Was Liam Neeson really caught on camera wandering the halls of a hotel completely nude? That’s the bizarre claim in one of this week’s new tabloids, which says a hotel employee tried to sell the alleged video before the actor got his lawyers involved. Gossip Cop, however, can exclusively set the record straight.
According to the National Enquirer, security footage captured Neeson roaming the halls of a California hotel while naked, but the actor hired attorneys to conceal the tape. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Liam was embarrassed to be caught in such a vulnerable moment. Exactly why he was wandering down the corridor butt-naked is still a mystery. It’s a sign that all isn’t well with him.”
The outlet’s questionable insider goes on to speculate Neeson is acting out because he’s never gotten over the death of wife Natasha Richardson, who was tragically killed in a skiing accident in 2009. “The whole family has struggled with Liam’s inability to communicate, but this latest blip could be the biggest indication yet he’s suffering from PTSD,” the supposed source says. “The death of his wife is still a heavy weight, and it continues to haunt Liam.”
But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Neeson, who exclusively assures us the tabloid’s report is simply “foolish.” There’s no footage of the actor wandering the halls of a hotel while nude, because the alleged incident never occurred. The Enquirer either has unreliable sources or nonexistent ones. If the magazine did in fact concoct this story out of thin air, it’s quite distasteful to use the death of the actor’s wife as inspiration for a phony article.
Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by the publication’s inaccurate reporting. Gossip Cop previously busted the tabloid for baselessly speculating Neeson had cancer simply because he looked thinner than usual at an event. However, the actor is in fine physical health, and this latest article suggesting he’s losing his mind is equally bogus.
