Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon Feuding On Set Of TV Series?

Are Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon really feuding on the set of their upcoming Apple TV+ series “The Morning Show”? One of this week’s tabloids claims the two actresses have been at odds while shooting the project. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we’ve learned the truth.

According to Life & Style, Witherspoon has been rubbing Aniston the wrong way on the set of their upcoming show. An alleged source tells the outlet, “It’s no secret that Reese is a bit of a control freak, and as per usual, she’s taking charge. Jen can’t stand it, though. She and Reese not only share top billing, they’re also co-executive producers.”

The supposed insider goes on to say that Witherspoon “is acting more like Jen’s boss than her colleague” and is “calling all the shots” on set. The questionable tipster adds, “It’s pretty clear to everyone on that set, from the cast to the crew, that Jen’s miserable and feels like her voice is being stifled.”

None of this is remotely true. In reality, the two actresses have been friends for years. Just this week, in fact, E! News published an article detailing the history of Aniston’s and Witherspoon’s friendship. The story came on the heels of Monday’s Apple event, during which the two women appeared together to promote their upcoming series, as well as the Apple TV+ streaming service.

Additionally, the magazine’s story is based on claims from an anonymous and untraceable “source,” but Gossip Cop checked in with Aniston’s spokesperson, who tells us on the record that it’s nonsense. Despite what the outlet’s so-called “insider” says, a rep qualified to speak on the actress’s behalf confirms she’s not fighting with Witherspoon on set.

It’s worth noting, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to debunk a story surrounding nonexistent tension between the two actresses. When their TV series was first announced back in 2017, Gossip Cop debunked a phony report about Aniston and Witherspoon battling over equal pay for the project. Reps for both stars dismissed the story, noting they’re each receiving the same salary for their roles as co-stars and co-producers.

Meanwhile, Gossip Cop previously called out Life & Style for making up a similar story about Witherspoon being in a “power struggle” with Meryl Streep on the set of “Big Little Lies.” The outlet clearly has a habit of baselessly pitting the actress against her colleagues. Gossip Cop can confirm that Aniston and Witherspoon enjoy working together and are very excited about their upcoming series.

Jennifer Lopez Wants Alex Rodriguez To Sign Prenup With A Cheating Clause?

One of this week’s tabloids claims Jennifer Lopez wants Alex Rodriguez to sign a prenup with a “cheating clause.” The story is completely made-up. Gossip Cop can correct it.

According to In Touch, “there was a catch” before the singer accepted her fiancé’s proposal earlier this month. A supposed source tells the magazine, “Before they marry, Jennifer wants him to sign an iron-clad prenup with a cheating clause to protect herself if he betrays her. She wants some assurance about their future.”

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1526939461036-0’); });

The outlet’s alleged insider adds, “She want this marriage to last and loves Alex, but with three divorces under her belt, she’s aware that sometimes the fairy-tale ending doesn’t happen.” The seemingly phony source further contends that Rodriguez believes the singer is “being ridiculous” by including a cheating provision, but “he’s willing to prove his commitment to her by signing it. He won’t let it get in the way of their marriage.”

The tabloid’s story is entirely false. Just last week, Lopez told People magazine that she and Rodriguez are “really happy” together, adding, “We have [an] appreciation for where we are in our lives today, and that’s what we’re enjoying the most.” In a subsequent interview with the publication, Lopez made a point of noting that she and Rodriguez have “had some ups and downs” in their past relationships, but they’re “not defined by our mistakes and we get back to what matters.”

In addition to Lopez herself making it clear there’s no drama in her relationship, Gossip Cop also checked in with a source close to the singer, who assures us the outlet’s report is nonsense. Lopez isn’t having any trust issues as she prepares to walk down the aisle and she isn’t demanding that a “cheating clause” be included in any prenup the two may have. A rep qualified to speak on behalf of Rodriguez also laughed off the story.

Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by the outlet’s phony article. In Touch has already proven to have zero insight into the couple’s relationship. Last August, Gossip Cop busted the outlet for falsely claiming Lopez and Rodriguez were having a “wedding and a baby.” The pair only got engaged a few weeks ago, and they’re certainly not expecting a child.

And back in April 2017, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for wrongly reporting that Lopez and Rodriguez were signing a $ 760 million prenup. The two weren’t even close to getting married at that time. It’s clear the unreliable publication just makes up fake narratives about the singer and the former baseball star.

Daniel Craig On Special Mission To Find Acne Cream For Wife Rachel Weisz?

Did Daniel Craig really go on a special mission to find a particular acne cream for his wife Rachel Weisz? That’s the bizarre premise behind a completely made-up claim in one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this phony report.

According to Star, Craig recently “raced through busy Beverly Hills boulevards on foot like a man on a mission: to find fancy zit cream.” The often debunked magazine further contends the James Bond star “raised eyebrows when he stormed into exclusive beauty shops near his swanky hotel” desperately looking for a special “high-end blemish blaster.” A so-called “source” then says in a fake-sounding quote, “Daniel sighed he’d been running all over town for his gorgeous wife, Rachel Weisz,” adding how it was “an emergency” because the actress had “run out of her go-to solution.”

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1526939461036-0’); });

There are more holes in the publication’s tale than in 007’s sports car after its been shot at by Bond villains. Among the article’s many glaring omissions are when did this supposedly happen? What’s the name of the pimple cream? Which stores did Craig visit, and what’s the name of the one where he found the medication? The reason the outlet doesn’t have any of that information is because it seemingly concocted the entire plot.

While the tabloid’s vague report is based on an unnamed, untraceable, and possibly fictitious “source,” Gossip Cop checked in with Craig’s rep, who exclusively assures us the outlet’s story is “rubbish.” It bears mentioning that the magazine asserts the acne cream expedition took place in Beverly Hills, but Craig and the rest of the cast and crew are currently in Norway, where production is beginning on the next Bond film.

Gossip Cop is not remotely surprised by the falsity of the article, since Star has been repeatedly wrong with its stories about the blond English actor. Just last month, we busted the very same outlet when it inaccurately maintained Craig was driving Weisz crazy with his extreme “James Bond” diet. That wasn’t true, nor has the magazine’s tales about him and his wife having marital strife.

For instance, Gossip Cop corrected the tabloid when it published a piece in 2017 that insisted Craig and Weisz’s marriage was in trouble. Of course, the two are still very much together, and in the summer of 2018, the couple welcomed their first child, a little girl. Much like the aforementioned stories, the latest article about Craig going on a mission all over Beverly Hills to find a particular pimple cream is also bogus.

Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas Headed For Divorce?

Priyanka Chopra Nick Jonas Divorce


Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are not headed for a divorce after just 117 days of marriage, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. The newlyweds are going strong.

According to OK!, however, the actor and the singer are quickly falling out of love now that they’re “starting to really get to know each other.” An alleged insider tells the magazine, “They’ve been fighting about everything – work, partying, spending time together. The bottom line is that Nick and Priyanka rushed into things… and now they’re paying the price. Their marriage is hanging by a thread.”

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1526939461036-0’); });

The alleged insider further contends that Jonas believed the actress was “cool and easygoing” when they got married, “but recently Nick’s seen a controlling side to her. She also has a temper – that’s something Nick wasn’t aware of until after the wedding celebrations.” The questionable tipster goes on to say that Jonas’ family is “begging him to end” the marriage as they initially thought Chopra was “this mature woman who was ready to settle down and have kids,” but they now feel she’s a party girl who “acts like she’s 21.”

From there, the seemingly phony source says a split could result in a major battle over money, adding, “There are whispers that Nick and Priyanka got married so quickly they didn’t take the time to draw up a prenup. No one wold put it past her to make things difficult for Nick should they divorce.”

