Justin Bieber and Cheryl Cole are not collaborating on a song, nor did her boyfriend Liam Payne arrange for any such meeting, despite a tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this inaccurate story about Bieber working on music with Cole. We're told it's 100 percent untrue.
According to The Sun, "Cheryl is heading to America to meet with Justin Bieber about a possible collaboration... and it's all set up by boyfriend Liam." A so-called "insider" is quoted telling the British tabloid that while in Los Angeles, Cole is going "to discuss finally doing that track together." The alleged source adds in bizarrely choppy language, "Set-up by Liam... a big favor... Biebs has said 'cool, let's hang out and talk' but he can be notoriously flaky and ruthless when it comes to his music."
Allow Gossip Cop to be even more ruthless. Once again, The Sun is off-key with its reporting about Bieber. He and Cole are not set to talk about a collaboration. A mutual pal of ours and Bieber's exclusively assures us it's "not true."
Sadly, this is hardly the first story about Bieber that the British tabloid has gotten wrong. In 2013, for example, we busted the publication when it falsely alleged Bieber wanted to buy a home in Dubai. At the time, the outlet inaccurately maintained the singer was "looking at houses with a view to a longer-term stay." That same year, Gossip Cop also corrected the paper when it ran an unfounded article about Britney Spears being a mentor to Bieber and trying to "talk sense into him" after some previous bad behavior.
And just last year, Gossip Cop, we schooled the tabloid again when it mistakenly asserted that Bieber wanted to hire a British butler. The paper contended the singer got the idea for a "manservant" after watching the "TV series 'Gotham,' in which English actor Sean Pertwee plays Batman's butler Alfred Pennyworth." Actually, the only thing that got served was bad dish from that publication. Much like those articles, the latest about Bieber and Cole possibly collaborating is similarly wrong.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
