The first thing is to *not* spread rumors. Respect the confidentiality of information you think you might have. It always helps to check information and ask if it is confidential.

However, once you have started a rumor, the most you can do is apologize and repudiate the rumor. I realize it is hard to admit you are wrong, but this would earn you more respect from your friends.

When you spread the rumor, you *did* mean it. It is relatively useless to deny this.

The apology and refraining from further rumor spreading seems to be the optimal choice.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
