Ben Affleck is not pursuing a romance with Tobey Maguire’s estranged wife Jennifer Meyer, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this fake news.

The two actors are friendly, having played in a number of celebrity poker games together, but a new article in the National Enquirer claims Affleck is going after his buddy’s estranged spouse. Maguire and Meyer split last October after nine years of marriage.

The magazine goes on to purport that Affleck is attracted to Meyer, whose father is one of the top executives in show business, because he believes she’s more adept at “dealing with the shark-infested waters of Hollywood” than estranged wife Jennifer Garner. The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to claim the actor isn’t concerned about betraying Maguire, and has been sending Meyer “texts and emails and buying her jewelry.”

“Being single again isn’t as much fun as he hoped, and he can’t get Meyer out of his mind,” adds the publication’s questionable source, who further contends that Maguire’s ex has been brushing off Affleck’s advances towards her. But Gossip Cop looked into the story, and we can exclusively reveal the truth.

A rep for Affleck exclusively assures us there’s “no truth” to the tabloid’s claim that he’s pursuing Maguire’s ex. A mutual pal of ours and Meyer also tells us the magazine’s story is bogus. Of course, the Enquirer has been repeatedly publishing phony reports about Affleck since he split from Garner nearly two years, so this latest piece of fiction comes as no surprise.

Gossip Cop recently busted the outlet for wrongly reporting that Garner put Affleck through “booze boot camp.” We also previously debunked the magazine’s inaccurate story about Affleck and Garner having a fourth baby to save their marriage. This latest article is simply more lies from the frequently discredited tabloid.
