Jonathan Scott Zooey DeschanelAre homeowners? The lovebirds may have a house on the books, but they aren’t living there yet. Is there trouble at home Gossip Cop investigates.
‘Property Condemned — To Take Forever!’
According to the National Enquirer, Scott didn’t tell Deschanel their dream house was destined to become a nightmare. The Property Brothers star says Deschanel’s children immediately named the property: “You know what happens when you name something, whether it’s a mangy stray dog or a beautiful home of your dreams? You keep it.”
The two bought the house in May 2020, but sadly haven’t been able to move in yet. Home renovations have been complicated by the pandemic. Scott explains, “When you’re doing a major reno, you always, always, always find hidden problems. You just hope they don’t cost a lot of time and money.”
Deschanel is managing this well, but her patience seems to be wearing thin. “The delays are wearing her down,” an insider says. “She loves Jonathan, but she figured if she was moving in with a Property Brother, at least the property would be livable!”
What’s Going On With Their Timeline?
Let’s not forget about this story for a second. It seems that this tabloid misunderstands the meaning of the story. Property Brothers even do. Their program is about renovating homes to make dreams come true. Scott, a renovation professional, would be willing to renovate a home before moving in. Deschanel would expect it.
The timeline doesn’t add up in this story either. The Enquire claims the two bought this home in May 2020, yet Scott didn’t make his announcement until December 27, 2021. He and Deschanel were all smiles as he happily announced a “full blown reno.”
Scott and Deschanel met in the fall of 2019This tabloid reports that they bought a forever residence after just one year of being together. Considering Deschanel’s divorce from Jacob Pechenik wasn’t finalized until June 2020, this simply doesn’t add up.
Scott has promised to provide updates on his and Deschanel’s home through the issues of his magazine Reveal. The Property Brothers are nothing if not enterprising, so you’ll be able to follow the progress of this house diligently. Deschanel clearly loves Scott and this tale of strife seems completely false.
