Is Justin Bieber really planning to turn his hit song “Despacito” into a movie? One of the tabloids claims the singer wants to star in a big-screen adaptation of his track, but Gossip Cop looked into the story and we’ve exclusively learned the truth.

Bieber sang in Spanish for the first time in his career for a remix version of Luis Fonsi’s track featuring Daddy Yankee, which quickly became one of this past summer’s biggest songs. According to Star, the singer now wants to star in a film inspired by the single. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Justin’s had film and TV parts before, but this would be his first top-billed scripted role! It’ll be romantic, funny and very caliente – like a modernized Elvis-type movie starring Justin.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a reliable source close to Bieber, who exclusively assures us the singer isn’t working on turning “Despacito” into a film. We’re told the tabloid’s claim otherwise is simply “not true.” It should be noted, out of Bieber’s large discography, it’s odd Star chose “Despacito” to be a potential movie considering the Spanish track isn’t technically his song. The original version didn’t even feature the pop star. Regardless, we’re told no such film is in development.

Unfortunately, Star is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to publishing bogus stories about the singer, so this latest fabrication comes as no surprise. Gossip Cop recently busted the tabloid for making up a report about Bieber’s “lonely life,” which supposedly consisted of spending each night alone at a Hollywood dive bar. Naturally, there was no truth to the story. We also corrected the magazine for falsely claiming Bieber got banned from a gym after getting into a fist fight during a basketball game. No such incident occurred, and the publication’s latest article is equally phony.
