Angelina Jolie NOT Cutting Brad Pitt Out Of Kids’ Lives “For Good,” Despite Claim
“Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt’s ‘Nasty’ Custody Battle — Wants To ‘Cut’ Him Out Of Kids’ Lives,” reads a headline from HollywoodLife. The serial fabricators write, “Our worst fears have just come true — Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s custody battle is getting ‘nastier’ by the second! Now, Angie wants to ‘cut’ him out of the kids’ lives for good.”
It’s specifically alleged that Jolie has been trying to eliminate Pitt’s role as a parent altogether, but has run into trouble. “Angelina is really upset, she didn’t think Brad would fight this hard for the kids — she thought he would roll over and she would get her way,” a so-called “source” claims to the webloid. The supposed snitch further says, “For some reason, Angelina thought she would be able to cut Brad out of their lives for good, and she’s learning she can’t.”
But HollywoodLies is seemingly lying, and not for the first time. Jolie was never seeking to completely erase Pitt from their kids’ lives. In fact, in her divorce petition filed back in September, she specifically requested that he get visitation. And since then, the estranged spouses have agreed to a temporary custody arrangement that does indeed allow him to have visits with the children.
Yes, negotiations between the former couple haven’t been all sunshine and rainbows. And Pitt is seeking joint custody, not just visitation. But the site’s “source” (if it even really exists) is 100 percent wrong in claiming Jolie didn’t and doesn’t want the actor to have any custody rights whatsoever.
This is just the latest in a long line of “exclusive,” inaccurate stories the outlet has been trying to peddle since the Brangelina breakup. Most recently, we busted HollywoodLies for falsely claiming Jolie and the kids were living at the Hotel Bel-Air, just because the actress was spotted there. If you want to read fiction and misinformation about Jolie and Pitt, the webloid is clearly the place to go. But if you want real news and factual information, stick with Gossip Cop.
