Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are on vacation, but it’s not a “desperate trip to save their marriage.” Gossip Cop can bust this sensationally wrong claim. We can also explain how it’s part of a pattern.

According to RadarOnline, Aniston is “pulling out all the stops now that her second marriage is slowly crumbling.” How so? “This Wednesday in Cabo San Lucas, the Hollywood beauty stripped down for husband Justin Theroux, and showed off her fit body in a teeny black bikini,” writes the webloid, asking, “Are the two trying to rekindle the flame?” To be clear, the site is claiming that because Aniston is wearing a bathing suit in a resort city known for its beaches, she must be trying to save her relationship.

The webloid alleges the couple “seem to believe” that “there’s nothing like the warm Mexican sun to bring back lost romance.” But, contends the outlet, though Aniston and Theroux “seemed relaxed, they seemed to keep to themselves during the steamy beach day.” That prompts the blog to ask, “Where is the love?” To be clear, the online publication is claiming that because Aniston and Theroux weren’t engaged in PDA, there must be a problem with their marriage.

To support this narrative, the site claims their relationship has “reached an all-time low” following an “explosive fight, and even predicts it’s “inevitable” they’ll “soon face a $225 million divorce.” Of course, Gossip Cop already called out the webloid’s sister outlet, the National Enquirer, for peddling a “$225 million divorce” claim for Aniston and Theroux earlier this month. Now the online publication asks its readers, “Do you think Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are headed for divorce? Was their Cabo trip their last attempt at saving their marriage?”

Well, according to RadarOnline itself, they are and it is. But it makes no sense to look to readers for the answers. Equally bizarre is that Celebrity Insider has picked up some of these claims, but seems unsure whether to believe them. “Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux, Not On The Verge Of Ending Their Marriage? Following A Fight Of Epic Proportions, They Were Spotted Vacationing In Mexico After Christmas,” reads the blog’s wishy-washy headline. Since neither outlet seems to know what’s really going on, allow Gossip Cop to set the record straight.

There was never any “fight.” The couple is on a New Year’s trip because they always take a New Year’s trip. In fact, Cabo San Lucas is often their preferred destination. Aniston and Theroux spent the holidays in the Mexican city in 2013, for example, along with other years as well. They also traveled to the locale back in February for the actress’ birthday, which led RadarOnline to similarly claim the vacation was to “fix” Aniston and Theroux’s supposedly “broken marriage.” In actuality, they were there then and are back again now simply because that’s where they like to vacation.

It has nothing to do with being “desperate” to save their marriage, and it’s ludicrous to suggest that Aniston is wearing a bikini in hopes of fixing supposed marital woes. As of right now, it’s currently 77 degrees in Cabo San Lucas. What, should she be wearing a sweater? Of course not. But RadarOnline just wanted to put a scandalous angle on the couple’s annual trip, which is a tactic the gossip media tries and fails to do every year. In fact, we debunked this same narrative almost exactly a year ago when In Touch and OK! spun such a storyline. All the while, Aniston and Theroux keep staying married and keep going on trips together. And Gossip Cop will keep busting stories like these that twist the truth.
