A story about Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth “adding to their family” with a new dog is made-up. It’s also a bait-and-switch, as readers are initially led to believe the report is about having a baby. Gossip Cop can bust this disingenuous narrative.

“Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth Adding To Their Family In The Next Few Months — Baby On The Way?” reads the misleading headline from HollywoodLife. Any rational person would reasonably interpret that title as being about a pregnancy. Indeed, the intro states, “Dying to see Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth become parents?! Word has it, the couple is looking to expand their family soon! Here’s the EXCLUSIVE details!” But it’s only towards the end of the second paragraph that HollywoodLies, as it’s known, clarifies.

A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Miley wants to add to her household in a big way and Liam is completely down with her plans, but don’t get too excited because the way she wants to add to things is not with a baby but with more dogs. And she is hoping to do it in the next few months.” That’s right: After purposefully teasing fans with the possibility that the couple is “adding” a “baby” to “their family,” it’s revealed the story is actually about a dog.

And Gossip Cop suspects the only reason the webloid crafted this faux “exclusive” is because just days ago, it was claimed by an Australian tabloid that Cyrus and Hemsworth are ready to “start a family in 2018.” Gossip Cop debunked that tale, whereas HollywoodLies picked it up as fact. Now the site is flip-flopping, with its supposed source asserting, “[Cyrus] is very chill as we all know and more dogs is what she wants to have a handle on and is not ready to start a family right now.”

But if the outlet really had an “insider” as it purports, it wouldn’t have spread the misinformation earlier this week only to reverse course now. Cyrus is well-known to be a pet-lover, so getting another dog in the next year is not out of the realm of possibility. That’s likely why HollywoodLies went with this angle; it’s believable. But that doesn’t mean it’s legitimate. On the contrary, Gossip Cop is told the story is simply made-up. And the above photo, by the way, isn’t even recent. It’s from Cyrus and Hemsworth’s Christmas celebration in 2012.
