One of this week’s tabloids claims Jennifer Aniston is using a dating coach to improve her love life and find a new boyfriend. The story is completely made-up. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
A headline in the latest issue of Grazia reads, “Swipe Right For Jen.” The accompanying article quotes an alleged insider as saying, “A friend suggested she seek the advice of a professional to help her in the dating game. After her split from Justin [Theroux] she vowed to remain single, but now she’s hoping that she’ll be able to move forward.”
The supposed source continues, “As well as seeking professional advice, Jen is relying on her friends to set her up on dates.” From there, the unreliable outlet speculates that Aniston might join a dating app at some point soon. The outlet even creates a mock profile for the actress, and includes some of the qualities she’s looking for in a man. The magazine imagines that Aniston is “looking for someone who loves chilling” and watching rom-coms, including her own show “Friends,” but says “don’t bother if you’re an East Coast type, want to break into acting [and] don’t like rom-coms.”
This entire article is a work of fiction. People magazine, a much more reliable celebrity news outlet than Grazia, recently reported that Aniston “isn’t concerned about dating” and “is happy to focus on work.” The actress is in fact busy shooting an Apple TV series and has a number of other projects lined up. Meanwhile, “Entertainment Tonight” recently published a story about Aniston’s “perfectly happy single life,” saying she “feels more centered than ever because she’s not dating anyone and she’s perfectly happy.”
Additionally, Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for the actress, who tells us in no uncertain terms, “Jen does not have a dating coach.” Unfortunately, the magazine has a history of publishing phony articles about the actress’s post-split love life. For example, we busted the magazine in July for wrongly reporting that Aniston was dating Google co-founder Sergey Brin.
Just a few months prior, we had called out the tabloid for falsely claiming that Aniston was dating Will Arnett. And just shortly before that, the outlet made up a story about Aniston secretly meeting up with Brad Pitt in London. It’s clear the publication has zero insight into the actress’s love life, but instead comes up with new narratives on a whim. This latest article about Aniston hiring a dating coach is more nonsense.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
