Nicole Kidman is not â€śfuriousâ€ť with Jennifer Aniston and her husband Keith Urban for having a â€śsecret rendezvous,â€ť because it never happened, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this fake news story that alleges Kidman was â€śreelingâ€ť that Urban and the former â€śFriendsâ€ť star had a private meet-up. Not only are we told itâ€™s a complete lie, but more importantly we can also easily prove it.
According to the often disproven New Idea, Kidman was â€ślivid when she saw the pair had been out to dinner together.â€ť The tabloid asserts the â€śBig Little Liesâ€ť star â€śfelt her husband had betrayed her trust.â€ť An either ill-informed or possibly made-up â€śsource close to the actressâ€ť claims, â€śNicole absolutely hit the roof when she found out Keith and Jen had been out to dinner together.â€ť The almost assuredly concocted â€śsourceâ€ť continues, â€śShe knew nothing about their night out until much later and she really felt like sheâ€™d been betrayed.â€ť
The same alleged â€śinsiderâ€ť contends Urban reassured Kidman, â€śThereâ€™s nothing going on and they were just meeting up to discuss a new project together.â€ť Still, maintains the unnamed source, â€ś[Kidman] canâ€™t help but be worried.â€ť The highly suspect tipster further shares that Kidman â€śknows Jen is really charismatic and funny, and could imagine there being chemistry between the pair.â€ť
But thatâ€™s not the end of the fake quotes. The purported â€śinsiderâ€ť also states, â€śThe fact that Jen has just filed for divorce means that people are going to put two and two together.â€ť â€śSeeing Keith out with Jen having such a lovely time is going to make her feel jealous,â€ť adds the phony â€śsource.â€ť
Thereâ€™s more nonsense, but Gossip Cop is going to cut it off right here. Glaringly, the tabloid does not mention some journalism basics, including noting when or where Aniston and Urban secretly met up. Was it in New York, Los Angeles, or even at the palace in Genovia? And when did they have this â€śsecret rendezvousâ€ť? Was it yesterday, two months ago, or just a week fromâ€¦ never?
And how exactly did Kidman find out about Aniston and Urbanâ€™s supposed â€śdinner togetherâ€ť? The untrustworthy magazine says, â€śShe saw the pair had been out to dinner,â€ť but â€śknew nothing about their night out until much later.â€ť One naturally infers that Kidman must have seen photos of her husband wining and dining Aniston or perhaps read an article about it. Thereâ€™s one tiny problem with that: We searched and there are absolutely no recent photos or articles about Urban and Aniston sharing a meal together.
Another tip-off that the tabloidâ€™s reporting skills are not exactly up to par is the line about how â€śJen has just filed for divorce.â€ť Actually, Aniston and Justin Theroux announced in mid-February they had split, but neither has filed divorce papers. That, however, is the least of the publicationâ€™s problems.
Naturally, New Idea didnâ€™t have any photos of Urban and Aniston together, so it tried to muddy the waters by illustrating its article with a picture of the actress presumably leaving a restaurant, a concerned looking Kidman in the middle, and a photo of the country singer looking carefree after a fun meal. While Gossip Cop admittedly couldnâ€™t identify the origins of the Kidman and Aniston photos, we discovered the image the tabloid used of Urban was cropped so that Kidman herself was cut out of the frame, which had captured the happy couple after a Valentineâ€™s Day dinner in 2013.
The magazine, which teases this story on the cover of its current issue, also has a photo of Aniston and Kidman looking awkwardly together at another event. Gossip Cop found that the picture of the women caught in a weird pose was taken at the 2017 Academy Awards. However, Aniston and Kidman are friends, as clearly seen in the photo of them backstage during the same Oscars ceremony (see above).
And while Gossip Cop has already transparently proven how the tabloidâ€™s tale is simply a work of fiction, we still reached out to reps, as a last step in our fact-checking. We have yet to hear back from Kidman and Urbanâ€™s spokespeople. Anistonâ€™s rep, however, tells us on the record the alleged â€śsecret rendezvousâ€ť or â€śdinner together,â€ť as claimed by the tabloid, â€śnever happened.â€ť
Curiously, the publication makes no mention how it previously tried to do a variation on this theme with Kidman and Theroux. Back in December, well before Aniston and her husband split, the tabloid ran a completely fictitious article about how Theroux and Kidman were â€śhidingâ€ť their chemistry from Aniston and Urban after sharing dinner together. The reality was Kidman and Theroux simply attended the same Louis Vuitton event in New York, along with a list of other celebrities. The was no truth whatsoever to that story and thereâ€™s none to the current article that manufactured a fake dinner date with Urban and Aniston.
