When the less-than-credible site TheDirty alleged late last week that Liev Schreiber had been unfaithful to Naomi Watts, his longtime partner and the mother of their two children, it was Gossip Cop that reported the story was a complete lie.

At the time, TheDirty and assorted lemmings like HollywoodLife claimed that after the wrap party for Mental, Schreiber had a sexual encounter with a woman named Phoebe Roberts, who was a stand-in for his co-star Toni Collette in the film.

The sites took pains to write that Schreiber and Roberts went “back to his apartment.” We said then it wasn’t true, and now even Roberts has publicly dismissed the rumors. She says, “I did not and am not having a sexual relationship with Liev Schreiber,” adding, “We have a professional relationship. We worked together on a film and nothing inappropriate occurred between us.”

Gossip Cop would like to point out that TheDirty seems to be removing almost as many of its headline-grabbing stories as it posts. The site pulled down its piece about Schreiber and Roberts, and as we reported earlier, it also yanked its similarly erroneous cheating report about Donald Trump and a porn star. It’s time for TheDirty to clean up its act.
