Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell did NOT come close to having a “knock-down brawl” on the set of “True Detective,” despite a new rumor. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story, with multiple sources telling us nothing of the sort ever happened.

The report can be found in this week’s National Enquirer, which claims Vaughn and Farrell had a “temper-fueled flareup” and almost came to blows during an argument about gun control in the wake of the Charleston church shooting. In one mind-bogglingly long, unnatural quote, a so-called “on-set source,” claims to the supermarket tabloid:

“The two squared off after Irishman Farrell called Americans ‘daft’ for allowing so many guns to be available to so many. Vince, taking offense at what he perceived to be an anti-American attack, got smack in Colin’s face — telling him he was out line! It got red-hot when Colin retorted that ‘even your own president agrees with me!’ Vince stands six-five, but much-smaller Colin would NOT back down — the two had to be separated! Cooler heads finally prevailed as the guys agreed to disagree and finished filming.”

Yeah, that doesn’t sound fake AT ALL. Seriously, what real person talks like that? Gossip Cop was immediately suspicious, and we’ve spent the last day investigating. But NO ONE can corroborate that such an incident ever took place.

Gossip Cop is told by multiple REAL sources that the Enquirer story is “not true,” and that Vaughn and Farrell are actually “buddies.” In fact, the two co-stars had dinner together after their joint “Tonight Show” appearance just two weeks ago. It seems like the Enquirer just read Vaughn’s recent comments about being in favor of gun rights, and then decided to combine it with the Charleston massacre to try to capitalize on the timely, tragic topic. For shame.
