Rihanna is NOT going bald after years of wearing “heavy weaves,” despite a nasty new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this rumor, which was started by a webloid that has constantly gotten stories wrong about the singer.

According to MediaTakeOut, Rihanna is “going bald after years of coloring and heavy weaves.” The webloid further alleges that her “edges are looking extra thin.” Alongside a photo of the singer wearing her light brown hair pulled up into a tight ponytail, the blog covers its false premise by noting, “Rihanna still has enough edges to reverse whatever is happening” but “she needs to start taking better care of her hair.” The site ends its mean-spirted and inaccurate piece by saying, “As big as her forehead is… she can’t afford to lose any of her edges.”

First off, MediaFakeOut, as its known, has a weird obsession with wanting female celebrities bald. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the webloid for fabricating a story about Kim Kardashian going bald. The webloid also has a poor track record when it comes to Rihanna. Just last month, Gossip Cop busted the site for falsely reporting that she assaulted BET’s Stephen Hill. Gossip Cop also corrected the blog in March when it wrongly claimed her song “B*tch Better Have My Money” was about Beyonce. It’s actually about her accountant. Regardless, Gossip Cop checked into the site’s new claim about her losing her hair, and we’re told by an insider it’s a bald faced lie.
