TMZ Denies Requesting Permit for Drone to Stalk Celebs
Celebrities already live in fear of roving TMZ reporters ambushing them at airports, sidewalks and movie premieres.
Imagine if the gossip site had access to a drone to follow them above and beyond their army of gossip-sniffing soldiers?
The San Francisco Chronicle reported on a number of new requests for drones, a story which said TMZ was one of several groups bidding for drone approval by the Federal Aviation Administration.
TMZ says the report is just gossip, not fact.
"TMZ is NOT getting in the DRONE business ... we don't have a drone ... we don't want a drone ... we never applied for a drone ... despite a bogus report to the contrary," the editors wrote. "Truth is ... while drones are, in fact, awesome ... it just ain't true. We could drone on and on ... but you get the point."
