According to OK! magazine, Justin Theroux is “desperate to win back Jennifer Aniston.”

The tabloid explains that what been an idyllic relationship turned ugly over the holidays, when “tensions bubbled over and nearly tore the couple apart.” At the heart of the alleged conflict was Aniston’s supposed disappointment in Theroux not proposing to her by the end of the year. An “inside source” tells OK!, “It’s been a nightmare few weeks for Jen and Justin.”

Theroux is now “begging for a reprieve,” claims the mag. “He’s freaked out, terrified that he’s going to lose her,” explains the so-called “source,” adding that Theroux is looking frantically for an engagement ring and planning an “epic” proposal “to make up for acting like such a jerk.”


Please allow Gossip Cop to introduce some reality into this sequence of events. Back in December, OK! claimed that Aniston and Theroux were going to elope in upstate New York over New Year’s. But that was never the case, and Gossip Cop busted the 100% wrong story.

Then, tabloids started circulating the rumor that there was some horrible blowout between Aniston and Theroux during their holiday trip to Colorado. That was a fabrication, too.

Now, OK! is trying to make everyone forget that the mag wrongly predicted a New Year’s elopement by publishing a new story about Theroux supposedly proposing to Aniston to make up for a terrible fight that never happened. A source close to Aniston tells Gossip Cop, “None of this is true.”
