Whether itâs about her family,Â weed habits, or dating life, Paris Jackson is constantly putting out media fires. When it comes to absurd stories about her personal life, the 20-year-old model is known to set the record straight on Twitter, and the recent rumor that she dating three (yes, three) women right now is no exception. (We can already see Jacksonâs eyes rolling.)
This week, the National Enquirer reported that Jackson was involved in a love triangleâer, rectangleâwith model Cara Delevingne, actress Ashley Benson, and DJ Caroline DâAmore. A source claimed that Jackson was âplaying the fieldâ and âdoesnât seem to care about the consequences.â Unsurprisingly, Gossip Cop, a celebrity gossip fact-checking site, debunked the rumor as zero-percent true.Â âNo idea how or why they come up with this stuff. Definitely not true,â a representative for Jackson told the site.
To make sure everyone knows the rumors are bullshit, Jackson took to Twitter. In a retweet of Gossip Copâs story, Jackson explained that sheâs never met Benson, that DâAmore (who is also the mother of Jacksonâs godchild) is straight and married, and that she and Delevingne were never in an official relationship.
Jackson also took the opportunity to clarify her relationship with Delevingne. Though the models have been photographed several times holding hands, Jackson explained that they were never exclusive.
Naturally, Jackson isnât surprised by the bogus rumors. As the daughter of Michael Jackson, sheâs seen (and battled) false reports about her father for her entire life. Now that heâs gone, she suspects that the tabloids have shifted their attention to her.
Of course, thereâs nothing wrong with transparently dating multiple peopleâin fact, weâve endorsed its benefits in the pastâbut fabricating stories about celebrities isnât cool, especially when delivered with a slut-shaming tone, like the Enquirerâs article. By her own admission, Jackson isnât a hard-partying, heartbreaking wild child. Sheâs a human with a reputation and feelings, and we can understand why false media depictions would get incredibly grating.
Luckily, Jackson has a direct line to her fans on Twitter, and can let us know when the rumors are straight-up lies. Keep the truth coming, Jacksonâthatâs what really matters.
