Tom Cruise is not “preparing to marry” Vanessa Kirby, despite reports. The Mission: Impossible co-stars were falsely linked romantically earlier this year, and now the untrue rumors have returned. But Gossip Cop can again shoot down the inaccurate claims.
“Is Tom Cruise Preparing To Marry Gorgeous ‘MI6’ Co-Star Vanessa Kirby, 29?” HollywoodLife asks in a headline. Why the webloid felt including her age was a necessity for the article’s title, we don’t know. But it says in the story, “In March, we reported that the age-defying leading man had struck up a romance with his Mission: Impossible 6 co-star Vanessa Kirby, 29. Now, a source with In Touch says Tom is so crazy about Vanessa, he’s ready to get down on one knee!” Of course, the “romance” contentions from March were false. Now it’s also false that Cruise is “ready to get down on one knee.”
The site quotes from the tabloid, “Tom flipped for her work and told the other Mission: Impossible producers that he had to have Vanessa for a crucial role for the franchise’s sixth installment… They had instant chemistry, and of course she got the role… He wants to make her the next Mrs. Tom Cruise… He thinks she’s perfect to be his next wife.” The online publication even regurgitates the assertion that the actor wants to get married “by early next year.”
Naturally, HollywoodLies didn’t bother fact-checking the report before copying and pasting the allegations. Had either outlet bothered to do so, they would’ve learned that Cruise and Kirby aren’t even dating, let alone planning to wed. “They’re just co-stars,” Gossip Cop is once again assured. The wrong rumors about Cruise and Kirby dating were kick-started by In Touch and Perez Hilton in March. Then in May, RadarOnline and other outlets published similar fake news stories about Cruise and Kirby dating.
That’s also the same month In Touch claimed Cruise was vetting Kirby to become his fourth wife. Now five months later, HollywoodLies is helping the tabloid give the false impression that there’s a looming wedding. But the uncoupled pair are no more set to tie the knot now than they were earlier this year. Which is to say: Tom Cruise and Vanessa Kirby are not “preparing to marry.”
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
