You’s a Lie! Celebrities Who Have Been Caught Tellin’ Major Stories

January 3, 2013  |

It’s officially the internet age and everything celebrities Tweet, speak or claim is recorded. But that fact escapes a few of the rich and famous from time to time. Here are a few big celebrity lies your favorite stars have been caught in.

This all started when TMZ posted a clip of Tyga from an unaired MTV show called “Bustas.” In it, an 18-year-old Tyga bragged that he was named after Tiger Woods by wealthy parents who drove Range Rovers and brought him up in The Valley.

And that was news to Tyga fans who thought that the rapper was from Compton. Since the video’s release, Tyga says his parents were only wealthy during the time they were taping the show and that he’s really from Compton. OK Tyga.

Joseline Hernandez

Joseline know she wrong for telling the whole world that she’s engaged to Stevie J and sporting a “ring” on her ring finger that she says she just wears for fun. Even if Stevie told her they were tying the knot, she should have known better than to believe it.

Sean Kingston

I laughed out loud at this one. Sean Kingston was spotted outside of a club with a chromed-out Fisker Karma whip. When the paparazzi asked him where he got it, he said Justin Bieber gave it to him:

“When you best friends with one of the biggest artists in the world you get all different type of gifts.”

But when Bieber’s camp heard the news, they said that Kingston was lying and Bieber had just loaned the car to Sean while he was out of town. Ouch. That’s embarrassing.

This came from Tamar Braxton’s mouth so I can’t help but take it with a grain of salt, but Tamar says that Akon is “a liar and the truth ain’t in him”. Akon says that he discovered Lady GaGa but Tamar says she knows that’s not true because she was there when her husband Vince discovered Lady GaGa on MySpace.

Kenya Moore

Girl, girl, girl. What I don’t understand is why Kenya would make up a boyfriend and then beg him to marry her. Maybe she thought she could lure him to the yard with her milkshake but it appears he’s lactose intolerant.

When Ne-Yo signed a legal document saying that he would never shout out his ex jumpoff for pretending that her baby was his, he lied. In September, Ne-Yo spilled the beans on VH1’s Behind the Music and let the whole world know that his ex was a bold face liar who tried to trick Ne-Yo into raising some other man’s baby. Oh well, he still had to break her off even after he found out the baby wasn’t his so she should let that go.

Rick Ross

Rick Ross must’ve forgot he took those photos when he told the lie that he had never been a corrections officer. He kept it up for a long time until pictures of him in uniform came out and he finally admitted to being an officer of the law in Rolling Stone magazine — but only because his friend’s father asked him too or some such nonsense.

Havoc showed out on his Twitter account and said that while Prodigy was in jail he dropped the soap for other inmates. But when MTV’s Sway reached out to find out if Havoc meant what he said, he claimed that his account was hacked via a phone he lost while he was out of town.

When folks pointed out that the posts originated from a computer and not from a “lost phone.” Then Mobb Deep rapper tried to say they sent them out to “test loyalty” — whatever that means. Finally, Havoc admitted he lied about writing the Tweets on All Hip Hop and kind of cancelled Mobb Deep because of the drama. Someone should tell Havoc to stop writing checks he can’t cash.

Lil’ Wayne

Wayne lied to the po about following the restrictions of his probation. He got caught in those lies when Quincy Jones III’s documentary came out. Wayne’s trying to sue over his exposure but he should probably just take his lumps for being dumb enough to act a fool on camera while on probation.

Tiger Woods

Tiger isn’t the first man in the world to lie to his wife about the women he’s sleeping with but he’s probably suffered the biggest consequences. His wife tore up his car and left, he lost his endorsement deals and his game has never been the same.

Lauryn Hill

Bet you didn’t expect to see your girl on here, but Wyclef says that he and Lauryn had an affair while he was married and she got pregnant and told him that the baby was his. As it turns out, Lauryn was lying about the paternity of the baby and her lie almost broke up Wyclef’s marriage and ended the Fugees (supposedly).

Dwyane Wade

You should probably take anything said by someone’s ex-mother-in-law with a grain of salt. But Dwyane Wade’s ex-mom-in-law said that he lied to Oprah’s face when he depicted his ex Siovaughn Funches as a monster and a bad mother. She says she helped raise him and she’s tired of him spreading lies about her daughter.

Lindsay Lohan

Man, white people get away with anything. Back in June, Lindsay lied to the police and told them that she wasn’t driving her Porsche when she smashed it into an 18 wheeler. When they finally proved that she was driving, she told the police that she was confused when she said that someone else was driving the Porsche. She’s confused alright, but not confused enough to not know when to lie.

