Did you know there is a rumor around the web that Ashley Tisdale is HIV positive? Neither did we! That is, until her publicist issued a statement putting and end to speculation–and thus letting the entire world know about it. People reports:
Several Internet posts Thursday said the actress/singer may have contracted the disease from her rhinoplasty procedure last year. By Friday the rumor mill kicked into overdrive causing some panicked fans to post YouTube videos to “Pray for Ashley.”
Another Internet site posted what it claimed was a statement from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
But Cedars-Sinai spokesperson Simi Singer tells PEOPLE: “We absolutely did not issue a release.”
