Casey Anthony Adopts Baby-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

Casey Anthony, the Florida mother who was acquitted of her daughter’s murder in 2011, has adopted a baby from Romania.

The Truth:

This eRumor is a hoax.

World Weekly News, a website that warns its readers to not believe everything they read, first published the false report in January 2013.

The report claimed that Casey Anthony planned to pay up to $75,000 to adopt a 2-year-old girl from Romania. The report also claimed Anthony would pay for the adoption using money from an $8 million book deal.

Although reports of a possible book deal for Anthony went viral after she was acquitted, a deal was never announced. She filed for bankruptcy in 2013 and claimed $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities, the Associated Press reports.
