Rather, take a moment, go to Google and search for other sources to corroborate the story. If no one else is reporting a story such as Trey Songz coming out, then chances are it's not true. While this hoax is relatively harmless, some of these hoaxes become serious and can cause emotional distress to friends and family of the victims.
