CLAIM: Angelina Jolie Becoming “Unhinged” and “Paranoid”

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates


“Stressed, depressed and insecure, Angelina Jolie is losing her temper… and maybe her mind!” declares – you guessed it! – In Touch magazine. The tabloid, which has seemingly leveled entire forests and spilled oceans of ink trying to bring down Jolie and Brad Pitt, is at it once again, claiming that a “paranoid” Jolie is on the verge of a breakdown.

As always, the happier Jolie seems on the outside, the more “unhinged” In Touch alleges she is behind closed doors. That way, silly trifles like “observable reality” never interfere with the magazine’s claims. This week, it’s Jolie’s alleged “anxiety” over the upcoming release of her directorial debut, In The Land of Blood and Honey, that’s leading her to supposedly unravel. According to an In Touch source, “She’s been so jumpy. Edgy, nervous, quiet.”

The so-called “associate” describes Jolie as “totally dependent on Brad’s love and attention… when he’s away, her tense moods escalate.” Oh, and she’s also allegedly “suspicious” of Pitt, but the magazine doesn’t even try to back up that claim. In Touch shrieks that Jolie has “turned into a basket case” and frets, “Let’s hope for everyone’s sake her movie’s a hit!”

Of course, however In The Land of Blood and Honey performs, the tabloid will find excuses, week after week, month after month, to portray Jolie as a tortured, fragile mess on the brink of melting down. And the mag will hope its readers forget that its past few dozen predictions were totally wrong. Sources close to Jolie tell Gossip Cop this latest In Touch assault on the actress and her family is as bogus as all those other baseless articles.
