Jennifer Lopez did not hire a private investigator to tail Alex Rodriguez, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively shoot down this fake news story. We’re told it’s simply “not true.”

After noting that Lopez plays a detective on the NBC show “Shades Of Blue,” Us Weekly questions whether she’s “bringing work home” before alleging that she hired a private investigator to follow her boyfriend. Almost comically, the tabloid then writes in parentheses that Rodriguez was “recently plagued by cheating rumors.” Curiously, the magazine makes no mention of the fact that those subsequently debunked “cheating rumors” were actually started by and published on the cover of Us Weekly’s sister publication, the National Enquirer.

A so-called “source” tells Us Weekly that Rodriguez somehow “found out” Lopez hired a private detective and “they had a huge fight.” To cover itself (from its false premise), the tabloid’s seemingly made-up “source” adds, “They’re working through it.” So basically, if anyone sees Lopez and Rodriguez acting normally or appearing to be happy, it’s supposedly because they’ve reconciled after she “resorted to subterfuge,” as the publication calls it, by hiring someone to watch the former baseball player’s every move.

But it’s all a fabrication. Rodriguez has never cheated on Lopez, nor did she ever believe it for a second. And because it never happened, Lopez also never hired a private investigator to spy on Rodriguez. It’s fake news. A longtime pal of Gossip Cop and Lopez’s assures us the latest tabloid tale is “not true.”

Remember, the entire story is predicated on an Enquirer cover that alleged Rodriguez was cheating on Lopez, an article which was subsequently busted by Gossip Cop. And it seems the glossy magazine took painstaking measures to not even mention the origin of the untrue report or its connection to the supermarket tabloid. Perhaps this mess could have been avoided if the publications involved had played detective a little more and actually fact-checked their claims.
