CLAIM: Angelina Jolie Seeing Billy Bob Thornton Behind Brad Pitt’s Back

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates


Angelina Jolie “can’t seem to tear herself away” from ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton, claims In Touch in one of the tabloid’s latest stories

“She was at his house a lot in March,” a source tells the tabloid. “They just hung out and talked for hours.” And the mag says Brad Pitt is “in the dark about how close they actually are these days.” The In Touch source explains, “He doesn’t know that they communicate nonstop or that Angelina visits him regularly. She knows Brad would never approve.”

Uh-huh. Almost exactly one year ago, In Touch ran a similar story, sensationalizing a supposed “love letter” Jolie had written to Thornton and pretending there was a major issue between her and Pitt. That story was false, as have so many In Touch accounts of Pitt and Jolie’s lives together, like their alleged “secret wedding” in France in 2011.

The mag’s insiders have struck out once again. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the latest In Touch report is wrong, saying of Jolie and Thornton, “They are friends. Nothing more.”

Jolie and Thornton have both moved on with their personal lives. It’s time In Touch did, too.
