A tabloid claims Jamie Foxx has been ignoring Katie Holmes ever since she supposedly gave him a “baby ultimatum.” Nothing about the story is true. Gossip Cop can debunk it.

“Holmes Alone In NYC!” reads a headline in the latest issue of the National Enquirer, which includes a photo of the actress riding the subway solo in New York and another image of the actor playing volleyball in Los Angeles. The accompanying article says Holmes has been miserable on the east coast while the actor has been “living it up” in California.

“Katie told Jamie she wanted to have a baby with him, but she may have pushed too hard because he’s been giving her the brush-off,” a supposed source tells the outlet. “She’s been aching to give her daughter Suri a brother or a sister and now it looks like her dream is fading.”

The alleged insider further contends that Foxx is intent on living in Los Angeles, which is one of the reasons he refuses to have a child with Holmes, whose home base is in New York. “Lately, Katie’s been looking so sad,” adds the seemingly nonexistent tipster. “Her love life is in shambles, and even Suri is too busy for her since she turned 13.”

The tabloid’s article is a work of fiction. Earlier this month, Gossip Cop busted the Enquirer for falsely claiming Holmes was demanding that Foxx get her pregnant by the end of the year or she’d dump him. The magazine’s story was based on claims from an anonymous “source,” but the actress’s own spokesperson dismissed it as nonsense. This latest article is just a continuation of the phony premise. A rep qualified to speak on Holmes’ behalf once again confirms there’s no truth to the narrative.

As Gossip Cop has stressed countless times, Holmes and Foxx have a somewhat unconventional relationship and aren’t together all the time. People magazine and E! News, outlets more reputable than the Enquirer, have both similarly reported that the two stars spend time together when their schedules allow it, but also have their own separate lives.

Additionally, the unreliable publication has already proven to have little insight into the couple’s romance. Back in January, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for wrongly reporting that Holmes and Foxx were planning a wedding after the actress’s parents gave the actor their blessing to marry her. Just two months prior, the tabloid had made up a different story about Holmes and Foxx getting married in Paris. These various storylines are contradictory and never pan out.

A tabloid claims Jessica Simpson’s weight loss goals are causing problems in her marriage to Eric Johnson. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the story. The singer’s rep assures us it’s 100 percent false.

A headline in the latest issue of OK! reads, “Eric Begs Jessica: Slow Down!” The magazine says that following the birth of her third child, Simpson is desperate to regain her pre-baby body for swimsuit season. A supposed insider contends that singer wants to lose 70 pounds and has become obsessed with working out, but her husband is growing frustrated with her fitness fixation.

The so-called “source” adds, “He never sees her anymore. She’s either locked up in the gym or out on a four-hour run.” The suspicious tipster continues, “Eric wants her to relax – he misses their date nights but she doesn’t want to ditch her diet to have a few drinks or eat out. She tells him, just another month or two, and it’ll all be worth it.”

The outlet’s story seems to have been concocted simply Simpson recently opened up to People magazine about getting back into shape after having her third child. Although the singer noted that she’s been eating healthier and exercising, Simpson’s spokesperson assures us she’s not neglecting her marriage to lose weight.

“Jessica is working hard to get in shape and feel good and be her healthiest, but she is not on any crash diet or crazy work-out regiment,” says a rep qualified to speak on the singer’s behalf. “Eric is, as always, 100 percent in support of Jess – and they even work out together a lot.” The happy spouses also exercised together following the births of their older children, Maxwell and Ace.

It should be noted, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has busted a tabloid for running a false story about the singer’s body and marriage. During her third pregnancy, Star wrongly reported that Simpson couldn’t “stop eating.” The story was just a cheap attempt at exploiting the singer’s pregnancy weight gain, which is par for the course when carrying a child.

Gossip Cop also busted NW for falsely claiming Simpson would be getting plastic surgery after the birth of her third baby, going as far to say she wanted “a butt like Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Alba’s abs.” In Touch then wrongly alleged that Simpson was so upset about her pregnancy weight gain that it was negatively impacting her marriage. The singer’s weight and marriage are clearly two topics that the tabloids love to target with phony reports.

