Jim Toth is NOT “drinking away his marriage” to Reese Witherspoon, despite a new report that labels him a “hard-partying” and “rowdy husband.” Gossip Cop can correct the claim.

The story can be found in the new issue of Star, which alleges that while Witherspoon “appears to have kept her nose clean” since the couple’s 2013 arrests for a DUI incident, Toth spends his time drinking in bars. The agent’s pub of choice is supposedly Tavern Restaurant near their home in Brentwood, California, where he is said to go “multiple times a week” to get drunk.

A so-called “insider” who also “frequents” the establishment goes on to detail Toth’s alleged drinking habits, and how he supposedly gets belligerent as he watches sports on the bar television. And that’s not all. A different “regular” claims to Star that Toth has also been seen “chatting up” women. The tabloid uses the allegations to speculate about problems at home, and the state of his marriage to Witherspoon.

Of course, Star is the same magazine that published a cover story nearly a year ago falsely claiming Witherspoon and Toth were on the brink of a “$100 million divorce,” in part due to the actress’ supposedly excessive drinking. Gossip Cop exclusively debunked the allegation, and we can bust this one, too. As we reported then, neither Witherspoon nor Toth has an ongoing drinking problem.

But Star can’t even keep its lies straight, as it previously claimed Toth was upset about Witherspoon’s alcohol use, and now this new story pretty much says the opposite. Regardless, Gossip Cop is told Toth is NOT visiting neighborhood bars like Tavern on the regular.
