No, Margot Robbie is not dating Jack Sanborn originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Nope. Margot Robbie is not dating Bears rookie linebacker Jack Sanborn. Nor is she dating White Sox infielder Leury Garcia. You may have seen tweets or headlines about these Chicago athletes getting together with the A-list actress from Australia, but it’s really just a big goof.
According to Sports Illustrated, the joke started when a Blue Jays podcast tweeted out a fake report that pitcher Mitch White had started dating Robbie, attributing it to TMZ. Of course, no such TMZ report exists.

Before long, others followed suit making jokes with equally obscure athletes.
Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics and more
And that’s how Sanborn and Garcia got involved.
As is tradition on the Internet, as the joke continued it got more ridiculous.
For what it’s worth, Robbie has been married to Tom Ackerley since 2016.
