Miley Cyrus‘ musical collaboration with Ariana Grande is not making Kaitlynn Carter jealous, despite an untrue tabloid report. Gossip Cop looked into the story. It’s completely untrue.
Cyrus recently worked with Grande and Lana Del Rey on the song “Don’t Call Me Angel” for the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot, leading to a bogus rumor in the most recent issue of OK! The outlet alleges “Kaitlynn’s jealous streak” is causing problems in the face of the recent collaboration, specifically because of Grande. The tabloid points to a “flirtatious” moment in the music video for the track, as well as Cyrus and Grande’s rapport on social media, as evidence of a spark between the two pop stars.
“Miley’s hinted that she finds Ari attractive and that she’d totally go there, so it’s troubling for Kaitlynn,” an “insider” tells the magazine. The supposed source adds, “Kaitlynn’s worried she won’t be able to hold on to someone as fiery as Miley.”
Around the same time OK! went to print this week, news of Cyrus and Carter’s amicable split broke. The two remain friends and had leaned on each other during their respective breakups from Liam Hemsworth and Brody Jenner, but they’re now both single. Cyrus obviously hasn’t started dating Grande in the wake of her split from Carter. There was never any truth to the tabloid’s story.
Gossip Cop should also point out that the magazine’s “proof” is just as dubious as its “source.” Two women supporting each other on social media and complimenting one another doesn’t translate to romantic interest. That’s doubly true for two people who share similar experiences of successfully transitioning from a Disney star to an internationally acclaimed pop musician, despite intense scrutiny and constant rumors from the gossip industry.
OK! wasn’t the only tabloid to be exposed by the change in Cyrus and Carter’s relationship status. Earlier this week, Gossip Cop busted its sister publication, the National Enquirer, for an obviously phony story about Cyrus and Carter having a baby together. That report also came from imaginary sources. The high-profile nature of Cyrus’ divorce from Hemsworth and subsequent relationship with Carter inspired the tabloids to come up with fake scenarios. Both OK! and the Enquirer were caught red-handed this week when Cyrus and Carter split just before the magazine hit newsstands.
Gossip Cop also called out Star, yet another sister publication of the other tabloids, for an incorrect article about Cyrus joining Carter on the next season of The Hills: New Beginnings. Life & Style published a similarly phony piece about Cyrus and Carter buying an $8 million “love nest” together. Gossip Cop will keep holding these publications accountable regardless of Cyrus’ relationship status.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
