Angelina Jolie is NOT “headed for a complete physical and emotional breakdown,” despite a report that wrongly claims her health is failing amid a divorce from Brad Pitt. It’s all untrue, and Gossip Cop can correct the story.

According to In Touch, Jolie’s “skeletal appearance” is “spark[ing] serious concerns.” The actress is described as “pale, gaunt, and exhausted,” with a so-called “insider” claiming, “She’s like a shell of her former self… She’s under 100 pounds — just skin and bones.”

The magazine puts the blame on both Jolie’s professional and personal lives, saying she’s “pushing herself to the absolute limit.” Despite wrapping her latest movie, the supposed source claims, “She has actually increased her workload.” It’s never said, however, what that work actually is. But the tabloid goes on to further allege her health “has only gotten worse as her relationship with [Pitt] deteriorates,” claiming the actor has “[given] up — on helping her and saving their marriage.”

The tipster adds, “The strain of fighting with him and their impending divorce have sapped her strength and caused her to lose even more weight. It’s going to be bad if she doesn’t put the brakes on soon. She’s overworked, overstressed, and emotionally overburdened. She’s headed for a complete physical and emotional breakdown.”

Using photos of Jolie recently meeting refugees in Greece, the outlet even points out supposedly problematic signs on her body, such as “loose skin.” Of course, if Jolie had “tight skin,” they’d accuse her of getting work done. The reality is, the Oscar winner looks the same as she has for years, and in the gossip world, she can’t win no matter what.

But there are no sudden “concerns” for her health. And there is no “impending divorce” from Pitt. In Touch has been claiming for months that he and Jolie are breaking up. Oh, did we say months? We meant YEARS.

Building a story around recent pictures of Jolie is just the tabloid’s latest angle, an excuse to tell more tall tales about her health and her marriage. The star and her fans deserve better.
