“Pregnant Snooki’s Fiancé Is Cheating On Her, With Ex-Girlfriend!” screams the headline of a RadarOnline post.
The webloid, basing its story on an article in the equally unreliable National Enquirer, reports that “the pregnant reality star’s fiancé, Jionni LaValle is cheating on her… with his ex-girlfriend, Erica Wecksler, a 22-year-old brunette fashion merchandiser from New Jersey.”
The outlets then quote a so-called “source” as saying, “Poor little Snooki is caught up in a love triangle that she knows nothing about!”
“He’s engaged to Snooki but going behind her back to contact Erica, calling and texting her. He’s cheating on Snooki,” adds the alleged “source.”
RadarOnline then editorializes, “The news is sure to come as a massive blow to the pint-sized star, who regularly posts gushing missives about Jionni on her Twitter account,” and even offers such as examples of tweets as “I have the hottest fiancé ever. YUM,” and “I love waking up to you.”
Well, the only ones cheated are the readers of RadarOnline and the National Enquirer.
Snooki’s spokeswoman tells Gossip Cop exclusively, “The story is 100% false, ridiculous and deserves no other comment,” sniping that the Enquirer “should stick to reporting on alien sightings.”
