Chris Pratt is not dating a "mystery blonde" who he was spotted grabbing coffee with in Los Angeles, despite an inaccurate tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We're told it's not true.
Pratt was photographed chatting with an unidentified woman at an L.A. Coffee Bean in late February, which has prompted Star to assume the actor has a new girlfriend following his split from estranged wife Anna Faris. A so-called "pal" of the actor tells the magazine he initially "needed to time to process the divorce," but now he's eager to move on.
The outlet's alleged insider adds, "Chris isn't sure he wants something serious right now, but he's putting himself out there." But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us Pratt isn't dating the woman who he was seen with at the coffee shop. We're told the claim otherwise is "completely false." From what Gossip Cop understand, she's one of the actor's employees.
Of course, we're not particularly surprised by the publication's phony article. Gossip Cop has repeatedly called out Star for making up stories about the actor in the wake of his separation last August. We recently busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Pratt and Faris were having a "co-parenting crisis" over their young son.
Gossip Cop also called out the unreliable outlet when it made up a bogus story about Pratt's friends pushing him to Jennifer Lawrence, his co-star from the 2016 sci-fi movie Passengers. Meanwhile, we also corrected Star's sister publication, the National Enquirer, for wrongly reporting Pratt was dating former "Parks and Recreation" co-star Amy Poehler.
It should be noted, Pratt has been largely focused on his 5-year-old son Jack in the time since he and Faris split. The actor recently took the young boy to watch monster truck racing at a Monster Jam event in Los Angeles. Pratt has also been busy working as of late, with multiple films in the can and several more projects in the pipeline. But regardless of how much time the actor has allotted to dating, the "mystery blonde" at the Coffee Bean simply isn't his girlfriend.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
