Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are not back together, despite two completely speculative and false reports. The bogus theory is emerging simply because the exes were spotted spending time together this week. Gossip Cop can debunk it.

On Monday, the estranged spouses were photographed walking in Santa Monica with their 6-year-old son Jack, and were spotted together once again the following day. The ex-couple’s public outings inspired Naughty Gossip to write an article with the headline, “Back On? Chris Pratt and Ex Anna Faris Were Spotted Together Several Times This Week.”

The blog has zero evidence to back up its assumption, but adds, “Could they be getting back together or are they just friends? Time will tell!” Actually, Gossip Cop can tell you now. The exes aren’t back together. Pratt grabbed dinner with girlfriend Katherine Schwarzenegger on Wednesday night, one day after he and his ex spent time together. Also on Wednesday, Faris was spotted out with her boyfriend Michael Barrett, who she’s been dating since last November. Naturally, the website doesn’t bother to mention that the exes are both seeing other people.

Unfortunately, OK! wrote a similarly bogus story suggesting that Pratt and Faris are “mending fences.” After noting that the exes were spotted together, the magazine asks, “What’s REALLY going on here with these two?” The unreliable tabloid further questions if the ex-couple’s outing indicates they’re “getting back together.” It doesn’t.

People reported on Thursday that Pratt and Faris “are very friendly and seem happy when they are together with their son.” E! News published a similar article confirming, “Anna and Chris are on good terms. They both have moved on and are happy in their new lives.” The exes are very amicable and work together to co-parent their young child, but they haven’t rekindled a romance. It’s ridiculous to assume that the actor and actress have romantically reconciled simply because they stepped out in public together.

Conclusion: This one’s pretty straightforward. The estranged spouses both have significant others, so they’re clearly not back together. Pratt is dating Schwarzenegger, who he met for a dinner date following the outing with his ex. Faris is dating Barrett, who was seen alongside the actress shortly after she and Pratt stepped out together. It’s clear the exes have both moved on, but remain on good terms to co-parent their son. The speculation about Pratt and Faris reconciling is provably false on every level.
