Meg Ryan Broke Star Cover


Meg Ryan is NOT “broke and dumped,” despite a mean-spirited tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the allegations, which we’re told by an impeccable source are completely meritless.

The new issue of Star hit newsstands on Wednesday, alleging Ryan’s “$45 million fortune is gone” following a “wild 10-year spending spree.” In the accompanying article, the tabloid dramatically announces, “She used to be America’s sweetheart, but now her career has hit a 10-year slump, her money is running out and her longtime love just dumped her.”

Star specifically claims Ryan is in a “dismal situation” and having an “agonizing downfall” because she “burned through most of the money that she earned in her glory days.” Ryan’s alleged spending is attributed to a supposedly “lavish lifestyle,” and there’s speculation she may have to sell her homes. A so-called “source” alleges to the publication, “Now she’s gotten to the point where she’s reaching dire straits.”

And that’s not all. Star further labels Ryan as “heartbroken” in the wake of ex John Mellencamp recently stepping out with Christie Brinkley. The tabloid alleges the actress “broke down and cried” after seeing the photos. The outlet even has the gall to quote Ryan herself as supposedly saying, “I’m so humiliated! We were talking marriage.”

The problem: Each and every claim is a LIE, and that quote is 100 percent made up. A rock-solid insider tells Gossip Cop exclusively that Star’s cover story is filled with “crap,” plain and simple. Our insider points out that Ryan’s relationship with Mellencamp “has been finished for over a year,” making any romance with Brinkley a total non-issue. Furthermore, neither Ryan’s career nor her finances are suffering.

As our insider notes, “Meg just finished her first directorial effort with a movie called Ithaca that she has spent the last almost two years working on. She is at the point in her life that she is doing what she wants to do and not working just for the sake of working.” Gossip Cop is further told, “Her financial health is very good. She has always been super smart with investing her money and has done extremely well with her real estate transactions.”

And those homes of hers? “She has no plans on selling them for the time being,” our insider notes. In other words, the entire cover story is just “absurd.”
