CLAIM: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Kids Live In Secret “Bizarre World” Of No Spoken English and Underwater Screams

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s children live in a “bizarre world” filled with “shocking secrets,” claims a new Star cover story.

The tabloid starts by saying that Jolie “is not nearly as compassionate and caring as she would have the public believe.” “Angie can be a bitch; she’s super vindictive. She hates [Brad’s ex-wife] Jennifer Aniston still and is really competitive with her,” a so-called “source” tells Star.

Wait a minute. The tabloid is using a cover to trumpet “secrets” and new information about the Jolie-Pitt family — and it immediately goes into years-old, boring and bogus talk about a supposed war between Jolie and Aniston? This was tired and lame when Star blathered about it way back in 2011.

It’s a red flag that the rest of the story about the Jolie-Pitts is going to be speculative filler, and it is. There’s talk about “the free rein” the Hollywood stars allegedly give their young children. According to an “insider” for the tabloid, “The kids run the house. Those children are wild. There’s constant screaming at all times of the day and night.” This was fabricated when Star said it three years ago, and it still is.

A different “source” tells the magazine, “The children are so messy that they’ve been kicked out of 12 hotels in two years for completely trashing the rooms!” If this were the least bit true, if even one hotel had kicked out the Jolie-Pitts during the last two years, it would have been reported, but it’s not true. That’s why Star can’t name a single specific place or date.

Then the tabloid gets really absurd, falsely alleging that the children “are not allowed to speak English” in the home (instead using five different foreign languages), claiming that Jolie has daily “underwater screaming therapy,” and rehashing old rumors about Jolie and Pitt’s supposed insecurities about infidelity.

It’s all sensationalized claptrap, just like so many previous Star stories about the couple. The magazine has been publishing misleading covers about Jolie and Pitt forever. This is yet another example.

A source close to the situation laughed at Star’s latest, calling it “a joke.”
