    There's this girl who spread a very scandalous rumor about me and a professor, which isn't even true. The professor and I have a very positive professional relationship, which is why other people would believe the rumor to be true. I wouldn't want this stupid rumor to ruin everything, or get either of us into unnecessary trouble, as he has always been helpful towards me, and I don't want things to become awkward between us.

    What should I do?

    There's nothing you can do i think? Rumours die out after a while and everyone will find somehting else to target after.

    Hopefully it wont make anyting awkward- if you havent done anything then there's nothing to worry about

    Tell her, "Oh you're spreading rumours? Nice to know you're spreading something other than your legs for once."

    She won't bother you again

    I mean..just don't care?
    those that spread rumours love seeing the reactions, if you go about as if nothing happened, the person who spread the rumour will (most likely) get bored.

    I've got plenty of strange rumours about me circulating, ranging from me killing someone to me being a paedophile.
