Colin Jost is a "party animal" who is "hiding" his "warped past" from Scarlett Johansson. At least that's what a certain webloid wants readers to believe. But Gossip Cop can expose this story as just the latest tale made up about the "SNL" star in recent weeks.
"Wild Thing! Scarlett Johansson's New Love Colin Jost Is A 'Party Animal,'" reads a headline from RadarOnline, which asserts the actress has "fallen hard" for the "clean-cut" comedian, "but there could be 'warning signs' ahead." Why? "Because friends of handsome Jost say he's hiding a warped past from the 35-year-old 'Avengers' star," alleges the site. A so-called "source" is quoted as saying, "Scarlett sees herself as a bit of a party girl who, when she's in the mood, can keep up with the boys, but Colin is just on a different level."
"He runs with a crew of hard-partying writers from 'SNL' and other shows that shoot in New York, and these guys are going out nearly every night of the week," the supposed claims to the outlet, which predicts "there could be dark clouds on the horizon for 'ScarJo'" because Jost "and his buddies can get pretty wild." Adds the alleged tipster, "Colin and his gang have a reputation for their toxic ways and tendency to hit on every girl at the bar. Scarlett likes the bad boys [but] she doesn't know what she's in for here."
It's actually amusing that RadarOnline wants readers to think it knows more about Jost that Johansson herself does. And consider what has been "reported" recently by its sister publications. Less than two weeks ago, Star claimed Jost was ready to propose to Johansson. And just days ago, the National Enquirer alleged Johansson was "rushing to the altar." Neither tabloid mentioned Jost being a "party animal" and "hiding a warped past" from the actress. And the webloid now says nothing about the pair planning to wed.
The only consistency here is that one publishing company has fixated on Jost and Johansson with one inaccurate, made-up tale after another. In fact, Gossip Cop is exclusively told that this latest one is "obviously not true," just like the others. While it's still early days in their romance, the notion that Jost is "hiding" his true personality from Johansson is false, we're told.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
