Amy Schumer and John Mayer are not dating, despite a new tabloid report falsely claiming a romance has sparked between the two stars. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim.

“Amy Schumer & John Mayer Are An Item And Her Friends Are Concerned,” declares a new headline on OK!’s website. The untrustworthy outlet goes on to claim the comedienne began dating the musician shortly after splitting from boyfriend Ben Hanisch a few months ago. A supposed “source” tells the magazine, “Amy and John have surprised everyone with how close they have become. They are openly flirty with each other, and rumors are flying around Hollywood that they have become its most unlikely new couple.”

The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to say Schumer’s friends are worried about her supposed new romance because “John is a serious womanizer and Amy seemed pretty shaken from her recent breakup, so her friends are understandably a little concerned.” But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us the two aren’t dating and the tabloid’s claim otherwise is simply “not true.”

In fact, Mayer has been on the road touring for the past three months, so the outlet’s assertion that he’s been seeing Schumer since her May breakup is clearly fabricated. These dating rumors seem to have been concocted simply because the comedienne shared an Instagram photo of herself with Mayer and a group of other friends outside of the Comedy Cellar in New York City last month. Despite attending a comedy show together (with several other pals), we’re assured Schumer and Mayer aren’t “an item.”

OK! is the same untrustworthy magazine Gossip Cop recently called out for alleging Schumer quit the upcoming Barbie movie due to Twitter backlash, which wasn’t the reason she pulled out of the film. This latest article involving her nonexistent romance with Mayer is also bogus.
