Gossip Cop Busts Tabloid Covers

(Us, OK, In Touch, Life And Style, National Enquirer, Star)

Gossip Cop had a particularly busy week busting fabricated tabloid cover stories. OK!, Life & Style, In Touch, Star, the National Enquirer, and Us Weekly all published covers that were either misleading, inaccurate, or flat-out made up. Gossip Cop corrected every single one within hours of the issues hitting newsstands. See below!

OK! claimed that Amal and George Clooney are expecting a baby, but Gossip Cop exclusively debunked the false report about her being “pregnant” and “14 weeks along.” A rep for Clooney told us that the story was “made up.”

Life & Style ran a ridiculous cover story alleging Prince Harry had gotten a 19-year-old pregnant during a one-night-stand. The tabloid even dragged Queen Elizabeth into its tall tale, claiming she was “furious” about the (non-existent_ pregnancy. However, a Kensington Palace insider assured Gossip Cop exclusively that the baby claim was 100 percent “not true.”

In Touch blared on its cover, “Katie’s Revenge On Tom,” insinuating that Katie Holmes had exposed marriage and Scientology secrets about Tom Cruise. However, the report was a complete bait-and-switch. Every so-called “secret” the tabloid made reference to was something Leah Remini had said in interviews or wrote in her new tell-all book, which chronicles her negative experience as a member of Scientology. The tabloid’s sensationalized headline was a flat out misrepresentation of the actual article.

Star published a wholly manufactured story about Matt Damon supposedly being in the midst of a “$140 million divorce” from wife Luciana Barroso, who he’s been married to since 2005. Gossip Cop exclusively debunked the false report. A source close to Damon confirmed the cover story “completely not true.”

The National Enquirer cover falsely declared that Angelina Jolie is facing a “New Cancer Battle!” It was yet another in a long line of the tabloid’s phony stories alleging she’s on the verge of dying, which is just preposterous. A source close to the situation told Gossip Cop the magazine’s latest near-death claim was similarly “entirely fabricated.”

And finally, Us Weekly claimed Lamar Odom kicked Khloe Kardashian out of his hospital room after allegedly becoming convinced she’s using him for publicity. Additionally, the tabloid reported that Kardashian prevented Odom’s kids from visiting their ailing father in the hospital, and he “snapped” when he found out. However, Gossip Cop was told by an insider that the entire account couldn’t be further from the truth.

Of course, these were just the tabloid cover stories Gossip Cop busted this week, but there were many, many more inaccurate reports that we exclusively debunked inside each of the magazines. As always, Gossip Cop will continue to separate fact from fiction.
