Justin Theroux is not trying to score a date with Jennifer Lopez, despite a late and wrong report that Gossip Cop already debunked. The premise wasnâ€™t true when we busted it earlier this week. Itâ€™s still completely bogus.
On Monday, RadarOnline made up a story about Theroux having â€śthe hotsâ€ť for Lopez and wanting to pursue a romance with the singer. The article, which was filled with inaccuracies about the actorâ€™s love life, was also based on claims from an anonymous and untraceable â€śsource.â€ť However, a rep qualified to speak on Therouxâ€™s behalf told Gossip Cop on the record it was flat-out â€śfalse.â€ť
Unfortunately, the latest issue of the Globe is continuing to spread the phony narrative. An alleged insider tells the magazine, â€śJustinâ€™s spreading the word he wants to take J.Lo out for dinner. Heâ€™s under the impressions sheâ€™ll say yes. He thinks heâ€™s the worldâ€™s greatest lover.â€ť
The â€śsourceâ€ť further claims â€śit doesnâ€™t botherâ€ť Theroux that Lopez is dating Alex Rodriguez because heâ€™s up for the â€śchallengeâ€ť of stealing her away. The questionable tipster concludes that Lopez â€śdoesnâ€™t have the slightest interestâ€ť in Theroux, but her boyfriend will have no problem beating up the actor â€śif he makes a move.â€ť That showdown wonâ€™t be happening. This random storyline, which seems to have cropped up out of thin air, is completely fabricated.
In addition to the crux of the outletâ€™s article being wrong, itâ€™s riddle with additional falsehoods. The magazine lists Emma Stone and Sienna Miller as two of Therouxâ€™s former conquests, but heâ€™s never been romantically involved with either actress. In June, Theroux and Stoneâ€™s mutual friend Jonathan Van Ness confirmed to E! News that the two are simply â€śfriends.â€ť He added, â€śMen and women can be friends and it can just be friendly.â€ť And when Theroux and Miller were spotted hanging out earlier this summer, reliable publications such as People noted that theyâ€™re also â€śfriends.â€ť
Meanwhile, the Globeâ€™s article refers to Rodriguez as Lopezâ€™s â€śfianceâ€ť and claims sheâ€™s been wearing a $250,000 engagement ring from him. Less than two weeks ago, however, Lopez confirmed in a radio interview that sheâ€™s â€śnot engaged.â€ť The outletâ€™s report is filled with one inaccuracy after another, so any discerning reader should be aware that the main theme of the article is also untrue. Unfortunately, the gossip media enjoys arbitrarily linking Theroux to random female celebrities, so we suspect the actor will be in another nonexistent romance very soon.
