A ridiculous new tabloid report alleges Ben Stiller hired people to spy on his estranged wife, Christine Taylor, while she was away working on a TV or movie set. Gossip Cop looked into this unlikely story, and we can exclusively reveal the truth.

As Gossip Cop reported, Stiller and Taylor separated last month after 17 years of marriage. The National Enquirer is now claiming that the comedic actor’s jealousy and paranoia led to their split. “Ben told friends he felt like he was out of his league with Christine,” a supposed “source” tells the magazine. “His worst nightmare was that she’d leave him one day for a taller, hotter man.”

The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “Whenever Christine was out of town on a job, which wasn’t very often, Ben would inevitably recruit someone on set to spy on her.” The seemingly phony source goes on to purport that Taylor “grew tired of Ben’s drama and accusations,” and especially when he “tried to control everything she did.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a trustworthy source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us the tabloid’s far-fetched allegations are entirely “false.” Stiller never hired anyone to spy on his wife, nor was jealousy or cheating fears a factor in the couple’s breakup. Unfortunately, we’ve had to repeatedly debunk phony reasons behind the split since it was announced.

Gossip Cop recently called out the Enquirer’s sister publication, Star, for falsely claiming Stiller constantly accused his wife of cheating, prompting their separation. Shortly before that fabrication, we debunked the Enquirer’s other sister outlet, RadarOnline, for wrongly reporting that Stiller and Taylor split over “another woman.” This latest article surrounding the ex-couple’s breakup is equally bogus.
