Megan Fox fear of germs is not keeping her from her man

Truth rating: 0

When magazines release interviews with top stars, it’s always a field day for inventive rumor mongers.

There’s nothing better than taking an actual quote from a hot actress…and spinning it into a completely false story.

In a chat with Allure, Megan Fox admitted she has obsessive compulsive tendencies, especially when it comes to germs.

“This is a sickness,” she says of her germophobia.

Cue this alarm-sounding headline in the National Enquirer: “Megan Fox’s germophobia takes toll on relationship.”

Uh, when did Fox say anything about the illness affecting her years-long relationship with Brian Austin Green?

She didn’t.

But that doesn’t stop the supermarket tab from quoting a so-called “insider,” who claims fears are so strong, “some days she even keeps her distance from Brian because she worries he’s going to give her germs that might make her sick.”


She “keeps her distance” from the boyfriend with whom she lives and is often photographed hugging and kissing?

A source close to the couple laughed off the story, acknowledging the actress’ germophobia but telling Gossip Cop the Enquirer‘s “reporting” isn’t true.

Gossip Cop wishes the Enquirer conquered its factcheckingophobia.
