Lea Michele and Emma Roberts do NOT “hate each other” nor is there a “battle of the divas” on the set of “Scream Queens,” despite a fabricated report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim, which began in the pages of an unreliable tabloid. Gossip Cop investigated, and the story is entirely “not true.”

According to In Touch, “There are plenty of horror stories coming from Fox’s ‘Scream Queens,'” and they’re a result of Roberts and Michele feuding. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “It was a clash of personalities from the beginning,” and now the two women “hate each other.” The magazine’s woefully ill-informed insider alleges Michele and Roberts initially “would just ignore each other” on set, but as “the weeks went on, things got more heated and they started calling each other names.”

Of course, the tabloid’s seemingly fake “source” couldn’t even come up with the supposed “names” the two women allegedly call one another. Still, the tabloid quoted its questionable “source” as saying, “It was making people uncomfortable, so a producer had to talk to them,” adding, “They’re still at each other’s throats. They just don’t mesh well.”

Clearly, In Touch is once again out of touch. Just a few days ago, Michele tweeted a picture of herself working out with Roberts, along with the message, “Just two besties hanging out! @RobertsEmma love you so much!” And Roberts posted on Instagram the same picture with the caption, “Love working out and working with my favorite girl!!!!!!!! @msleamichele,” with three hearts afterwards. Wow, they must seriously “hate each other.”

Roberts and Michele’s Twitter and Instagram feeds are actually filled with many more examples showing their appreciation and affection for each other. But instead of praising them for being women who support and empower one another, the tabloid chose to publish a blatantly false story pitting two successful actresses against each other. Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with an impeccable source on the “Scream Queens” set, and we’re told the In Touch story is completely “not true.”

As an aside, In Touch’s sister magazine Life & Style published the exact same story, but altered the quotes from its fake “source” ever so slightly, which is actually further proof that the tabloids are two-time liars.
