Allison Williams is not unhealthily thin or suffering from an eating disorder, despite a new tabloid report that suggests something’s wrong with the “Girls” star. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim about Williams’s weight. We’re told its “not true.”

According to Star magazine, Williams’s thin frame “drew gasps from even the most svelte fashionistas” at the recent DVF Awards in New York. “It was the buzz of the red carpet,” alleges a so-called “eyewitness,” who added, “She looked so unbelievably thin, when she turned to the side it was shocking.” The tabloid seemingly has that same “source” at the fashion event somehow know what’s also going on the set of “Girls,” because the questionable “eyewitness” claims the show’s creator and star Lena Dunham “took [Williams] aside to ask her if she was OK, but Allison won’t admit there’s an issue.”

To fill out its thin-on-facts story, the magazine intimates that the actress’s father “Brian Williams’ spiraling career” at NBC has led to “Allison’s stress” and accompanying weight loss. The tabloid also speculates that after Williams’s husband, Ricky Van Veen, changed his eating habits to become less “chubby,” he might have pushed the actress as well to slim down.

While it’s true Williams weighs less than when she came out of college and made it as an actress, she is not unhealthy, too thin, or battling an eating disorder. A rep for Williams exclusively tells Gossip Cop any insinuation that she has a problem with her weight is “not true.” Interestingly, Gossip Cop busted Star three years ago when it falsely claimed Williams was feuding with Dunham, and the actress looked just a thin then as she does now.
