HollywoodLife is giving us whiplash. For the second time in less than two months, the webloid has flip-flopped on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West getting divorced. Predictably, after picking up another false tabloid story, the site is now once again lying about having the “truth.” Gossip Cop can expose the deceptions.
As Gossip Cop reported, in early November Life & Style wrongly alleged Kardashian and West were set to divorce weeks before they welcome their third child. Gossip Cop immediately, and exclusively, busted the false report. But HollywoodLies, as it’s known, regurgitated the untrue claims even after they were debunked. Then after a full day went by, the blog flip-flopped and announced it learned the “truth,” that Kardashian and West were not, in fact, splitting up. Of course, if the outlet had real insight, it would’ve known that from the start, as Gossip Cop did.
Now in December, history is repeating itself. On Wednesday, Star claimed Kardashian and West were on the verge of a $1 billion divorce. Again, Gossip Cop confirmed such allegations were erroneous. Again, HollywoodLies picked up the tabloid story without any fact-checking. And this time, we even noted that we expected the online publication would soon reverse course and announce it had the “truth.” (See first screegrab below.)
But first, the blog decided to dig itself into a deeper hole by manufacturing its own “exclusive” in which it claimed Kardashian and West’s marriage had been “pushed to the limit.” The inaccurate piece was only concocted to piggyback off the Star article. And, far from having any merit, it actually contained notable errors, as Gossip Cop pointed out. Yet now, after first regurgitating the divorce contentions and then adding to them, HollywoodLies has the gall to run a new “exclusive,” announcing, “Are Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Divorcing After 3rd Baby? The Truth.” (See second screengrab below.)
Now in this new flip-flop, the webloid claims it “heard EXCLUSIVELY that there’s no truth to the story” from Star about an impending divorce. In fact, the site makes a point of contending, “Actually the couple isn’t having any troubles at all right now.” But that’s not what outlet claimed literally just hours before when it maintained in its “exclusive” that Kardashian and West have been “going through difficult times for a while now” and that their relationship had reached its “limit.” This is exactly why our heads are spinning.
To recap: In early November, HollywoodLies said Kardashian and West were divorcing and then flip-flopped with the “truth.” In late December, HollywoodLies said Kardashian and West were divorcing, penned a follow-up story about marital woes, and then flip-flopped with the “truth.” At no point has the blog actually known what’s really going on. That’s why it copies from tabloids and then later contradicts them.
And in all of these instances, Gossip Cop has actually delivered the real “truth,” whereas the faux news site is just playing pretend and feeding readers false information in the process. HollywoodLies wants fans to think it’s in the know, but it’s actions prove it’s anything but.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
