Rumer Willis is NOT a “diva” backstage at the Broadway run of Chicago, despite a mean-spirited report. Gossip Cop can bust the story. We’re told it’s nothing more than tabloid sensationalism.

The claims come from OK!, which alleges in its new issue that “although Rumer’s a newbie on the Great White Way, her costars find her aloof.” A supposed “insider” tells the magazine, “She’s always on her phone and is clearly only interested in herself. It’s a shame, because she could learn a lot from the other performers.”

But that’s not all. The OK! tipster further alleges Willis “walks around like she owns the place.” The snitch claims, “She has a dance coach, a wig person, a top makeup artist and a team tending to her every need. Yet she complains about everything, from the size of her dressing room to hating New York. You name it, she’ll moan about it.”

Now it’s Gossip Cop’s turn to do a little complaining, because this OK! “reporting” leaves a lot to be desired. First the magazine claims Willis is “aloof” and ignoring everyone by “always” being on her phone. And then it’s alleged Willis is “complaining” and “moaning” all the time.

So which is it? Answer: NEITHER. Production sources exclusively tell Gossip Cop that the OK! allegations are simply tabloid garbage. Gossip Cop isn’t surprised. The rags have been telling tall tales about Willis for years, and it seems as though the more her career grows, the more stuff is made up about her. Sad.
