She fell for these lies about my boyfriend

DEAR MISS MANNERS: About three years ago, I started a relationship with a man I’m in love with, and we’ve been living together for two years.

Early in our relationship, my “best friend” (we have been as a family for half of our lives) heard some gossip about my husband, believed it completely for the truth, and completely changed her attitude toward him. She refused to tell me what was said about him or whoever said it, only that when the relationship failed, she would be there for me.

Shortly after, I learned from someone else what was being said and who was saying it: a known liar and gossip who had taken treats of the truth and added a lot of untruths and speculations.
