Mimi Faust isn’t the only one who has a confession to make. These celebrities finally told the truth about the scandals we all thought were real.

Nicki Minaj’s Engagement

Remember when DJ Khaled surprised us all with a public proposal to Nicki Minaj (and Nicki was spotted sporting an engagement ring a few days later)? Nicki admitted that the whole thing was fake. And after leading fans to believe that she is engaged to Meek Mill, her mother said that’s not true either…

Kim Kardashian’s Vogue Cover

Remember when Kanye demanded that Anna Wintour put Kim Kardashian on the cover, and Anna said “absolutely not,” but then there Kim was on it a month or so later? Recently, Wintour admitted that it was all made-up drama to sell magazines–and it worked!

Porsha’s Happy Marriage

Kordell Stewart’s sudden divorce papers forced Porsha Williams to admit that she was only playing the role of the perfect wife on Real Housewives of Atlanta because she didn’t want to feel judged by the other wives.

Kristen Stewart And Robert Pattinson’s Whole Relationship

We’ve seen a lot of celebrity relationships that make us want to scream “fake!” But this is one of the few PR-made relationships that both partners admitted wasn’t 100 percent real.

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s Wedding

Months after their lavish affair, an Internet sleuth discovered that these two never filed their marriage license. Now that several more months have gone by, Gabby and Dwyane’s fans are starting to wonder if these two ever intend to sign and file that license.

Beyoncé And Jay Z’s Divorce Rumors

According to Matthew Knowles, the rumors, along with the elevator fight, were a publicity stunt. He may not be Bey’s manager anymore, but he said the drama and rumors were just drumming up publicity for their On The Run tour. How does he know? He said that when he was Bey’s manager they did things like that all the time…

Kenya’s Relationship(s)

First Walter Jackson outed their made-for-RHOA relationship, then her African boyfriend never materialized, and finally, her Millionaire Matchmaker boo turned out to be married (just days after Kenya posted what looked like an engagement ring…)

Mimi Faust

In news that surprised very few people, Love and Hip Hop star Mimi Faust finally admitted that her shower rod romp with her co-star Nikko was 100 percent staged.

NeNe Leakes’ Divorce

We don’t have this one from the horse’s mouth, but one of NeNe’s sisters claimed that NeNe’s divorce was staged to drum up ratings. Do you believe it?

Porsha’s African Boyfriend

Not long after her divorce from Kordell Stewart, Porsha Williams was reportedly dating African billionaire Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue. Right around the time that those rumors started, she began posting expensive gifts on her Instagram page. That is until Tamala Jones jumped up and said that Mangue was her man, and Williams needed to “shame the devil & tell the truth.”

Things got even more confusing when Williams finally spoke up to say that TMZ made up the whole affair in the first place. So who were all of those gifts from? We may never know.

Lil Wayne’s Feud With Birdman

It’s reportedly a publicity stunt to promote Tha Carter V.

Peter Gunz’s Crazy Storyline

Apparently one of reality TV’s craziest love triangles is all made up. Why? Peter says it’s because he was broke and needed the money, so he had to do what he had to do to get on and stay on LHHNY.
