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.
