Jennifer Lopez angrily confronted Alex Rodriguez about cheating on her with his ex-girlfriend, fitness model Lauren Hunter, reveals the National Enquirer. In fact, the publication reports Lopez “attacked” Rodriguez in an “epic confrontation” after the magazine initially broke the infidelity story.

An insider tells the publication the former baseball star “kept mumbling and denied” cheating on Lopez during their argument, but she didn’t believe him. The outlet’s source notes, “Jennifer turned a blind eye when P. Diddy and Ben Affleck cheated on her. But she finally appears to have mustered enough spine to confront A-Rod.” The tipster says Rodriguez was “desperately trying to lie his way out of this,” but she didn’t buy it and “sent him packing.”

Wow, as in wow is that claim so wrong. For starters, as Gossip Cop previously reported, Rodriguez has not cheated on Lopez nor does she believe the tabloid’s account. That said, an impeccable source close to the couple tells us they’re “not affected at all” by the untrue cheating rumors, and the singer never lashed out at Rodriguez.

Curiously the Enquirer’s new report contradicts a recent article by its sister outlet, RadarOnline, which maintained Lopez didn’t believe the cheating rumors and was in “denial.” Bottom line: Lopez and Rodriguez remain happy and the tabloid has struck out again.

Miley Cyrus has enlisted Vanessa Hudgens in her feud against Selena Gomez, reveals OK!. The publication explains it all began when Hudgens and Cyrus hung out together at last month’s Billboard Music Awards and discovered their mutual “dislike of Selena.”

The magazine’s insider shares, “Miley and Selena have never got on [well] and have been sniping at each other for years.” The source reveals Cyrus “hates how Selena manipulated Justin Bieber to the point he’s nothing but a walking punch line.” The tipster says Hudgens and Cyrus are “worried Selena’s going to do the same to The Weeknd, who’s so out of his depth.” “Selena plays all sweet and innocent, but she isn’t. She might have been Bieber’s first lover, but he wasn’t hers,” adds the outlet’s insider.

Curiously, the tabloid offers no specifics about how Cyrus and Hudgens are going to gang up on Gomez. That’s because it’s all fake news, and even Cyrus’s own rep tells Gossip Cop the publication’s claims are “completely untrue.”

Of course, we're not surprised by the falsity of the article. Gossip Cop recently busted OK! for incorrectly reporting Cyrus was trying to have twins with Liam Hemsworth. Like that story, the latest about Hudgens and Cyrus teaming up against Gomez is doubly wrong.

Blake Shelton sang a tribute to his ex at the CMT Music Awards Blake Shelton performs onstage during the 2017 CMT Music Awards at the Music City Center on June 6, 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee. © Mike Coppola/Getty Images for CMT Blake Shelton performs onstage during the 2017 CMT Music Awards at the Music City Center on June 6, 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee.  

Blake Shelton sang "Every Time I Hear That Song" at the CMT Music Awards as a "tribute" to his ex-wife Miranda Lambert, reports Life & Style. The magazine says it was an "awkward situation" because she was sitting in the audience.

Lambert "couldn't believe Blake chose that song," a source tells the outlet, explaining it was "really uncomfortable for her," particularly with her boyfriend Anderson East sitting by her side. The publication contends Shelton was "sending Miranda a message with his choice of material," since he picked a "searing song about their 2015 split" that "captures the pain of his divorce."

The magazine's tipster notes, "It was his way of offering some closure." Lambert found it a "bittersweet moment," asserts the publication’s snitch, because while they "had a terrible breakup," she was "touched by the intention behind the song."

One problem: Shelton did not write "Every Time I Hear That Song." It was penned by four songwriters with no connection to his divorce from Lambert, Gossip Cop can confirm.

And his decision to perform it at the CMT Music Awards had nothing to do with her presence. It’s Shelton's current single, and he's been singing it everywhere, including at the People's Choice Awards and on "The Voice." His performance was not as a "tribute" to his former spouse, an insider assures Gossip Cop.

Sandra Bullock and her boyfriend Bryan Randall will wed soon This Oct. 26, 2015 file photo shows actress Sandra Bullock arrives at the premiere of "Our Brand is Crisis" in Los Angeles. © Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP, File This Oct. 26, 2015 file photo shows actress Sandra Bullock arrives at the premiere of "Our Brand is Crisis" in Los Angeles.

There are “wedding bells” in the very near future for Sandra Bullock and her boyfriend Bryan Randall, reveals OK! The magazine further reports the two will get married in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where Bullock has a home, and that her kids, Louis and Laila, will be the ring bearer and flower girl, respectively. Also, the outlet leaks that Bullock’s baker sister Gesine will make the wedding cake, and the nuptials will be attended by her pals George Clooney and Jennifer Aniston.

A friend tells the magazine, “No one thought Sandra would be open to another marriage," but Randall changed that. So when exactly are the nuptials? Gossip Cop is told no wedding is currently being planned, and the tabloid's claims are speculative and wrong.

This is OK!’s second made-up cover story about Bullock in a span of just a few months. In April, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid when it falsely alleged Bullock was leaving Hollywood and relocating to Wyoming permanently. Funnily, right after we exclusively busted the outlet’s tale about her quitting acting, Bullock signed on to star in the upcoming thriller Cash Truck. Suffice to say, it may be time for the magazine to get better Bullock sources.

“Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice is “cheating” on her husband Joe as he sits in prison, reveals Us Weekly. What’s more, she doesn’t seem to be hiding her “romance with a New Jersey businessman,” reports the publication.

The magazine’s source is “close pal turned adversary Kim DePaola," and she says, "They've been pretty cozy… in the last few months.” She adds that Giudice is “sexting him all the time.”

But it’s all untrue, and DePaola not only has no firsthand knowledge, but she’s simply alleging what she claims she heard from a hairstylist. To recap, Us Weekly, now the sister publication of the National Enquirer and Star, published a cover story that Giudice is cheating on her imprisoned husband, and it’s all based on supposed information from an “adversary” who says she’s heard some things from a hairstylist? That’s not journalism.

Regardless, Giudice’s lawyer, James Leonard, says the cheating allegations are “1,000 percent false,” and were “manufactured by attention-seeking lowlifes who have no moral compass.” He further notes that Giudice “vehemently denies” the accusations and maintains, “The only man in Teresa’s life is Joe.”

Gossip Cop busted the tabloid’s other sister publication OK! when it falsely claimed some time ago that Teresa planned on dumping Joe while he was behind bars. It was wrong then, and it remains untrue now.
