Unconfirmed reports indicate that renowned singer Tom Close is weighing up the option of dragging a local celebrity website to court for supposedly spreading a rumor that he had cancelled his wedding with his long time fiancée Tricia.
Rumalex.net which ran the story on November 11, 2013 said that Tricia had apparently pulled out following a misunderstanding with Tom after the latter was busted chatting with his ex-girlfriend via short text messages.
Following the reports rwandashow.com tried on several occasions to contact Tom Close, but the star only woofed angrily that he had no comment regarding the issue. But now sources close to him have revealed that a plan to seek judicial intervention is in the pipeline.
The source was quoted as saying, “He (Tom) has tried on several occasions to talk to the website’s Chief Executive Officer to remove the story but he has refused completely, so he’s considering to drag the website and its CEO to courts for character assassination.”
Asked what he had to say about the latest developments, Rugambage Zikkilla, rumalex.net CEO, stressed that he had indicated the story was a rumor and thus it should be treated as such. It is not clear whether Tom will file a criminal suit or whether he will seek compensation in damages caused.
