1.He is now making up all these stories about our stuffs were telling him this and that; how can someone be so naive not to understand that he had lost his place when we didn't ask for his service for last few weeks.

Can you please tell me whether the use of about is ok or not? Do I really need to use that or it can be omitted? Are the uses of two for's ok or not?And finally,I also want you to ckeck the Italic sections whether they are grammatically correct or not.

2.He came before the media to deny all stories surrounding him claiming these are just media manipulation. OR He came out to the media to deny all stories surrounding him claiming these are just media manipulation.

Can you please tell me whether the uses of these two phrases came before and came out to are ok or not? And like the previous one I want you to check the Italic sections for any grammatical error. Can I say any grammatical errors instead of any grammatical error?

Thanks for your valuable time.

Hi,

1.He is now making up all these stories about our stuffs were telling him this and that; how can someone be so naive not to understand that he had lost his place when we didn't ask for his service for last few weeks.

In almost all contexts, 'stuff' is a non-count noun. In addition, 'stuff' cannot tell people anything, except in a very figurative sense. Do you perhaps mean' staff', ie a group of employees?
Your second part needs a question mark. What do you mean, 'he had lost his place'? Do you mean he lost his job?

Please answer the above queries. Then I can comment on other errors.

Came before is fine. A little formal.

Came out makes it sound like he was inside a building, and came out of it. Do you mean this?

Hi Clive,
Thank you very much for your kind help. Yes,by Stuff I actually meant a group of employees and by he had lost his place I meant he lost his job or he is no longer favored for the work he used to do for them. To make it more clear,lets consider he was working on a contract basis where he was the first choice before that "two weeks" period and for some reason he had lost it. During that time he was trying to contact with them through their employees but instead of giving him a direct answer that they no longer want him,they were playing with him saying they might need his service in future but the truth is they already have got themselves a better replacement.

Can you please suggest how can I replace these that's too.

And thank you again.

My bad,I have forgotten the came out segment. No its not like a situation where he came out of a building or something like that rather what I meant is, up until some time he was not available to clarify those rumors about him but then talked to the media and denied everything.
Hopefully,I am bit more clear now.
Hi,

Why do you want to replace them? 'That' is a very commonly used word.

Clive
Hi again,
Sorry,I heard the less you use the word that the better. But anyway, I would greatly appreciate if you please some time comment on the other errors that you have said in your first comment. Also can you please give me a few more suitable alternatives for come before.
Thank you once again.

Hi,

Just try to rewrite #1 based on my earlier comments. Then I'll be happy to look at it again.

He came before the media.
He talked to the media.
He held a press conference.

Thanks once again for your valuable time. I have corrected the #1 accordingly,please have a look now

He is now making up all these stories about our employees were telling him this and that; how can someone be so naive not to understand that he had lost his job when we didn't ask for his service for last few weeks?

I have corrected the sentence as you have wanted me to do so. Is it right to say? Can I use two Have+PP in a sentence?
