A story about Sofia Richie and Scott Disick's "adventurous sex" was made-up for clicks. And this isn't the first time that's happened. Gossip Cop can bust the sordid tale and reveal how it's part of a disturbing pattern.
While HollywoodLife seems to fabricate articles about celebrities on a regular basis, they are usually inspired by something in the news. For instance, now that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have welcomed their third child, the site has been on a tear manufacturing bogus related stories. But sometimes these tales are apropos of nothing. They come off as completely random, but the choice of topic is a calculated one.
People are generally interested in stories about sex. And so, Gossip Cop has noticed HollywoodLies, as it's nicknamed, fudging reports about the sex lives of Kardashian and West, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson, Kylie Jenner and Tyga, Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima, and Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, just to name a few. (See screengrabs of some headlines below.) In all of these cases, the blog wants readers to believe someone close to these stars is spilling the intimate, private details of what goes on behind closed doors.
No reputable publication has ever reported such things because it's not something that's really leaked to the media and discussed. But here's what HollywoodLies is now claiming about Richie and Disick. "Scott Disick is having a blast in the bedroom with girlfriend Sofia Richie. We've got exclusive details on how she's more adventurous than Kourtney Kardashian," boasts the outlet.
A so-called "source close" to Disick is quoted as saying, "One of the things that has Scott so sprung on Sofia is their sex life. He's actually pretty respectful and doesn't share a ton of details, but he does hint that Sofia is way more adventurous in bed than Kourtney ever was." So, Disick is "respectful" and "doesn't share" much, but someone "close" to him somehow knew details and saw fit to blab to HollywoodLies?
This almost assuredly fictional tipster goes on to contend, "Scott used to complain that Kourtney didn't have enough sex drive, that she couldn't keep up with him. With Sofia there is no disconnect there, he says she's just as much of a nymphomaniac as he is." So, now this person is supposedly bad-mouthing Kardashian and talking about a 19-year-old having an uncontrollable need for sex?
HollywoodLies actually goes on to opine, "Sofia's just a teenager still so no wonder she has all of that energy. Kourt has three young kids with Scott so she probably didn't have the time for wild sex antics that he craves." And it gets worse from there, with the apparently invented source also maintaining, "Scott's got a bit of an obsession with threesomes so he's been trying to make that happen and apparently Sofia hasn't closed the door on it."
The one with the "obsession" is the online publication itself. While the website was seemingly motivated to concoct this narrative because Disick and Richie have been showing a lot of PDA, this isn't the first time the site has trotted down this dirty road with the pair. Less than a month ago, Gossip Cop exposed HollywoodLies for making-up a similar piece in which it claimed Disick was boasting about his sex life with Richie. Now we're told the blog is downright "disgusting" for continuing with such a fake storyline.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