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Garner are not more than friends, despite a false report suggesting the two stars are hooking up. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. We’ve learned it’s entirely untrue.

“Jen & Bradley Sneaking Around!” reads a headline in the latest issue of Woman’s Day. Garner was spotted stopping by the actor’s house in Los Angeles earlier this month, which was enough for the magazine to insist that the visit was a “secret date” and there’s a romance developing between the former “Alias” co-stars.

“No one would be surprised if they’re finally taking their friendship to the next level,” says a supposed source. “The timing couldn’t be more perfect for them to make a real go of things once and for all.” The alleged insider further contends that Cooper has been leaning on Garner amid his breakup from Irina Shayk.

“In times of trouble they always seek the other out, but perhaps they’ve realized what they’re looking for could be standing right in front of them,” adds the questionable tipster. “They’re actually perfect for one another.” From there, the unreliable outlet maintains that Cooper is also in a relationship with Lady Gaga, who won’t be happy when she learns he’s getting close to Garner.

“She’s not blind,” says the seemingly phony source. “She can see how well-suited they are and has said from the first time she saw them together that they’re more than friendship there. She’ll be crushed if Brad ends things with her and moves on with Jen, but I doubt she’d be surprised.”

Nothing about this narrative is remotely accurate, aside from the part about the actress visiting Cooper’s home earlier this month. Just a few days later, however, Garner was seen grabbing lunch with boyfriend John Miller, who she’s been dating for more than a year. Meanwhile, “Entertainment Tonight” recently reported that Cooper isn’t making dating a “priority” following his split and “is completely focused on his career and his daughter [with Shayk].”

Still, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who confirms there’s nothing romantic going on between Cooper and Garner. The two stars have remained friends since “Alias” ended in 2006, but they’re not becoming an item. The actress has a boyfriend and the actor isn’t dating anyone at the moment.

There’s no romance between Cooper and his A Star Is Born co-star either. Just last month, we busted Woman’s Day for falsely claiming Gaga was pregnant with Cooper’s baby. This latest article makes no mention of that bogus scenario. That’s because the outlet seems to be making up new storylines as it goes along.

Did Leonardo DiCaprio tell Once Upon A Time In Hollywood crew members to avoid making eye contact with him while working on the movie? That’s what is being alleged buried deep in a lengthy new article about the actor, his latest film, and working with director Quentin Tarantino. Gossip Cop, however, can correct the inaccurate claim.

In a newly published piece about DiCaprio tied to the upcoming release of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, while discussing the actor’s “air of mystery,” The Hollywood Reporter contends “some crewmembers on Once Upon a Time were instructed to avoid making eye contact with him.” It bears mentioning no one specifically is quoted as saying that, and the assertion is simply attributed to an unnamed and untraceable “on-set source.” Additionally, after including that unsubstantiated claim, the magazine simply moves on from it without furnishing any proof of that type of behavior.

Gossip Cop looked into the allegation, and there’s nothing to justify that one-line, out-of-the-blue slam of DiCaprio. Not one source from the set or individuals close to Tarantino could confirm that to us when we investigated. And as opposed to the trade publication, which based its information on an anonymous individual, DiCaprio’s rep went on the record with us to deny the claim. Gossip Cop is exclusively told, “He did not request that no one be in his eyeline.”

Equally significant is that in DiCaprio’s more than three-decade career that’s included 30-plus films and numerous other TV appearances, no one has ever publicly accused him of asking crew members to “avoid making eye contact with him.” While it’s true the actor prizes his privacy and rarely gives interviews, including declining to comment in the THR story, he’s not known for being rude to those he works with. Also, while Tarantino was quoted in the piece about collaborating with DiCaprio, he only praised the Oscar-winner.

Perhaps because DiCaprio is such a professional, Gossip Cop has not had to debunk false rumors about him on set in the near-decade we’ve been in business. Most of the phony articles we’ve corrected about him are somehow related to his personal life. For instance, we recently busted a tabloid tale that untruthfully maintained DiCaprio and Brad Pitt were fighting over their co-star Margot Robbie. In reality, DiCaprio is dating model Camila Morrone; Robbie is happily married; and Pitt’s relationship with the actress is purely platonic.

