Eyewitness testimony is notoriously tricky.
It's a massive cause of wrongful criminal convictions in these United States of America. And it's also the usual source for sloppy gossip reports about celebs sucking face in the VIP of South Beach's glossiest megaclub.
Like, say, this morning's juicy New York Daily News tidbit about Sean "Diddy" Combs and Kate "Booberstar" Upton swapping spit, a charge to which Mr. Combs is pleading not guilty.
Attention all Media. I don't even know Kate Upton personally! I'm not dating her ! What's being reported is not true. END of story!

For real ...
Despite the Daily News anonymous source's insistence that "they were kissing, they weren't hiding it," Diddy is
hiding denying it.
And so is Ms. Upton.
