Colin Farrell’s friends are NOT worried about his alleged drinking problem, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We’re told it’s “totally false.”

According to OK!, the actor has been hitting the bottle lately to celebrate his recent successes, including his Golden Globe nomination for The Lobster. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “He has a beer here, a beer there – enough to get a good buzz going.”

The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to say that during awards season, “Colin’s going to be in lots of rooms with celebrities who are carousing, and his team is just praying he doesn’t let it get out of control.” The questionable source continues, “He’s never been able to completely bury his issues with drinking. Colin has tried quitting booze so many times people have lost count.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Farrell, who tells us the actor is “sober and has been for over 10 years.” We’re assured the allegations about his friends being concerned about his drinking is “totally false.” Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by the tabloid’s bogus claim. Gossip Cop previously busted the magazine for wrongly reporting that Farrell was hooking up with Kirsten Dunst. This latest story is equally untrue.
