Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are not battling over her engagement ring, despite a made-up report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this new fabrication. We’re told it’s a “total lie.”

According to the repeatedly discredited HollywoodLife, Pitt and Jolie are fighting over “who will get the $250,000 diamond sparkler.” The untrustworthy site adds its “very difficult for Brangelina to decide” who will take possession of it. The outlet quotes one of its seemingly fictitious (or at least ill-informed) sources as saying, “Angelina wants all of the jewelry that she acquired during her marriage to Brad.” The same so-called “source” adds that there’s nothing she wants more “than her $250,000 engagement ring..”

The know-nothings at HollywoodLies further claim, “Brad wants to hold on to it for symbolic purposes,” before putting words into its fake “source,” who allegedly says, “It’s tough because Brad put his heart and soul into that ring… [having] worked with jeweler Robert Procop for over a year designing the most perfect ring imaginable.” The same almost assuredly manufactured “source” is quoted as stating, “Brad would give it up and anything else she wants if he could just keep the kids.”

Pitt is not even asking for the ring. Nor would he use it as a negotiation point for custody. For starters, the actor has zero legal basis for even wanting it or trying to get it back. An engagement ring is contractually the property of the person who receives it after both parties wed. Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with an actual insider, who exclusively assures us the webloid’s tall tale is a “total lie.”

HollywoodLies made up this story, much like it has fabricated (and been busted for) other stories. Among the doozies the disreputable site has concocted were that Pitt was going to rehab to win Jolie back, and that the couple was going to adopt a seventh kid from Africa to save their marriage. Gossip Cop was told by a rep for Pitt that he and Jolie were not adopting another child.

The outlet also published a bogus story that falsely alleged Pitt was “leaning on” Clooney when Jolie filed for divorce, but at the time the webloid posted its story Clooney was unaware the couple was even splitting. Additionally, HollywoodLife also manufactured a fake report about Jolie “hooking up” with Johnny Depp post-separation from Pitt. Like the current claim about the supposed battle for the engagement ring, all those previously mentioned articles were provably shown to be lies.
