Chelsea Handler is desperately trying to become friends with Gwen Stefani? That’s the claim in one of this week’s new tabloids, which contends that the comedienne is “obsessed” with the singer and has gone to great lengths to be her pal. But Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can exclusively set the record straight.

“Chelsea’s Now Crushing On Gwen!” blares a headline in the latest issue of the National Enquirer. The accompanying article quotes a so-called “source” as saying, “Chelsea loves celebrities. She loves hanging out with super-famous people and has now latched onto Gwen. She texts and calls her all the time.” The outlet’s questionable insider goes on to say that the singer “thinks Chelsea is funny,” but “doesn’t have time to be a full-time pal to Chelsea” because she’s “in a serious relationship with Blake Shelton.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with separate sources close to those involved in this story, none of whom had heard anything about Handler making an aggressive effort to become Stefani’s friend. It seems the Enquirer concocted this bogus story simply because the TV personality hangs out with a lot of A-listers, but this tale of unrequited friendship is unfounded. In fact, this isn’t the first time we’ve had call out an outlet for arbitrarily linking Handler to another celebrity.

Gossip Cop recently busted the Enquirer’s sister outlet, RadarOnline, for falsely claiming Handler was “cozying up” to Brad Pitt in an effort to become friends. As for Stefani, the tabloid doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to accurately reporting about the singer either. We previously corrected the magazine for making up a story about her putting Blake Shelton on a no-alcohol diet to get him to lose weight. This latest article involving both Handler and Stefani is equally bogus.
