Is Paris Jackson using the dating app Raya for lesbian one-night-stands? That’s the latest rumor, courtesy of the tabloids. Gossip Cop looked into the suspicious claim.

The allegation can be found in the pages of the National Enquirer, under the headline, “Paris Jackson Found Lesbian Love!” According to the supermarket tabloid, “Paris Jackson is boy-crazy no more! Michael Jackson’s teenage wild child likes the ladies!” It’s specifically alleged the 19-year-old has “signed up on Raya, a dating app for celebrities, to arrange same-sex one-night-stands!”

“Paris has made no secret of having crushes on girls in the past and wants to keep her options open,” a so-called “source” is quoted as saying. “She’s not interested in making a big statement about her sexuality, but she’s having fun chatting to sexy women online. She’s only looking for something casual.”

As proof, the gossip magazine features of photo of Jackson with pal Sofia Richie (like the one above), as if that actually backs up its random assertions. In fact, on the contrary, the dubious publication doesn’t seem to have any evidence that Jackson’s “searching for same-sex sessions on [the] celeb dating app.” And frankly, it’s no one’s business whether Jackson is interested in men, women or both.

That said, Gossip Cop has learned she’s not opposed to using dating apps. But she is not using any service for seedy purposes, as this salacious tale suggests, with our contact exclusively telling us the story is “rubbish.” It’s also worth noting the National Enquirer has been peddling untrue stories about Jackson for years.

Back in 2012, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Jackson was going to do a reality show with Bobbi Kristina Brown. And much more recently, last month we debunked an article that wrongly alleged Jackson was joining “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” The outlet’s track record leaves a lot to be desired.
