Russell Crowe is not dating “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin’s widow Terri, despite a wholly fabricated report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim and expose an outlet for making up the entire story. We’re told there’s “absolutely no truth” to the rumor.

According to the repeatedly discredited RadarOnline, Terri Irwin has “moved past” Steve’s untimely death from a stingray barb to the chest, and is now getting “hot and heavy with fellow Aussie and her late husband’s former bestie, married actor Russell Crowe.” The webloid, which uses a friendly photo of Crowe and Terri at an Australian event and an inset of Steve looking shocked, then quotes one of its either woefully ill-informed or possibly entirely fabricated sources saying that Terri and Crowe have been secretly dating for “several months,” and are going to take their relationship public because they “can’t fight their feelings any longer.”

The outlet alleges, however, that Steve would be “devastated” by Terri’s new relationship because Crowe, though separated from Daniele Spencer for a few years, is still technically married. “Steve was all about promoting Australian family values,” another seemingly fake “friend” tells the webloid, adding, “He’d be rolling over in his grave if he knew Terri was involved with a married man, even one who was his mate.” The site’s so-called “source” further claims, “It’s very disrespectful to Steve’s legacy,” and that his widow and Crowe have “betrayed his ideals.”

The made-up quotes don’t end there. RadarOnline’s supposed “source” goes on to state that after helping Steve’s kids, Bindi and Robert, “through their grief,” Crowe’s “affection turned romantic” for Terri, and they “fell in love.” “They couldn’t fight their love for each other,” continues the seemingly manufactured “source,” who also notes, “None of us are surprised they’ve taken things to the next level.”

Sadly, Gossip Cop is not surprised the webloid posted this outright lie. We have busted the outlet an inordinate number of times for publishing complete falsehoods. All Gossip Cop had to do was simply fact-check RadarOnline’s story to find out it is 100 percent untrue. A rep for Terri Irwin urged us to “correct this,” and assured Gossip Cop, “There is absolutely no truth to these claims.”
