John Mayer was not “desperate” to talk to Taylor Swift at Gigi Hadid’s birthday party, despite a report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. It’s made-up nonsense.

And, not surprisingly, it’s coming from the fabrication factory known as HollywoodLife. Hadid had a star-studded bash on Thursday to celebrate her 21st birthday, and both Swift and Mayer were among the celebrity attendees. But the webloid is the only outlet claiming that Mayer made it clear at the private event that he hasn’t “moved on” from his long-ago fling with Swift.

“It’s so obvious that John still has feelings for Taylor,” a so-called “source” is quoted as saying. “He kept trying to get her into a conversation, but Taylor wasn’t interested. She really just wanted to have fun with the girls and dance, which is what she did.”

Oddly, despite its “source” saying Mayer was attempting to get Swift’s attention, the site then quotes “a different source” who says there was “no interaction or engagements” and “nothing awkward at all.” The second “source” goes on to say there was “no drama or awkward moments at all,” despite the first “source” saying how “obvious” it was that Mayer was interested in Swift.

So which was it: Did Swift give Mayer the brush-off, or did the two happily steer clear of each other? HollywoodLies apparently couldn’t decide which storyline it wanted to go with, and ended up combining them into one contradictory piece. And this isn’t the first time the bad blog has been caught fudging the details of a run-in between the two singers.

Back in 2012, the webloid falsely said Swift and Mayer had a “nasty confrontation” at the Sunset Tower Hotel, even though they never actually crossed paths. Clearly HollywoodLife’s “reporting” hasn’t gotten any better over time.
