A new report claiming Selena Gomez calls Justin Bieber “my husband” is fake news. And not surprisingly, the made-up story comes from HollywoodLife, a site that’s so often shown to be fibbing that it’s also called HollywoodLies. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this fabrication. We’re told it’s simply “not true.”
According to the repeatedly disproven outlet, Gomez is so “committed to Justin,” she even “refers to him as her hubby.” The site actually tips off that it’s lying in the first paragraph of its article when it writes that Gomez and her friends “are in Cabo San Lucas for New Year’s Eve, with Justin reportedly on his way.” Of course, if the blog truly had a “source close to Selena” who contends she calls Bieber “my husband,” wouldn’t it know for sure whether he was “on his way” to Cabo San Lucas, rather than hedging by saying “reportedly”? That’s hardly the only sign pointing to HollywoodLies being caught once again spinning a tall tale.
After noting how not everyone is onboard with Gomez’s relationship with Bieber, the site’s seemingly fake “source” states, “She’s started calling him ‘my husband.'” Naturally, the habitually discredited outlet doesn’t mention to whom Gomez has allegedly called Bieber “my husband.” And isn’t it odd that legitimate outlets like People, for example, have not reported this, but only a blog that Gomez herself called “the worst” in an interview with Billboard? Does HollywoodLies really believe it can convince its readers that friends of Gomez would leak information about her to a website she detests?
Gossip Cop will cut to the chase: HollywoodLife sometimes publishes fake news. On December 8, for example, the site posted a made-up “exclusive” story that falsely claimed, “Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber Have ‘Epic’ New Year’s Eve Plans.” In that concocted tale, based on another one of its bogus sources, the outlet wrongly asserted Bieber was going to “whisk [Gomez] away on a trip where they can be totally alone, like a deserted island.”
That falsehood was then followed up on December 18 by an article titled, “Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Planning To Spend New Year’s Eve In New York” (below). As widely reported, however, Gomez is ringing in 2018 in Mexico. Yet now the untrustworthy outlet maintains Bieber and Gomez will not be in New York, but instead he’ll join her in Cabo San Lucas “reportedly.”
Regardless of HollywoodLies’ pattern of posting complete lies, Gossip Cop still fact-checked with an actual Gomez insider, and we’re assured she does not refer to Bieber as “my husband.” Our impeccable source says the site’s latest article is “not true.” As we enter the New Year, maybe it’s time for that outlet to resolve to stop making up fake news about Bieber and Gomez.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
