A tabloid report claiming that Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel are “back on” is completely untrue. For starters, the two were never together in the first place. The actor and actress have both laughed off rumors about them being in a relationship, and a rep for Garner confirms to Gossip Cop this latest article is more lies.

There were countless tabloids reports earlier this year claiming that Garner and Duhamel started dating after meeting on the set of their movie Love, Simon. Gossip Cop repeatedly debunked the false narrative, which became so widespread that Garner and Duhamel themselves dismissed the romance rumors while promoting their film together. Unfortunately, that hasn’t stopped OK! from reigniting the phony premise.

Last week, the actor split from girlfriend Eiza Gonzalez after just a few months of dating, and according to the tabloid, he gave Garner a call immediately after the breakup. An alleged insider tells the magazine, “Josh realized that what they shared was too special to let slip by, so he begged Jen to give him another chance. Jen is doing this on her terms and wants to take it slow, which is fine with Josh.”

The outlet’s questionable source continues, “Jen is happy to have a man in her life again, especially someone like Josh, since he’s also going through a divorce.” The seemingly phony tipster adds, “He’s ready to prove that he can be exactly the kind of guy she’s looking for and has vowed that he’s not going to lose her again.”

Considering that Garner and Duhamel never dated in the first place, the tabloid’s claim that they’re “back on” is clearly untrue. Still, Gossip Cop checked in with Garner’s spokesperson, who confirms that the two were never an item and aren’t one now. The magazine’s article is based on an anonymous “source” and a provably untrue storyline, but the actress’s rep is going on the record to dismiss it.

It should also be noted, OK! has a very poor track record when it comes to the actress’s love life. Gossip Cop busted the magazine in April for falsely claiming that Garner was pregnant with a baby belonging to either Duhamel, Ben Affleck or a “mystery man.” As time has shown, the actress isn’t expecting a child, nor is she in a romantic relationship with Duhamel, her estranged husband or any “mystery man.” It seems the unreliable outlet decided to link Garner and Duhamel again now that he’s newly single, but the narrative remains untrue.