However, the couple’s social media pages paint a very different (and realistic) portrait of their marriage. This past weekend, the happy spouses vacationed together in Miami along with his brothers Joe and Kevin, as well as Joe’s fiancée Sophie Turner and a few other friends. Jonas shared an Instagram photo of him and Chopra posing for a selfie during the trip, along with the caption, “You are my sunshine my only sunshine.”

Meanwhile, Chopra posted an Instagram photo in which she’s giving her husband a kiss, and added, “Making hay while the sun shines.” Not only are the spouses very much in love, but considering Jonas’ brothers joined them on the fun getaway, it would appear his family is happy with the actress as well.

As if that weren’t enough proof that the couple’s marriage is intact, Jonas took to Instagram on Wednesday to promote Chopra’s new Youtube series. Along with a poster of the new show, he wrote in the caption, “Being a world changer. Looking beautiful every step of the way. @priyankachopra you continue to amaze me!”

Despite it being evident that the spouses aren’t having marriage problems, Gossip Cop still reached out to Chopra’s rep, who confirms that the tabloid’s story is nonsense. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time OK! has attempted to create nonexistent drama between the pair. Back in December, we called out the magazine for falsely claiming Chopra and Jonas were fighting over where to live. The unreliable outlet has zero insight into the happy couple’s marriage.

Mila Kunis Warning Ashton Kutcher To ‘Grow Up’ Or She’ll Divorce Him?

One of this week’s tabloids claims Mila Kunis is warning Ashton Kutcher to “grow up” or she’ll divorce him. The story is completely untrue. Gossip Cop can debunk it.

According to the National Enquirer, the actress is accusing her husband of being an inattentive husband and deadbeat dad to their two young kids. An alleged insider tells the magazine, “Mila told Ashton that she signed up to be his wife, not his mommy – and it’s time he started acting more like a grown-up.”

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1526939461036-0’); });

One of the supposed issues, according to the outlet, is that Kutcher spends more time focusing on work than their family. “Mila is furious because she doesn’t get the sense that Ashton has the same passion about family life that he does for business,” adds the suspicious tipster. “He’s out of the house so often, she’s started to feel like a single mom.”

Another problem, alleges the “source,” is that Kutcher acts like a “perpetual teenager.” The questionable tipster doesn’t bother to elaborate on the claim, but adds, “Mila doesn’t think Ashton is serious enough. She’s let him know that he’d better be when she brings her lawyer into it.”

The tabloid hides behind an anonymous and untraceable “insider” to sell its phony story. Gossip Cop, however, checked in with Kunis’ spokesperson, who tells us on the record that it’s all nonsense. The actress’s rep, who’s qualified to speak on her behalf, assures us she’s not threatening to divorce her husband, nor has she ever accused him of being a bad dad and husband. The claim otherwise is completely baseless.

It’s worth noting, Kunis described Kutcher as “the world’s greatest husband” in an interview with E! News last year, and added, “I got a man that has got a lot of patience and is incredibly supportive of our family.” And just last month, Kunis and Kutcher were spotted packing on the PDA at an Oscars after-party.

Meanwhile, the Enquirer has already proven to have zero insight into the couple’s marriage. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Kunis was quitting Hollywood to have a third baby with her husband. The actress is still working and hasn’t had another child.

Unfortunately, the gossip media is constantly trying to create nonexistent problems in the couple’s marriage. Earlier this month, we called out the Enquirer’s sister outlet, Life & Style, for wrongly reporting that Kunis had given Kutcher a “divorce ultimatum” to either attend couple’s counseling or she’ll end their marriage. That story was also based on claims from an unidentified “source,” but the actress’s rep dismissed it as fiction. This latest article about the spouses is no more accurate.

Angelina Jolie Leaning On Colin Farrell Amid Brad Pitt Divorce?

Is Angelina Jolie really leaning on Colin Farrell amid her divorce from Brad Pitt? That’s the claim in one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop looked into the situation, and we can set the record straight.

