Jennifer Garner isn't leaning on Matthew Broderick amid her divorce from Ben Affleck, despite a completely fabricated report. The article claims the pair have "developed an intense bond" while working together on the upcoming animated movie, Amusement Park, but it's all made-up. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.
A so-called "source" tells RadarOnline, "Jen's in a weird place now, and Matthew's among those helping to cheer her up. He's been a real rock and told her to focus on the glass half full scenario versus what she's lost." The outlet's dubious insider continues, "Jen's always needed reassurance, and Matthew's provided that in spades. He's reminded her she's a beautiful, talented woman with Hollywood at her feet."
Of course, Matthew Broderick has been married to Sarah Jessica Parker for more than 20 years, but the seemingly phony source isn't aware of how the actress feels about the supposed situation. "What SJP makes of their blooming friendship is anyone's guess," says the questionable insider, "but Matthew insists it's perfectly platonic and has very much enjoyed bonding with Jen."
But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us the webloid's report is simply "not true." We're told Garner hasn't turned to her co-star for emotional support following her breakup. In fact, actors in animated movies generally don't record their dialogue together, so it's unclear just how often the two have even been in the same room. Regardless, we're told the site's story is bogus.
Unfortunately, RadarOnline has continuously published false reports about the actress in the wake of her split, so this latest inaccuracy isn't surprising. Gossip Cop previously called out the webloid for wrongly reporting Garner was pregnant with a "miracle baby" after reconciling with Affleck. Obviously, the actress never delivered a baby and the exes never got back together. We also recently busted the site for pretending to know whether or not Garner is "ready to date." This latest article is more nonsense from the untrustworthy outlet.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
