Jennifer Aniston did not have a “meltdown” over her belly after it was falsely claimed she had a baby bump, despite a report. Gossip Cop can correct the story, which turns one tabloid lie into another.

As Gossip Cop reported, In Touch alleged Aniston had an “unmistakable baby bump” last month, and claimed she was expecting her first child. We exclusively debunked the cover story, with a rep for the star saying of the magazine’s baby bump statements, “Shame on them!” But now it’s OK! who should be ashamed.

In a supposed “exclusive,” the outlet announces on its website, “‘Mortified’ Jennifer Aniston Panicking To Get Rid Of Her Belly — Inside her Body Meltdown!” The accompanying story asserts the star is “more body conscious than ever after some bloated belly photos prompted pregnancy rumors to swirl, and the actress is having a total meltdown.” The perceived weigh gain is attributed to Aniston allegedly “drinking a lot” in the wake of her mother’s death.

“But the moment those pregnancy stories started, she cut back immediately,” says a so-called “source,” who further claims Aniston has “been giving herself a hard time about everything from her belly to her butt and even her jowls.” Conveniently, though, the publication’s tipster adds that Aniston has already gotten “back into shape pretty quickly.”

Then why did Gossip Cop hear just a few days ago that OK! was “preparing a story for publication in which sources claim Jennifer Aniston is pregnant with Justin Theroux’s child”? This new tale about the star NOT having a baby bump came about just one day after that. Clearly, the magazine doesn’t care about accuracy OR consistency.

There was no pregnancy, just like there was no “body meltdown.” OK! just simply saw fit to turn the debunked In Touch claim into another false allegation. That’s not just shameful. It’s also ridiculous.