Earlier this month, Jolie brought four of her kids to the Los Angeles premiere of Disney’s live-action Dumbo remake, in which Farrell appears. According to Grazia, the reason the actress attended the premiere is that she and the actor are back in touch after working together on the 2004 movie Alexander.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1526939461036-0’); });

A supposed source tells the magazine, “Colin and Angelina have been friends for a long time and have both come such a long way since the days when it was common knowledge in the industry that they were hooking up.” This is inaccurate from the start. In 2013, nine years after the release of Alexander, Perez Hilton published an article falsely claiming Jolie had been hooking with Farrell but ended up “settling” for Pitt. The story was completely untrue, and Gossip Cop busted it at the time it first emerged.

Still, the alleged insider tells the magazine that Jolie has reconnected with Farrell because he’s a “changed man – more into clean-living and charity than anything else since getting sober 12 years ago, and he’s a doting dad [to his two sons].” The suspicious tipster adds, “Angelina is almost a different person now from her former self, much more calm and grounded.”

The seemingly phony source goes on to say there’s no romance happening between the two stars, but she’s turning to him for support amid her split and has allowed him “back into her very guarded circle.” The so-called “insider” asserts, “They have met up several times recently. They have a supportive friendship, which is something that’s hard to find in their industry.”

In reality, Jolie simply brought her kids to the premiere of a movie that happens to feature Farrell in a role. The actress, who’s been known to bring her children to premieres, also brought the brood to the opening of The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind in New York City last month. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the actress, who assures us the tabloid’s report is simply “not true.” We’re told Jolie hasn’t been leaning on Farrell amid her divorce, and she didn’t attend the Dumbo premiere because of him. It’s worth noting, the Oscar-winner’s upcoming movie Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is also being released by Disney.

It should be mentioned, this narrative about the actress “leaning on” another celebrity amid her divorce isn’t new. Back in 2017, Gossip Cop busted Star for falsely claiming Jolie was “leaning on” Jared Leto, who also appeared in Alexander. Just two months ago, we called out OK! for making up a story about Jolie “leaning on” Natalie Portman. This latest article involving Farrell is equally phony.

Jenna Dewan Pregnant With Boyfriend’s Baby?

Is Jenna Dewan pregnant with boyfriend Steve Kazee’s baby? That’s the claim in one of this week’s celebrity magazines. Gossip Cop looked into the report, and we’re told it’s not true.

According to the new issue of NW, there are “whispers suggesting the former ‘World Of Dance’ host could be expecting a second child.” The publication then quotes the actress and dancer as saying, “I love the idea of another child… If the desire [for more kids] comes around, it will happen.” After acknowledging those remarks were made before Dewan and Channing Tatum announced they were divorcing, the outlet notes how she now has a “new man” and asks, “Could Jenna finally be ready”?

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1526939461036-0’); });

It bears mentioning the tabloid has no proof whatsoever that Dewan is pregnant with Kazee’s baby. Either the publication wholly made up the premise or perhaps the “whispers” about her expecting a second child were so low the magazine’s staffers heard it wrong. The outlet actually doesn’t even have a source feeding it that information. It appears the magazine is simply speculating based on a photo of her, her 5-year-old daughter Everly, and Kazee taking a walk in Los Angeles.

Near an arrow pointing to a picture of Dewan’s belly while out and about on March 16, the tabloid writes, “Jenna was sporting a rounder stomach than usual as she headed out in L.A. with her man.” That’s not reporting. That’s just guessing about a woman in a flowing dress, at best, and at worst it’s body-shaming. Not surprisingly, the outlet is completely off-base. A mutual friend of Gossip Cop and Dewan’s tells us the magazine’s tale is “ridiculous.”

The tabloids have been wrong before about Dewan being pregnant, as well as her romance with Kazee. Just last month, Gossip Cop busted a story that maintained Dewan and Kazee were ready to get married. In that article, it was alleged she and the Tony-winner were rushing to wed and “have kids.” At the time of that piece, Dewan’s rep mocked, “Does an eye roll count as a comment?”

