A tabloid claims Meg Ryan is calling off her wedding to John Mellencamp after getting a botched nose job. The story is entirely false. Gossip Cop can correct it.
According to the Globe, the actress underwent a few nips and tucks in preparation for tying the knot, but the plan "backfired big-time." An alleged insider maintains that Ryan's nose appeared "pinched and narrow" when she attended Paris Fashion Week last month, adding, "There's something seriously off with that sniffer. Her wonky nose was the talk of the town."
The alleged insider adds, "Bless Meg, she just wants to look her best for her wedding day, but she's gone the wrong way about it." The anonymous tipster goes on to say that Ryan has now postponed her marriage plans. "She just wants everything to be perfect for her big day, and that includes her face," adds the seemingly phony source.
The tabloid's story is based on claims from an untraceable "insider," but separate reps for both Ryan and Mellencamp call it an "absurd fabrication." Spokespeople for both the actress and the musician confirm they haven't pushed back wedding plans due to a plastic surgery mishap.
Earlier this month, in fact, Ryan said in an interview with InStyle magazine that she's "going to get married at some point," but "for now this engagement thing is a state of grace." The actress got engaged to Mellencamp last year and simply isn't rushing down the aisle. The couple didn't have a wedding in the works, so nothing has been postponed. It should be noted, Gossip Cop looked at photos of the actress at Paris Fashion Week last month and her nose didn't look any different than it has in the past.
It should also be mentioned, this isn't the first time that Gossip Cop has had to debunk a false story surrounding the actress's wedding plans. Last year, we busted the Globe's sister outlet, the National Enquirer, for wrongly reporting Tom Hanks would be walking Ryan down the aisle.
Ryan wasn't even engaged to Mellencamp at the time that story was published, but the magazine insisted she'd be getting married in South Carolina that fall, and Hanks would play a major role in the ceremony. The fictional scenario clearly didn't pan out.
This also wouldn't be the first time we've had to shoot down a false report involving the actress's appearance. Gossip Cop previously called out the Enquirer for making up a story about Ryan "battling an anorexia nightmare." This latest article is more nonsense.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
