One of this week's tabloids claims Jennifer Aniston is dating an unidentified Hollywood director and may already be pregnant with his baby. Gossip Cop, however, can debunk the bogus story. A rep for the actress says it's completely untrue.
"Jen's Hot New Man!" reads a headline in the latest issue of Star. The accompanying article quotes an alleged insider as saying, "Jen's set her sights on a handsome director and he's fulfilled her wildest dreams. She's smitten with him, but she's not ready to reveal his identity just yet, and her friends are buzzing that she could actually already be hiding a baby."
The questionable source goes on to say that several Hollywood types, "from actors to producers," were pursuing Aniston when she split from Justin Theroux earlier this year, but the mystery director "ended up winning her heart." It's said that the only person who knows the identity of the actress's supposed boyfriend is Courteney Cox, who "cried" when Aniston told her she found love again. "Courteney told her if the time comes, she'll throw her the best baby shower ever," adds the seemingly phony tipster.
The tabloid's story is flimsy from the start. The supposed "source" doesn't actually know the name of the director who Aniston is supposedly dating, and this "insider" only suspects she might be pregnant, despite having zero evidence to back up the claim. Regardless of what the outlet's anonymous snitch believes, Aniston's own spokesperson says on the record that she doesn't have a new boyfriend, and certainly isn't expecting a child.
Just last week, People also reported that Aniston is "very happy being single" and focused on her career for the time being. The actress is currently in Montreal shooting the Netflix comedy Murder Mystery alongside Adam Sandler. Star's tale of a mystery boyfriend and possible pregnancy is simply baseless.
Additionally, the magazine has repeatedly proven to have zero insight into the actress's love life. Gossip Cop busted the tabloid in March when it published a ridiculous cover story saying Aniston was back with Brad Pitt. The exes obviously never reunited, and this latest article fails to mention what happened to their supposed rekindling.
This also wouldn't be the first time we've called out the magazine for wrongly reporting that the actress was expecting. Last year, for example, the outlet falsely claimed Aniston was pregnant with Theroux's baby after 16 months of fertility treatments. It's becoming quite clear the tabloid's "sources" are either nonexistent or have zero knowledge about the actress's personal life.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
