When you're a celebrity, dealing with rumors about yourself comes with the territory. Most of the time, they ignore the gossip, but sometimes, a rumor becomes too annoying or too hurtful to ignore.
Harry Styles Is Secretly Experiencing Hair Loss And Wears A Wig
WHAT HARRY SAID: He told Rolling Stone that his friend Tom Hull is "completely obsessed" with the conspiracy theory. He said, "He won’t stop sending me messages about people trying to work out if I’m bald. What is it with baldness? Does it skip a generation or something, right.?
He continued, "If your grandad’s bald then you’ll be bald? Well, my granddad wasn’t bald, so fingers crossed."
VERDICT said Not true, but he should share the funny messages Tom's been sending him about it!

WHAT AVRIL SAID: On Australia's KIIS 1065, she told The Kyle and Jackie O Show, "Yeah, some people think that I’m not the real me, which is so weird! Like, why would they even think that?"
Mindy Kaling's Close Friend And Ex-Boyfriend
Mindy Kaling's close friend and ex-boyfriend, B.J. Novak, is the father of her two children. WHAT MINDY SAID: She told Marie Claire that the speculation "doesn't bother" her. She said, "He’s the godparent to both my kids — and they have such a great relationship — and so far [the speculation hasn’t affected my happiness at all, it hasn’t affected my kids or B.J."
She added, "If that’s what is going to be titillating to people, I’ll take it."
Previously, she told the New York Times that she's "not going to talk to anyone else about" her children's paternity until she's had that conversation with her children.
Elisabeth Moss Was Secretly Engaged
Elisabeth Moss was secretly engaged to fellow scientologist, Tom Cruise. What she said: On Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen, she said, "I actually was confused [by the reports. I mainly got texts from people being like, 'I didn’t know. Why didn’t you tell me?' And just confusion from my friends, but mainly poking fun at it 'cause obviously they knew it wasn’t true."
She also said that, at the time the rumor surfaced, one tabloid edited her face onto someone else's body to fake a picture of her with Tom.
Jada Pinkett Smith Cheated
Jada Pinkett Smith cheated on her husband Will Smith with August Alsina. WHAT JADA SAID: On Red Table Talk, she confirmed August Alsina's claims that they had a romantic relationship when she and Will "were going through a very difficult time."
Speaking to her husband, she said, "We decided that we were going to separate for a period of time, and you go figure out how to make yourself happy, and I'll figure out how to make myself happy."
Addressing August's claim that he had Will's "blessing," she said, "You know, the only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself...But what August was probably trying to communicate — because I could actually see how he would perceive it as permission — because we were separated amicably. And I think he also wanted to make it clear that he's not a home-wrecker. Which he's not."
Jada also explained that her relationship with August ended when she reconciled her marriage with Will.
WHAT WILL SAID: A year later, he told GQ that he and Jada have a mutual and consensual open marriage. He said, "We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can’t be a prison. And I don’t suggest our road for anybody."
Matthew Mcconaughey Got A Hair Transplant
After his hair started thinning in the '90s, Matthew McConaughey got a hair transplant. WHAT MATTHEW SAID: He told LADbible that he grew his hair back by shaving it all off and then using a topical ointment, which he still uses. However, he also said that the hair transplant rumors were started by a "very renowned hair transplant guy from, like, Denmark or something" who took credit for his hair regrowth at the international hair transplant convention.
He said he ran into a "really renowned" Beverly Hills hair transplant specialist who told him about the man claiming to have given him a hair transplant. To set the rumors to rest, Matthew let the specialist feel his hair. The specialist said, "I can't wait to bust this guy next year when he raises his hand."