And before that nonsense, Gossip Cop shot down a report that wrongly insisted DiCaprio and Jennifer Aniston were dating after being introduced by Pitt. That, of course, was also a work of fiction. Much like the current article about DiCaprio not making eye contact with the crew of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, the aforementioned stories were similarly based on unidentifiable tipsters. If there’s something to truly avoid, it’s claims predicated on unknown sources.

Ben Affleck is not “working out to the point of collapse,” despite a new report. The claim comes from a website that has a track record for posting provably false stories about the actor. In fact, Affleck’s rep tells Gossip Cop the entire premise is “untrue.”

According to RadarOnline, Affleck has come up with an extreme weight-lifting routine. And it’s noted he working so hard to add muscle mass by himself that his friends have become “concerned.” The often debunked blog alleges it has an “insider” who shares only with that outlet how Affleck wants “more muscle than he had while making his superhero movies.”

The same unnamed tipster contends Affleck is “obsessed” with bulking up, and he’s pumping iron “to the point of collapse.” The purported source asserts that while the actor’s weight-lifting goes on at “all hours of the day and night,” it’s not tied to any movie, and yet he’s still working himself “to the point of exhaustion.” The untraceable and possibly made-up tipster adds that even though his constant exercise “keeps his mind off booze,” Affleck’s “friends are concerned he’s pushing himself too far.”

Naturally, the site doesn’t mention one “friend” who’s worried about the actor. Nor does it name its so-called “insider.” Conversely, Affleck’s rep tells Gossip Cop on the record that all talk of him working out to a dangerous level is 100 percent “untrue.”

As mentioned above, the website has not always been trustworthy with its stories about the movie star. For instance, Gossip Cop busted the blog when it wrongly reported some time ago that Affleck’s then-girlfriend Lindsay Shookus had a “baby bump” and was pregnant with his child. That was totally inaccurate, as was it’s absurd article about Affleck and Jennifer Lopez getting back together.

In that phony piece, which it titled “The Return Of Bennifer,” the outlet again insisted it had an insider, who shared how when Affleck and Lopez met up to discuss a script it was as if “they’d never split up.” The bogus source further claimed the two kissed and realized there was still “so much chemistry between them.” And while the site once more hid behind an anonymous and seemingly fabricated tipster, reps for both Lopez and Affleck told Gossip Cop the article was simply a work of fiction.

And last year, RadarOnline concocted yet another tale that combined rekindling with an ex and it’s latest fixation with Affleck working out. In that manufactured story, which Gossip Cop also corrected, it was alleged Affleck and Jennifer Garner had gotten “back together” in the gym, where she was whipping him “into shape.” Curiously, while there are thousands of photos of them at their kids’ sporting events, going to church, and walking around Los Angeles with their children, the website couldn’t furnish one single photo of Affleck and Garner going into or leaving a gym.

While getting in shape has been a big part of Affleck’s life, and he even worked out at home while still in rehab last year, he’s not putting his life in jeopardy for it. Interestingly, in its current and somewhat related story, the outlet doesn’t mention anything about its previous narrative involving Affleck working out with his ex-wife. It just trudges along without acknowledging its past falsehoods. Gossip Cop, however, keeps very detailed archives, and we suggest the blog starts exercising better judgment when relying on its supposed Affleck sources because they’ve been pretty weak.

Is Katie Holmes upset with Jamie Foxx for “flirting” with other women? That’s what one of this week’s magazines is claiming. Gossip Cop, however, can correct the report. We’re told it’s completely wrong.

“Katie Catches Jamie Flirting,” reads the headline of a new Life & Style story. It then contends that after the former “Dawson’s Creek” star saw photos of Foxx “cozying up to several scantily clad women” during a game of beach volleyball at Leonardo DiCaprio’s house in Malibu over July 4th weekend, Holmes was “seeing stars.” The magazine then asserts a “friend” of Foxx tells the outlet, “Long-distance relationships like theirs require a lot of trust and communication, but Jamie’s the kind of guy who loves to go out partying.” “He’s always being seen with other women,” adds the supposed Foxx pal.

