Are Julia Roberts and Lady Gaga feuding? That's the bogus rumor being spread in the tabloids. Gossip Cop can debunk the nonexistent drama.
According to Life & Style, the actress snubbed the singer at the Critics' Choice Awards earlier this month. A supposed source tells the magazine that Roberts "walked up and hugged" Gaga's A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper, "and completely ignored Gaga next to him." The alleged insider goes on to say the singer "seemed annoyed that Julia wasn't singing her praises," adding, "Approval from Julia would mean that Gaga has officially been accepted as an actress, but Julia thinks Gaga is overrated." NW regurgitated the phony report without bothering to do any fact-checking.
Gossip Cop, however, checked in with sources close to the situation, and no one was aware of any friction between Roberts and Gaga. It's worth noting, dozens of entertainment news outlets covered the Critics' Choice Awards, but no other publication has reported the incident described above. That's because it never happened.
Also, Life & Style seems to enjoy throwing the singer into fake feuds with other celebrities. Earlier this month, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Gaga was battling with Gwen Stefani over the popularity of their Las Vegas residencies. In reality, the two singers have publicly supported each other's shows.
Meanwhile, if the tabloids were to be believed, Roberts is at war with nearly every celebrity in Hollywood. Gossip Cop recently called out NW for alleging Roberts was feuding with Jennifer Aniston over who's new TV series would be a bigger hit. The story made little sense, considering that Roberts' Amazon show debuted last year, while Aniston's upcoming Apple series is still in production. Regardless, a rep for Aniston assured us the story was nonsense.
Gossip Cop also recently debunked a story about Roberts fighting with Reese Witherspoon over her niece, Emma Roberts. Shortly before that, another magazine wrongly reported Roberts was making a movie with Sandra Bullock after ending their supposed feud. Prior to that, Gossip Cop shot down a tabloid story claiming Gwyneth Paltrow was furious at Roberts for hanging out with her ex-husband, Chris Martin.
Roberts' other famous opponents over the years, according to the tabloids, have included Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence. The actress's countless fights with other stars are flat-out fictional. Gaga is the latest celebrity being pitted against Roberts, but there's simply no feud between the two.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
