Cher Threatens To Sue US Chat Show Host Wendy Williams Over Chaz Rumors
A couple of Cher-Chaz rumors have been floating around in the last couple of months: one that Cher and Chaz have not been talking to one another; and one that Cher has been paying Chaz $1,000-per-pound to lose weight. Of course, they're both utter lies - and seemingly started in trash tabloid rag 'The National Enquirer' (who prints these kind of rumors about Cher and/or Chaz on an almost-weekly basis).
It doesn't help matters for Cher and her son when other media personnel pick up such stories as truth - and in the case of Wendy Williams, broadcast them on their television shows.
As the host of 'The Wendy Williams Show', the 48-year-old seemingly used her television show as a platform to spread the weight-loss story. A 20 May post on the Facebook page of 'The Wendy Williams Show' reads: "Beyoncé fights back at pregnancy rumors and Miguel took a nasty fall at the Billboard Music Awards. Plus, did Cher pay Chaz Bono to lose weight? Find out Today in Hot Topics [a portion of her show]."
Other high-profile media spots such as PerezHilton.com, contactmusic.com and Express.co.uk have also picked up the weight-loss-payment story as truth.
