Amy Schumer is NOT “ditching” Jennifer Lawrence in favor of her boyfriend Ben Hanisch, despite a report. Gossip Cop can bust the silly tabloid story.

That allegation can be found in the new issue of Star, which claims Schumer is “always choosing her new beau over her bestie.” A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Before Ben came along, Amy and Jen were like sisters, but Amy basically dropped her. Jen couldn’t believe it.”

The magazine goes on to allege that Schumer is “so smitten with the hunky carpenter that she’s ignoring both her friendships and the new project: a flight attendant buddy comedy she and Jen are supposed to be working on.” The supposed “source” claims, “Amy is so wrapped up in Ben she doesn’t respond to Jen’s messages. Jen acts like she’s upset about the movie, but deep down she just wants her best friend back.”

Star even goes as far as declaring that Schumer needs “a lesson in Girl Code 101.” And Gossip Cop would suggest the gossip rag should take Fact-Checking 101, considering it couldn’t even get the basic plot details of their film correct, and fails to mention Schumer’s own sister was a third co-writer. It’s NOT a “buddy comedy,” but a comedy about sisters, one of whom has a lifelong dream of becoming a flight attendant.

It’s also telling that the tabloid ran this piece just one week after falsely claiming Schumer had hired Hanisch to be her assistant, something that’s mentioned NOWHERE in this new story. Clearly, Star has NO IDEA what is and isn’t going on in her life, and doesn’t give a hoot about consistency and accuracy. So, let Gossip Cop tell you: There is NO issue with Lawrence.
