Josh Duhamel is not pursuing Megan Fox on the set of their upcoming movie, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. A rep for the actor tells us thereâ€™s no truth to it.
The actor and actress were recently photographed shooting kissing scenes for the family comedy Think Like a Dog, which is currently filming in New Orleans. The scripted on-camera smooch between their characters was enough for NW to claim Duhamel wants to date his co-star. It should be noted, Fox shares three children with husband Brian Austin Green, so the magazine is basically alleging Duhamel is looking to break up a family.
A supposed insider tells the outlet that the actor just wants to â€śhave some funâ€ť following his split from Fergie last year, and has been â€śall about making up for lost time.â€ť The outletâ€™s questionable source goes on to say that Fox â€śis very much his type,â€ť but sheâ€™ll end up rejecting her co-star because the actress â€śwould never cheat.â€ť
The magazineâ€™s bogus narrative is based on information from an anonymous and seemingly nonexistent â€śsource,â€ť but Duhamelâ€™s own spokesperson tells Gossip Cop on the record that itâ€™s all nonsense. The actor isnâ€™t romantically pursuing his married co-star. In fact, â€śEntertainment Tonightâ€ť recently reported that Duhamel is quietly dating actress Eiza Gonzalez, so he appears to be spoken for. Regardless of the actorâ€™s relationship status, heâ€™s not making moves on Fox.
Itâ€™s worth noting, NW has a habit of arbitrarily linking Duhamel to his female co-stars. Gossip Cop called out the unreliable publication in January for insisting that Duhamel was â€śromancingâ€ť Love, Simon co-star Jennifer Garner. Various other tabloids spread this bogus narrative for months until Duhamel and Garner laughed off the dating rumors during an interview on â€śEntertainment Tonight.â€ť
The tabloid also fails to mention that Duhamel and Fox have known each other for years, having co-starred together in 2007â€™s Transformers and its 2009 sequel. The pair have had a friendly and professional relationship for more than a decade, so thereâ€™s no reason to believe the actor is hoping to change that. The notion that Duhamel is angling to steal Fox from her husband is also complete nonsense.
Of course, weâ€™ve had to debunk several phony stories related to famous men pursuing Fox. Gossip Cop previously busted a tabloid for falsely claiming that Liam Hemsworth had been trying to land a date with the actress after meeting her at the gym. This latest premise involving Duhamel is equally fabricated.
