I wish we would know whether he speculates, or he really has reliable inside source. Trouble with this is, if Mercedes would really care, they can hire quietly inestigatiors, and it dosen't take too much to find who has leaked the info. (It's important for other matters in the future as well to plug the hole). Now think about it; you are probably well paid, sitting in a nice room, leading comfortable life, and you would risk it all that you will destroy your career just because some blogger wanted to be first with the news?
It doesn't make any sense (at least not to me).
Conclusion - there is no leak, but a lot of guessing, which at the end when suits come out, may or may not be proven as correct one.
In any case this is not some random blogger with a lot of imagination... But you should know that members of specialized press often, if not always, share their infos between them , their best way to ensure that the info is solid, before publishing and then decide which one of them will be the first to publish it (getting credit for a scoop).
