Jon Lovitz Sparked 'Getting Married' Rumors With Notably Young Girlfriend But Was That All True?
There's one thing called a "surprise," and there's this thing called "shock." It came out as a shock to everyone when Jon Lovitz revealed that he is engaged to Jessica Lowndes and is about to get married and share a husband-wife relationship. But was it really the truth?
Girlfriend Soon Becoming Wife? Getting Married Or Just Rumor?
Everybody got surprised when the famous comedian Jon Lovitz shared a photo of himself and the 90210 stars, Jessica Lowndes riding in a Bentley convertible.

This tweet denoting his younger girlfriend ignited the fire as nothing did. While some goofed up claiming it to be a prank, others went with it feeling happy for the couple. But the fire got its fuel when Jessica shared another picture over her Instagram.
Finally, these two posts from Jon and Jessica led them to the headlines with speculation that they were really engaged.
But Jon and Jessica revealed the truth behind the nature of their relationship in an interview where Jon gave the statement,
“I came up with the idea for [the fake relationship] last week. I thought maybe it would get some traction but I wasn’t expecting it to blow up like this.”
And when the mic turned to Jessica, she stated that April Fools came early for the two of them.

Moreover, Jessica revealed that the picture of the ring she posted without any caption on her Instagram wasn't even her's. She said.
"It was a picture from Google."
The 90210 stars took the full responsibility for the dating prank, which lasted almost a year.
"I love playing practical jokes, so last year on April Fools' Day, it leaked I was in Will Ferrell's Lifetime movie [A Deadly Adoption], so this year, I decided to pull an April Fools' joke of my own, and what better partner in crime?"
It was later revealed that Jessica played the practical joke just so she could grab all the attention before the release of her new music video. Hence, basically, the whole 'getting married' fiasco was just a promotional stunt by Jessica, where she was well supported by her good friend Jon.
Jon And His Vocal Nature About Gay Rights?
Although he is straight and fancies relationships with ladies, he has not backed down from being pretty vocal about his support for gay rights.
He has been found to voice his opinions about gay people on more than one occasion.
"Gay people can get married in all 50 states. And everyone's worried about who's going to bake the wedding cake??? I'll tell you who. ACLU of Washington "When gay people go to a business, they should be treated like anyone else and not be discriminated against. No. It's about letting gay people marry, if they want, in all 50 states. It's not about you"
