Is Project X based on a true story?

According to MTV, Project X is reported to have been based on the true story of Corey Delaney, a 16-year old teenager who held a party in his parents' house after announcing it on the social media website called MySpace. To his surprise, five hundred people turned up to the party and a fight between the police and the civilians broke out at the party. While most of the incidents are based on the true story but some incidents like stuffing a midget in an oven and setting the house on fire didn't actually happen with Corey Delaney.
