Courteney Cox and Michael Keaton are NOT rekindling their former romance, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this story. A source close to Cox assures us that they are “not dating.”

According to the National Enquirer, Cox and Keaton are back together two decades after she ended their five-year relationship in 1995. A so-called “insider” tells the tabloid that after her engagement to Snow Patrol guitarist Johnny McDaid ended in September, Jennifer Aniston urged Keaton to reach out to her. “The spark between Courteney and Michael is still there!” claims the magazine’s alleged insider, adding, “They’re very comfortable together. He’s making her feel good about herself again. They’re making up for lost time.”

The tabloid’s ill-informed “source” goes on to conveniently say, albeit in very unnatural language, “Courtney has regretted walking out on Michael years ago, and he’s grateful he’s giving her a second chance.” And as for reputed matchmaker Aniston, the magazine alleges she’s “thrilled they’re making another go of it. She’d love to see Courteney married and settled again!”

Much like the entirely false rumor about Courtney Cox hooking up with Matthew Perry that Gossip Cop exclusively debunked on Thursday, this new tale that links her to Keaton is similarly wrong. A source close to the actress also exclusively tells Gossip Cop that Cox and Keaton are “not dating” or rekindling.
