Cass-ting Doubt on New Drew Barrymore Boyfriend Rumors

Truth rating: 1

By Daniel Gates


Drew Barrymore and Justin Long have been an on-again, off-again couple for a while, but now some of gossip’s least reliable outlets claim a new guy will permanently split the two.

Barrymore has “moved on” to ABC television executive Cort Cass, explains Hollyscoop, a site best-known for embarrassing mistakes and general sloppiness.

According to the (wrongly sourced) report Hollyscoop cites, a Cass pal says, “Drew and Cort have been out six times or so. They were hanging out on July 2 and were way lovey-dovey.” When assured the two are “just friends,” Hollyscoop protests that it’s “just Hollywood speak for ‘new relationship.'”

For once, Hollyscoop is actually over-thinking.

There’s no “new relationship” between Barrymore and Cass.

Not to be outdone, Perez Hilton flies into action. The blogger repeats the “new man” buzz about Cass, saying, “We wonder if this one is a keeper??”

Like many of his stories, this Hilton post is definitely not a “keeper.”

The rumors about Barrymore and Cass are “not true,” a source close to the actress tells Gossip Cop.
