Barbra Streisand and James Brolin are NOT on the verge of a divorce, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story. We’re told there’s no merit to the claims.

According to RadarOnline, the longtime couple’s “stormy, 18-year marriage” is “on the ropes, with an ugly $550 million divorce war looming, after a nasty fight in front of pals at a Malibu eatery.” It’s alleged “the situation turned nasty between Babs and James while they were out with Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria.” The article alternately describes this supposedly public spat as a “final showdown,” “screaming match” and “screamfest.”

Streisand and Brolin allegedly “stunned their dinner guests” at Nobu, and a so-called “source” claims the Baldwins were “totally taken aback.” The cause of this supposed dust-up? An alleged dispute over a remark about parenting. Streisand was left “humiliated,” contends the site’s tipster, adding, “She and James just shot daggers at each other with their eyes the rest of the night.”

Another “spywitness” is quoted as saying, “You could cut the tension with a knife.” But even though the webloid says this took place in one of the most popular celebrity restaurants, no reputable outlets have reported Streisand and Brolin having a public “screaming match.” And all RadarOnline has to support its story is paparazzi pictures of the stars leaving the restaurant.

Still, an “insider” for the online publication insists, “They are at the point of no return.” But Gossip Cop investigated, and we’re exclusively told this purported “screamfest” inside a crowded hot spot is “totally made up.” What’s more is that we’re also told the divorce allegation is “nonsense.”
