      It was first reported by a National newspaper. PWMania.com does sincerely apologize to everyone for the incorrect information. It’s not like a nobody on a random site reported it and everyone ran with it. Mike Mooneyham & the Post & Courier are supposed to be trusted.

        Thats great except you broke the first rule in journalism, always have 3(!) credible sources before reporting something. Its not just this site however, “journalists” have been forgetting that rule more and more over the last few years thanks to garbage like Twitter Feed reporting.

          Looks like HollywoodGossip, TMZ along with everyone else also broke the first rule in journalism. Fair play PWMania!