The alleged tipster speculates, “I’m sure [Holmes] wishes that he would stop the blatant flirting.” “It’s just disrespectful,” says the Foxx “source.” It appears that while concocting this article, the outlet or its purported “insider” forgot this was all supposed to come from a Foxx “friend” since a real buddy probably wouldn’t first note how cross-country romances “require a lot of trust” and then call him “disrespectful.”

Of course, the tabloid has a long history of publishing stories about Holmes and Foxx that Gossip Cop has debunked, and time has repeatedly proven us right. Also, the publication’s entire premise is based on quotes from an anonymous and possibly made-up “source.” Conversely, Holmes’ rep exclusively tells Gossip Cop on the record that the tale is “not true.”

The reality is the dynamic of Holmes and Foxx’s relationship is such that they see one another when they can, and focus on each other when they’re together. Also, Gossip Cop was told some time ago that Foxx is smart enough to know that whenever he’s out in public there’s a strong chance he’ll be photographed, which is why there are never any pictures of him doing anything remotely inappropriate around or with other women. And the images of him on the beach at DiCaprio’s home are hardly anything that would upset Holmes.

As mentioned earlier, Life & Style has published many inaccurate articles about Holmes and Foxx that call into question the credibility of their sources. For instance, last December the magazine printed a cover story that swore up and down Holmes was “dumped on her 40th birthday” by Foxx. In the real world, however, Foxx flew across the country to have dinner with Holmes and her mom Kathleen at Serendipity in New York. They were spotted days later kissing on a yacht in Miami.

It’s also the same outlet that Gossip Cop busted a year ago when it declared on its cover that Holmes and Foxx had “baby news.” The tabloid even maintained the actress had a visible baby “bump,” but as her spokesperson told us, Holmes was “not pregnant.” A good 12 months later, it’s clear the publication’s sources aren’t that knowledgeable.

And the same publication insisted nearly two years ago, based on yet another unnamed and unidentifiable “source,” that Holmes and Foxx were engaged after a “secret proposal.” Apparently, it was so secret that neither star knows about it to this day. At the time, their reps told Gossip Cop the two were not engaged and do not plan to marry. If anything, the tabloid is flirting with disaster by relying on its current crop of Holmes and Foxx tipsters.

Is Ryan Seacrest’s new “romance” upsetting Kelly Ripa? That’s the premise behind a magazine report that asserts his “Live” co-host, as well as his mom, Connie, don’t approve of his relationship with “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Larissa Schot. Gossip Cop looked into the claim, and we can debunk this inaccurate story.

According to Life & Style, four months after the 44-year-old TV personality split from Shayna Taylor, Seacrest has “already moved on” to 24-year-old Schot. The outlet notes that after he was photographed kissing Schot in the South of France in late June, Seacrest’s mom, Connie, and Ripa made it known to him how they “don’t approve at all” of his “romance” with the model. A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “They both think it’s time he settled down… with someone his own age!” “Nobody knows if this is just a rebound or if Ryan’s experiencing an actual midlife crisis,” adds the supposed tipster.

While Seacrest was indeed spotted making out with the young model in the French Riviera, the tabloid appears to be overselling the seriousness of his “romance.” And it’s most assuredly sensationalizing the reaction to it by his mother and Ripa. Gossip Cop reached out to a Seacrest insider, who was not authorized to speak on the record, and we’re told he and Schot are “not in a relationship, so there is nothing to approve or not approve.”

Gossip Cop is not entirely surprised by the falsity of the article, considering how many times we’ve busted that outlet for it’s unfounded tales about Seacrest. For instance, the same tabloid swore up and down a few months ago that Seacrest was bailing on Ripa and “Live,” and moving back to the West Coast. Her camp told Gossip Cop it was “not true,” and of course Seacrest is still living in New York and working on the morning show.

