By now you’ve probably heard about the supposed relationship and engagement between SNL alum Jon Lovitz and 90210 actress Jessica Lowndes. Jessica has spent the past few days hinting at her new man on Instagram, and Jon posted a pic of the two together yesterday.
Naturally, fans were a little shocked – I mean, he is 58 years old while Lowndes is 27, not that an age gap has stopped Hollywood couples before.
Jessica and Jon both guest starred on Hawaii Five-O and were photographed enjoying a pool in Honolulu back in January 2015. So they have known each other for a while. Did their friendship grow into something more?
But is this legit?
Fans – and Chrissy Teigen – are calling shenanigans on the relationship, saying it’s an early April Fool’s Day joke.
It is very suspicious to post so many photos the week before the prankster holiday.
We’ll know for sure come Friday.
We didn’t even have to wait until Friday for this engagement to be outed as a prank.
Turns out the relationship between Jessica Lowndes and Jon Lovitz was simply a viral stunt to promote her new “Deja Vu (remix)” music video.
“I know it’s still the last week of March,” she said in an Instagram video, “but is it too early to say April Fools’?” Lowndes then shared a link to the video, where Jon plays a sugar daddy.
Maybe they got called out early, but they definitely got us talking!
