Meg Ryan “Health Crisis” Report NOT True

Meg Ryan Health Crisis

Meg Ryan is not in a “health crisis,” despite an alarming tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the sensational and mean-spirited report.

The new issue of Star, which hit newsstands on Wednesday, states, “Her shockingly frail and fragile appearance has friends worried about Meg Ryan’s deteriorating physical condition.” The magazine says the actress “looked stunning” but “not in a good way” at the Tonys last month, and speculates about the state of her health. A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “It’s not just that she’s lost even more weight and looks scarily thin and weak.”

“Meg seems to be very depressed, like she’s carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders, which has clearly taken a toll on her physically,” continues the supposed source. “People are worried about her overall health.” Gossip Cop, though, doubts any “insider” truly concerned about Ryan would be discussing such issues with a tabloid.

Still, the outlet further quotes its alleged tipster as saying, “She acts like everything is fine, but Meg has been in a downward spiral for years. Lately, she’s been in a lot of pain, and there’s been some tearful nights. She’s also compounding her health problems by barely eating or sleeping.” A weight-loss coach, who has never even met Ryan, estimates she weighs 88 pounds.

There’s also comments on Ryan’s supposedly failing career, love life problems and family squabbles. The cover story comes less than a year after a different cruel cover from the tabloid falsely announced “Meg Ryan Broke & Dumped!” This new article even regurgitates a supposed quote from Ryan that was featured in the old piece, even though Gossip Cop had confirmed at the time that it was 100 percent made up.

Gossip Cop isn’t sure why Star is hell-bent on presenting an unflattering depiction of the actress, but it sure doesn’t match reality. A rep for Ryan exclusively tells Gossip Cop that the “health crisis” claims are “all a bunch of fabricated crap.” She’s just fine… but would probably be doing better if the tabloids left her alone.
