Anna Faris has not warned Chris Pratt that their 6-year-old son Jack canâ€™t call Katherine Schwarzenegger â€śmom,â€ť despite a tabloid report. Gossip Cop can correct this falsehood. Weâ€™re told the claim is â€śridiculous.â€ť
According to Star, Faris is â€ślaying down the law.â€ť A so-called â€śinsiderâ€ť is quoted as saying, â€śAnna has made it clear that Jack is never allowed to called Katherine mom.â€ť The supposed source adds, â€śShe also doesnâ€™t want [Schwarzenegger] to be left alone with Jack.â€ť
The magazine then notes that Faris doesnâ€™t exactly practice what she preaches. â€śAnna doesnâ€™t seem to have such stringent rules about her own new romance with cameraman Michael Barrett, who sheâ€™s been dating for nearly a year,â€ť writes the publication without noticing its errors. How exactly is Farisâ€™s relationship â€śnew,â€ť if she and Barrett have been together for â€śnearly a yearâ€ť?
But thatâ€™s hardly the biggest problem with the tabloidâ€™s article. Its ill-informed or seemingly manufactured â€śsourceâ€ť offers, â€ś[Faris] and Michael are always out with Jack, so itâ€™s a bit hypocritical.â€ť Actually, itâ€™s not hypocritical at all since Jack doesnâ€™t call Barrett â€śdaddy,â€ť nor is the youngster left alone with the cinematographer while Faris is elsewhere.
The outlet is comparing apples and oranges and coming up with lemons. It feels as if whoever made up this nonsensical story didnâ€™t think through his or her premise and just concocted a bunch of quotations that donâ€™t really support the articleâ€™s narrative. Of course, while theyâ€™re close to being divorced, Pratt and Faris are still legally and heâ€™s not even engaged to Schwarzenegger, so the tabloidâ€™s headline, â€śAnnaâ€™s Stepmom Rules For Katherine & Chris,â€ť is also 100 percent inaccurate.
In fact, the â€śMomâ€ť star and Pratt have no â€śrules,â€ť other than being very cordial and respectful to one another. Faris even told Womanâ€™s Health in an interview earlier this year that she and Pratt â€ścommunicate openly,â€ť and â€śwe reiterate that there arenâ€™t rules to this. We have a lot of love and friendship, and our big goal is to protect Jack.â€ť Still, Gossip Cop doubled checked all this with a mutual friend of ours and Faris, and weâ€™re reassured the tabloidâ€™s claims are â€śridiculous.â€ť
Weâ€™re not completely surprised by the falsity of this story. In the past, Gossip Cop has busted Star on several occasions for its misinformation about Pratt. We previously busted them magazine when it wrongly maintained Prattâ€™s friends were pushing him to date Jennifer Lawrence, his Passengers co-star, following his split from Faris.
And we corrected the outlet when it speculated that Pratt was dating a â€śmystery blonde,â€ť who he was spotted with at a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in Los Angeles. The woman was actually one of his employees. Much like those articles, the latest one about Faris warning her Pratt about their son calling Schwarzenegger â€śmomâ€ť is similarly untrue.
