A tabloid claims Charlize Theron is pregnant and the baby might belong to Brad Pitt, Adam Driver or Zac Efron. Gossip Cop can debunk the absurd story. The actress isn't expecting a child, and she's never been romantically involved with any of those actors.
"Charlize's Baby Daddy Riddle" reads a headline in the latest issue of NW. The accompanying article claims the actress has been sporting a baby bump, and now one of her "reported flings is in for quite a shock." "She's gained weight, but only around the middle," a supposed source tell the outlet. "I'd say she was pregnant for sure - the only thing is, she hasn't had a proper relationship in forever. If she is pregnant, it would've been an accident, so the famous father will be floored."
The alleged insider goes on to say that Theron has been enjoying "no-strings-attached hookups" with a number of famous men. Pitt, who she worked with on a campaign for Breitling watches last year, is said to be one of those suitors. Driver, who was also involved in that ad campaign, is another name mentioned as the possible father. For good measure, Efron is thrown into the equation. Theron has never even worked with Efron, but they did appear on the same episode of The Graham Norton Show earlier this year.
The unknown tipster adds, "Charlize has had her pick of the hottest actors. But whoever she's bedded, she's keeping mum. If she's fallen pregnant, she'd totally go through with having the child. She would see it as a miracle!"
The tabloid's report is pure insanity. Theron dismissed the rumors she dated Pitt on The Ellen Degeneres Show in October. "I had an entire relationship I didn't even know about," the actress joked. In a recent interview with the New York Times, Pitt noted, "I don't know how many women they've said I've been dating the last two or three years, and none of it's true." The two movie stars have never hooked up.
Meanwhile, Driver has been married to actress Joanne Tucker since 2013. NW is either unaware of this or is suggesting he cheated on his wife, which is baseless. Efron's inclusion in this bogus article is just random. Still, Gossip Cop reached out to a source close to Theron, who confirms the magazine's article is nonsense. The actress isn't pregnant, nor is she having secret flings with famous men.
It should be noted, Theron wore a fairly revealing dress to the Los Angeles premiere of Bombshell last week. The actress doesn't have a hint of a baby bump in any of the red carpet pictures. That's because she's not expecting.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
