Jennifer Lopez is NOT hooking up with Derek Hough, despite an inaccurate report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

“J.Lo Hot For Hough,” reads a headline in this week’s Star, which goes on to claim Hough has “swept the newly single cougar off her feet” after joining her new reality dancing competition show, “World of Dance.” A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Jennifer has had her eye on Derek for years. Her team was instructed to pay him whatever it took to lure him away from ‘Dancing With The Stars.'” “[Lopez] has arranged a few fancy dinners under the guise of ‘talking shop,'” alleges the outlet’s supposed insider, adding, “but it’s really just an excuse to get him alone.”

Gossip Cop looked into the claim, and a source close to Lopez exclusively assures us the tabloid’s report is “not true.” The singer is not hooking up with Hough, nor did she lure him away from “Dancing With The Stars” so they could get together.

Sadly, this is not the first time Star has published fake news about the singer. In September, Gossip Cop called out the unreliable magazine for falsely alleging Marc Anthony confronted Lopez for hitting on Calvin Harris. And shortly before that bogus story, we corrected the publication for wrongly claiming Lopez and Ben Affleck were secretly texting. Clearly, the misguided writers at the tabloid can’t make up their minds on with whom to link Lopez.
