Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are planning to move in together soon, but they're not considering it a "trial marriage," despite a bogus new report. The article also maintains the couple is currently planning their wedding, but it's all inaccurate. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.
The singer and MLB player are apartment hunting in New York City, which has prompted RadarOnline to concoct a phony article about their reasons for moving in together. "They're looking at this as a trial marriage," a so-called "insider" tells the site. "If all goes well, it might even lead to the real thing — the altar. Jen's been pushing for this. She wants them to be a family together."
The outlet's questionable source further purports to have details about the couple's supposed wedding plans, saying, "So they want their big day to be as grand and extravagant as possible. They're calling it 'the wedding of the decade!' J.Lo's sold on the idea of a three-day event, with famous friends performing the music, and a ton of activities for guests, who would fly in from all over the world." The seemingly phony insider adds, "The likely venue is the Hamptons, either early next year or by next summer at the latest. Most important is getting the dates reserved and into their A-list pals' diaries."
Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Lopez, who confirms she's looking for a place with her boyfriend, but dismisses the idea of a "trial marriage." We're further told the pair aren't in the wedding planning stage of their relationship either. Lopez and Rodriguez's relationship is going strong, so it's entirely possible they could walk down the aisle one day, but the site's take on the situation is simply phony.
Of course, RadarOnline has been publishing bogus reports about the pair ever since they started dating around eight months ago, so this latest fabrication isn't surprising. Gossip Cop previously busted the webloid for falsely claiming Lopez's mom hates Rodriguez. We also debunked the site's absurd article alleging Lopez gave Rodriguez a "strict list of rules" to follow in order to date her. This latest story is more fiction from the repeatedly discredited outlet.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
