Is Barbra Streisand upset about not being offered a role in the upcoming remake of her 1976 musical drama A Star Is Born? One of this week’s new tabloids claims the iconic actress/singer is angry about the supposed snub, but Gossip Cop has learned the truth.

Bradley Cooper is directing and co-starring alongside Lady Gaga in a reimagining of Streisand’s classic film, which tells the story of an aging rock star who falls in love with a young singer and helps her rise to stardom. Streisand produced the original alongside ex-boyfriend Jon Peters, who’s also working on the new version, but she isn’t involved in the reboot.

An article in the latest issue of Star, however, claims the 75-year-old entertainer is furious with Peters for leaving her out of the remake. A supposed “source” tells the magazine Streisand was expecting either a co-starring role or producer’s credit, adding, “She heard co-star/director Bradley Cooper has brought out the best in Gaga and Babs feels totally obsolete.” The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “Barbra doesn’t need the money but sharing in the green might have made her less jealous.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us the tabloid’s story is simply untrue and made-up. Oddly enough, Star seems to have it out for the remake of the romantic musical, as we’ve busted several of the magazine’s previous phony stories surrounding the project.

Gossip Cop recently called out the magazine for falsely claiming Cooper’s singing voice in A Star Is Born is so bad it needs to be dubbed by a professional. Shortly before that nonsense, we busted the magazine for wrongly alleging Gaga was giving Cooper unwanted sexual attention on set. Despite Star’s insistence on creating drama behind-the-scenes of the highly-anticipated remake, the drama will only appear on-screen.
