Rumor Patrol: Selena Gomez's Rehab, 'American Idol' Feuds, More
February 8th, 2014 2:03pm 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.
Selena Gomez Left Rehab Early: This past week we were shocked to learn Selena Gomez spent two weeks in rehab in January to deal with exhaustion. However, rumors are growing that Selena skipped out early to attend the Sundance Film Festival and promote her film Rudderless. So did Gomez leave without getting a clean bill of health?
Verdict: Leaning True. It's not the only rumor about her recent stay at Meadows recover center in Arizona; Star magazine claims she was using drugs. While that rumor goes unsolved, TMZ reports Gomez was placed in a 45-day program and left for Sundance after only two weeks. She allegedly said she'd return when she was done promoting her film, but has instead decided she was cured of what ailed her. While we can't confirm the story, a two-week stay seems a little short for rehab. We'll let you know as soon as we learn more.
American Idol Judges Feud: We can't go one season without the judges of American Idol finding something to fight about. Star magazine claims Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr. have been duking it out behind the scenes because Harry is getting too popular for J. Lo's ego.
Verdict: False. While we're sure American Idol producers love the free publicity, there is nothing to support this claim is true. A rep tells RumorFix, “This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Harry has said repeatedly in every interview he’s done how much he adores Jen and respects her. It’s also evident in what you see firsthand on the show. This is a silly, factually inaccurate, made up story.”
Farrah Abraham To Star In Second Adult Film: Word has it that the Teen Mom star is going to be in a second sex tape to cash in on her fame. After trying to deny the existence of her first one until it was released, is it true Farrah is trying to make a career in the adult industry?
Verdict: True. It's also much more official this time. The film, titled "Farrah 2: Backdoor and More," will have her partnered with James Deen yet again. An odd choice for someone who claimed on Couples Therapy that her sex tape ruined her life.
Sean Combs Stiffs Waitress: Did Diddy really leave a $0 tip on a $200 bill at a bar during the Super Bowl? That's what the bar claims. In a Facebook post on The Bar at The Dream Hotel's official page, they wrote, “Thanks Sean Combs aka P Diddy for leaving no tip on Superbowl Sunday. That’s right!!!! Sean Combs and some of his entourage were seen partying and watching Super Bowl XLVIII at The Bar @Dream Hotel. Insiders say his bill totaled more than $200 and he left $0 Tip. Not a dime. Although his Net worth is in the millions, he felt it necessary to stiff a hard working young girl for $40 bucks. What a gentleman….!!!” The post was then deleted.
Verdict: Leaning False. First of all, only a $200 tab for Diddy and his friends? Secondly, it sounds like something they would have proof of, like a photo of a receipt. After the post was deleted, perhaps a staffer angry they couldn't chat with Diddy at the club may have sounded off too soon.
