August 24th, 2013 9:07am 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.
Chris Brown Calls District Attorney Racist In Latest Twitter Rant: Chris Brown may be retiring from the rap game soon, but we sure hope he never quits Twitter. In his latest rant, did he really take on the DA that ordered he perform another 1,000 hours of community service after the validity of his previous service was questioned?
Verdict: True. In fact, we didn't even need to check screencaps to see if Brown really wrote some of his messages - because they're still up. He wrote across several tweets, "Most of the rap n---as make me sick! All political! It's hip hop. All that gangsta s--t y'all talk in y'all records... Boof!
"N---a done 6 months community service wit police and the DA racist ass crying to the judge that I didn't do it. F--k the SYSTEM! How about y'all take care of all the homeless kids and families on skid row. Promote helping people that are really f--ked up in your city!"
'N Sync To Reunite At MTV VMAs: The New York Post reports that Justin Timberlake, who is going to perform at the awards show, will be joined by his former boy bandmates. It's been 10 years since JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass have performed together with JT.
Verdict: Likely, but unconfirmed. It would be the right venue for a one-off reunion, but MTV is probably trying to keep it under wraps - just like they did with Daft Punk's surprise appearance, which was revealed by Stephen Colbert. Lance Bass talked about the rumors on his Sirius XM show, saying how nice it was that people were supporting the reunion - but would neither confirm nor deny the story.
Robert Pattinson Slams Twilight Fans: Did Pattinson bite the hand that feeds and bash the people who made him a superstar? It's reported that the actor had some harsh words for fans of the Twilight series.
Verdict: True. It was in a German newspaper, but surely Pattinson knows we do actually get information from the country. He is quoted as saying, “What’s really weird about Twilight fans is that they’re not really teenagers. Most of them are older. Sometimes I ask myself what these masses of people do the whole day. They sit in front of their computers and comment on anything having even remotely to do with Twilight.”
He then said of his nickname R-Patt, "[I want to] strangle the guy who came up with it," describing him as "some fat celebrity blogger."