And four years ago, Gossip Cop corrected one of the magazines when it falsely contended Dewan was pregnant with her and Tatum’s second child. In that phony article, a so-called “source” asserted Dewan was telling people she was “pregnant.” Of course, as we noted then, it wasn’t true.

This time around, NW has nothing to back up its inaccurate narrative. It’s just taking old quotations the actress gave to a magazine and assuming because her dress looked bulky that she may be pregnant. But, as Gossip Cop has said before, the only thing fertile here are the imaginations of the people who work at that tabloid.

Angelina Jolie Going Broke Amid Brad Pitt Divorce?

One of this week’s tabloids claims Angelina Jolie is going “broke” amid her divorce from Brad Pitt. The story isn’t at all accurate. Gossip Cop can debunk it.

According to NW, the actress is struggling to support her children as the legal fees from her divorce battle take a toll on her bank account. “Ange is strapped for cash and finding it hard to make ends meet,” says the unreliable outlet. It was recently announced that the release date of Jolie’s Disney sequel, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, had been moved up from May 2020 to October 18 of this year. The outlet contends that the actress demanded the change so she could collect her backend pay.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1526939461036-0’); });

“Ange made a strong push to get this movie done way ahead of schedule, and she knows that she stands to make a killing at the box office,” a supposed source tells the tabloid. “This is all about the money for Ange, because she needs to get the last installment check from the film now that Brad’s handouts have dried up.”

However, some reputable Hollywood trade publications have provided the real reason behind the release date change of Jolie’s upcoming sequel. Deadline noted that the pre-Halloween frame has become a lucrative date thanks to the massive opening weekend of last year’s Halloween remake. Meanwhile, Variety explained that had the Disney movie opened on its original date in May, it would have been competing with the second weekends of Fast & Furious 9 and The Spongebob Movie. The studio ultimately decided that October 18 was a more desirable release date, and the change has nothing to do with Jolie’s divorce.

It should also be mentioned, Jolie ranked at number two on Forbes’ list of the highest-paid actresses of 2018 thanks to her upfront fee of $ 28 million for the Maleficent sequel. Although the actress’s divorce has certainly been costly, the idea that she’s going “broke” simply isn’t true. Gossip Cop also checked in with a source close to Jolie, who confirms that the magazine’s story is false.

Additionally, Gossip Cop frequently catches NW making up phony narratives about the actress. When the false rumors about Pitt dating Charlize Theron emerged earlier this year, the tabloid claimed Jolie was pursuing Theron’s ex-boyfriend Sean Penn to get “revenge.” And last month, when false rumors began spreading about Pitt and Jennifer Aniston getting back together, the magazine wrongly reported that Jolie was “hooking up” with Justin Theroux for “revenge.” Neither premise was remotely realistic. This latest one is more fiction.

Katie Holmes’ Daughter Suri Ran Away From Home To See Tom Cruise?

One of this week’s tabloids claims Katie Holmes’ 12-year-old daughter Suri Cruise packed her bags and ran away from home to see her dad Tom Cruise. The story is ridiculously wrong. Gossip Cop can debunk it.

According to New Idea, Suri’s living situation at her mom’s New York City apartment has been “unstable,” so she’s decided to seek “comfort” from her estranged father. Cruise hasn’t been in contact with his little girl for several years, but a supposed source tells the magazine, “Suri has made a decision that she wants to spend more time with her dad. Now that she’s 12, she’s decided she wants to have more of a relationship with him and has really been pushing her mom to let her see him.”

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1526939461036-0’); });

The alleged insider further contends that Suri recently “decided enough is enough and took it upon herself to go and see him.” The suspicious tipster adds, “She just packed her bags and told her mom that she wasn’t taking no for an answer and demanded to see her dad.” The “insider” then notes that Cruise recently finished renovating a penthouse in Clearwater, Florida, which “has plenty of space for Suri to stay.”

