Jessica Biel And Justin Timberlake NOT Expecting Twins, Despite Report
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are NOT expecting twins, despite a completely fabricated tabloid report that was subsequently picked up and spread by other outlets. Gossip Cop can help correct this rumor.
According to OK!, Biel found out earlier this month that she’s pregnant with twins following months of IVF treatments. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “They’ve been keeping it very quiet, but the buzz is that she’s almost three months along and they’ll start telling more people soon.” The tabloid’s dubious insider also claims the actress was “really bloated and tired and irritable” during this time.
Unsurprisingly, HollywoodLife was among the webloids that parroted the magazine’s bogus claim without bothering to do any fact checking. But during an appearance on Thursday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Biel herself shot down the rumor that she and Timberlake were expecting babies number two and three.
“I don’t even know what to say about these things,” Biel told DeGeneres about the tabloid story. “I thought I was doing good with my yoga practice. I thought I was in the gym, but no. I have a gut apparently.” The talk show host could relate to being a victim of false rumors, noting, “I’ve heard Portia and I are getting divorced, and I’ve asked her about it, and she doesn’t know anything about it either.”
Biel similarly joked, “I called Justin and was like, ‘Are we [having twins?] No? Oh, ok. Cool.’ He usually knows more than I do about everything.” Gossip Cop, however, isn’t surprised that OK! would concoct such a story (nor that HollywoodLies would repeat it). The tabloid repeatedly made up false claims about Biel last year while she was pregnant with the couple’s nearly one-year-old son Silas. Among the magazine’s many tall tales Gossip Cop previously corrected was that the actress was supposedly banning her husband from the delivery room.
