Bradley Cooper has not been leaning on Jennifer Garner amid his split from Irina Shayk, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. It's totally fabricated.

"Bradley & Jen Share Secret Alone Time!" reads a headline in the latest issue of the National Enquirer. The accompanying article says the actress has been giving her former "Alias" co-star "a shoulder to cry on" following his recent breakup. The narrative was concocted simply because Garner was spotted visiting her friend's house in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, but an alleged insider says those close to the two stars also "believe their relationship is turning romantic."

Cooper and Garner have been pals since working together on "Alias" in 2001, but the outlet's supposed source says "this is their time" to become something more. However, it hardly seems like "their time" considering that the actress has been dating Cali Group CEO John Miller for around a year. Meanwhile, "Entertainment Tonight" recently reported that Cooper isn't making dating a "priority" following his split, and "is completely focused on his career and his daughter [with Shayk]."

The publication's story is also based on claims from an anonymous and unidentified tipster, but Cooper's own spokesperson is going on the record to refute it. Despite what the tabloid's so-called "source" claims, a rep qualified to speak on the actor's behalf confirms he isn't turning to Garner for emotional support, and he's most certainly not developing a romance with her.

Just last month, Gossip Cop busted the Enquirer for making up a similar story about Cooper "crying on Lady Gaga's shoulder" amid his split from Shayk. The premise wasn't true when it applied to the actor's A Star Is Born co-star, and it's no more accurate in regards to Garner.

This also wouldn't be the first time we've had to debunk a bogus article surrounding the "Alias" co-stars. Earlier this week, in fact, Gossip Cop shot down a phony story about Cooper and Garner being "more than friends." That report also emerged after the actress stopped by the actor's home, which the magazine described as a "secret date." It was nothing of the sort.

Last year, In Touch concocted a less scandalous, yet equally untrue story about Garner giving Cooper cooking lessons. The gossip media doesn't seem to know much about the pair's dynamic, so it prints fiction about them instead. This latest article surrounding the former TV co-stars is another example.
