Is Amal Clooney “playing matchmaker” for Jennifer Aniston? That’s the claim in one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop can debunk it.

Aniston visited George Clooney and his wife at their Lake Como villa last month, and according to Life & Style, the actress asked the human rights lawyer to help her “find the man of her dreams.” A supposed source tells the magazine, “Amal knows plenty of intelligent, sexy, successful men who would jump at the chance to date Jen, and has been busy compiling a list of eligible bachelors.”

The alleged insider further contends that Amal advised Aniston to stop dating actors following her failed marriages to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux. “Amal told her she should date someone who works behind the scenes,” adds the questionable tipster. “Jen’s ready to get back out there. She completely trusts Amal’s judgment.”

This premise is simply fabricated. People, a much more reliable celebrity news outlet than Life & Style, reported earlier this month that Aniston “isn’t concerned about dating.” The reputable publication added, “She is happy to focus on work.” The actress does in fact have a very busy schedule career-wise, with multiple Netflix movies and an Apple series in the works.

Additionally, Gossip Cop frequently calls out Life & Style for making up stories about the actress’s post-split love life. Last month, the tabloid falsely claimed that Aniston wanted to date a younger male star to get revenge on Theroux. The list of famous suitors was said to include Zac Efron, Chris Evans, Harry Styles and Scott Eastwood. That article was published weeks after the actress visited Amal’s home in Italy, but made no mention of the human rights lawyer getting involved and telling Aniston to date someone “behind the scenes.”

Another example of the magazine’s inconsistent narratives is a false article from March saying Aniston’s celebrity friends were setting her up with “non-famous men.” As time has shown, the actress has remained single since her separation earlier this year. It’s also becoming clear that the tabloid enjoys pushing a phony narrative about Aniston’s famous pals “playing matchmaker” for her.

The outlet is no more trustworthy when it comes to accurately reporting about the human rights attorney. Earlier this month, Gossip Cop debunked the tabloid’s cover story claiming that Amal and George were “trapped in a bad marriage” consisting of “bitter fights, cold silences and humiliation.” Naturally, this latest article never mentions Amal’s nonexistent marriage crisis. That’s because there’s no truth to it, and the same goes for this latest report involving Aniston.
