Halle Berry did NOT throw out her Hollywood Walk of Fame plaque in the garbage, despite a newly published story that claims a maintenance worker found the award in a trash can outside her home. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this false report. We’re told the story is both “ridiculous” and “not true.”

According to Star, a so-called “friend” of Berry’s says any celebrity can buy themselves a star on the Walk of Fame by writing a $30,000 check to the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, and now “Halle feels the Walk of Fame has been cheapened, and she doesn’t want to be associated with it anymore.” The supposed “friend” further tells the tabloid that the Oscar-winning actress is “being a real diva” and believes the plaque is “meaningless” and that she’s “above awards like that.”

Did Berry also dump her Academy Award in the trash? Of course, not. And while it’s true there’s a $30,000 application fee for a star on the Walk of Fame, it’s hardly an award money can buy. Receiving the honor requires a lengthy and competitive selection process.

Star does not exactly have a stellar record when it comes to reporting about Berry. Gossip Cop has repeatedly corrected the tabloid for falsely claiming that her marriage to Olivier Martinez is “falling apart” and that he moved out. In any event, Gossip Cop spoke to a source connected to Berry, and we’re exclusively told the tale about her Hollywood Walk of Fame plaque is “not true” and “ridiculous.”
