LeAnn Rimes is “finally pregnant!” declares Star. The tabloid said the same thing back in February, and it was false. Either Star has amnesia or hopes its readers do, because the magazine pretends it never published that bogus story. Regardless, Gossip Cop has report exclusively that Rime is still not pregnant, despite what the tabloid has repeatedly claimed.

Instead, this time around the outlet plunges headfirst into its latest fabrication, quoting a so-called “source” as saying, “LeAnn is over the moon right now. She has wanted this baby for over a year.” Star points out that Rimes is “sporting a long-awaited baby bump” and that her “recent weight gain” is evidence of pregnancy.

Very nice, Star. The tabloid should work on improving its manners and its sources, because right now both stink. A rep tells Gossip Cop exclusively that Rimes is “absolutely not pregnant.” As an aside, don’t be surprised after we’ve corrected this rumor if a number of the less than scrupulous blogs make up stories to cover their hides with new claims about Rimes gaining weight because she either wants to get pregnant or is depressed because she isn’t expecting yet.

Sadly, Gossip Cop is fairly certain that this won’t be the last time Star manufactures a fake Rimes is pregnant story. For the time being, however, the only fertile thing here are the imaginations of the writers at the tabloid.
