Christie Brinkley is NOT moving “Down South” for John Mellencamp, despite a report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. A rep tells us the allegation is untrue.

The rumor comes from Star, which has a piece its latest issue announcing, “Christie Goes Country For John.” The story says Brinkley “might be an Uptown Girl,” but now “she’s headed Down South in order to save her relationship.” The tabloid never says just why the romance needs saving, but nevertheless claims Brinkley “has agreed to move into her boyfriend’s 65-acre estate in Bloomington, Ind.”

“John is a country boy at heart. He has no problem flying out to New York City every now and then to spend time with Christie, but he’s made it very clear that he has no plans to move there permanently,” alleges a so-called “source.” In contrast, the supposed snitch says, “There isn’t anything Christie wouldn’t do for love.”

Hey, here’s something Star won’t do: Fact-check. It didn’t take much digging for Gossip Cop to find out there’s no relocating in the works. As a rep for the couple exclusively tells us, “Christie is not moving to the South.” A second insider Gossip Cop spoke to even wonders how “they make up this stuff.” Great question.
