The world’s leading provider of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie fan fiction is at it again! When we last left In Touch, the magazine was wrongly alleging that the couple’s son Pax was “out of control and a “wild child.”

Now, says In Touch, it’s Jolie supposedly having the tantrums! According to the tabloid, things got ugly earlier this month on the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s red carpet, when an “animated and friendly” Jolie suddenly “went cold” when reporters asked about the condition of Pitt’s injured knee.

“Everybody’s been making too big a deal about a cane,” said Jolie, adding, “Seriously, there are so many other things you should be focusing on in the world.” Later, Pitt had to pull Jolie inside for the ceremony because she was still signing autographs for fans. Somehow, In Touch uses these two details as evidence of Jolie “act[ing] out” as part of a “jealous meltdown.”

Confused? That’s because it makes zero sense!

The magazine insists Jolie’s “odd behavior” concerning Pitt is because she’s “deeply jealous” of his success with Moneyball and The Tree of Life. Supposedly frustrated about a lack of attention for her directorial debut, In The Land of Blood and Honey, Jolie isn’t supporting Pitt and instead has started “acting more like a bitter rival,” says In Touch.

One “friend” tells the tabloid, “She’s been acting resentful and impatient. It’s a shame.” The “shame” here is that In Touch thinks it can get away with labeling Jolie a “jealous” monster based on the facts that she signed autographs and downplayed Pitt’s injury. There’s been no actual evidence on the red carpet or elsewhere that Jolie is anything but thrilled for the positive attention Pitt’s been getting so far during awards season. A source close to the couple laughed off the In Touch fabrication, telling Gossip Cop, “as usual, it’s totally untrue.”