Additionally, the publication has been proven wrong in the past when purporting to know what Ripa thinks about Seacrest. Last year, the outlet insisted Ripa was replacing Seacrest with Jerry O’Connell as her “Live co-host. At the time, Ripa’s team shot down the claim, and obviously a year later there’s been no switch in personnel or even talk of it.

Gossip Cop also exposed the tabloid when it ran a cover story nearly two years ago to the date that untruthfully maintained Ripa and Seacrest were in a feud after it was announced he would host “American Idol” again. In that made-up piece, it was contended he was thinking about “leaving the show.” Obviously, that was untrue. It bears mentioning as well that when the report came out, spokespersons for both Ripa and “Live” said the article was a fabrication.

And lastly, a couple of months after that bogus tale, the same magazine published yet another cover story which wrongly alleged Kim Kardashian was replacing Ripa as the host of “Live,” thanks to Seacrest who produces “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Gossip Cop pointed out then how the article was incorrect, and once again our sources and time have proven us right. What’s actually upsetting is how often Life & Style publishes reports about Seacrest and Ripa that are indisputably false.

“Big Little Lies” has not only become a favorite for fans of the TV show, but also for the tabloids. As a result, cast members Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and Meryl Streep, have become the subject to several untrue feud rumors. Here a few wrong reports about the stars of “Big Little Lies” that Gossip Cop has debunked.

After the success of the first season of the HBO series, in February 2018 Life & Style reported how original cast members Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz were worried when Meryl Streep joined the second season of “Big Little Lies” that they’d “be written out” of the series. The magazine contended the two younger (though central) characters felt that with “so much star wattage” already on the show, and Streep being added to the cast, there was “only so much screen time available” for them. At the time, Gossip Cop was assured by a production insider the claim was bogus, and of course Kravitz and Woodley are still on the program.

When shooting actually began on season two, Gossip Cop then had to bust an In Touch story that maintained Kidman and Streep were feuding on the “Big Little Lies” set, and that it got so intense, executives from HBO met to figure out how to fix it before it “really got out of hand.” Basically, the premise of that piece was that Kidman felt she was “the star of the show” and beginning to feel “threatened” by Streep’s presence. It was even alleged that other cast member began to side with Streep, and were looking to “push [Kidman] off the show.” While the tabloid’s tale was based entirely on remarks from an unnamed “source,” a rep for both Kidman and Streep said the report was made-up, and the two Oscar-winners have remained close friends to this day.

Two months after that, Gossip Cop corrected Woman’s Day when it published an absurd article about Kidman having been “dumped” by her “Big Little Lies” co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern. According to the magazine, after Dern and Witherspoon had dinner together in Los Angeles while Kidman was away promoting Aquaman, the Australian actress was “crushed” and felt “left out in the cold.” That too was nonsense, considering Kidman and Witherspoon went bowling without Dern, and there was no mention of her feeling “dumped.” More significantly, the three women often openly praise each other and their friendship on social media.

Just a couple of months ago, Gossip Cop called out Star for an article that falsely asserted Kidman and Witherspoon were competing for awards and the spotlight during the second season of “Big Little Lies.” The publication’s supposed source insisted that going into season two Witherspoon was “still bitter about all the praise Nicole received,” and was going to push for her own storyline on the show, as well as campaign to be nominated for best actress. In addition to not even being in contention for Emmy Awards this year, as noted before, both Kidman and Witherspoon routinely gush about the other on social media and in interviews.

And just earlier this month, Gossip Cop shot down an In Touch article that inaccurately alleged Witherspoon was jealous of Kidman’s friendship with Streep and felt like a “third wheel.” The outlet claimed that before Streep joined the cast for the second season, Witherspoon and Kidman “were the face of ‘Big Little Lies,’” but now “it’s all about Nicole and Meryl” and “Reese isn’t happy about it.” In addition to contradicting its earlier narrative about Kidman and Streep feuding (above), the latest story is clearly a fabrication, as evidenced by Witherspoon posting a photo on Instagram of her co-stars at this year’s premiere along with a caption that read, “The power of sisterhood and friendship is limitless.” Far from fighting with each other, the “Big Little Lies” co-stars are actually a close-knit group of friends.

