MediaTakeOut just made up a story about something going on between Beyonce and Laurent Bourgeois, one of her dancers. The webloid, which has frequently fabricated rumors about the singer and actually thinks Blue Ivy is a fake baby, is once again attempting to report on Beyonce — with disastrous results.

MTO announces “we are hearing ALL KINDS OF RUMORS about Beyonce and the CLOSE PERSONAL FRIENDSHIP that she struck up with her male dancer Laurant.” First of all, that’s not how you spell his name. But please, go on.

“According to multiple sources, the two are ‘very close’ and people are wondering if their relationship BORDERS ON INAPPROPRIATE,” continues MediaTakeOut. What’s the evidence? “We can OFFICIALLY tell you that Laurant is NOT gay,” explains the outlet. “He is VERY heterosexual. And he’s FRENCH… so you know he’s HORNY AS F*CK.”

It’s hard to argue with that logic. The webloid goes on to say, “Well… know what happens when people are ON THE ROAD AWAY FROM THEIR SPOUSE fro [sic] months on end.” So… every single person who’s away from his or her partner for a while will cheat? MTO adds, “And we’re not the only ones who thing [sic] SOMETHING IS UP, apparently Laurant’s [sic] friends TEASE HIM about his relationship with Beyonce… in a recent interview they all said ‘OOOOOOOH’ when he admitted to touching Bey’s butt.” Seriously, who writes this stuff? There is (obviously) nothing to this story besides MediaFakeOut’s characteristic sensationalism. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the article is “silly” and “stupid.” Beyonce has a backup dancer. The end.
