Ariana Grande and Lea Michele are “on the outs,” according to a made-up OK! story, which claims the “Scream Queens” co-stars are fighting. Gossip Cop can bust this report.

According to the magazine, Michele’s prior working relationship with the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, is at the root of the alleged feud. “Ariana needs to be the center of attention, so she can’t stand the fact that Ryan is constantly praising Lea and loves any idea she throws out,” explains a so-called “insider” for the outlet. OK! claims Grande has “gone the catty route” instead of asking Michele for pointers.

The supposed OK! source says of Grande, “She rolls her eyes anytime Lea talks… [Michele] does all she can to avoid Ariana in meetings. It’s only a matter of time until this blows up!” The purported tabloid insider also alleges, “Ariana thinks that she’s the big star on the show and wants Ryan to cater to her.”

This is all fascinating. Not what the insider says, of course, because that’s 100 percent made up. What’s fascinating is how OK! decided to trust a complete liar as an “insider.” Because Gossip Cop reached out to a rep for Michele, who told us this: “They have yet to meet or even start production.” Wow. So the OK! source just flat out made up everything. The supposed eye rolls, the meetings, the fighting, all of it. Gossip Cop is… well, not entirely surprised. Just annoyed that tabloids keep trying to get away with this crap.
