Explanation

The clue is rumor mongers and the correct pair both mean “false, doubtful, or unsubstantiated.”

You have no way to know if the reports were sentimental, saccharine, or scandalous. Trap answer apocalyptic ignores the clues in the sentence, and is inappropriate for an event involving only one person, even if the outcome were tragic.

Hence options Apocryphal, spurious are best fit!
