Miley Cyrus is one of the biggest pop stars in the world, which means she’s also one of the biggest tabloid targets. Gossip Cop frequently debunks false stories about the singer. Here are five wrong rumors.
In August, Gossip Cop busted the National Enquirer for falsely claiming that Liam Hemsworth had dumped Cyrus over her “wild ways.” The magazine alleged that the singer was partying nonstop and her fiance had called off their engagement as a result. Not only has time proven the story untrue, but around the same time it was published, Hemsworth posted a Twitter photo of himself on a walk with Cyrus and their dog, along with the caption, “Strolls with my girls.”
When Cyrus deleted her Instagram photos in July, Star wrongly reported that she did so because she was “embarrassed” by her partying past. The story didn’t make much sense, considering that the singer kept her Twitter history perfectly intact. The real reason that Cyrus deleted her Instagram photos, as noted by “Entertainment Tonight,” is that she’s “working on new music and plans to come back with a brand new Instagram, with photos to promote her new music.”
In March, Gossip Cop called out Life & Style for making up a story about Cyrus helping Justing Bieber and Selena Gomez find a house. The outlet claimed the singer was advising the pair about the best oceanfront “love nests” in Malibu. Not only did we debunk the bogus premise when it first emerged, but Bieber and Gomez broke up just a few weeks later.
Gossip Cop corrected NW in January after the tabloid claimed that Cyrus and Hemsworth secretly got married during their New Year’s trip to Australia. The outlet didn’t provide a single detail about the couple’s supposed ceremony, so we were quite skeptical of the claim. Our doubts were confirmed after checking in with a source close to the situation, who assured us the two hadn’t tied the knot. In fact, shortly before the report was published, Cyrus had said she didn’t “envision marriage” anytime soon.
And finally, Gossip Cop called out HollywoodLife last November for baselessly speculating that Cyrus showed off a “baby bump” in an Instagram photo she posted to celebrate Thanksgiving. Cyrus herself dismissed the pregnancy rumors on Twitter, writing, “RUDE!!! Not pregnant just eating a [expletive] ton of tufurkey.” As time has shown, the singer never had a child and still isn’t expecting nearly one year later.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
