Renee Zellweger And Patrick Dempsey Romance On Set Of ‘Bridget Jones’ Sequel?
Renee Zellweger and Patrick Dempsey are NOT falling for each other on the set of Bridget Jones’s Baby, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this rumor. We’re told it’s “nonsense.”
According to Star, Zellweger is developing a “schoolgirl crush” on her co-star while filming the newest installment of the romantic-comedy franchise. A so-called “source on set” tells the tabloid, “It’s pretty obvious she’s sweet on him.” The tabloid’s supposed “insider” adds in fake-sounding language, “It’s not entirely one-sided, either. Patrick and Renee already have all sorts of inside jokes, and they constantly go out of their way to arrange private meetings to review the script and get to know each other better.”
In the real world, Zellweger is dating musician Doyle Bramhall II, who the tabloid claims is unhappy about the alleged flirting going on between Dempsey and his girlfriend. “Renee’s very much in love with Doyle, but when she’s around Patrick, she acts like a teenager,” the magazine’s seemingly phony source alleges.
Gossip Cop looked into the claim and it’s completely made up. A source involved with the production of Bridget Jones’s Baby laughed off the rumor, and exclusively assures Gossip Cop that any talk of a romance developing between Zellweger and Dempsey is just “nonsense.” We’re told the two have a friendly, working relationship and nothing more.
