Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are NOT in a “$170 million divorce,” despite a new tabloid cover story falsely claiming their marriage has been “destroyed” by a “cheating scandal.” Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the report.

Inside Wednesday’s National Enquirer, it’s declared, “Jen Explodes In Fury Over Justin’s Secret Hookups!” A sub-headline further reads, “$170 million divorce erupts as she catches him contacting his former lover.” What’s supposedly going on?

According to the supermarket tabloid, Aniston “caught” Theroux “making secret phone calls to his former gal pal of 14 years, costume designer Heidi Bivens, and now their marriage could explode into a $170 million mess!” A tearful confrontation allegedly ensued. And while Theroux has supposedly denied any “hanky panky” and “swore up and down he had been completely faithful to Jen,” it’s said the actress “has her doubts.”

“Jen feels destroyed by Justin. This is the ultimate betrayal for her and her absolutely worst nightmare,” a so-called “source” is quoted as saying. The supposed snitch goes on, “The situation between Jen and Justin is nuclear right now. Jen feels like she threw her all into her marriage, and now she’s been blindsided by Justin’s callous behavior.”

The outlet notes “a divorce would be a monumental embarrassment for Jen — not to mention a financial nightmare.” But despite the sensational cover and headlines, the story never actually says the two are breaking up. In fact, the piece ends by speculating what could happen “if they split.”

That’s right, “IF.” There is no “$170 million divorce.” And Aniston and Theroux are actually as happy as ever, stepping out for a date night last Friday. The only thing “destroyed” here is the National Enquirer’s cover story. Reps for BOTH Theroux and Aniston exclusively confirm to Gossip Cop the “cheating” and “divorce” allegations are untrue.
