Brad Pitt did not confess to Angelina Jolie that he’s still in love with Jill Schoelen, an actress he dated more than 25 years ago, despite a ridiculous new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this bogus story. We’re told it simply isn’t true.

According to the National Enquirer, Pitt “devastated” Jolie after recently revealing that he wanted to reconnect with Schoelen, whom he met on the set of one of his first movies back in 1988. “The truth is Brad’s never gotten over Jill,” an alleged “friend of the family” tells the magazine, adding, “She’s always going to be the one that got away… Jill was kind of the original Angie of the 80’s.” The tabloid goes on to allege that Jolie is threatened by Schoelen, and not only has she forbid Pitt from having any kind of reunion with her, but she has also “declared that he’s not to mention Jill’s name again.”

Not surprisingly, none of this is remotely accurate. Gossip Cop has repeatedly busted the tabloid for manufacturing story after story about alleged problems in Pitt and Jolie’s relationship, which a decade and six kids later is as strong as ever. Among the tall tales from the Enquirer that Gossip Cop has corrected in the past were that the couple was headed for divorce and that each, at different times, wanted the other to go to rehab.

Of course, Gossip Cop reported those stories were false, and we were 100 percent right, while the tabloid has remained consistently wrong. In any event, we investigated this latest story from the tabloid, and an insider tells us there was no such confession by Pitt about still loving Schoelen. Our rock-solid source tells us the magazine’s report is “all bullsh*t.”
