A new report claiming Robert Pattinson is dating Sienna Miller is both late and wrong. Gossip Cop can once again correct this false allegation about the two friends âsneakingâ around, which was published by yet another site that didnât bother to fact-check. As we noted earlier in the month, we were assured itâs all untrue.
In a new article from Canoe, the outlet asks whether Pattinson and Miller are âjust friends or something more?â The site then regurgitates an inaccurate story that falsely maintains the two pals are âtaking their flirty friendship to the next level.â It simply quotes an unnamed RadarOnline âinsider,â who alleges Miller and Pattinsonâs relationship was always âplatonicâ because âone of them was always with someone else,â but now that neither of them is attached, âthe door is open for them to give this a real shot.â The purported source further contends the two stars âhave always had a great connection.â
Much like the original story that it took its misinformation from, this latest article acknowledges Pattinson is close friends with Tom Sturridge, Millerâs ex-fiance and the father of their 6-year-old daughter Marlowe. However, it has its untraceable and seemingly nonexistent âinsiderâ add, âAll of their mutual friends think Rob and Sienna would be a good match.â Naturally, none of the outlets that repurposed this falsehood mention who the supposed âinsiderâ is or the names of any of Miller and Pattinsonâs âmutual friendsâ who think they would make a âgood match.â
Of course, itâs very simple for websites and tabloids to hide behind unidentifiable sources and have anonymous and unaccountable individuals quoted as saying whatever they need for their narratives. Since reworking our site over the past few months, Gossip Cop never predicates a story just on one unnamed source. We use additional, publicly available information to back up our conclusions. And we provide as much transparency in other ways as well.
In this instance, a rep for Miller told us on the record unequivocally that talk of the former The Lost City Of Z co-stars dating is completely untrue. The âsneakingâ around claim is wrong now, and it was false when the Pattinson-Miller dating rumor was first begun last month. Nothing has changed, except a new crop of outlets appear to be more interested in spreading baseless gossip than in actually fact-checking.
None of the sites that have published this falsehood mention anything about reaching out to Millerâs rep. And the reason is simple. They would have been told the claim was a lie and either wouldâve had to ignore the spokespersonâs comment or try to find a way to include the on-the-record remark, but then insinuate the rep was lying while their unidentifiable âinsiderâ knew with supposed truth.
Maybe Canoe should stop looking to RadarOnline as a source of information about the former Twilight star or Miller. Last summer, the latter website falsely maintained Pattinson had an âintimate dinnerâ with Katy Perry. And shortly before that misfire, the uncreative outlet inaccurately also asserted Brad Pitt had an âintimate dinnerâ with Miller.
As Gossip Cop exclusively reported, Pitt and Miller never dated. And close buddies Pattinson and Perry have never dated either. Much like those past claims, the current one linking Pattinson romantically to Miller will still be wrong no matter how often or how late itâs repeated.
