A mere 24 hours after HollywoodLife was caught publishing a fabricated story about how Rihanna’s boyfriend Hassan Jameel is “not a fan” of Chris Brown, the same untrustworthy site has made up another tale about how the rapper, in turn, feels the Saudi businessman “isn’t good enough for her.” Much like the first manufactured article, Gossip Cop has learned the outlet has again concocted another phony report, with bogus details about how Brown supposedly feels about the rumors Rihanna’s engaged to Jameel. We’re told no one “close” to Brown shared anything like that with the blog, which has been exposed on several occasions for posting fake news.

In its latest tall tale, the rightfully nicknamed HollywoodLies claims the “feeling is mutual” between Jameel and Brown and alleges to have the scoop about why “Chris doesn’t like Rihanna’s boyfriend.” A seemingly fake “source” is quoted by the often discredited site as saying, “Chris thinks Hassan is not good enough for Rihanna.” Almost comically, the same almost assuredly nonexistent “source” adds, “Chris just can’t believe all the engagement rumors, he thinks there’s no way Rihanna would marry this dude.” The blog further writes, “While Chris thinks Rihanna won’t marry Hassan, it should be noted that they aren’t even engaged.”

Of course, the untrue engagement rumors about Rihanna and Jameel were first spread by none other than HollywoodLife in early December. And just two weeks ago, the habitually debunked outlet published an article about how Rihanna hid her ring finger when she attended Jay-Z’s concert in L.A. The reality, however, is Rihanna didn’t hide her left hand in photos. She didn’t have a diamond on because, as Gossip Cop was first to report, she’s 100 percent not engaged to Jameel.

Regardless, the new cockamamie report comes on the heels of yesterday’s fabricated story about how Jameel isn’t a “fan of” Rihanna’s ex-boyfriend because he thinks Brown is a “woman beater.” As Gossip Cop noted, that’s not “exclusive” nor a scoop. Everyone thinks Brown is a “woman beater” after he infamously assaulted and pled guilty to attacking Rihanna in February 2009.

As Gossip Cop has repeatedly proven, HollywoodLies simply makes up tall tales. More than seven months ago, for example, we busted the site when it published a totally fictitious article that claimed Rihanna was pregnant with either Brown or Drake’s baby. In that made-up story, the blog asserted Rihanna didn’t know who the dad was because she was “going back and forth between” the two men, but if it ended up being Brown’s child, it “would actually work out pretty well” because they “have maintained a great (and flirty) friendship over the years.” Of course, the Barbadian singer was never pregnant with either man’s baby, and the outlet’s contention runs contrary to Rihanna telling Vanity Fair two years ago about Brown: “We’re not friends.”

Irrespective of the outlet fabricating its story about Rihanna’s current boyfriend Jameel not being a “fan of” Brown, and HollywoodLife’s pattern of publishing fake news, Gossip Cop still fact-checked its latest claim. We’re told the site’s article is completely phony. An actual Brown insider assures us no one “close” to the singer is sharing this bogus information with that blog or anyone else.
