Katy Perry is not using Robert Pattinson to break into acting, despite a wholly made-up report. Gossip Cop can correct this fabrication. We're told it's "not true."
The ridiculous allegation comes from Celeb Dirty Laundry, which wrongly claims that Perry is "using" Pattinson to "break into the acting world." According to the site, the singer is "desperate" to secure an acting career, and is intentionally "hooking up" with Pattinson to "gain a foothold" into the profession. The bad blog goes on to contend that "given Katy's own lack of success" in the business, Pattinson is the perfect candidate to help Perry jumpstart a movie career.
In an attempt to support its bogus premise, the outlet notes that Perry's "arch-nemesis" Taylor Swift has had a far more "successful acting run" than her. "It's easy to see why Katy would do anything in her power to break into acting," maintains the the often disproven website. Not surprisingly, CDL has no evidence or actual sources to back up its claim that Perry is "using" the Twilight star to secure a career in acting, so it lazily resorted to dragging in Swift to muddy up its made-up tale.
Significantly, much of the site's article is laced with inaccurate information. Perry and Pattinson have been friends for a number of years, and it seems a little odd that the singer would suddenly "use" him at this point in their friendship to help her become a movie star. What's more, even if they were "hooking up, which of course they are not, it would never translate into Perry securing acting jobs. She famously dated Orlando Bloom, a successful actor, and he didn't get her any film work. Regardless, Gossip Cop still investigated, and a source close to Perry assures us the entire story is simply "not true."
Remember, this isn't the first time Gossip Cop has busted the site for fabricating bogus stories about Perry and Pattinson. In 2015, for example, we corrected the repeatedly discredited outlet for falsely alleging Pattinson regretted proposing to FKA Twigs instead of Perry. That report wasn't true, and the same goes for this latest piece of fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
