Was Jennifer Lopez really rude to one of her fans during a meet-and-greet? That’s the bogus story in one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop looked into the situation, and we can set the record straight.
“J. Lo Has Just A Sec For Adoring Fans!” reads a headline in the latest issue of the National Enquirer. The accompanying article quotes a so-called source as saying, “Arrangements had been made for Jennifer to meet one of her biggest fans and video the experience. Events like these usually go great, but Jen walked in and screamed, ‘It’s [expletive] cold in here. I literally have five minutes!”
The alleged insider goes on to say that during the meet-and-greet, one of Lopez’s assistants “pulled out a stopwatch and started the countdown.” The questionable source adds, “To make matters worse, Jennifer asked, ‘Are you a real fan or a fake one?'”
The magazine’s phony article provides very few details about the alleged incident. The outlet doesn’t bother to mention exactly when and where it took place or why the singer decided to film a meet-and-greet in the first place. It’s worth noting that Lopez’s It’s My Party tour kicks off in June, so if she were going to schedule some sort of a fan encounter, she’d presumably do it after one of her concerts. The singer is currently busy shooting her upcoming movie Hustlers.
Despite the magazine’s report being vague and lacking logic, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to Lopez, who tells us the incident described in the article simply never happened. Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by the tabloid’s made-up story. The Enquirer has spent a whole lot of time publishing fiction about the singer’s relationship with Alex Rodriguez.
Earlier this month, Gossip Cop busted the outlet for falsely asserting Lopez was dumping Rodriguez over cheating allegations made against him by Playboy model Zoe Gregory, who told a tabloid the former baseball star propositioned her over text. Gregory didn’t provide any proof to back up her unsubstantiated claims, and we were assured Lopez was paying zero attention to them. As time has proven, the singer and her fiance are still very much together.
Back in October, Gossip Cop called out the publication for wrongly reporting Rodriguez felt “trapped” by Lopez and wanted to date other women. Considering that the former Yankee proposed just a few months later, it’s clear there was no truth to the narrative. The same goes for this latest tale about Lopez being rude to a fan during a meet-and-greet.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
