Taylor Swift did NOT condescendingly offer to give her pal Lena Dunham a “makeover,” despite a new tabloid report. The tall-tale alleges that Swift’s offer caused a bit of “bad blood” between the friends, but Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this rumor. We’re told there’s no truth to it.

According to Life & Style, Swift reached out to the “Girls” creator and star after she complained about feeling “chubby” while standing next to the singer, actress Hailee Steinfeld, and models Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge during a Swift concert in New Jersey last month. A so-called “insider” is quoted in the tabloid as saying, “[Swift] offered to help Lena out by getting her a new stylist for a complete makeover.” That, alleges the magazine, offended Dunham, who supposedly told Swift to “back off.”

The tabloid’s supposed “source” adds, “Lena loves Taylor and realizes she meant well. But Lena has a unique style and doesn’t want to imitate Taylor or her model friends.” Gossip Cop is told the entire tabloid story, however, was manufactured to create a faux fight between the two good friends. Dunham’s rep assures Gossip Cop that Life & Style’s latest Swift story is “not true.”
