The whole point of that exercise was to determine which of the theories
that predict what the internal structure of a neutron star looks like is
more likely to be correct.  Here's a not too long and not too dense (pun

You've taken a wrong turn right there.  The timing variations that were
measured are (most likely) produced by the stellar object.
