Orlando Bloom was not a "cheapskate" while out on a date with a woman in London, despite a fake news report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. We're told there's nothing true about the story.
It all begins, as if often does, with Star making up a wholly unsubstantiated article about a celebrity. This time around it's Bloom. And, according to the supermarket tabloid, "Bloom let his pretty date play sugar mama during a recent outing in London. The magazine alleges he was eating and drinking at the Dorchester Hotel, and "just shrugged when the bill came."
The outlet quotes one of its questionable sources as saying, "He said matter-of-factly that he'd forgotten his wallet. He didn't seen embarrassed in the slightest." "Orlando didn't even offer to bill it to his room. He just let his date pick up the tab," adds the seemingly phony tipster. After alleging that the woman was "taken aback," the tabloid's supposed source further contends, "He didn't mention paying her back or apologize. All he said was a casual 'thanks.'"
So, when exactly did this happen? The magazine doesn't mention that. And what exactly did Bloom's date look like? Was she tall or short, blonde or brunette, 25 or 75? The publication doesn't have any details about that either. Curiously, the magazine's "witness" overheard the entire conversation between "cheapskate" Bloom and his "date," but couldn't furnish specifics about when it allegedly took place or anything else?
The reason is simple. Star or maybe the magazine's untrustworthy source made up this fake news story. Still, it never happened. In fact, Gossip Cop reached out to a mutual friend of ours and Bloom's, and we were amused to hear that the actor hasn't been to the Dorchester Hotel "in years." Our impeccable source tells us the whole article is "completely false." Gossip Cop has also reached out to his rep.
The tabloid is not exactly an authority on Bloom. In March, we busted the publication when it falsely claimed Bloom was hooking up with Selena Gomez after breaking up with Katy Perry. That was quickly followed up by another untrue article that linked Bloom romantically to Nina Dobrev. Like those stories, the magazine has again proven it doesn't know a blooming thing about Orlando.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
