Adam Sandler has been at the center of a lot of phony tabloid stories. Gossip Cop has debunked several bogus reports about the former "Saturday Night Live" cast member, who's returning to host "SNL" for the first time this week. Here are a few wrong rumors.
Gossip Cop busted Woman's Day last September for falsely claiming Sandler got into a heated fight with his wife Jackie during a family day out. An alleged insider told the magazine that the actor and his wife got into a "feisty verbal feud" while riding bikes in Malibu with their two daughters. The story was based on paparazzi photos in which Sandler's wife appears to be waving her arms around. A video of the incident, however, shows there was no argument. Sandler, his wife and their two girls simply stopped by the side of the road to have a discussion. At no point in the video did the comedian or his wife get angry with each other.
Gossip Cop called out RadarOnline last August for making up a ridiculous story about Sandler and Jennifer Aniston getting "caught" holding hands following her split from Justin Theroux. The unreliable blog further suggested there was some sort of romance developing between the two stars. In reality, they were simply filming scenes for their upcoming movie Murder Mystery. Sandler and Aniston, who play husband and wife in the Netflix comedy, were photographed hand-in-hand while shooting a sequence in Milan. They weren't "caught" doing anything other than working. Additionally, Sandler is happily married and has been friends with Aniston for more than 20 years. The actress was even a guest at his 2003 wedding.
A couple of years ago, Gossip Cop debunked a claim about Sandler giving Justin Bieber "acting advice." After Sandler and former "SNL" co-star David Spade were photographed having dinner with Bieber, Us Weekly alleged the singer shared a meal with the two comedic actors because he was interested in "breaking into acting" and wanted to "educate himself about the industry" with their "A-list help." But, as Gossip Cop noted back then, the tabloid failed with its report. Sandler himself called the story "weird" and "made up," noting they simply ate dinner and "hung out."
And shortly before that, we corrected an article from Star that wrongly maintained Sandler wanted to renew his vows and have a second wedding with his wife Jackie to thank her for "sticking by his side." While the sentiment was sweet, it simply wasn't true. At the time, a slew of mutual of friends of Gossip Cop and the "SNL" alum told us it was false. Time proved our reporting to be accurate because the spouses, although going strong, haven't had another marriage ceremony.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
