Nicole Kidman is not warning Amber Heard not to date Sean Penn, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We're told there's no truth to it.
Earlier this month, Heard and Penn were reportedly spotted having dinner at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles, prompting rumors they're a new couple. It should be noted, it hasn't been confirmed whether or not the two are actually an item. Woman's Day is now claiming that Kidman, who co-stars with Heard in the upcoming DC Comics movie Aquaman, is telling her to steer clear of the actor, her co-star in the 2005 thriller The Interpreter.
"Nicole says Amber's playing Russian roulette with the guys she's attracted to, but Amber won't listen," a so-called "source" tells the magazine. "She insists she's a big girl and can take care of herself." Heard's marriage to Johnny Depp ended in 2016 after the actress accused him of domestic violence. Meanwhile, Penn was accused of assaulting Madonna during their relationship in the '80s. However, the singer insisted in 2015 that the allegations were false and denied that the actor ever struck her.
Still, the outlet's questionable source adds, "Amber knows all about Sean's wild ways but doesn't seem bothered by it. She says he's been the perfect gentleman so far." But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Kidman, who exclusively assures us the actress hasn't meddled in Heard's rumored relationship with Penn. We're told the tabloid's account of events is simply untrue. Aside from appearing with Heard in the upcoming Aquaman movie, Kidman has noting to do with any of this.
It's worth noting, this isn't the first time we've had to debunk a phony story surrounding the actresses. Gossip Cop previously busted a tabloid for falsely claiming that Heard was jealous of the Aquaman crew paying more attention to Kidman on set. Before that nonsense, we corrected a bogus report alleging that Kidman and Heard were feuding over their amount of screen time in the film. Gossip Cop is still trying to find out more about the nature of Heard's relationship with Penn, but regardless of their dynamic, Kidman isn't involved.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
