Nicole Kidman NOT “Getting Cozy” With Dev Patel, Despite Report
Nicole Kidman is NOT “getting cozy” with Dev Patel, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”
According to In Touch, the Lion co-stars acted like a couple while promoting their film at the Palm Springs International Film Festival earlier this month. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “They literally couldn’t keep their hands off each other. They entered the room holding hands, giggling and whispering into each other’s ear. She looked like she was in love!”
The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to purport that Kidman and Patel were so close that festival attendees thought the actress had broken up with husband Keith Urban. “People were whispering about how they didn’t know about the split,” adds the questionable source. “Dev was holding her around the waist much of the evening, and she was touching his face.” The “insider” further claims their supposed behavior was “a real slap in the face” to Urban, who’s “got to be livid.”
But Gossip Cop checked in with a reliable source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us that Kidman and Patel weren’t ever inappropriately flirty with each other. We’re further told that Urban isn’t concerned about his wife’s professional relationship with her co-star, and the tabloid’s claim otherwise is simply “not true.”
Unfortunately, Gossip Cop has repeatedly called out In Touch for making up stories about the actress, so this latest fabrication comes as no surprise. We previously busted the magazine for wrongly reporting that Kidman and Urban were headed for a split. We also debunked the publication’s tale about Kidman hiring a surrogate to have a third child. There was no truth to either of those claims, and the same goes for this latest one.
