Ben Affleck didn’t demand that new girlfriend Lindsay Shookus “get a makeover,” despite a ridiculous report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim.

Before insultingly referring to the “Saturday Night Live” producer as “frumpy,” RadarOnline goes on to call Affleck “insensitive and shallow, then claims he wants his girlfriend to pretty herself up. A supposed “source” tells the site, “Ben takes his image incredibly seriously, and while he adores Lindsay he’s aware she’s not quite the glamour puss of say, Emily Ratajkowski or Blake Lively,” neither of whom the actor dated, despite the webloid’s false claim otherwise.

The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to contend that Affleck wants his girlfriend to look beautiful at all times in an effort to “uphold his Hollywood image,” so he told Shookus “to seize the moment and get herself a brand new wardrobe, even some fillers if necessary.” The questionable source adds, “She’s totally smitten and dancing to his tune, so expect her to follow through and vamp up her image big time.”

Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a trustworthy source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us Affleck never demanded that Shookus get a makeover, and the webloid’s claim otherwise is complete “nonsense.” Of course, we’ve repeatedly busted the outlet for publishing bogus stories about the movie star, so this latest fabrication comes as no surprise.

Gossip Cop recently called out the site for falsely claiming Affleck gained 50 pounds due to compulsive eating and could no longer fit into his Batman suit. We also corrected the outlet after it wrongly reported Affleck wanted to reconcile with Jennifer Garner so he wouldn’t have to pay her any spousal support. This latest article about the actor’s new relationship is equally unfounded.
