In the span of just 25 hours, HollywoodLife has flip-flopped in its belief that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Therouxâs romance could be âback on.â This boomerang type of reporting, however, is quite common for the site, which is often nicknamed HollywoodLies. After Gossip Cop called out the outlet for its inaccurate story on Friday that alleged Aniston and Therouxâs âromance might not be entirely overâ and âcould reignite,â the blog did a 180, maintaining thereâs âno hope whatsoever of Justin and Jen ever getting back together.â
HollywoodLies published an article on August 10 that had the headline, âJennifer Aniston & Justin Therouxâs Subtle Clue That Their Romance Might Not Be Entirely Over.â The often discredited site then blathered how thereâs âone big hintâŚ that their romance could reignite.â What was it? Intrusive aerial photos of Anistonâs property that the Daily Mail published, showing Therouxâs Porsche and Mercedes still in her garage. Thrown in to lend credence that the two stars âmight not be entirely overâ was a âso-called source close to Theroux,â who the site quoted as saying he âfearsâ heâll never meet another woman like Aniston, and âthe more time Justin spends away from JenâŚ and being single, the more he realizes how incredible he had itâ with her.
Fast forward to August 11 when Gossip Cop debunked HollywoodLies and Daily Mailâs false narratives about Aniston and Theroux possibly getting back together because his cars were still at her home. Of course, neither outlet applied common sense, such as why would the actor need a car (or two) in New York City, where Theroux is routinely seen on his bike? Or how itâs easier to pack bags and ship clothes and other keepsakes from the West Coast to the East Coast than it is to transport two cars.
Irrespective of logic or reasoning, one of the very clear reasons not to believe they âmight not be entirely overâ is because while his cars may still be under her roof, Aniston and Theroux have not be under the same one since they announced their split in February. And, at the time the photos of her private property were obtained without the actressâs permission, Aniston was in Italy filming Murder Mystery with Adam Sandler. In fact, she hasnât been home in weeks since the Netflix production began in Montreal before heading to Italy. In addition, Anistonâs rep, whoâs commissioned to speak on her behalf, told us the Daily Mail and HollywoodLiesâs speculation was âfalse,â and the couple is not reigniting their relationship. We heard the same from Therouxâs camp, too.
Magically, just a few hours after Gossip Cop corrected HollywoodLifeâs phony claim about how Theroux and Anistonâs âromance might not be over,â the repeatedly disproven outlet flip-flopped and in a second story nebulously quoted a âsource close to Jenâ telling the blog, âThereâs no way these two will reunite romantically.â Wait, just 24 hours earlier, the same site said they âcould reignite.â A cynic might suspect HollywoodLiesâ âsource close to Jenâ was actually her rep sharing that information with Gossip Cop hours earlier about their first fabricated story.
None of this, however, surprises us. That blog has a rich history of publishing false reports about both Theroux and Aniston. Much like how the current bogus stories were spurred by photos published by the Daily Mail, back in March HollywoodLies, working off pictures of Theroux and Aubrey Plaza hanging out, wrongly declared they were a ânew couple.â
And in May, Gossip Cop busted the unreliable blog when it contended Aniston was furious about rumors about Theroux dating Selena Gomez. If you want facts, stick with Gossip Cop. But if you want flip-flops, read HollywoodLife or better yet, go to a surf shop.
