It’s time to check in on HollywoodLife’s continuing bogus coverage of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez! As has been well established, the webloid will publish almost any rumor it feels like about Bieber and Gomez, because HollywoodLife has unreliable “sources,” no inside information, and seemingly little regard for basic logic or consistency.

The site’s apparent strategy has been to flood the Internet with as many sensational Bieber-Gomez rumors as possible. It repeatedly contradicts itself and confuses fans in the process.

Gomez herself has said, “HollywoodLife is never true. Ever.” An outlet has to be pretty consistently wrong for a celebrity to step in and say something like that. HollywoodLife fits the bill!

In any case, the last couple of days have been another reminder of just how empty the blog’s “reporting” has been on Gomez and Bieber. On Thursday, HollywoodLife posted a story with this headline, “Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber’s Huge Fight Before Break Up — Watch.” The video contained no fighting.

Later that day, HollywoodLife ran a report with this headline, “Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Split: He Threw Other Girls In Her Face.” The story claimed an “exclusive” that “the reason behind their breakup” was a fight over “other girls.” Uh-huh.

By Saturday, HollywoodLife was running a new story that completely contradicted the previous one: “Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez: Huge Fight Was About Getting Married.” This one was also an “exclusive,” and it claimed “what really caused their split” was Bieber’s failure to propose to Gomez.

Wait… what?

It raises the question… which HollywoodLife exclusive “source” was either lying or clueless? The one who said Bieber and Gomez specifically broke up over other women, or the one who claimed they specifically split over not having wedding plans? As always, one thing is clear: HollywoodLife does not actually know what is happening with Gomez and Bieber. The site just wants to… say stuff.

Meanwhile, HollywoodLife is counting on people forgetting all of this when Bieber and Gomez are next spotted together, or when there’s another development in the on-and-off couple’s evolution. But people should not forget: HollywoodLife makes it up as it goes. Fans who care about accuracy over sensationalism should stick with Gossip Cop.
