In 2019, a tabloid reported Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost were planning a whimsical winter wedding and a baby. The story is now one year old. Gossip Cop investigated the piece when it came out. Here’s a look back on why we knew the story wasn’t true.
Scarlett & Colin’s Wedding And Baby Plans
According to the National Enquirer, Johansson and Jost were planning to wed in the winter of 2019 and hopefully began to expand their family. The tabloid stated the actress was putting the wedding plans in motion and hoping to be expecting around the same time as well. An insider spilled to the outlet the Black Widow star was sending out invites for people to attend the small, private ceremony that was supposed to take place in New York City.
Third Times A Charm For Scarlett?
Noting that Johansson’s previous marriages ended in divorce, the magazine stated the actress was “determined” to make this third one work. The paper’s insider added Johansson also wanted to give Jost “a child too, the sooner the better.” “Scarlett thinks he’s a special guy and knows he’ll be a great daddy,” added the source. But, the story got a bit confusing when the insider maintained Johansson could’ve already been pregnant at the time. To convey its idea, the outlet used a photo of the actress at the Toronto Film Festival with a circle around her stomach, suggesting the actress had a “little bump.”
No Wedding Yet For Scarlett & Colin, Here’s What Is Really Going On
However, a year has gone by and Scarlett Johansson didn’t have a baby or a wedding. At the time, Gossip Cop ran the story by a more credible source, a rep for the actress, who went on record to dismiss the phony piece. Since the actress and the SNL host haven’t tied the knot, it’s clear the Enquirer had no idea what it was talking about. In regards to the couple’s wedding, Jost recently explained during an interview on SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen Live that he and Johansson are “rethinking” their wedding plans due to the coronavirus epidemic. Much like other celebrities who had to postpone their ceremonies, Jost stated that he wasn’t sure “when that moment will be” when he and Johansson will have their wedding.
The Truth Behind Scarlett Johansson’s Personal Life And Why The Tabloids Are Unreliable
As far as the Enquirer is concerned, the untrustworthy paper has created so many false narratives about Scarlett Johansson, it’s hard to even keep up with the lies. Last August, before the “winter wonderland” story came out, Gossip Cop busted the magazine for asserting Johansson and Jost were going to have a “rooftop wedding” in New York City. Clearly, the tabloid has been running the “wedding” narrative for quite some time when it comes to the pair. We investigated the story and checked with a spokesperson for the actress who confirmed the story was false.
Two years ago the tabloid also alleged Johansson wanted Jost to quit SNL. The outlet claimed Johansson was “pressuring” Jost to quit the long-running comedic show for the sake of their relationship. Gossip Cop however learned that this wasn’t true, especially since Jost is still on the show. We corrected the story when it came out. This is just more proof of why the tabloids shouldn’t be trusted.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
