Courteney Cox And Matt LeBlanc NOT Dating, Despite Report (EXCLUSIVE)
Courteney Cox and Matt LeBlanc are NOT dating, despite a report that ridiculously tries to sensationalize photos from the “Friends” cast reunion. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the claim. The story questions whether the former co-stars are just “friends,” and we can confirm that yes, they are just that.
Cox, LeBlanc and their colleagues reunited on Sunday for a tribute to director James Burrows. After, the two were photographed giving each other a peck as they left the Sunset Tower in Los Angeles. “The ‘Friends’ stars walked out arm in arm together, fueling claims that they could be dating,” writes RadarOnline, stressing how they “shared a kiss.”
The webloid points out that Cox is “newly single” and highlights how she acted “affectionately” with LeBlanc. Grasping at straws, the site goes on to say, “On the hit show, Cox and LeBlanc were friends, but she married his roommate, Chandler Bing, played by Matthew Perry. Now, there are rumors the couple could be dating each other more than a decade after the show ended.”
Of course, there weren’t any dating “rumors” or “claims” until RadarOnline decided to make them up. Instead of simply reporting that longtime pals had a special evening with co-workers, the outlet decided to use the rather benign photos to stretch the hangout into something else. Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for LeBlanc, though, who actually called the webloid’s desperation “funny.”
The spokesperson exclusively assures us there’s nothing “romantic” going on between the actor and Cox. The blatant sensationalism comes a month after RadarOnline’s sister publication Star tried to peddle the nonsense that the actress and Perry had become “friends with benefits.” We fully expect the gossip mill to link Cox to David Schwimmer next… even though he’s married.
