Recently fired White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is not dating Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson, despite an inaccurate report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this rumor.

As Gossip Cop reported, President Donald Trump removed Scaramucci from his role as communications director on Monday, just 10 days after he took the position. The former New York financier, whose wife filed for divorce last week, was spotted dining at the Trump Hotel in Washington D.C. with Pierson and a few other administration employees just hours after his firing. The dinner prompted HollywoodLife to publish an article with the headline, “Is Anthony Scaramucci Dating Katrina Pierson?: Spotted Out Together After He’s Fired By Trump.”

The accompanying article, however, provides zero evidence that the two might be an item. In fact, the site even notes “it’s unclear what the relationship between Anthony and Katrina is.” Allow Gossip Cop to explain. We spoke to Pierson about the webloid’s theory she’s dating Scaramucci, a notion she laughed off before exclusively assuring us, “We are NOT dating.” Pierson further tells us, “Never dated, won’t be dating. We are political friends and media colleagues.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Pierson mocked a Raw Story headline reading, “Scaramucci secretly dined with Katrina Pierson at Trump Hotel hours after firing announced.” In reference to the two having dinner at a very public restaurant, the political strategist quipped, “How does one ‘secretly’ dine at the #TRUMP hotel??” She then added several “crying laughing” face emojis. HollywoodLife even cited Pierson’s tweet in its article and acknowledged she had “poked fun at the rumors they might be dating,” but decided to run its sensationalized story anyway. Not content with just publishing bogus stories about Hollywood celebrities, the unreliable website is now spreading its fake news into the political world.
