December 21st, 2012 4:07pm EST
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.
Mila Kunis Called A Slur: Ukrainian actress Mila Kunis may not be coming home for Christmas. Reports say politician Igor Miroshnichenko called Mila a "zhydovka," which roughly translate to "dirty Jewess" and is used in the country to disparage those believed not to act as "true Ukrainians."
Verdict: True. Unfortunately, it appears the politician actually posted the slur on a Facebook page. The Simon Wiesenthal Center blasted the politican and sent a letter to the Prime Minister that reads in part: "It is a tragedy that even after the Holocaust and the demise of the Soviet Union such hatred and anti-Semitism is still a force in the mainstream of your county."
Demi Lovato Leaving X Factor: Demi appears to be leaving The X Factor after she filled Twitter with a bunch of goodbye messages directed at her fellow X Factor judges.
Verdict: Probably False. "Just saying goodbye for the season," a rep told Gossip Cop. Unless Demi has to go on tour for a new album, it appears that she will be staying on the show for the foreseeable future.
Ke$ha Forced To Sing Die Young: Ke$ha claims that she was against singing the lyrics to her song Die Young, now that the tune has been pulled from many radio stations following the Newtown school shootings.
Verdict: False. Ke$ha herself has come forward to say she misspoke on the issue, and that she made the claim during an emotion time. She writes, "After such a tragic event I was feeling a lot of emotion and sadness when I said I was forced to sing some of the lyrics to Die Young. Forced is not the right word. I did have some concerns about the phrase “die young” in the chorus when we were writing the lyrics especially because so many of my fans are young and that’s one reason why I wrote so many versions of this song. But the point of the song is the importance of living every day to the fullest and staying young at heart, and these are things I truly believe."
Chris Brown/Rihanna Shirt Sells Out: Did Chris Brown really make a shirt from this photo? And has he really sold out of it, at the price of $75?
Verdict: True. The shirt was originally $25, but apparently that was too good of a price as it flew off the shelves. The price was then hiked up to $75, but it still sold out!
