The Smear campaign is gossip on steroids. All narcissists who are rejected by others will target the rejecter through defaming that person's character. They have no remorse, spewing lies about the victim of their continued abuse, who finally cut them off.
Keep your mouth shut in other people's circumstances and don't accuse. Only an idiot gets themselves involved in other people's issues. Don't make accusations when you don't witness. Just because someone tells you something, doesn't make it true.....
