Eminem did not really say that he had sex, oral or otherwise, with Rihanna in his song “Shady XV,” despite a new claim. As Gossip Cop previously reported, rumors of the two singers hooking up are not true. Still, a certain webloid is now wrongly claiming he had oral sex with Rihanna.

According to MediaTakeOut, the rapper now “snitches” that he has “relations with Rihanna.” The not-so-reliable webloid points to lyrics in Eminem’s song “Shady XV,” in which he raps. “What they don’t know is the fact that Rihanna calls me Pinocchio, meh/ She loves the way I lie/Sits on my face and waits for my nose to grow.” However, the bogus blog leaves out the very next verse, which is important. In the following line of the song, Eminem adds, “Pathological liar, oh, why am I such an asshole/That my disguise is pants, but they on fire.”

MediaTake out and other outlets willfully left out that Eminem notes he’s a “liar” about anything going down between him and Rihanna. Still, they chose to mislead their readers. Of course, MediaTakeOut’s track record when reporting about Rihanna borders on horrendous. The webloid reported back in 2011 that the singer was pregnant, dating Travis Barker, and was going on tour with Chris Brown. Enough time has sufficiently passed to see that Gossip Cop was right to correct those stories, and MediaTakeOut was 0 for 3 on those claims. Just a few months ago, the silly site reported Rihanna was posing nude for Playboy. It’s was wrong then, is wrong now, and will remain wrong three years from now.

Despite rumors, as Gossip Cop rightfully reported over the summer, there were no “on-tour hookups” between Rihanna and Eminem, and now the rapper is mocking claims like that in his song “Shady XV.” Sadly, outlets like MediaTakeOut are again caught with their pants “on fire.”
