June 22nd, 2013 12:07pm 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.
Kimye Baby Rumors: Did Kim Kardashian and Kanye west really name their daughter North? Will Kim make $3 million off the first photos of her newborn child?
Verdict: True and Possibly. Several news outlets found a copy of North West's birth certificate to confirm the odd name and the lack of a middle name. It had been rumored that North was just a joke to keep the media from knowing her real name, but turned out not to be true.
As for the story over the first photos, RumorFix confirms that Kim has received a $3 million offer from a magazine for the rights. Despite it being the buzziest birth in quite some time, the figure pales in comparison to Brad Pit and Angelina Jolie's $15 million sum for photos of twins Knox and Vivienne.
Paula Deen Evades Today Show Following Racist Comments: Paula Deen was reportedly set to be interview on the Today Show by Matt Lauer before she cited being "too tired" for the show and backing out at the last moment.
Verdict: True. "This morning, although we have not spoken to her — she has not called us — her publicity people have told us she’s exhausted and will not be showing up,” Lauer said, after explaining that the interview was agreed to be focused on her racist comments. Deen has been blasted this week after a disposition was released quoting her as saying, "Well what I would really like is a bunch of little n***ers to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties," in reference to planning a wedding. Lauer later tweeted, “Hoping to get more on the Paula Deen situation soon. Very confusing."
Britney Spears Pregnancy Scare: Did Britney almost ruin her upcoming Vegas residency by getting pregnant?
Verdict: False. Allegedly, Spears told friends during a dinner that she had a pregnancy scare with David Lucado that turned out to be nothing. Rumorfix now reports that Spears never even shared said story, let alone had a pregnancy scare.
Miranda Cosgrove "Disfigured And Disabled" Following Tour Bus Crash: Did Miranda's 2011 tour bus crash leave the young singer "disfigured?"
Verdict: The Courts Will Decide. Miranda is now suing over the crash, saying she and the other passengers in the tour bus were left "disfigured and disabled" when it crashed into an overturned tractor in Illinois. Cosgrove broke her ankle in the accident and was forced to cancel the rest of her tour. TMZ reports, citing the lawsuit papers, that each passenger is seeking more than $50,000 in damages.
