Kanji page for 孤 lists wrong On reading compound?

The kanji page for 孤 (https://jisho.org/search/%E5%AD%A4%20%23kanji) lists as one of its On reading compounds:

恋 【コイ】 (romantic) love

which is neither on'yomi nor is it composed from 孤...

恋 also has an older reading 孤悲. That's why it's listed there.

Shouldn't that entry then show 孤悲 instead of 恋?

That would indeed make more sense I think. Hopefully the admin can fix this in the future.
