George Clooney and his wife Amal Clooney are NOT on the verge of a divorce because he was supposedly “flirting” with Scarlett Johansson, despite a tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this rumor as false.

The inaccurate claim was started in the National Enquirer, an outlet that has repeatedly been wrong about Clooney. According to the latest from the tabloid, Clooney was read “the riot act” by Amal because he was allegedly “flirting” with Johansson on the set of their movie Hail Caesar! A so-called “source” tells the magazine that Clooney’s behaving “like a single man” around his co-star was the “last straw” for Amal, who’s ready to divorce the actor just five months after getting married.

The Enquirer also alleges that Clooney missing Amal’s birthday to shoot scenes with Johansson caused a “huge screaming match” between the couple. The tabloid’s supposed “source” says, “[Amal] ignored all of his calls and texts, and wouldn’t talk to him for days.”

Clooney and Johansson, who’s wedded to French journalist Romain Duriac with whom she has a baby, are both happily married. They are NOT flirting. A Clooney insider assures Gossip Cop the Enquirer tale is entirely “fabricated.”

Of course, we’re not surprised. This is the same tabloid that wrongly reported the Clooneys were adopting three children and recently erroneously claimed Amal was upset with how much time her husband was spending with Cindy Crawford, the wife of his buddy and business partner Rande Gerber. Wouldn’t it be nice if the Enquirer started flirting with the truth?
