Taylor Swift's reaction to Ed Sheeran admitting he hooked up with her friends was seemingly made up by the same untrustworthy webloid that's been caught pulling similar stunts before. Allow Gossip Cop to explain what's going on.

On Tuesday, Rolling Stone published its new cover story on Sheeran, in which he admits that being best friends with Swift has led to flings with some of her pals. Now HollywoodLife is announcing, "Taylor Swift Upset Ed Sheeran Slept With Members Of Her Girl Squad? The Truth." Confession: It always makes Gossip Cop laugh when HollywoodLies uses "The Truth" in one of its pieces.

Anyway, the story says, "Ed Sheeran made jaws drop when he dished on how he's hooked up with Taylor Swift's friends in the past, and HollywoodLife.com has exclusively learned Taylor's reaction to Ed's comments. Her response is going to surprise you!" Another confession: It always makes Gossip Cop rolls its eyes when HollywoodLies says it's "exclusively learned" something.

In this case, a so-called "source" is quoted as saying, "Taylor Swift, 27, is definitely okay with Ed Sheeran, 26, having relations with some of her friends in her squad." Yes, because a real person would say "Taylor Swift, 27" and "Ed Sheeran, 26" in normal conversation. Third confession: It always makes Gossip Cop laugh and roll its eyes when HollywoodLies publishes such obviously manufactured quotes.

This likely fictional "source" goes on, "She feels that she would rather have them hook up with someone like Ed then with some random guy. Taylor is not mad nor does she feel disrespected in any way. She respects Ed and believes that he handled it like an adult."

Ah, but if only the bad blog acted like an adult, too, and didn't resort to fabricating "exclusives." HollywoodLies falsely claimed to know Swift's reaction to Kanye West's hospitalization. HollywoodLies falsely claimed to know Swift's reaction to Drake dating Jennifer Lopez. And HollywoodLies also falsely claimed to know Swift's reaction to Tom Hiddleston's Golden Globes win.

Sensing a pattern? But time and again, Gossip Cop has confirmed that no person legitimately close to Swift is talking to this disreputable outlet. Now here we are once more, and we can reveal nothing's changed. Whatever the superstar's reaction to Sheeran's comments may be, no one in her camp is discussing it with HollywoodLife.

Our Verdict

Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
