Did Katie Holmes turn down Matthew Perry’s advances? A report in this week’s tabloids claims she put him in the “friend zone” after he hit on her. Gossip Cop has the real dish on this story.

According to Star, Perry “couldn’t be any more smitten with his ‘The Kennedys: After Camelot’ costar.” The problem, though, is Holmes “isn’t interested in taking things past professional.” A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Katie was thrilled when she heard that she was going to be working with Matthew, and they got along great, at first.”

“They would talk about old episodes of ‘Friends’ in between takes. She even confessed to having had a crush on Chandler when she was younger,” continues the supposed source. But everything allegedly changed when Perry “made a move.”

The outlet’s tipster claims, “Katie tried to let Matthew down gently, but he remains hopeful. He’s convinced she’ll change her mind.” And Gossip Cop is convinced Star doesn’t know what it’s talking about.

Last December, the magazine wrongly said Perry was “friends with benefits” with Courteney Cox. That was followed in January by a story alleging he was “off the wagon” due to a supposedly failing career. Later that month, the tabloid actually published a cover story claiming the actor was in a “drug scandal.”

None of that “reporting” panned out to be true, and Star started laying off him. Then, just a few weeks ago, sister outlet OK! falsely said Perry and Holmes were a “new couple.” Gossip Cop exclusively busted that dating report, and it seems like Star is now trying to cover up that mistake.

But this new tale about Holmes rejecting Perry is just as untrue as the previous take on the co-stars. A rep for Holmes confirms no such exchange ever happened.