(Life And Style)

Are Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle “mothers at war”? That’s the premise behind a new cover story. Gossip Cop, however, can correct the highly sensationalized and inaccurate report that once again pits the wives of Prince William and Prince Harry against each other.

According to Life & Style, which has been provably wrong on many occasions about the two duchesses, Markle and Middleton recently had a dramatic “face off,” during which Prince Harry’s wife tore into the future queen about her parenting skills. The tabloid alleges it all when down as Middleton and the former “Suits” star watched their husbands participate in a charity polo match on July 10. The magazine quotes a so-called “insider” as saying, “Kate let her kids run around freely and have fun, whereas Meghan didn’t want anyone near Archie.”

“They clearly seem to clash on their ideas about parenthood,” continues the supposed source, who adds that Markle then hurled an “insult” at Middleton, illustrating how “the duchesses have been at war more than ever.” The anonymous tipster asserts, “Meghan isn’t one to mince words. So when she felt Kate wasn’t properly controlling her children, Meghan bluntly told her, ‘I’m already a better mom than you.’”

The seemingly made-up “insider” goes on to contend, “Kate was furious and stormed off to find William. It was so bad.” “Kate tried to get her revenge by ignoring Meghan for the rest of the polo match, but it was hard not to react to all the death stares Meghan was sending her way,” claims the questionable source. The incident was “incredibly awkward,” writes the magazine, which also reports that Prince William and Prince had words with each other as a result.

The tabloid wraps up its manufactured tale by relating how “Kate isn’t going to forgive and forget anytime soon.” It then has its dubious “insider” maintain that the “face off” was the “final straw for Kate, she’s washing her hands of Meghan for good.” The almost assuredly phony tipster concludes, “I can’t picture them ever making up at this point. Too much has happened between Kate and Meghan. They’re just very different people who will never get along.”

Of course, three days after the two royals supposedly clashed in public at the polo match, Markle and Middleton sat together in the Royal Box at Wimbledon and were all smiles as they watched the women’s single finals. Gossip Cop will cut to the chase: Life & Style’s cover story is a complete fabrication. Middleton and Markle did not have an argument at the polo match over each other’s parenting styles or anything else. And it bears mentioning that not one single legitimate outlet claimed the two sparred at the charity event.

Far from the duchesses being “at war more than ever” and Middleton “washing her hands of Meghan for good,” she appeared perfectly happy to watch the women’s tennis match with her sister-in-law. While there’s no evidence whatsoever of the tabloid’s account at the polo match, which was equally public, there are many photos of Middleton and Markle enjoying each other’s company at Wimbledon. And there’s little reason to believe the publication’s unsubstantiated article, considering how often it has published flat-out lies about both women on its covers.

For instance, Gossip Cop busted the magazine in February 2018 when it exclaimed on its front page that Kate Middleton was pregnant with twin girls, one of whom they were going to name Diana. Two months later she gave birth to one baby, a boy they named Louis. Similarly on the cover of an issue in August 2018, the same tabloid untruthfully announced that the palace “confirmed” to the magazine that Markle was pregnant with Prince Harry’s twin girls. That too was bogus. Markle had just one baby in May 2019, a boy she and the Duke of Sussex named Archie.

Each of those falsehoods were predicated, like the current story about Middleton and Markle being “at war,” on an unnamed and untraceable “insider.” And there are many more whoppers the publication has featured on its cover, including in November 2017 how “after an epic ‘Game of Thrones’-type battle” with Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, Queen Elizabeth named Prince William and Middleton the next king and queen. In a rare instance of offering an official comment, Kensington Palace told Gossip Cop the outlet’s article was rubbish, and naturally Prince William has not ascended the throne.

