Jennifer Garner has not “trapped” Ben Affleck into staying married by being pregnant with another baby, despite a wholly inaccurate tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to the repeatedly disputed National Enquirer, Garner has a “tell-tale baby bump” after returning from a “four-day trip to romantic Paris, where they were spotted kissing in a hotel bar.” The woefully off-base tabloid has one of its questionable sources quoted as saying “Jen is pregnant,” and an announcement is expected “very soon.” Actually, a real Garner insider tells Gossip Cop that the pregnancy announcement will happen in about a week and a half from… never.

Anyway, the magazine fills its space regurgitating how Affleck and Garner split last June, but all that time, alleges the outlet’s seemingly phony source, “Jen has played Ben like a fiddle.” The tabloid’s cockamamie source claims Garner “always wanted another child with him,” and even though they’ve been estranged for months, Affleck and Garner continue “sleeping together” because “Jen still loves him and missed their steamy sex life.” “It’s been Jen’s plan all along to keep [Affleck] guessing, then hit him with the news she’s pregnant.”

There’s one teeny weeny flaw with the publication’s story and that is, Garner is not pregnant. She and Affleck have not been “sleeping together,” and she does not have a “tell-tale baby bump.” The entire Enquirer report is wrong. A Garner insider exclusively tells Gossip Cop the tabloid’s claim is simply “not true.”

Sadly, Gossip Cop is not remotely surprised that the supermarket tabloid’s story is false. Just last week, we busted the magazine for wrongly reporting Garner was holding Affleck “hostage” by threatening to “air even more of his dirty laundry.” In the past, we’ve also called out the magazine for untruthfully stating Affleck was “back on” with Jennifer Lopez , as well as for claiming the actor and Garner were adopting twins to save their marriage. All those articles, and the current one about Garner being “pregnant” and back with Affleck, are fabrications.
