually disproven magazine. 2018. But, as Gossip Cop noted then, the photo was taken in 2014, and she was decidedly not expecting. None of its articles were right. (Gossip Cop Composite)
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry did not have twins, despite numerous and repeated reports about them expecting two babies. Shuster, Andrew. It’s big proof, according to the magazine, was that when the Duchess of Sussex arrived in Australia for her first royal tour with Prince Harry, she covered her belly “with not one but two purple folders.” However, while speaking later that day at the Admiralty House in Sydney, Prince Harry shared in the singular how he was excited about having “a boy or a girl.”
Life & Style also struck out with its third cover when it swore up and down Markle was pregnant with twin boys. “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.” Kensington Palace Twitter account, 15 Oct. Meghan Markle Prince Harry

Sources

“Meghan Markle ‘Wants Twins’ With Prince Harry Is Made-Up Story.” Gossip Cop, 23 Mar. Hoping the third time would be the charm, shortly after Kensington Palace officially announced the duchess’ pregnancy, Woman’s Day published yet another cover story about Markle and Prince Harry having twin babies. “Meghan Markle, Prince Harry NOT Expecting Twins, Despite Report.” Gossip Cop, 7 June 2018. 2018. “Meghan Markle Dad Did NOT Confirm She’s Pregnant With Twins, Despite Report.” Gossip Cop, 25 June 2018. And, of course, on Monday the couple welcomed their first (and only) child, Archie Harrison. As a reminder, the first one said she was having a boy and a girl. “Prince Harry, Meghan Markle NOT Expecting Twins, Despite Speculative Report.” Gossip Cop, 24 Oct. 2018. “Meghan Markle Pregnant With Twins NOT Confirmed By Palace, Despite Report.” Gossip Cop, 20 June 2018. The false speculation began 14 months ago, even before the royals wed. Sadly, we expect the apocalypse to arrive sooner than members of the media issuing retractions or taking responsibility for mistakenly claiming Markle was pregnant with twins. “Meghan Markle NOT Pregnant With ‘Two Girls,’ Despite Report.” Gossip Cop, 22 Aug. “Meghan Markle NOT Four Months Pregnant With Twin Girls, Despite Report.” Gossip Cop, 22 Sept. Then, having forgotten that it declared the duchess was having a boy and a girl in June, Life & Style came back in August with yet another phony cover about Markle being pregnant with Prince Harry’s twin girls. In that fabricated article, the publication included a fake quote supposedly from Prince Harry that read, “We’re naming the girl Diana.” Later that same month, OK! The magazine couldn’t have been more wrong, but that didn’t stop its other sister publication, In Touch, from parroting its tale with its own September front page story that exclaimed Markle was four months pregnant with twin girls.

In fact, since those bogus articles, the No Doubt singer has launched her “Gwen Stefani – Just A Girl” residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas that began in June 2018 and runs through November 2019. Her spokesperson similarly told us that was also wrong. In this case, Gossip Cop roasted both magazines for their misguided pieces about Stefani.

Zac Efron, Lily Collins Dating Again?

2018. Back in October, Gossip Cop called out Star’s sister publication, OK!, for falsely claiming Efron was worried about the movie being “too gory” for mainstream audiences. A supposed insider tells the outlet, “They’ve had amazing nights together. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. Gossip Cop also debunked a National Enquirer story claiming Efron thought he looked “too handsome” in his role as the serial killer. (Getty Images)

“Zac Efron ‘Worried’ His Ted Bundy Movie Is ‘Too Gory’?” Gossip Cop, 28 Oct. 2018. The outlet’s phony story was seemingly concocted simply because the two are co-starring in a movie together. “Zac Efron Thinks He Looks Too Handsome Playing Serial Killer Ted Bundy?” Gossip Cop, 16 Feb. 2018. It’ll make for a very interesting publicity trail when it’s time to promote their movie, that’s for sure!”
Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a source close to the actor, who tells us the magazine’s report is simply “not true.” Our trustworthy insider, who wasn’t able to speak on the record, assures us Efron and Collins aren’t dating. The unreliable magazine insisted that the actor got too deep into character and was nasty to the cast and crew when cameras stopped rolling. In reality, Bundy was known for charming his female victims with his good looks, and it’s one of the reasons the handsome actor was cast in the role. Shortly before that, Gossip Cop busted Star’s other sister outlet, Life & Style, for wrongly alleging that Efron acted like a “jerk and a creep” on the set of his serial killer biopic. We’ve learned it’s false. That story was also a complete fabrication. This latest report about Efron dating his co-star is similarly bogus. It’s worth noting, the actor’s involvement in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile has resulted in a lot of untrue tabloid stories. The two stars have remained friends since their brief romance back in 2012, but they’re not an item again. According to Star, the two stars reignited a romance while working together on the upcoming Ted Bundy movie, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. They’ve always had a spark, and they were so good together — but back then Zac was a huge star, and Lily was still starting out.”

The alleged source further contends that the co-stars “have been hanging out loads since filming wrapped, and if Lily has her way, it will continue.” The questionable tipster adds, “No one will be surprised if Lily tries to get serious with Zac again. Shuster, Andrew. “Zac Efron A ‘Jerk And Creep’ On Set Of Ted Bundy Movie?” Gossip Cop, 16 Mar. In an interview, however, the actor noted that the film is more of a character study of the serial killer and doesn’t glorify his crimes. Shuster, Andrew.
