Ben Affleck’s girlfriend Lindsay Shookus isn’t pregnant with his baby, despite a completely false tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim.

An article in the latest issue of OK! claims the reason the actor and “Saturday Night Live” producer recently went public with their relationship is because she’s possibly expecting. A supposed “source” tells the magazine, “There have been whispers that she might be pregnant with Ben’s child, and that’s why they decided to reveal they were together.” The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “Word is she has told people she wants another child.”

But the tabloid’s bogus story doesn’t end with false pregnancy rumors. The repeatedly discredited outlet goes on to allege Affleck’s friends fear the “pressure of going public” with his relationship might cause him to relapse on alcohol. “It’s a lot to balance along with his workload and adjusting to being a single dad,” says the magazine’s questionable source. “The biggest fear is that he could easily take to drinking again to cope – or just because he’s in love and having fun.”

Gossip Cop, however, can set the record straight. A mutual pal of ours and Shookus exclusively assures us the “SNL” producer isn’t pregnant, while a source close to Affleck tells us no one in his inner circle is worried about him drinking over his relationship. This magazine’s report is simply fabricated, which isn’t particularly surprising, considering we’ve repeatedly called out OK! for publishing bogus stories about the actor.

Back in April, Gossip Cop debunked the tabloid’s phony cover story alleging Affleck and Jennifer Garner had reunited and were expecting twins. We also recently busted the magazine for making up a report about Affleck getting wrinkle fillers. This latest article is similarly untrue.
