Katy Perry and Florence and the Machine’s Robert Ackroyd were “inseparable, kissing, flirting, cuddling away,” breathlessly reads another inaccurate Daily Mail story.

According to the tabloid, the two were “flaunting their romance” and “happy to put on an amorous display in full view” of everyone at a party following Perry’s Prismatic World Tour concert at the 02 arena in London.

Naturally, this juicy tale was picked up by a slew of other lemming-like outlets.

Here’s what’s true about the story: The spelling of Ackroyd and Perry’s names.

Here’s what’s NOT true about the story: Everything else.

A close pal of Perry’s tells Gossip Cop exclusively, “There’s nothing going on between them… no kissing.”

“They’re just friends,” adds our impeccable insider.
