Rumors of romantic triste surrounding my favorite celebrity surfaced a few days ago, I felt like I'd fallen out of love.
我好像看到了那则新闻,是真的吗?

I think I saw that on the news, did it really happen?
后来经纪公司出来澄清,是假的,真是吓死一票粉丝。

Later his agency clarified that it was false. It was a real scare for his fans.
是吗?说不定他们真的有一腿,只是经纪公司说谎,反正荧光幕前,真真假假谁知道。
