Tom Cruise did NOT yell at the crew of his upcoming Jack Reacher movie for supposedly littering coffee cups on set, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We’re told it “didn’t happen.”

According to the National Enquirer, Cruise paid for a barista-staffed coffee tent to treat the cast and crew while filming the action sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, but his co-workers allegedly trashed the set. A so-called “spy” tells the tabloid that Cruise screamed at everyone, calling them “filthy slobs.” The outlet’s dubious source adds, “Tom, a total neat freak, spotted people littering the set with paper cups and boiled over in a steaming rant.”

In very unnatural language, the magazine’s “insider” further purports Cruise “stopped production to rage at the messy staff to clean up their messes now, howling, ‘I can’t take it!'” This seemingly manufactured source adds, “Cast and crew rushed to toss all trash ASAP. But suddenly, everyone was fighting a wild impulse to burst out laughing when Tom, who had turned away to talk to an exec, was blindsided by a bit actor who mistakenly eyeballed Tom’s own cup of joe for trash and tossed it in the garbage.” The questionable “insider” concludes in fake-sounding verbiage, “So when Tom turned to grab his cup, it was buh-bye, brew!”

Despite how fabricated the tabloid’s quotes and account of events sound, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us this supposed incident simply “didn’t happen.” Interestingly enough, this isn’t the Enquirer’s first false story from the set of Cruise’s upcoming movie.

Gossip Cop recently busted the magazine for wrongly reporting that Cruise celebrated his birthday on the Jack Reacher set, but refused to eat a cake that was “tailor-made” for him. And shortly after that piece of fiction, Gossip Cop called out the outlet for falsely alleging Cruise was quitting Hollywood and moving to Scientology’s Florida headquarters. This latest story about the movie star is just more nonsense from the frequently unreliable publication.
