Casey Affleck does NOT plan on asking girlfriend Floriana Lima to marry him in an attempt to repair his image following two sexual harassment lawsuits, despite a false tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “100 percent inaccurate.”

As Gossip Cop has reported at the time, two women working on the set of Affleck’s 2010 mockumentary, I’m Still Here, accused him of sexually harassing them throughout filming, but the actor denied the allegations, and the suits were settled out of court. Despite the controversy being brought back into the spotlight during awards season, Affleck still went on to win an Oscar and Golden Globe for his performance in Manchester by the Sea. Star, however, is claiming the actor is “desperate” fix his reputation and believes an engagement will do the trick.

A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Those rumors cast a dark cloud over what should’ve been the biggest night of Casey’s career. The last thing he wants is for this to be how he’s remembered.” As Gossip Cop reported, Affleck and Summer Phoenix split after 10 years of marriage last March, but the outlet’s dubious insider says, “He’d happily propose to Floriana if it would help soften his image.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a very reliable source close to Affleck, who exclusively assures us the actor isn’t planning to propose to his girlfriend of less than six months. We’re told the tabloid’s entire report is “100 percent inaccurate.”