Lastly, Gossip Cop busted the same publication three months ago when it ran a cover story that insisted Markle told Middleton she “forced” Prince William to “cheat” on her because she didn’t make enough of an “effort to glam up” and look attractive for her husband. As widely reported, attorneys for Prince William called the rumors about him being unfaithful with their friend Rose Hanbury nothing more than “false speculation.” One would have expected the outlet to have included that highly charged confrontation in its current article about Markle and Middleton being “at war,” but maybe the tabloid can’t keep track anymore of all its fictional tales.

To recap: The magazine’s whole article about the duchesses being “mothers at war” is hinged on unverifiable quotes from an unidentifiable source. Meanwhile, not one other outlet alleged they had a “face off” and words with each other about who’s the better parent. Other more reputable publications simply noted both royals brought their kids to the polo match without any drama. And finally, much like the aforementioned cover stories, it will be even clear over time how untrue the latest one is about Markle and Middleton.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s marriage is in trouble because she’s returned to her “wild” ways, claims one of this week’s magazines. Gossip Cop, however, can correct the inaccurate report. We’ve learned it couldn’t be further from the truth.

According to an OK! article titled, “Miley Can’t Be Tamed,” after finally marrying Hemsworth in 2018 it seemed the “Wrecking Ball” singer had “changed her ways for good.” The tabloid then quotes a so-called “source” as saying how before they tied the knot, “Miley promised Liam that her crazy days were over, and that she was ready to be in the mature relationship he always wanted.” But after being wed for a while, contends the publication, the novelty of it all is “wearing off.”

“It’s like she’s slowly going back to her old self, pushing boundaries and seeking attention in all the wrong ways,” says the unnamed source without providing any proof. The supposed tipster goes on to insist it’s not sitting well with Hemsworth. “Deep down, he’s worried,” asserts the purported insider.

It appears the tabloid’s article was manufactured after Cyrus told Elle how she and Hemsworth have a “modern marriage,” and that while she’s in a “hetero relationship” she’s also “attracted to women.” It bears mentioning that this is not news to Hemsworth, who she’s been with her for the better part of 10 years. And while the outlet references that interview, it glaringly doesn’t furnish any examples of how Cyrus is “going back to her old self,” or what in her marriage is in trouble, causing Hemsworth to be “worried.”

As is practice with these magazines, the entire premise is predicated on quotations from an anonymous source, who may not even know Cyrus or Hemsworth. Conversely, Gossip Cop reached out directly to Cyrus’s camp to comment on the publication’s allegations. The singer’s manager assured us, “None of this is true.” We were also exclusively told Cyrus “couldn’t be any further away from her old partying ways,” and that she “rarely goes out other than to work out and work.”

Gossip Cop is not completely surprised by this report, considering how many times we’ve busted OK! and its sister publications for untrue stories about the couple. Several months ago, for instance, we debunked the magazine when it wrongly maintained Cyrus and Hemsworth’s marriage was at risk because they “can’t stop fighting.” We also shot down a tale a few weeks ago about Hemsworth supposedly getting angry with Cyrus for acting wild at the Met Gala. Clearly that was also unfound because the actor happily shared several photos of them enjoying their time together at the annual fashion event in New York.

And just a month ago, another tabloid claimed Cyrus and Hemsworth fought at a Malibu party over her “obnoxious antics.” In that flimsy report, which Gossip Cop also corrected, it wasn’t even mentioned where or when the alleged argument took place. That was similarly based on the unsubstantiated comments from an unknown “source.”

These phony narratives about the singer being “wild,” and it causing trouble in her marriage, have been so rampant that Gossip Cop recently did a roundup of a few false split rumors about Cyrus and Hemsworth. The reality is Hemsworth knows exactly who his wife is, and loves her for it. Actually, Cyrus even alluded to that on Instagram this year when she posted a long tribute to Hemsworth that included her writing, “I love how you let ME be Me.”

What’s truly “wild” is how these outlets repeatedly make up bogus stories about Cyrus and Hemsworth’s marriage, and try to get away with it. Fortunately, Gossip Cop thoroughly investigates every article. And because the latest tale is so inaccurate, we’re giving it a zero on our fact-or-fiction meter.
