Rumors are stories and or statements that are generally circulated without confirmation or certainty as to facts. Sometimes it is hard to tell who started the rumor, who believes the rumor, or who heard the rumor but they are false 89% of the time. People often ruin reputations by these vicious rumors and the reason why they spread them is often unknown. You really shouldn't listen to rumors because you often look stupid if the information you received was false or wrong.
