The National Enquirer should be embarrassed and ashamed for its horrendous “reporting” this week. The tabloid ran a story on page 15 of its paper dated May 25th, 2020 stating Roy Horn of the legendary Siegfried & Roy was miraculously recovering from Covid-19. The story is not only false, it’s reprehensible.

Horn tragically passed away last week after contracting Covid-19. The Las Vegas legend faced a lot of hardships late in life after his infamous on-stage incident when he was attacked by one of the duo’s famous white tigers during a show in 2003. The duo has been mostly retired ever since, with their tigers living in a sanctuary in Las Vegas, where the entertainers also live.

Horn Announced His Illness Late Last Month

By far the worst hardship came tragically this year. Horn announced via his publicist on April 28th that he had contracted Covid-19 and less than two weeks later, after a brief hospitalization, the magician succumbed to the illness and died on May 8th at age 75. Unfortunately for the National Enquirer, it’s reporting on Horn has been shameful.

The National Enquirer Must Have Missed The News

An article with the subheadline, “Miracle Recovery From Covid Deathbed!” appears in its latest issue. In the article, The often-discredited outlet quotes a so-called “source” as saying, “He’s been making improvements almost daily!” The disgraceful magazine claims that the magician’s health improved after being treated with the drug remdesivir, stating, that “insiders exclusively reported he has had an incredible bounce-back.”

Usually when we report on the poor reporting standards of the tabloids, it’s focused on silly things, like this particular publication’s phony story about . But the Enquirer also has a darker side Gossip Cop reports on, like its weird obsession with (wrongly) predicting . But we’ve never reported on the tabloid being this embarrassingly, outrageously, and insultingly false before.

The Tabloid Has No Excuse

This publication hit newsstands in New York and LA on Wednesday, May 13th, a full five days after the . We know that the National Enquirer often invents stories out of thin air, but why it didn’t make sure this fake story was pulled from the publication is a mystery even to us at Gossip Cop. While we often take glee at correcting the paper’s phony reporting, this sad story brings us none. It’s not just sloppy reporting, it is despicable.

The newspaper should be ashamed and embarrassed, yet as of this writing, the outlet hasn’t made a correction or apologized for its shoddy reporting. Not on its website, its Twitter feed, or anywhere else in the press. Frankly, we’re not holding our breath that it will either. When the tabloid predicts , as it often does at well, it’s always silent when the prediction is predictably wrong.

In need of a good laugh? Even celebrities are struggling to keep it together during quarantine and are turning to social media to share their meltdowns. Our friends at CinemaBlend compiled the best celeb posts into one hilarious video.

Is Katy Perry forcing fiancé Orlando Bloom to give up his partying lifestyle amid problems in in their relationship? One tabloid this week says so. Gossip Cop can address the claim.

According to Woman’s Day, Perry has issued Bloom an ultimatum to give up partying or she’ll leave him, the latest supposed “crack” in their allegedly crumbling relationship. “Things have been bad between Katy and Orlando since they linked back up in LA,” the tabloid’s shady “insider” says. “They’ve been kind of thrown together 24/7, which they’re certainly not used to.”

The tabloid then goes on to discuss how Orlando Bloom has been “struggling to contain his partying ways” since self-isolating with his pregnant fiancée, mentioning past rumors linking Bloom with pop star Selena Gomez back in 2016. The insider finishes by saying that despite loving Katy Perry, Bloom “likes the freedom to roam — whether it’s work-wise or in his social life” and that “he might find that freedom cut off when the baby arrives, and if he doesn’t like it, make no mistake, Katy will show him the door.” Next to this, the tabloid displays photos of Bloom with various female stars including Gomez, Liv Tyler, Cara Delevingne, and Charlize Theron with a caption about “flirting up a storm.”

Upon looking into this story, Gossip Cop finds it to be completely made up. For starters, what “partying” could Orlando Bloom possibly be getting up to right now in the midst of coronavirus lockdowns? And there’s no reason to think that Bloom isn’t ready to be a father to Katy Perry’s baby. First of all, he already has a son, and he also posted to Instagram on Sunday to wish Perry a happy Mother’s Day. He also gave her flowers, as she shared on her own Instagram story.

Then there’s this business about his supposed flirtations with other women. There’s no proof Orlando Bloom was hitting on any of them — he appears to be just being friendly. The picture of him with Theron was taken back in 2003, and the ones with Tyler and Delevigne are from events for the projects he’s starred in with them, Lord of the Rings and Carnival Row respectively. Is he not allowed to have female friends and co-stars?

As for Selena Gomez, Gossip Cop already debunked a tabloid story about her and Orlando Bloom last September that claimed that Katy Perry was leaving Bloom because of the former Disney star. Back in 2016, rumors that Bloom had cheated on Perry with Gomez flared up after the two were spotted chatting at a nightclub in Las Vegas, but Perry herself shut the rumors down. That supposed drama was four years ago at this point — the tabloid clearly has nothing new to add to its made-up narrative about Bloom’s cheating and partying and has to resort to dredging up equally fake theories from the past.

Woman’s Day is evidently as uninterested in telling the truth about Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry now as it has been in the past. In May 2018, Gossip Cop debunked a story from the tabloid claiming that the couple had set a wedding date for September of that year, which quite plainly did not turn out to be true. They weren’t even engaged at the time. In August of last year, we busted the magazine again for a story alleging that Perry was jealous of Bloom’s “attractive” personal assistant. Perry’s spokesperson called that story “ridiculous.”
