On Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show last week, John Mellencamp said that on the list of Things That Meg Ryan Hates, his name is right up there with “face wrinkles.” John said that Meg Ryan hates him and wants nothing to do with him because he was a fit-throwing moody child during their relationship. But on the same day that John told Howard that Meg is done with him, someone took a picture of them hanging out together in NYC. Go ahead and insert your very own SoWhatIsTheTruth.GIF here.
Stephanie Forman, who took the picture, said that John and Meg didn’t seem coupley. Okay, but it doesn’t seem like Meg Ryan hates him either, unless she’s smiling while telling him to please eat shit and get the fuck out of her face.
A source close to John tells Page Six that he doesn’t even know he got caught! The source said, “I don’t even think he knows the photo exists. He hasn’t said one word about it.”
So either John was joking with Howard. Or John is so not over Meg Ryan and he makes his current girlfriend wear a fluffy blond wig and a rubber Meg Ryan mask whenever they go out in public. Or John blatantly spit out a river of lies, because he and Meg are back together and he wants to throw the paparazzi off. John knows that he and Meg are the IT couple of our time and he doesn’t want the paps around while he and his lady are suckin’ on chili dogs outside Tastee Freeeeeze. Yeah, it’s definitely the third one.
Here’s John taking a quick stroll in NYC with his true love, a cigarette, on the same day he hung out with Meg.
