Worst Offender of January: Star Magazine

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss



Gossip Cop is introducing a new feature where we’ll reveal which outlet spread the most wrong rumors each month.

Star magazine has the dishonor of being January’s worst offender, getting busted by Gossip Cop a whopping 28 times.

Among the doozies the tabloid dished out were stories claiming Khloe Kardashian was pregnant (wrong), Sandra Bullock only eats with a cocktail fork (say what?), Beyoncé rejected Kim Kardashian’s bridesmaid request (inaccurate), and Kerry Washington asked President Obama to be her baby’s godfather (seriously).

National Enquirer was close behind with 21 busted stories, followed by RadarOnline, which had to be corrected 12 times.

Stick with Gossip Cop as we continue to separate fact from fiction all year long.
