Jack Black did NOT ban cheeseburgers from his movie sets, despite an absurd new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this story. We’re told the report is “ridiculous.”

According to Star, the actor-comedian is literally addicted to cheeseburgers. A supposed insider tells the tabloid Black lacks self-control and “if they’re around, he’ll eat one – or three. All his work at the gym just goes right out the window.” The magazine’s so-called “source” goes on to say Black is “determined to break his addiction,” but the only foolproof solution he could think of was to ban cheeseburgers entirely from his movie sets, including not allowing crew members to eat them, because “he literally can’t keep away” from the fast-food staple.

The tabloid’s source says Black has tried to keep a sense of humor about the cheeseburger ban, claiming he laughs about it and tells people on the set, “You wouldn’t bring a booze truck to a set with an alcoholic.” The magazine’s seemingly bogus insider concludes, “For some people it’s pills, for Jack it’s cheeseburgers!”

If this cheesy report sounds like nonsense, that’s because it is 100 percent pure grade B.S. Black’s rep exclusively tells Gossip Cop that the Star story is “ridiculous.” With 2015 drawing to a close, Gossip Cop sincerely hopes the tabloid gets some meatier sources in the coming year.
