Jay Z is not on steroids, despite a speculative and somewhat irresponsible report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to the repeatedly discredited MediaTakeOut, Jay Z was seen in New York on Friday “wearing a tank top, and showing off his arms.” The unreliable webloid writes, “We’re definitely impressed by the size of his arms. Jay Z was never a skinny man, but he never had big arms like that.” The site then says one has to “wonder how was able to look like that,” adding “Could he be on some type of steroids?”

Rather than fact-checking, the outlet once again preferred to float an unsubstantiated claim. In fact, MediaFakeout doesn’t seem to have reached out to Jay Z’s reps or even sources close to the music mogul. Instead, it simply relied on a picture and appears to have created an entire scenario around it.

Many of the site’s own commenters even blasted MTO for making up the steroids allegation, noting how Jay Z essentially looks the same as he always has. Actually, Gossip Cop has published a photo from 2012 to further illustrate how the mogul’s physique hasn’t altered in years.

Suffice to say, Gossip Cop has corrected the webloid on numerous occasions for inaccurately reporting about Jay Z. Almost five ago to the date, we busted MediaTakeOut for wrongly reporting Beyonce was “dumping” him. Additionally, we also corrected the site when it falsely alleged Jay Z slapped Kanye West in the face and later punched Pharrell. As Gossip Cop exclusively reported back then, all those claims were 100 percent inaccurate. Much like those tall tales, an insider assures us the latest allegation about Jay Z being on steroids is also “not true.”
