Gossip Cop Patrols Breaking Dawn Beat

It’s been a busy couple of Twilight-tracking days for Michael Lewittes, the former Access Hollywood and Us Weekly veteran who now runs GossipCop.com, a website determined to “Bust Bad Dish.”

First up was the Us Weekly-HollywoodLife.com report that an LA bar fight had almost broken out between Robert Pattinson and actor Jason Statham over the former’s onscreen and off screen love interest, Kristen Stewart. Not so, explained Gossip Cop over the weekend, pointing out that neither actor has been in L.A. for some time now.

Then came another R-Patz item to be debunked yesterday: a report by British tabloid The Daily Star that Pattinson and Stewart had gotten a little too romantic on a beach in Brazil, forcing authorities to intervene.

Responded Gossip Cop:

We checked not only with our Pattinson and Stewart sources, but we also made a few very expensive calls to the Policia Civil do Estado do Rio de Janeiro – and they didn’t know about this alleged incident either. This story is, as they say in Brazil, “nao verdadeiro” (not true).

Oh, and if you’re hoping to catch Stewart naked in next fall’s Breaking Dawn – Part 1, forget about that, too, says Gossip Cop.
