Jennifer Garner is not heartbroken over Josh Duhamel supposedly getting cozy with Megan Fox, despite a tabloid report that's wrong on every level. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this story. The entire narrative is based on lies.
According to OK!, Garner is suffering another "romantic letdown" after sparking a relationship with Love, Simon co-star Duhamel, who's now allegedly pursuing Fox on the set of their upcoming movie, Think Like a Dog. "Josh has had a crush on Megan since the beginning," a so-called "source" tells the magazine. "They starred in two Transformers movies together, and he goes gaga when he gets to do a scene with her."
The outlet's questionable insider goes on to say that Garner wasn't exactly blindsided by the situation, despite being upset. "After everything Jen's been through, she isn't naive. She wasn't throwing her eggs all in one basket," adds the seemingly phony tipster. "She likes Josh and thinks he's handsome and very sexy, but she's telling friends that maybe this is a sign she should step back."
There's nothing remotely true about any of this. For starters, Garner and Duhamel laughed off dating rumors while promoting their movie in March. Their denial came on the heels of Gossip Cop debunking countless stories about the two being a couple. The Love, Simon co-stars have never been romantically involved, so this latest article is provably untrue from the start.
The second aspect of the tabloid's story is no more accurate. Gossip Cop called out NW earlier this week for falsely claiming that Duhamel wanted to start dating Fox, who happens to be married with three children. The actor's own rep assured us the two have a friendly and professional relationship. Meanwhile, "Entertainment Tonight" recently reported that Duhamel is currently dating actress Eiza Gonzalez. There's no love triangle between Garner and Fox.
Additionally, OK! seems to come up with random storylines on a whim. Last month, Gossip Cop busted the publication for falsely claiming that Garner was pregnant and the baby might belong to either Duhamel, Ben Affleck or a "mystery man." Tellingly, this latest report makes no mention of any pregnancy.
The pattern here is becoming fairly obvious. As soon as Duhamel starts working with an attractive female co-star, the tabloids throw him into a nonexistent romance with her. Now that it's become abundantly clear the actor isn't dating Garner, the magazine is trying to save face by claiming he dumped her for Fox. The untrustworthy outlet is just bombarding its readers with lies.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
