Gwyneth Paltrow is NOT playing “peacemaker” to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, despite a fabricated tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told there’s “no truth whatsoever” to the story.

According to the National Enquirer, Affleck’s ex-girlfriend Paltrow is helping him and Garner amicably deal with their divorce process. A so-called “source” tell the tabloid, “Gwyneth has been like a rock to Ben ever since things went south with Jen.” The magazine’s seemingly fake insider also claims Paltrow is “coaching” the ex-couple on how to “put their own egos aside and agree to disagree… and reminded them that the kids come first.”

The tabloid’s dubious source further says Paltrow has “helped take Ben and Jen to a higher spiritual level.” But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Paltrow, who exclusively tells us there’s simply “no truth whatsoever” to the tabloid’s claim. Paltrow is not involved in any manner in Affleck and Garner’s divorce.

Of course, Gossip Cop has repeatedly corrected the Enquirer for making up stories about Affleck and Garner ever since the couple split last summer. We previously busted the magazine’s ridiculous claim that the exes were adopting twins to save their marriage. And shortly before that, Gossip Cop shot down the tabloid’s equally absurd article about the actor supposedly getting back together with Jennifer Lopez. Much like those tall tales, the publication’s latest story falsely roping Paltrow into the situation is untrue.
