If you are the chewing gum in the teeth of people, does it necesarily mean you are a ViP? Not neccesarily! I was caught in such a rumor among my classmates, not once but many a times. Always I feel that it was done to cause harm to someone else and I get harmed in the process. And in the end I become notorious(famous?) too.
Its like if Sachin is rumored to have nexus with a bookie/bar dancer/..., I have been in that book makers role too often. But when will the day come for me to be the maestro myself?
