John Mellencamp is NOT pressuring Christie Brinkley to get married, despite an erroneous report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story. We’re told there is absolutely “no truth” to it.

According to RadarOnline, Mellencamp is “determined to get on a bended knee and ask” Brinkley “to say ‘I do,’ but she’s telling him, ‘Please don’t!'” The webloid says the music legend is “still the marrying type after three failed marriages, yet he’s having a hard time convincing four-time divorced girlfriend Brinkley to take the plunge again.” A so-called “friend” is quoted as saying, “He thinks dating should inevitably lead to matrimony, but he’s having trouble convincing Christie!”

“After four divorces, she’s soured on matrimony and is resisting a fifth marriage. But John’s not giving up his dream of making Christie his blushing bride,” continues the site’s alleged source. “Christie’s been holding him off at the pass, but don’t underestimate John!”

Indeed, the RadarOnline snitch claims, “He’s dangling a carrot in front of Christie, agreeing to move to New York, where Christie lives — if she’ll accept his marriage proposal! He’s ready and willing to turn his life upside down for her.”

Well, Gossip Cop would never underestimate Mellencamp, but you should often underestimate RadarOnline. The webloid is repeatedly caught sensationalizing facts or just plain making them up. And Gossip Cop is exclusively told that this marriage story is a “fabrication.”

A rep for Mellencamp and Brinkley tells Gossip Cop exclusively, “They are dating and are very happy. But there is no talk of marriage or relocating, and rejections of a proposal are entirely false.” The couple is still going strong, though, and we hear Brinkley recently spent time with Mellencamp at his home in Indiana, and now they’ll be spending some of the holidays together as well. Just don’t expect an engagement to come out of it.
