Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost’s relationship is frequently the subject of false tabloids stories. Gossip Cop has debunked several phony articles about the couple. Here are five wrong rumors.

Gossip Cop busted Star last week for falsely claiming that the actress was nervous about spending the holidays with her boyfriend’s parents. The magazine said Christmas was “a big deal” at Jost’s house, and Johansson was worried about making a good impression with his parents. In reality, Johansson and Jost spent the holidays together in Argentina. The couple celebrated Christmas with a romantic getaway for just the two of them, proving that the magazine’s article was fabricated.

Earlier last month, Gossip Cop called out Star for wrongly reporting that the “Saturday Night Live” star proposed to Johansson over Thanksgiving. The magazine also claimed that the two were in the process of planning their wedding. Considering the outlet gave zero details about when and where the ceremony would take place, we were quite suspicious of the story. The article was also based on claims from an anonymous and untraceable “source,” but the actress’s rep told us on the record that she and her boyfriend weren’t engaged. That remains the case.

Last November, Star made up a story about Johansson wanting her boyfriend to quit “SNL” and devote more time to her. The magazine contended that the actress asked Jost to quit his TV show and go on the road with her as she travels for work. There were a couple of red flags in the magazine’s phony story. For starters, Johansson primarily lives in New York City, where “SNL” is taped. Also the actress’s next project doesn’t have a production start date yet, so it doesn’t appear she’s leaving town soon. Around the same time the article emerged, Johansson and Jost went on a date night at a NYC gala, where they were joined by several of the comedian’s “SNL” colleagues. The actress also frequently attends afterparties for the sketch show, so she’s clearly a fan of both the comedy series and her boyfriend’s co-workers.

Gossip Cop corrected the New York Post last August after the newspaper wrongly reported that Johansson and Jost were buying an $8 million condo in the Hamptons. The story was written after the couple was spotted at a residential area, which also doubles as a luxury resort. Despite the outlet claiming the two went “house-hunting,” Johansson’s rep explained that they visited a spa on the property and didn’t tour any of the residences. The actress’s spokesperson added, ““They never looked at a condo. They went there to get a massage.” As time has proven, the two never purchased a Hamptons home.

And finally, Gossip Cop busted the National Enquirer in October 2017 for wrongly reporting that Johansson and Jost were “rushing to the altar.” We debunked the premise when it first emerged, and the couple still isn’t engaged as of January 2019. Here’s an example of the passage of time completely disproving a bogus tabloid story.
