Even my own Mother that has never met the guy before and knows little about him of course wants to start her own rumors. Which until recently I've become aware that my own Mother has become a "Et tu, Brute?" in my life. So I no longer want my Mother involved in my relations with anyone I know personally as she has posed a problem with not only my dates but my friends.
Most people may think my Mom is just being a protective Mother but that is not her human nature at all("I wouldn't take a bullet for my daughter", her words to my Uncle). Plus when I look back at my past relations and how they started, my Mother had an impact on how my feelings changed rapidly for a person. So this is now a battle she will not win regardless if I do end up hurt in the end or not.