Kim Kardashian

Nick Cannon recently put Kim Kardashian on blast for lying to him about the existence of her now-infamous sex tape. But that’s probably just one of many lies she told — like her marriage to Kris Humphries not being a publicity stunt.

Tami Roman

On Basketball Wives, Tami got caught in a lie when she tried to pit Jennifer Williams against Evelyn Lozada. Tami said Jennifer Williams did an interview with Sister2Sister magazine where she threw shade on Evelyn and Chad, but she must have forgot she was on camera when she started spinning that lie. Sister2Sister caught it and put her on blast saying there was no such transcript, and they cut her column deal.

    Utter sub-humans called celebs! ugly tattoed scum mongrels and degenerates all infest the Great Satan USA

  • Nunya

    This article may need an update, considering that Stevie J DID marry Joseline Hernandez.

  • Nate

    When folks pointed out that the posts originated from a computer and not
    from a “lost phone,” there should have been a comma like the one I just put there, followed by a sentence like this one. If that was to be the only sentence, then the word “When” should not have started the sentence; the word “Folks” with a capital “F” should have. People who write these articles really should learn proper grammar.

    Is it just me or like most of these liars are black?!

    It’s kind of a funny thing when you go to prettiest celebrities or prettiest teen stars, how you never ever see a black face. But as soon as it comes to underhanded dealings they are the most celebrated while the world knows white people are the more devious members of society. Just remember slavery.

    I can just imagine the comments later:
    You still talking bout slavery.
    Please. If we didn’t there would be no INDEPENDENCE!!!

  • Alias

    that Tami Roman lady has a horrible body. she looks like a dude with a dress on.

  • ReallyChild?

    “White people get away with anything”? Wow . . .

  • Scarlette Brownne

    Damn. I thought the lie that Tami Roman told was that he was a female.

  • Sorry but if Wyclef was sleeping around on his wife then THAT is what ended his marriage, not just the other woman. They are both to blame.

  • “Man, white people get away with anything.”

    Wow, racist much? Watch an episode of Cops and say that again. Cops proves that white people sure as hell don’t get away with everything. RICH people can get away with anything.

  • ElvisWasAHero2Most

    UHHH! Is anyone else as upset as I am over the popularity of Rick Ross despite the fact he’s the antithesis of a rapper, a corrections officer?! That;s like David Duke having a black wife. My goodness, no wonder hip hop is in the toilet now.

  • IdealLaw

    “bald faced liar” not “bold faced liar”

  • Tangereina

    Nothing about Brandy faking her marriage for a reality show??

  • Suchalady

    We all knew Dwayne Wade was a liar and Ne-Yo didn’t do anything wrong or actually lie…smh

    • Anonymous

      Dwayne’s ex-wife is a hot a$$ mess. It’s hard for me to believe anything she says. Sitting on a damn street corner talking about she’s homeless and she’s getting more per month from him than some people make in a year.

  • Chevonne22

    Shoot, Tammi has been lying since her days on The Real World.

    This was actually an entertaining article, light and humorous…and almost worth the zillion pages.

    But I will complain until the cows come home on these aggressive ads!! Now, the first click on one of the pages automatically leads to another page OFF of MN onto the Moms Work From Home site?! Really?? How treacherous!

  • Zettai

    No collapsing stomach?

  • Izzysez

    Really? That’s the lie ya’ll have on Akon? Smoking Gun has a three page article about how his WHOLE past “locked up won’t let me out” is a DAHMB lie.

  • What?

    Ok, If I’m not mistaken, Rohan Marley has said “Wyclef is a liar”. That story was on MN months ago. Did you even bother to research before writing this? Looks like you’re a liar too!

    • Maldrie

      Child boo. If you didn’t want to read the article then you shouldn’t have clicked on it. Get real.

  • JN31

    A few of these “lies” have disclaimers that they are “supposed” or “alleged” lies; so why include them if hey could not be verified in the post? I understand it isn’t real journalism but this is just borderline lazy.

  • olivia

    No Halle Berry???…this list is incomplete

    • hollyw

      …wait, what’d I miss?? What she say lol?

  • Lorajei

    These were not major lies… Its really all irrelevant especially on Joseline and Kenya. Joseline isnt as dumb as people make it seem she probably knew it was a way to get attention hell her and Stevie J probably joked about her wearing the ring, I wouldnt be surprised. Same as for Kenya, her and Walter made the agreement to be a couple for the show but she probably wanted to come into RHOA being the Topic Of Discussion… And she got it
