“Twilight” Cast Rumors Busted: Part 1
By Tracy Rosenfield
HollywoodNews.com: Everyone pays a price for being popular. In the case of some of the “Twilight” actors, it’s incessant, annoying rumors about the actors’ personal and professional lives. Let’s debunk the rumors that have hit the cast in just the past two weeks! And if these are just from the past two weeks, imagine what they deal with every month or every year. These actors get credit for having very thick skin.
1) Started April 13th by Perez Hilton: Robert Pattinson is shacking up with Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester and was spotted leaving her NYC apartment in the early morning hours.
Truth: I am not going to get into who Rob IS shacking up with, but Meester’s sources confirm there’s no Robster, Reester, Leighbert, Robton, RobLeigh….you get the picture. Thanks to Gossip Cop for confirming this as a rumor.
2) Started April 21st at “Global Associated News”: Actress Kristen Stewart is reported to be in serious condition and taken to Golden State Regional Hospital after a minor traffic accident that escalated into a physical altercation in Fullerton CA, a suburb 30 minutes south east of Los Angeles.
Truth: This story is from the fake new site called FakeAWish.com. (FakeAWish.com and “Global Associated News” are one and the same.) Granted, FakeAWish.com notes on its site that it fabricates stories “for the purpose of entertainment,” but let’s not scare people’s friends, family and fans, shall we?
3) Started April 23rd by Hollywoodlife.com: Robert Pattinson is quitting acting to focus on music.
Truth: This is a simple case of Hollywoodlife taking words out of context to develop a gripping headline. Rob has professed in several interviews that he wishes he had more time for music. Hollywoodlife turned this statement into Rob quitting acting for good to focus on music. No truth to this whatsoever. Have you seen Rob’s filming schedule? BUSTED by Gossip Cop.
4) Started approximately April 24th: Robert Pattinson is going to reportedly star with Azerbaijan’s Eurovision 2010 singer Safura Alizadeh in her video clip “Drip Drop.”
Truth: There is none. Totally fabricated rumor. Thanks to Gossip Cop for busting.
