Some people are fond to talk about other people's life as if they know the stories better. They will do anything to defame the person involved so please be extra careful people as we never realize that there are eyes watching our each and every move. They don't just stare but pathetically spread rumors too, mind you.
As one of the new media user, I would assure all of the fellow bloggers to clearly check the facts and the validity of a story before posting anything on your site. This is to ensure that nobody is being emotionally disturbed by the unconfirmed news i.e gossips and rumors etc. Remember that words can hurt and I believe that all those bloody apologies can never cure the emotion of the affected person.
We share this internet world together so why should we humiliate other users right? Millions of people around the world have the access to the net so please be mindful with what you are writing. If anybody is caught to do so, the authorities concerned should punish the do-er for that malicious statement. As for my advice, please repent when you still have the chance to do so and never repeat the same mistake ever again okay?
P/S: Some people spread rumors because they are jealous; they wish that they can just be popular and successful like you.
