Good god, we've just seen the worst blind item the New York Post has ever run:

Which hunk in a summer movie is a violent, closeted homosexual? The heartthrob snuck into his ex's apartment a few months ago and raped him so violently, the ex ended up in the hospital - and the actor paid him $500,000 to keep his mouth shut.

Now, if the Post is printing this, isn't it saying that it has good information about a brutal rape that's gone unpunished—information it's keeping secret in order to drive up Web traffic and sell papers? And if it's not saying that, isn't it instead saying it will print unfounded bullshit just as long as it's alarming and salacious? New lows every day, people!

Oh, it's rumored that the violent sexual predator the Post is protecting is Will Smith.

If you are going to tag Will Smith as the rumored rapist from another post then shouldn't you also go on to provide the further explanation that it was rough play that got out of hand and not rape - sounds like someone needed a safe word.

There is no excuse for this level of violence. Even if Tom Cruise stopped putting out.

Except…it WAS funny Sarah. And it makes sense, since there's no doubt Tom Cruise is a bottom

So bizarre. This is the most interesting thing I've ever read about Will Smith and it's so disturbing that I don't really want to know more.

Never thought the Enquirer (sp?) would be a more credible news source than the New York Post. At least when they brok the Edwards scandal they had proof.

No. 11 Sarah says:

I actually love Will Smith. I only admit that under anonymity of the interweb. He reminds me of my husband - who really hates him and can't understand why he's gotten so far. Now I need to go make sure my husband isn't on the DL. DAMN YOU, NEW YORK POST.

I don't like Blind Items - you never figure out what the real answer is and all sorts of people write in the comments section about how they know who it is because they're the one with the tore up butt hole. Please.

I checked my man's internet history once and that was enough emotional trauma for me. We have a deal that I don't ever snoop on him - for my own sanity - and he clears his brower's history to help me out.

Thanks, Tang. You know what? Reading this makes me feel better, because now I don't believe it at all. And thanks, Sar, good point. I'll restrain myself from snooping.

No. 21 Leslie B says:


If you have evidence that Will Smith did such a horrible act, call the authorities immediately. He deserves to be punished.

If all you have is some random comment on some random blog, it's another type of horrible act to attach his name to it.

I doubt if it is Will Smith. I agree with everyone about blind items. Lots of names are thrown around. I still have images of certain "poo eating" celebs after reading that one.

Jesus. I forgot about that one. *shiver* That kept me awake at night for days - it's why I have an Ambien scrip. Thanks, Bloopie.