The tabloid’s bogus story is based on a photo of Suri wheeling a suitcase outside of her New York apartment building earlier this month. The unreliable outlet doesn’t bother to mention that the young girl was accompanied by her mom, who was carrying luggage of her own. Suri didn’t pack her bags and flee home.

In reality, Holmes and Suri traveled together to Greece to visit a refugee camp. The outlet either fails to realize this or deceptively decided not to mention it. Either way, Gossip Cop can confirm that the 12-year-old didn’t run away from home to see her dad. The publication took a photo of Suri wheeling a suitcase and decided to create a phony narrative out of it.

Additionally, the tabloid never bothers to mention how Suri planned on finding her dad or where she was supposedly heading by herself. Cruise may have a home in Florida, but he’s been in California shooting Top Gun: Maverick for the past few months. Did the 12-year-old somehow discover her dad’s exact whereabouts and manage to book a flight without parental supervision? In addition to being false, the magazine’s story is illogical. More importantly, it’s provably untrue.

The gossip media has very little insight into the relationship between Cruise and his estranged daughter. Gossip Cop frequently debunks stories surrounding nonexistent reunions between the pair. Most recently, we busted a report about Cruise and Suri meeting up in Orlando. This latest article on the subject, which is filled with holes and makes very little sense, is more fiction.

Brad Pitt Renting Home Where He Meets Up With Jennifer Aniston?

Did Brad Pitt rent a home where he could meet up with Jennifer Aniston “away from prying eyes”? That was the premise behind a report from exactly one year ago today. Gossip Cop said it was untrue then, and it remains false to this day.

On March 26, 2018, Woman’s Day maintained Aniston and Pitt were getting together privately at a house he was renting in Los Angeles. To make its story seem more believable, the magazine alleged it had a reliable source, who shared the home was in the Hollywood hills where Pitt and the former “Friends” star could “meet up away from prying eyes.”

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1526939461036-0’); });

It was never explained how the paparazzi, who routinely follow each star around Los Angeles and even as they leave their respective houses, were never able to trail them to the supposed love shack. The tabloid had no details about the property, and instead simply hinged its tale on an unnamed and unidentifiable source. Conversely, around that time Gossip Cop was assured by reps for both Aniston and Pitt the ex-spouses were not rekindling.

Now a full 12 months have passed, and while Pitt dropped by Aniston’s 50th birthday party in February, they have not been having secret rendezvouses at some house in the Hollywood Hills or elsewhere. Significantly, since the publication of that article, the outlet hasn’t become any more accurate with its pieces about Aniston and the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star. In fact, just a week afterwards, Gossip Cop busted the very same magazine when it swore up and down on its cover that Aniston was pregnant with Pitt’s baby. Obviously that was a lie.

A few months later, Woman’s Day further absurdly asserted Pitt and Aniston got secretly married. The outlet didn’t fuss too much over the fact that he’s still married to Angelina Jolie. And then seemingly having forgotten that it had impregnated Aniston and contended she remarried her ex-husband, the tabloid went on to insist Pitt and Charlize Theron were getting engaged. In reality, as confirmed by the actor’s rep, Pitt has never even been romantically involved with the South African actress.

Lastly, Gossip Cop corrected the publication when it claimed a month ago that Pitt took Aniston on a “romantic getaway” after her birthday. Not surprisingly, the magazine did not have any proof of them going away, nor could it even offer where they supposedly vacationed together. Curiously, yet another anonymous insider was quoted in that article as saying the alleged trip was to get “away from prying eyes,” the very same words used 365 days ago in the equally fictitious tale about Pitt secretly meeting up with Aniston in a secret house in the Hollywood Hills.

It’s not just famous people’s tweets that sometimes don’t age well. A number of outlets habitually manufacture whole stories about celebrities, including Aniston and Pitt, that are provably wrong over time. Gossip Cop highlights these tales in an effort to hold these tabloids accountable for their phony claims, hoping they’ll become more conscientious about their reporting in the future.
