Caitlyn Jenner is not spoiling her brand-new puppy “rotten,” despite a tabloid report that wrongly claims she’s “spending more on the dog than herself.” Gossip Cop can reveal the truth.

According to the National Enquirer, Jenner has been giving her yellow Labrador named Bertha the “best of everything,” from dog groomers to puppy therapists. A so-called “source,” supposedly from Jenner’s “inner circle,” tells the outlet that she’s bought the dog “an array of little vests and doggy clothes,” as well as a “diamond-studded collar” and a “$2,000 Gucci travel bag.”

The magazine’s dubious insider further contends that Jenner is also making plans to build her puppy an “extravagant doghouse valued at $25,000,” equipped with a “custom-designed bathtub.” “There’s no doubt she’s filling the void left by her family, but this dog is going to leave her broke if she keeps this up,” adds the publication’s supposed source.

In June, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid’s sister publication Star when it falsely reported Jenner was spoiling her dog, so we were understandably doubtful about this similarly worded tale. Still, we fact-checked the new story. A rep for the former Olympian assures us the entire article is nothing more than “fiction,” and another insider also tells Gossip Cop it’s untrue. As we noted before, Jenner is undoubtably taking care of Bertha, but the over-the-top expenditures for the dog that are alleged in the magazine’s article are far-fetched and inaccurate.

This is not the first time the supermarket tabloid has barked up the wrong tree with her. In the past, Gossip Cop corrected the publication when it wrongly claimed Jenner was banned from the “Ellen DeGeneres Show.” And shortly before that tall tale, we debunked the magazine for falsely alleging Jenner was crushing on Boy George. Much like those reports, this latest article about her spoiling her dog is equally untrue.
