Is Kate Mara banning Joaquin Phoenix, who’s dating her sister Rooney Mara, from her upcoming wedding? That’s the claim in one of this week’s new tabloids, but Gossip Cop has the truth.

Kate is engaged to actor Jamie Bell, who she met while filming the 2015 Fantastic Four reboot, and the couple is in the early stages of planning their wedding. According to OK!, however, the actress doesn’t want her sister’s famous boyfriend at the nuptials. “Kate thinks [Joaquin] is a weirdo,” a supposed “source” tells the magazine. “She’s afraid his gloom-and-doom vibe will spoil her day.”

The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to contend that Kate thinks Phoenix is a “loose cannon” who “doesn’t mix well with her family” because “they own football teams, while he doesn’t care about sports.” The seemingly phony source adds, “She wants Rooney to be having fun with her rather than tending to Joaquin,” but Rooney is “working hard to change Kate’s mind fast.”

Gossip Cop looked into this supposed wedding drama, and a reliable source close to the situation exclusively assures us the tabloid’s story is “absurd.” We’re told Phoenix isn’t banned from Kate’s wedding, nor does she dislike him. This is simply a non-issue.

It should be noted, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to call out a magazine for falsely claiming the actor has an off-putting personality. Gossip Cop previously busted OK!’s sister publication, Star, for alleging Phoenix was losing movie roles because he has a bad attitude. We also debunked that outlet’s inaccurate report claiming Kate was dating Shia LaBeouf. This latest article is equally untrue.
