Did Madonna really fire an assistant mid-flight? That’s the claim in one of this week’s new tabloids, but Gossip Cop has the exclusive truth.

An article in the latest issue of In Touch claims the singer flipped out on a recent flight from New York to Los Angeles after one of her assistants forget to bring along some important documents. A supposed “source” tells the magazine, “Madonna fired her on the spot, telling the poor girl, ‘You’re done here. Take the next plane back to NYC – you’re fired.’ Madonna expects her employees to be prepared.”

The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “Afterward, some of Madonna’s team joked that all future assistants should be fitted with a parachute, just in case Madonna wants to toss them off the plane.” Despite how unlikely this story sounds, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to the singer, who exclusively assures us the tabloid’s report is “false.” We’re told this alleged incident simply never occurred.

Of course, OK! has spread plenty of fake news about the singer in the past, so Gossip Cop wasn’t particularly surprised by the magazine’s latest phony article. We busted the publication earlier this year when it falsely claimed Madonna snubbed Kylie Jenner at a New York Fashion Week. In reality, photos showed the singer chatting up the reality star and her then-boyfriend, Tyga.

Last year, Gossip Cop called out the magazine after it wrongly reported Madonna and ex-husband Sean Penn were dating again. In reality, she simply attended the actor’s Haitian relief fundraiser. This latest article about a supposed mid-flight firing is simply more lies from the untrustworthy tabloid.
