Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s relationship is frequently the subject of bogus tabloid stories. Gossip Cop has debunked countless false claims about the couple. Here are five recent wrong rumors.

Just last week, Gossip Cop busted Woman’s Day Australia for claiming that the reason Rodriguez hasn’t proposed to his girlfriend yet is that he can’t afford to buy an engagement ring. The magazine alleged that the former MLB star is running out of money due to his battle with his ex-wife over child and spousal support. The story didn’t make much sense considering that Rodriguez and Lopez purchased a $15.3 million apartment in Manhattan earlier this year. The former Yankee is also estimated to be worth around $300 million. Additionally, Rodriguez’s rep assured us on the record that the story was nonsense.

Last month, Gossip Cop called out the Globe for making up a story about Lopez wanting to become “more of a housewife” for her boyfriend. The tabloid contended that the singer planned to take a break from show business to be “the traditional partner that Alex needs.” Around the same time the phony story was published, it was announced that Lopez is producing a new cop drama for NBC. In addition to that, Lopez announced she’s working on a new song with Bad Bunny. It’s clear the singer and actress has no intention of sitting home and being a “housewife.”

Gossip Cop also corrected the National Enquirer last month after the outlet claimed that Rodriguez felt “trapped” by Lopez and wanted to start dating other women again. In reality, Lopez told E! News that Rodriguez “is so supportive and loving.” She further noted that the former baseball player frequently attended her Las Vegas residency. If Rodriguez truly felt “trapped” and wanted to be single again, he wouldn’t be going out of his way to be at his girlfriend’s side. The premise was baseless.

In August, Gossip Cop busted Life & Style for wrongly reporting that Lopez and Rodriguez had gotten engaged during a vacation to Capri and were planning a $10 million wedding. Not only did Rodriguez’s spokesperson shoot down the story, but Lopez herself has repeatedly said she’s not rushing into marriage.

And finally, Gossip Cop called out OK! in July for falsely claiming that Lopez was pregnant with Rodriguez’s baby. Around the same time the story was written, Lopez was spotted showing off her flat stomach while strolling through New York City in gym clothes. Naturally, we were hesitant to believe the claim. Our doubts were confirmed after checking in with a source close to the singer, who confirmed she wasn’t expecting. Time has proven that to be the case.
