Will Forte is NOT firing January Jones from “The Last Man On Earth,” despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story. We’re told it’s simply “not true.”

The rumor can be found in the pages of Star, which cruelly says that not only does Jones have a “chronic case” of “resting bitch face,” but she “really is that surly, at least on the set of her comedy series ‘Last Man Standing.'” That’s right. The tabloid couldn’t even get the name of the show correct.

“Last Man Standing” stars Tim Allen and airs on ABC. “The Last Man On Earth” stars Forte and Jones, among others, and airs on FOX. But Star still wants us to believe its “reporting” when its so-called “show insider” claims the actress “acts like she’s above everyone else.” The supposed source adds, “It was cool filming with her in the beginning, because she surprised everyone with how funny she was.”

But the magazine alleges that after Jones’ real-life relationship with Forte “cooled” earlier this year, “the set became rather frosty as well.” The “insider” goes on to claim, “She’s constantly complaining and making angry remarks,” supposedly to the point where “someone joked to Will that he should just kill her off, and now he’s seriously thinking about it.”

Star ends it piece by cracking, “Maybe the last man on Earth is fine without a woman!” Of course, if the outlet knew anything about the series, it would know there are several other female cast members, so the show would hardly be “without a woman.” Regardless, Gossip Cop is exclusively told by a rep that the Forte-Jones story is “absolutely not true.”
