Johnny Depp and Lucy Boynton are not dating. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the slew of reports that wrongly allege the actress is Depp’s new girlfriend. We are assured it’s untrue.

The fake news story seems to have begun with RadarOnline, which reported Depp has “fallen hard” for Boynton on the set of their new movie Murder On The Orient Express. One of the webloid’s highly suspect sources is quoted as saying, “Johnny’s totally smitten with Lucy,” and the 20-years younger actress is “equally enthralled” with him. Then, in highly unnatural language, the same seemingly made-up source adds, “Unlike his ex, Amber [Heard], Lucy is much more down to earth and doesn’t put up with his bad behavior so it should be a good match.”

In addition to alleging that “everyone’s convinced they’re hooking up,” the often discredited site blathers, “There’s a genuine fondness between them, and they love each other’s sense of humor and intellect.” The webloid further asserts they’re building the foundation for a “serious romance,” and claims Depp “says she’s the coolest chick he’s met in many years.” The only thing that’s serious is how seriously wrong RadarOnline is. And sadly, a slew of other lazy outlets picked up the site’s fake news, without even bothering to fact-check.

Gossip Cop looked into this story, and it’s all lies. A source close to Boynton tells us they’re not dating, and she’s not his girlfriend. Actually, the actress has a boyfriend. We’ve also reached out to reps for Boynton and Depp.

Just two weeks ago, Gossip Cop busted RadarOnline for publishing an entirely untrue article that falsely alleged Depp’s friends are concerned he has cancer because he’s lost a lot of weight. As Gossip Cop pointed out, the actor had shed the pounds for a movie. That story held no weight, nor does the latest one which wrongly ties Depp romantically to his co-star Lucy Boynton.
