Circulating report claims that actor Vin Diesel has announced that he is moving to West Des Moines, Iowa because he is tired of the L.A. lifestyle and looking for a big change in life.
Vin Diesel has made no such announcement. The false report comes via a network of clickbait fake-news websites that have published an ongoing series of bogus stories that falsely claim that various celebrities are unexpectedly moving to out-of-the-way locations to escape the celebrity lifestyle.

Vin Diesel Explains Why He’s Moving to West Des Moines, Iowa
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – In a huge surprise to everyone in Los Angeles, Hollywood actor Vin Diesel reveals in a new interview that he is moving to the West Des Moines, Iowa area. He tells the magazine that he is “tired of the L.A. lifestyle” and is looking for a big change in life.
According to a supposed ‘celebrity news’ report that is currently being shared via social media, popular US actor Vin Diesel has revealed during a recent interview that he is moving to the small city of West Des Moines, in Iowa. The message claims that the actor is moving because he is seeking a big change in life and is tired of the L.A. lifestyle. The report features a photograph of Vin Diesel and claims that the star’s unexpected announcement was a ‘huge surprise to everyone in Los Angeles’.
However, the claims in the report are untrue. Vin Diesel has made no such announcement and there are no credible news or celebrity sources that support the moving claims in any way.
In fact, the story is just the latest version of an ongoing series of equally false ‘celebrity moving’ reports that are designed to trick people into visiting suspect websites. This version is published on a website that calls itself ‘KM8 News’ The site has the following disclaimer on its About Page:
KM8 News is a fantasy news website. Most articles on km8news.com are satire or pure fantasy.
However, there are dozens of almost identical websites with different names that, between them, churn out a seemingly endless stream of celebrity flavoured clickbait drivel. All of the sites have the same disclaimer. Alternative versions have falsely claimed that Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, Justin Bieber, and a host of other famous people have announced unexpected moves to out-of-the-way locations.
