Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are not eloping during their Australian New Year’s vacation, despite a claim. A certain outlet is twisting another publication’s reporting and tacking on an untruthful allegation. Gossip Cop can bust the report.

Earlier this week, Us Weekly ran an article online about Cyrus and Hemsworth’s holiday plans. The magazine reported they plan to spend Christmas in Nashville before going back to Los Angeles and then onto Australia to spend time with the actor’s family. In the piece, a source was quoted as saying, “Miley and Liam still have zero plans of having an actual wedding. They consider themselves married, but don’t want a full wedding right now.”

Bizarrely, Celebrity Insider read that and concluded that Cyrus and Hemsworth may be eloping while Down Under. Without even crediting the original report, the blog misrepresents that by contending, “We have learned that Miley Cyrus and her fiance Liam Hemsworth are set to spend their New Years Eve in Australia. Now, sources have revealed that the couple is apparently planning on eloping while there!” To be clear: The Us Weekly article said nothing about eloping.

The online outlet even copied and pasted the aforementioned source quote about not getting married and twists it to suggest that Cyrus and Hemsworth could use their vacation as an “opportunity to have a small, intimate wedding” in Australia. That’s the opposite of what was actually said in the original statement. Somehow Us Weekly reporting Cyrus and Hemsworth are going to Australia and have no interest in having a wedding was manipulated into Celebrity Insider claiming Cyrus and Hemsworth are going to Australia and may be eloping while there.

It’s not like the website has any additional reporting to support its contention about an elopement. In fact, the site doesn’t even acknowledge that the bulk of its story came from another publication. The main information is taken directly from Us Weekly, which isn’t mentioned or credited once. Incredibly, Celebrity Insider uses phrasing like “our source” when it doesn’t actually have a source of its own at all. It’s bad enough when the blog regurgitates untrue claims and cites the tabloid that originally printed the information, but it’s just as awful when it outright makes-up claims.

Regardless, a source close to Cyrus assures Gossip Cop on background that she’s 100 percent not marrying Hemsworth in Australia over the holidays. But it’s not just us saying that. The actress-singer’s mom, Tish, told Mario Lopez on his radio show, “On With Mario,” that Miley “is not eloping.” Feel free to return to this story in a few months to see how Gossip Cop reports facts, while others are duping readers with fiction. UPDATE: As we rightly reported, Hemsworth and Cyrus did not wed while on vacation in Australia over the holidays.
