Was the romance between Harry Styles and Taylor Swift fabricated for publicity? And is Swift furious with Styles because he was a "bad actor" in the relationship? And is Styles getting paid to go out on fake dates with women? Did Demi Lovato lie about not knowing that she had won a 2013 People's Choice Award for Favorite Celebrity Judge? Are Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian experiencing infidelity in their respective marriages?
There have been many blind items (which are gossip items that do not name names) that have appeared in media recently, and many people are guessing that these "X Factor" stars are the answers to the blind items.
Here are the blind items that people are guessing are about "X Factor" stars:
Morton Report (January 14, 2013)
Nice young man, good looking, loads of fans and making millions faster than he can get to the bank. What a busy boy! He has had so many dates and girlfriends it’s a wonder he has time for his art. He’s gone through a parade of lovelies who can’t resist his charm or maybe the chance for a bit of publicity. However popular he is with the girls, he’s far more so with their agents. Like a few other showbiz escorts, he’s on a secret list to be called upon for dates with wannabe models and actresses... not to mention female stars who might have something to keep hidden.

This couple’s apparent relationship woes are constant fodder for the tabloids. But while the drama may shift magazine sales, the public at large has never really bought the idea that the relationship is in trouble. But they should. How else can you explain a partner staying in a hotel for days on end when the couple own a home in L.A? And why would he be spending his time downing shots and wining and dining a blonde at the Ivy at The Shore in Santa Monica? The couple has barely spent any time together since Christmas and last time we checked, he was still at the said hotel over the weekend. This real-life drama has all the attributes of a great reality show.
Possible guess: Khloe Kardashian ("The X Factor" U.S. co-host) and Lamar Odom
Blind Gossip (January 15, 2013)
This Girl is furious about her most recent failed relationship! Her anger is directed at two parties in particular: the guy with whom she recently broke up; and her management team, for getting her into this relationship in the first place. While her jet was being readied to whisk her off to her next location, she ranted to a friend about the coupling.
She is mad at the guy because she feels that he didn’t hold up his end of the bargain. She called him a "F*cking idiot!" and "A bad actor" and complained that "He didn’t even f*cking try!" to make them look like a real couple. This is especially infuriating to her because his management team was the one that originally hatched the plan to set them up.
She is also mad at her management team because this is not the first time they have set her up in a relationship that went wrong. When her friend questioned her why she continued to allow herself to be set up, she went ballistic. "Why?! Why?! Because we need the f*cking publicity, that’s why! And instead of getting good publicity, now I look like a f*cking slut!"
She finished the conversation by declaring, "I’m done! I am never doing this again! I am ready to quit this whole f*cking thing!" The entire time she was saying this, Our Girl was pacing up and down near the runway, yelling and crying and gesturing to emphasize her fury. That’s a far cry from the sweet, together girl you see during performances and TV interviews. Oh, and given all this, we think it’s safe to say that this couple is never getting back together.
Possible guess: Harry Styles and Taylor Swift
Crazy Days and Nights/Entertainment Lawyer (January 15, 2013)
This B list celebrity who hosts a show or two and is recently married caused a big commotion yesterday. Reason? He never wears his wedding ring except when he is on the air because it interferes with his flirting vibe and yesterday when he went to put it on it came flying out of his pocket and rolled away causing a mad scramble to get it back and a laughing production crew who told him that is what he gets for not wearing it.
Possible guess: Mario Lopez ("The X Factor" U.S. co-host)
Blind Gossip (January 16, 2013)
One awards show is a little different from the others in that they make lots of calls before the show to ensure that the winning celebs will show up for the televised awards ceremony. They want them to walk the red carpet, make a nice speech on stage, and pose for the cameras with trophy in hand. This method works, because the winners usually all do show. Just about the only reasons for not showing up are severe illness, childbirth, or being halfway around the world for another scheduled commitment.
This year, as in previous years, lots of big celebrities – including Robert Downey Jr. and Taylor Swift – were there! They all found time in their busy work and travel schedules to attend. In fact, there were very, very few no-shows. One exception was Meryl Streep, who, presenters explained, was home with the flu. But there was another no-show who went completely unexplained.
This celebrity was actually in the Los Angeles area and certainly could have gone to the ceremony… but didn’t. The celebrity later said that they had absolutely no idea that they had even won an award. Wow. That’s really awful that the awards show would commit such a terrible oversight and neglect to call this one winner. And that must be what happened, right? After all, this celebrity never lies about anything.
Possible guess: Demi Lovato ("The X Factor" U.S. judge), winner of the 2013 People's Choice Award for Favorite Celebrity Judge.
