Darren Aronofsky has not moved on to Suki Waterhouse, despite a slew of wrong reports. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct inaccurate claims about them being a new couple or dating. We’re told they are not involved at all.

Us Weekly kicked off the untrue reports with a piece that exclaimed, “Aronofsky has a new lady in his life.” The same tabloid noted how the director and Waterhouse were spotted cozying up at the Sundance Film Festival. A so-called “source” supposedly told the gossip magazine, “Darren and Suki met up two nights in a row during Sundance. She went over to his house, but she was incognito.” The alleged tipster added, “Darren is very into her and was telling friends how sweet and hot she was on his plane ride back.”

The International Business Times picked up that story and offered, “Looks like Darren Aronofsky has moved on from Jennifer Lawrence with a new blonde model.” Similarly, the Daily Mail reported, “It looks like Darren Aronofsky, 48, is moving on, as the director was spotted braving icy Park City, Utah on Monday with model Suki Waterhouse, 26, by his side.” The British tabloid even pointed out how they were “practically attached at the hip as they walked close to each other before grabbing some food.”

But that’s not all. The generally reliable People also gushed about how “Aronofsky got cozy with Suki.” And while they were photographed walking together in Park City, it prompted the Sidney Morning Herald to declare the two are “dating.” The Australian paper continued, “If the pictures are anything to go by, 48-year-old Aronofsky has already moved on with 26-year-old actor Suki Waterhouse.”

Relying on pictures of Aronofsky and Waterhouse walking together, however, is not necessarily reporting. And just because they were photographed together doesn’t mean Aronofsky, who last dated Lawrence, has “moved on” to Waterhouse. Gossip Cop looked into the claim and Waterhouse’s rep unequivocally said, “They are not a couple and they are not dating.” Meanwhile, Aronofsky’s rep called all the stories linking to the director to Waterhouse “crazy,” adding, “There’s no romantic involvement whatsoever.”

Aronosky was at the Sundance Film Festival with Spheres: Songs of Spacetime, a virtual reality experience that he executive produced. And Waterhouse was in Park City promoting her movie Assassination Nation. Gossip Cop will continue to monitor the situation.
