Remember Greg of the popular late '90s TV show Dharma & Greg? Well, turns out that the actor, Thomas Gibson, isn't only married on television but he's also married in real life, which is why what could've been just embarrassing is now a bigger deal.
TMZ is reporting that Gibson allegedly spent the last two years in an online relationship with a fan who snatched photos from porn sites to convince the TV star to send her “explicit photos and video” of himself. It turns out Gibson’s new internet girlfriend was fake and lifting replies from sites like LoveGisele.com
In the end, Gibson and his lawyers put an end to the catfishing, once they figured out the woman's photos were not her own. That didn’t stop his digital lover from sharing some of his hot tub videos.
Gibson says it’s all lies.
What can you do to avoid a similar catfish? Try running photos you receive in Google image search… and while you’re at it, dump a portion of the text into a search engine to see if the sweet nothings have already been murmured elsewhere online.
