Rumor Patrol: Naomi Campbell Mugged, Megan Fox Dies, Kris Allen Crashes
January 6th, 2013 3:07pm EST
Naomi Campbell Mugged: The infamous model says she was trying to hail a cab in Paris when she was viciously mugged by goons. She suffered a torn ligament in the attack and has been photographed in a wheelchair.
Verdict: Doubtful. There are some odd discrepancies in this story. For one, the Paris police were never notified, and thus cannot confirm the event ever took place. Campbell whisked herself out of the country to see a doctor for a leg injury, so that appears to be true.
Megan Fox Dies: The beautiful Transformers star died tragically in an auto accident on January 3.
Verdict: False. The writers at hoax site Global Associated News began the rumor, and then the trend "RIP Megan Fox" spread like wildfire on Twitter (note: never assume trends are true). Fox then opened up her own Twitter account. Perhaps for her next trick she will turn water into wine.
Kris Allen In Serious Car Accident: American Idol Kris Allen (yeah, we forgot about him, too) was severely injured in a car accident Tuesday night.
Verdict: True. The singer broke his right arm, along with several other severe injuries. His mother tweeted, "He’s in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while. Prayers welcome please! #headoncollision."
"Kristopher and [his wife] Katy are both pretty beat up but ALIVE! Thank you, Jesus! They are setting his arm now and will have surgery tomorrow. Zorro is fine too! Very shook up, but not injured."
