Reports that Jennifer Aniston is pregnant and preparing to split from fiance Justin Theroux are fabricated, sources close to the actress claim.
This week, the latest rumors regarding Aniston’s pregnancy spread through gossip outlets and social media, but this time the story took on a new twist. Reports claimed that Jennifer is not only expecting her first child, but also preparing to become a single mom after dumping Theroux.
But now the rumor-busting site Gossip Cop is taking on the Jennifer Aniston pregnancy reports, deeming it to be on the “rumor” side of the scale, not “real.” The outlet said the reports of a pregnancy and a breakup are just re-hashing the same rumors that have been circulating for months now.
A rep for Aniston also told Gossip Cop that the pregnancy reports are “100 percent fiction.”
If the story is bunk, it would certainly not be the first unsubstantiated report about Aniston and Theroux. Earlier this year, OK! Magazine cited sources who claimed that after years of hoping for a child, Jennifer Aniston had finally gotten pregnant.
Sources said the baby was the main cause of Jen’s desire to speed up her wedding date with Justin Theroux.
“She is playing things close to the vest, but her friends are wondering. Babies have been on her brain, and she has always said that she would like to be married before little ones come along.”
The report went on to claim that Jen and Justin were planning on getting married in Mexico sometime this spring.
“The wedding is set for spring in Los Cabos, Mexico. She’s been nonchalant about the whole thing for so long, but now that the date is pinned down and the dress and venue are picked out, [Jennifer Aniston’s] bubbling over with joy.”
Other rumors have claimed that Aniston was dumping Theroux after catching him cheating, or that the pair had skipped town to elope. Nearly all of the reports relied on unnamed sources, and all were eventually debunked as false.
Jennifer Aniston herself has not addressed the latest rumor that she is pregnant, but in the past the actress has had some fun taking on the rumors. Back in 2012, she appeared in a video for SmartWater made to look like security footage from her home, and in the viral spot she joked about pregnancy rumors, her fitness routine, and her famous hair styles.
