August 4th, 2012 3:07pm EDT
You can't go one week without hearing a ridiculous story involving some of your favorite celebrities. Thankfully, the Starpulse Rumor Patrol is here to sort out what's real and what's fake.
Cuba Gooding Jr. Is Home Free: It must have been a stressful couple of hours for Cuba Gooding Jr., who had an arrest warrant issued against him following a pushing match with a female bartender. However, it looks like Cuba is out of the weeds - because the warrant was dropped.
Verdict: False. Cuba is still set to be arraigned by the time you read this article, where he will enter a plea and have a court date set. Currently, the female bartender no longer wishes to press charges.
The Casper Smart Peep Show/Gay Massage Rumors: After Jennifer Lopez' boyfriend Caspar Smart was spotting in some… unseemly areas, notably walking into a door marked "24 Hour Peepshow," rumors erupted ranging from a gay massage to regularly checking out peepshows.
Verdict: False, on all counts. Turns out Casper Smart was getting a tattoo and a haircut. The tattoo parlor's entrance is right next to the peep show. While he was "getting his massage," Casper was actually at GNC buying vitamins - for which he has a receipt.
Spice Girls Reuniting For Olympics: Victoria Beckham's photo of a studded microphone re-sparked rumors that the Brit girl group Spice Girls were re-uniting to close the Olympics in London.
Verdict: Plausible. It would make sense that some big group is going to close out the Olympics, but we doubt the Spice Girls would be the headliner of a star-studded gala. A cameo, however, would be most welcome!
Katy Perry and John Mayer Dating: Is the latest music couple a growing relationship between recently-divorced Katy Perry and serial dater John Mayer?
Verdict: Sounds like it. They've been spotted on more than one date, and we know both are very single. You also don't take someone to the Chateau Marmont just for the hell of it.
