Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger’s romance has been the subject of many bogus tabloid stories as of late. Gossip Cop has debunked several false articles about the newly-engaged couple. Here are five wrong rumors.

Earlier this week, Gossip Cop busted OK! for wrongly reporting that Katherine’s dad, Arnold, wasn’t a fan of her fiancé when they first started dating, but the actor managed to win him over. That simply wasn’t the case. The couple has been dating for seven months, but Pratt was spotted spending time with Katherine’s dad for the first time in November. People magazine noted at the time, “Arnold seemed very pleased to spend time with Chris. It was obvious that they got along and enjoyed getting to know each other.” Additionally, Arnold gave a shoutout to Pratt on Twitter back in 2015, indicating he was a fan of the actor years before he started dating his daughter.

Gossip Cop called out NW earlier this week for falsely claiming Pratt’s ex-wife, Anna Faris, believed he was rushing to marry with Schwarzenegger just “so they can sleep together.” Both the actor and his fiancé are devout Christians, and according to the magazine, they’re “saving themselves for their wedding night.” Irrespective of their religious views, the idea that Faris is upset about her ex-husband’s engagement simply isn’t true. In reality, Faris congratulated Pratt and Schwarzenegger on their engagement after the actor announced the news on Instagram. “I’m so happy for you both!! Congratulations!” the actress commented on his post.

NW made up a similar story earlier this week alleging that Faris was “furious” over Pratt’s engagement because she had been planning to announce her own engagement to boyfriend Michael Barrett. The magazine further contended that the actress felt her ex was intentionally trying to “steal her thunder” by announcing he’s getting married. However, Faris actually gushed about Pratt’s engagement on her podcast “Anna Faris Is Unqualified.” She said on the show, “Chris texted me this morning and he was like, ‘I proposed to Katherine last night.’ I was like ‘Ah! That’s amazing.’” She added, “I knew that it was going to happen. I love her, and I love him, and I’m just so happy that they found each other.”

Last month, Gossip Cop corrected OK! after the magazine prematurely reported that Pratt and Schwarzenegger were engaged and having a baby. Of course, the actor proposed to his fiancée a little over a week ago, and wasn’t engaged in December, as we rightly said at the time. As for having a child together, that aspect of the story still remains untrue. The author and lifestyle blogger isn’t pregnant.

And finally, Gossip Cop busted Life & Style last August for falsely claiming Pratt and Schwarzenegger were headed for a split over the actor’s busy work schedule. The publication’s report was based on claims from an anonymous and untraceable “source,” but Pratt’s rep went on the record in August to dismiss the story. Here’s an example of the passage of time completely disproving a phony tabloid story. Far from breaking up, Pratt and Schwarzenegger are headed down the aisle.
