Jesse Williams was not “spotted” on a date with his “new girlfriend,” despite a manufactured report. The woman in question, “Grey’s Anatomy” TV writer Krista Vernoff, slammed the outlet on Twitter for its inaccurate tale.

Along with paparazzi photos of the actor, the repeatedly discredited MediaTakeOut blares in a headline, “Actor/Activist Jesse Williams Is Spotted Out On a DATE… And His New Girlfriend… IS A BLONDE!!!! (Is Jesse… In a SUNKEN PLACE??). The site goes on to claim in its accompanying article that Williams, who recently filed for divorce from his wife Aryn Drake-Lee, was caught in a “passionate discussion” with his “date” at Little Doms restaurant in Los Feliz.

Let Gossip Cop set the record straight on this wholly made-up report. The “Grey’s Anatomy” actor was not on a date. In fact, William’s so-called girlfriend, Krista Vernoff, is a TV writer who works on the show. After MediaFakeOut, as it’s known, published the phony story, Vernoff blasted the webloid in a series of tweets. “Hey Jesse Williams has a new blonde SHOWRUNNER (not girlfriend) you stalker a**holes! If you look at that picture, I am literally holding a pen in my hand. (Such an excellent dating move!),” she wrote.

The screenwriter continued, “Let this be a lesson, friends. Don’t believe what you read about your favorite stars because it is 98% manufactured bullsh*t! This would be hilarious and very good for my self-esteem, were it not for the fact that they are stalking Jesse and lying about him endlessly. Jesse Williams and I were passionately discussing his new storylines on #greysanatomy and the trashy gossip rags have us on a date.” Gossip Cop couldn’t agree more. MediaTakeOut, which routinely publishes inaccurate stories in the name of online traffic, deserves every inch of criticism it gets for fabricating such ridiculous reports.
