Derek Hough would not “kill” to date Jennifer Lopez, despite an entirely made-up story. Gossip Cop can exclusively call out this fake news story. We’re told it’s “not true.”

The repeatedly discredited HollywoodLife claims Hough is “so into” Lopez, and is now biding his time until she and Drake stop hanging out together. The often untrustworthy site further contends the “World Of Dance” costars’ chemistry is “on another level,” and that Hough wants his working relationship with Lopez to “become more romantic.” “[Hough] would kill for a chance to date her,” alleges the webloid’s anonymous and seemingly made-up source, who adds, “Derek would love to swoop in” and take Lopez from Drake.

The outlet, which has earned the nickname “HollywoodLies” for manufacturing so many fake news stories, tries to justify its entirely concocted tale by noting, “J.Lo has a history of becoming romantically entangled with men she’s worked with.” HollywoodLies has been caught MAKING UP articles at times, and this appears to be another example. It’s why the blog has has been called out for its fabrications not only by Gossip Cop, but also by a slew of stars.

In fact, there is so little semblance of the truth in the outlet’s latest story about Hough and Lopez that his own rep compared the site to the Weekly World News, which has published stories with such headlines as “Bat Boy Will Be The Next Pope,” “Bill Clinton Endorses Donald Trump,” and “Eiffel Tower Talks To Aliens.” Hough’s rep told Gossip Cop that the claim he’d “kill” to date Lopez is “bordering on Weekly World News journalism.” The spokesperson reiterates with less tongue-in-cheek that the webloid’s article is “not true.”
