UPDATE, March 28 at 5:48 p.m.: It was all a hoax to promote Lowndes’ new music video “Deja Vu,” which features Lovitz. They are not actually engaged. Meh.
Who would’ve guessed the biggest tea for today would come from Jon Lovitz?
The Saturday Night Live alumnus imploded the Internet Monday (March 28) with news he is courting Jessica Lowndes, the 27-year-old Canadian actress best known for her work on the 90210 reboot. (Lovitz is 58, which means these two have a 31-year age difference. May-December AF.)
The unlikely couple revealed their union to the world via a series of crass and cheeky social media posts. Lovitz posted a photo of himself and the stunning Lowndes on Twitter Sunday, which has since racked up 240+ favorites, and we’re guessing more to come:

Days prior, Lowndes posted this cringe-worthy quote on Instagram alluding that she was enjoying the, erm, company of an older gentleman. Yeah, let’s go with company:
She followed this up with a close-up of a noticeably older dude’s hand on her thigh. But whose?! WHOSE?!
Lowndes continued teasing the relationship on social media, referencing sugar daddies:
And denied she had been hacked.
And an ENGAGEMENT RING. So, they’re getting married or nah?
And this video of a man (Lovitz) videotaping her while “sleeping” in full makeup.
The Internet is not sure how to process this information. Some are supportive. (“…haters will hate! You make a stunning couple,” one person commented on Instagram.) Some think it is total B.S–nothing but a premature April Fool’s Day joke. (Which could be true, given the last dude Lowndes was linked to was chiseled rugby Adonis Thom Evans–according to People.) However, because it’s 2016, the bulk of responses are negative. Don’t worry, though: The Lovitz is clapping back.
Listen, I’m single AF and in desperate need of any male attention. I’m in no position to judge, and neither are you. Let ’em live. Let ’em love. (Maybe just lay off the grass munching innuendos, eh?)
