Taylor Swift NOT “Snubbed” By Rooney Mara, Despite Fake News Story
OK! announces on its website, “Rooney Mara Snubs Taylor Swift’s ‘Squad’ Invite!” It says in the article, “So sad! Taylor Swift is desperate to rope 31-year-old actress Rooney Mara into joining her ‘girl squad,’ but Rooney has joined the growing list of celebs telling Taylor to take a hike!”
“Rooney doesn’t want to be part of anybody’s entourage, despite Taylor’s incessant string of invitations to party,” a so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, noting, “She even turned down Taylor’s invite to her July 4th Rhode Island bash.” Uh, that was nearly six months ago.
The magazine’s supposed source goes on to allege, “Taylor’s been desperate to befriend the edgy Rooney since seeing her play a lesbian in Carol, but Rooney’s a loner who avoids celebrity events if she can.” Um, Carol first came out in theaters in November 2015. That’s more than a full year ago.
With not one timely detail in its article, OK! has seemingly concocted this random piece out of thin air. Our suspicions were confirmed when, upon investigating, Gossip Cop was exclusively told this is a “completely made-up tabloid story.” And it’s coming from the same outlet that recently published another wrong “squad” tale last month, falsely claiming Swift and Selena Gomez were feuding. OK! apparently has no real squad access at all.
