Selena Gomez, Calvin Harris Dating Report Late And Wrong
An OK! headline on Thursday reads, “Backstabbing BFF? Selena Gomez Has ‘Her Eye On’ Bestie Taylor Swift’s Ex Calvin Harris.” The accompanying story similarly states, “Taylor Swift’s group of friends are always swapping boyfriends and now Selena Gomez has her eye on Tay’s ex, Calvin Harris!” But this isn’t based on any individual reporting or investigating.
Rather, it’s one tabloid sloppily picking up a story from another. “The 23-year-old singer told friends, according to a Life & Style report, that she thinks she and the DJ would make a great couple now that Swift has moved on to Tom Hiddleston,” OK! writes, quoting the fellow rag mag’s “insider” as saying, “Selena’s told friends she believes she and Calvin would make a perfect match.”
OK! goes on, “According to the insider, Selena ‘has always had her eye on Calvin’ and never thought her bestie should have dated him in the first place!” The publication further warns that Gomez should “beware the wrath of Taylor.”
But Gomez doesn’t need to worry about anything, because she never actually expressed interest in Harris in the first place. Gossip Cop debunked the claims more than 24 hours before this regurgitated story was published. The faux love triangle was tabloid fantasy from Life & Style, and rather than sharing the truth, OK! chose to spread fiction over fact.
