Lena Dunham is NOT married, Gossip Cop can exclusively report. The false marriage claims began in the tabloids when she casually referred to her longtime boyfriend Jack Antonoff’s sister Rachel, while at a Planned Parenthood party at the Sundance Film Festival, as her “sister-in-law.” While Dunham thinks of the fashion designer as family, she and the music star have not wed, her rep exclusively tells Gossip Cop.

The inaccurate marriage rumor began with a story in the New York Post and then spread to blogs and other tabloids like the Daily Mail, which noted in the headline of its article that “Dunham hints at marriage to Jack Antonoff” (see right). The New York Post even half-jokingly warned the couple, “Get that prenup signed.” But those and other similar outlets are off-base.

In October of 2014, Dunham explained in an interview with Howard Stern that the rocker is her “life partner,” and the two of them are not against marriage, but since her sister is gay, “it just doesn’t feel good to me to do something that she can’t do.” Of course, that could all change in a few months since the Supreme Court will begin to hear arguments on cases that could overturn the ban of same-sex marriages in a few states.

In the meantime, friends and relatives of Antonoff and Dunham should not feel slighted at having not been invited to their wedding. Again, Gossip Cop can confirm Dunham and Antonoff are NOT married.
