Cousins Jenny McCarthy and Melissa McCarthy are “at war!” declares the National Enquirer.

According to the tabloid, their “feud” exploded after Melissa allegedly snubbed Jenny’s wedding invitation, although their supposed “bad blood” can be traced back to Melissa’s years as a struggling actress.

“The cousins were close at one time, but they’ve grown distant over the past few years,” a so-called “source” tells the magazine.

A “pal” explains to the Enquirer, “Jenny feels she helped Melissa get a leg up in the business. But now that Melissa’s career is skyrocketing, Jenny feels she doesn’t have time for her.”

The Enquirer also claims Jenny told Melissa she’d have to lose weight to make it in Hollywood.

This is very dramatic, and completely made up.

“Hey media outlets! The story about my cousin Melissa and I is bullsh*t,” tweeted Jenny on Thursday. “I’m proud of her & would never say such hurtful words. Shame on you.”

The Enquirer has long printed insulting and wrong stories involving Melissa McCarthy’s weight.

We’re not surprised the tabloid invented a family feud, too.
