Ashton Kutcher “Love Child Shocker!” Cover Is A Laugher
Masters of the bait-and-switch, In Touch is at it again this week with a cover devoted to Ashton Kutcher‘s “Love Child Shocker!”
In Touch does not have any “love child” bombshell – just carefully worded misdirection to further sensationalize the ongoing Kutcher-Moore story. The magazine promotes an “exclusive” interview with Kutcher’s “mistress” – but the “mistress” turns out to be Brittney Jones, whose claims of a fling last year with Kutcher were slammed by the actor’s legal team and never validated.
It’s Jones – not Leal – who speaks with In Touch and alleges that Kutcher and she never practiced birth control, leading to a moment when she “thought she was pregnant” (she wasn’t) and Kutcher supposedly cut ties. Based on a never-substantiated story of another woman’s non-pregnancy, therefore, In Touch suggests there’s “the very real possibility that Ashton could be the father of a love child” with Leal.
There’s no “baby news,” no pregnancy, and no love child. The real “shocker” would be if In Touch actually backed up its reckless cover with a story that matched.
