Allison Williams is not having an “emotional breakdown” in the wake of her father Brian’s scandal, despite what OK! claims in a new story. Gossip Cop can bust the report.

According to the outlet, the “Girls” actress has been “reeling” since her dad admitted to exaggerating his 2003 reporting from the Iraq war zone and was subsequently suspended from “NBC Nightly News.” OK! alleges that friends “fear she’s in the midst of an emotional breakdown.”

“Allison’s become increasingly distant from reality,” a so-called “family insider” tells the magazine, adding that Williams’ wedding to Ricky Van Veen has been postponed not because of work commitments, but rather due to the controversy surrounding her father.

The OK! insider explains, “Her hero is now the subject of ridicule. It’s been very hard for her to accept.” Another source for the magazine says it’s been difficult for the actress to come to terms with the fact that her dad is “not as perfect as she thought.”

Meanwhile, OK! is just as imperfect as we assumed. There is NO truth to anything in the story. First of all, Williams’ wedding has not even been postponed. That’s a bogus premise Gossip Cop has learned is entirely made up. She and Van Veen never set a date. More importantly, a source close to Williams tells Gossip Cop exclusively it’s “completely false” that she’s having any kind of breakdown.
