noise about

noise about

To spread gossip, secrets, or confidential information around to other people. A noun or pronoun can be used between "noise" and "about." I heard Tom and Eliza are getting a divorce! I wouldn't go noising that about to anyone else, though! Surely she isn't so foolish as to noise about confidential business details to her subordinates.
