Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are not starting a dog fostering and adoption business, contrary to a report published on Wednesday. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story.

The article in question can be found in the new edition of OK!, under the headline, “Jen & Justin’s Animal Attraction.” To entice readers, the tabloid begins its tale with a bit of a bait-and-switch. “News flash: Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have finally started a family! Their bundles of joy just have four legs instead of two,” writes the gossip magazine.

A so-called “friend” claims to the outlet that after adopting a dog together a few years ago, Theroux “started calling her their ‘baby’ as a joke. But they got involved in animal rescue, and now they have plans to foster 10 dogs at a time on their property, working with professionals to train them and help get them adopted.” The publication’s supposed source adds that the couple’s three pooches “have given them so much, they want to give back,” and now “shelters are dying to work with them.”

But this purported “friend” is either misinformed or the tabloid made up this “project to tackle together.” While Aniston and Theroux have fostered dogs in the past, Gossip Cop has learned they typically only did so with one dog at a time, as is common. And a rep exclusively tells us that these alleged plans to start a full-scale operation fostering 10 dogs at a time for adoption is just “nonsense.”

It’s also eyebrow-raising that the outlet began this untrue story with the line, “News flash: Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have finally started a family!” The magazine is conveniently ignoring the countless times it wrongly claimed Aniston was pregnant, including a cover story nearly a year ago that falsely alleged the actress was “having a girl.” Here’s a real news flash: OK! doesn’t know what it’s talking about when it comes to Aniston and babies or Aniston and dogs.
