Bogus Blog Declares Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart On “Trial Separation”

Truth rating: 0

HollywoodLife can’t stop making up Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart stories. It’s a compulsion. And the webloid’s sickness leads it to publish bogus reports that directly contradict other bogus rumors it spread just hours earlier.

Case in point: Shortly after picking up a false story about Pattinson and Stewart moving to Paris together, the serial fabricators at HollywoodLife wrote that the couple are “on a trial separation.” Huh? “Get out a Kleenex before reading!” declares the Jay Penske-owned site. (Actually, we’ll stick with the barf bag we always have ready when scrolling through HollywoodLife.)

“A source close to the couple tells exclusively that Rob and Kristen are on a trial separation while the hunky Brit is filming ‘The Rover’ in Australia,” continues the outlet. Again… huh? According to HollywoodLife, “The end of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart is nigh,” with the actor “ready to pull the plug on their relationship for good.” This is the opposite of what HollywoodLife just reported about the same people. It isn’t just horrible journalism — it’s willful amnesia.

“Rob and Kristen are on a trial separation right now,” a source who knows absolutely nothing about anything tells HollywoodLife. The confused insider explains, “For Kristen, it’s all or nothing. She’s ready for marriage, but Rob is over the relationship.” “When Rob returns, they’ll assess their relationship,” continues the HollywoodLife source. Ahh… got it.

Pattinson is going to film in Australia, Stewart will not be there, so HollywoodLife feels safe calling their work-related distance a “trial separation.” Then no matter what happens with the couple, the webloid can claim it had it right all along. Even though HollywoodLies, er, HollywoodLife just said Pattinson and Stewart were moving to Paris.

That’s because the outlet will gladly and recklessly post almost anything you wave in front of their faces. Sometimes, when they’re called out on their alternate reality, HollywoodLife quietly pulls down its fabrications. But most often, the webloid will happily post contradiction after contradiction, without much regard for facts or looking silly. It’s sad.

As for this supposed “trial separation,” it exists only in HollywoodLife’s fevered imagination, the true “source” of so many bogus reports. Sources tell Gossip Cop the report is “completely phony.”
