Circulating report claims that rap star Eminem has announced that he is moving to Eagan, Minnesota because he is tired of the L.A. lifestyle and is looking for a change.
The claims in the report are untrue. Eminem has not announced any plans to move to Eagan. The story is just one among an ongoing series of false ‘celebrity moving’ reports generated by a network of clickbait fake-news websites.
EAGAN, Minnesota – In a big surprise to everyone in Los Angeles, rap superstar Eminem has announced today in an interview that he is moving to the Eagan, Minnesota area. He told the magazine that he was “tired of the L.A. lifestyle” and was looking for a change in life.
According to a ‘news’ report that is making its way around the interwebs via social media, rap icon Eminem has surprised everyone by announcing during an interview that he is moving to the small city of Eagan, Minnesota. The report claims that the star is tired of the L.A. lifestyle and is ‘looking for a change in life’.
However, the claims in the report are false. Eminem has made no such announcement. There are no credible news or entertainment reports that support the claim that he is moving to Eagan. In fact, the report is just one in an ongoing series of almost identical reports that falsely claim that various celebrities are relocating to quieter climes because they want a change in lifestyle. The reports are published on an expanding network of clickbait fake-news websites designed to entice fans of the targeted celebrities into visiting and sharing.
The site that published the fake Eminem article includes the following disclaimer on its About Page:
O’Reilly Post is a fantasy news site. All news articles on oreillypost.com are satire or pure fantasy.
Alternative versions that use the same base story template have named Clint Eastwood, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and a host of other high profile actors and entertainers as the ones supposedly moving to new locations.
If a post featuring one of these bogus stories comes your way, don’t help the devious people who create these fake-news sites by clicking and visiting.
