Jennifer Aniston is no stranger to false reports, but this week’s Star is particularly bad. The tabloid claims the actress is adopting a baby from Mexico.

Star‘s cover boasts about “signed and sealed” adoption papers, comments from an “orphanage official,” and even a scoop about Aniston supposedly using Courteney Cox‘s nanny. “It’s a done deal!” declares Star.

Aniston’s been visiting the Casa Hogar Sion orphanage in Tijuana, explains the magazine, and “adopted a baby.” The “Friends” star has even “installed” a $250,000 gender-neutral nursery in her Beverly Hills home, and plans to retain the services of Marva Soogrim, a nanny who’s worked with Cox and other famous moms. “She’ll have the child in her arms” by her February 11 birthday, Star insists.

Wow. This all sounds so definitive and specific. But it’s 100 percent made up. Aniston has NOT adopted a baby, has NOT hired a nanny and has NOT built a nursery. Except for Aniston’s support of the orphanage, the entire story is “fabricated,” a rep for Aniston tells Gossip Cop.

In fact, we’re told that while cobbling together this imaginary adoption, Star was “harassing” the people who run Friends of El Faro, an organization that raises funds for the orphanage and even the kids themselves. Maybe it’s time for Star to adopt some new methods of reporting.
