    Re: Hello,

    "as rumour has it" >> it is rumoured; there is a rumour.

    As rumour has it, David has walked out on Jenny = people are saying that David has done this - it is rumoured that David has done this. Whether it is true is not certain.

    Re: Hello,

    What if I say "it is gossipped that David has done this."?

    Would it have the same meaning?

    Thanks and regards from Bogota,

    No.

    You could say "The gossip is that ...."
