Justin Bieber Tweet Twisted By Shameless Site To Create Selena Gomez Hook

Truth rating: 0

HollywoodLife is at it AGAIN.

The alleged “news” webloid is printing speculation about Justin Bieber as though it’s fact, twisting his words, misleading readers, and embarrassing itself in the process.

On Saturday, the site ran a story titled, “Justin Bieber Promises Selena Gomez: I Won’t Let You Down.”

The article begins, “Justin is doing damage control after hurting Selena multiple times in 2012. He’s promising her that he won’t let her down in 2013 — or anytime thereafter.”

The headline and the story that follows are 100 percent speculative nonsense, and HollywoodLife knows it.

Here’s what actually happened.

Bieber tweeted, “Won’t let u down” on Saturday in the context of Twitter posts about his upcoming acoustic album.

The message was directed to fans, referencing his music.

No rational observer would interpret his words as a “promise” to Gomez about personal issues.

But HollywoodLife still jumped on the opportunity to sensationalize Bieber’s simple tweet and give its readers a completely false impression.

On Friday, HollywoodLife tried to pull similar shenanigans, running a bogus story about Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin allegedly “tempting” Bieber with a bikini picture.

The site wound up changing its headline after Gossip Cop called out the speculative garbage for what it was.

We can almost understand HollywoodLife’s strategy — after all, its Bieber and Gomez “sources” have proven time that they know NOTHING about the stars.

So what’s left except to just make up stuff?
