This article has been updated with new information.

Remember this rumor? The extremely weird one that emerged right after Tesla's eccentric CEO Elon Musk and singer Grimes reportedly split in 2021? And how the internet thought that, somehow, Noah Centineo had something to do with it? We sure do.

In case you need a brief refresher, the source of this bizarre piece of gossip seemingly came from the website crazydaysandnights.net, where a "blind" submitted item revealed that a "celebrity CEO" apparently found out that his partner was "hooking up" with "an A-list actor who has a history of not being kind to women."

Within 24 hours of the post, the split was supposedly announced.

Centineo doesn't have a publicly documented history of being mean to women, so how his name got dragged into this is anyone's guess. But what appeared to strengthen this potential love triangle is podcaster Michaela Okland, who initially tweeted about a sighting of Grimes and Centineo together "kissing at Olive Garden."

However, Okland later redacted her claim, implying that her tweet was just a joke. So in actuality, there's no evidence at all that supports this claim to be true.

...But that still didn't stop social media from running wild with the story.

Grimes still hasn't confirmed if the fan fiction is true or not, but the singer did announce that she wants to colonize one of Jupiter's moons, Europa, to create a "lesbian space commune." Most likely without the father of her two children, ex-girlfriend Chelsea Manning and, obviously, Centineo.
