As Gossip Cop reported earlier on Sunday, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick named their third child Reign Aston Disick, which is funny because HollywoodLife reported exclusively last week that they were naming the little boy, born December 14, “Jeffrey Robert.” Whoops.

The webloid even had one of its impeccable sources explain, at the time, Kardashian and Disick “really want to honor their fathers and have talked very strongly on Jeffrey Robert. That would be the order the name would be presented.” Disick’s late father’s name was Jeffrey, while Kardashian’s dad was Robert. HollywoodLife noted they wanted “their son’s name to be meaningful to them both.” Of course, the bogus blog was dead wrong again, much the way it was off base when it claimed the baby was going to be a girl. Whoops.

As Gossip Cop has said before, time is not HollywoodLife’s friend, because after the site gets what it wants — quick traffic and links — as days or even just hours pass, ultimately an alarming number of its stories are proven to be 100 percent made up. Surprisingly, HollywoodLife has never responded to our question about whether they simple fabricate stories or they just happen to have the worst sources. Either way, the site’s accuracy record, especially when they claim to have an “exclusive,” is horrendous. And the Kardashian-Disick baby name is just another example.

So, how did HollywoodLife cover its lie about the baby’s name? With another lie! The site’s fictitious source came back to now explain, “Scott really wanted to stick to honoring their fathers, but Kourtney got more adamant that it be unique.” The webloid then claimed the couple had a “fight,” and Kardashian got her way with the “distinct and unforgettable name” of Reign Aston.

HollywoodLies, er, HollywoodLife’s first story about them wanting to name the baby Jeffrey Robert wasn’t true. And it’s cover-up piece about a fight over the (real) name Reign Aston is also untrue. The only thing that seems to be true is that HollywoodLife has no shame.
