Jennifer Aniston did not play “matchmaker” and set up a “love connection” between Selena Gomez and Ed Sheeran, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust the story. We’re told it isn’t true.

According to the National Enquirer, Aniston invited Gomez and Sheeran to her house for dinner in an effort to set up the two single singers. A so-called “insider” tells the tabloid that Aniston had “listened to Selena pour her heart out about her troubled love life, and wanted to find her the perfect guy. The first one who came to mind was Ed!” The magazine’s supposed source goes on to add that immediately “sparks flew” between Gomez and Sheeran.

What a lovely, touching, sweet story, if only it were true. Gomez and Sheeran are friends. They are not dating, despite the tabloid’s tale. Of course, this isn’t the first time the magazine has fabricated a report about Aniston, Gomez and another guy. In March, the Enquirer claimed Gomez was the cause of a huge fight between Aniston and her fiance Justin Theroux. Naturally, Gossip Cop was the first outlet to correct the made-up story, which alleged Gomez and Theroux acted inappropriately.

Gossip Cop can also exclusively debunk the rumor that Gomez and Sheeran are dating, and that Aniston was the “matchmaker” of their romance, which is nonexistent. A source close to the situation tells us the story is flat out “false.”
