Did Ben Stiller really flip out on hotel staffers because his breakfast wasn’t ready in a timely manner? That’s the claim in one of this week’s tabloids, which says the comedic actor threw a fit over his food taking too long. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can exclusively set the record straight.

According to Star, this supposed incident occurred at the Beverly Hills Hotel, but the unreliable outlet makes no mention of when it took place. A so-called “spy” tells the magazine, “He was grumbling to the staff that he was pressed for time. But that didn’t get his grub out any faster. He kept kvetching, ‘I made a spa appointment, I’m late for my massage!'”

The outlet’s questionable source goes on to say Stiller only took two bites of his food once it arrived, adding, “He definitely looked like he could use a really long massage to help him relax.” But Gossip Cop checked in with various sources close to the situation, none of whom had heard of such an incident taking place. Additionally, no one at the Beverly Hills Hotel was aware of Stiller having a tantrum at the establishment.

Unfortunately, Gossip Cop has also had to call out Star for publishing inaccurate reports about the actor’s recent separation from estranged wife Christine Taylor, so we’re not surprised by this latest tall tale. We previously busted the magazine for falsely claiming Stiller and Taylor split because he constantly accused her of cheating.

Shortly after that nonsense, Gossip Cop corrected Star’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, after it wrongly reported that Stiller hired people to spy on Taylor whenever she was away working on a TV or movie set. The tabloids clearly have a habit of accusing the comedy star of unusual or volatile behavior, but all of these scenarios are made-up.
