I told a very gossipy type I worked with an absolute bare faced lie before I left. It wasn't about anyone more of something happening. She ended up having to backtrack and lost lots of friends. Those friends she gossiped and told others things about that was obviously told in confidence.

I’ve never done it but have been elusive about things or dropped hints (wrong) and wait for the gossip to draw their own wrong conclusions and spread the word
Good way to find out who is on your side or will keep your confidences
Years ago when exDH left me for OW - I said to a potential gossip - that there were 2 sides to every story and not to believe everything they were told
Within 24 hours there were all sorts of stories flying around and OW contacted me! To ask if I was still having sex with him - no thanks!
