Hoax or Fact:
Starting since early 2016, we have been seeing many stories on social media sites claiming that a number of popular Hollywood celebrities are leaving their city lives and moving to small towns across America citing reasons like they are tired of their current lifestyles and have found a 'relaxed lifestyle' and 'genuine loving people' in those small towns. As we are going to explain below, the claims are nothing but hoaxes.
None of the aforementioned claims are reported in any credible news outlets. These false claims that many popular Hollywood celebrities are leaving their 'Hollywood lifestyles' and moving to small towns in America have in fact originated from fantasy news websites and/or satirical publications. The story saying 'Vin Diesel Explains Why He’s Moving to West Des Moines, Iowa' originated from an article on KM 8 News website km8news.com, which as mentioned in their about information, is a fantasy/satirical news website:
