Tori Spelling is the subject of a 100 percent false story in The Daily Mail that claims she called the police to help catch her dog. “Stop the puppy! Tori Spelling calls on the help of an LAPD officer to help catch her runaway dog,” declares the deceptive headline.

The outlet ran a picture of a police officer in front of Spelling’s home a few steps away from the star’s pet, trying to make it seem as though Spelling had summoned the LAPD for the purpose of retrieving the animal. She “was spotted at her front door shouting at her pup as an officer walked across the grass to try and catch the black-haired dog,” reports the Daily Mail. Except that has nothing to do with why there were cops at Spelling’s home.

They were actually there because paparazzi, whose photos the Daily Mail and other outlets use, were trespassing on the property, trying to take pictures of Spelling and her young children. Gossip Cop is told by a source close to the situation that the photographers were even rushing cars attempting to enter and exit the family’s garage. To reiterate, the story is as wrong as the paparazzi are shameless.

NOTE: It should be noted that Gossip Cop had screen-grabbed the article and fair used its concomitant photo to illustrate how the British tabloid was wrong and manipulated its image for a completely false story, but seemingly the paper deleted its erroneous report.
