Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have at least one thing in common with Kim Kardashian. They all inhabit In Touch‘s fantasy world, where repeating nonsense supposedly makes it magically true. The magazine has spent years telling everyone that Jolie and Pitt are in trouble. They’re always allegedly fighting and on the brink of splitting up. But In Touch‘s predictions never come true.

A couple of weeks ago, the tab ran a bogus cover story claiming Pitt had betrayed Jolie by having an “emotional reunion” with ex Jennifer Aniston. Instead of admitting the Pitt-Aniston connection wasn’t true, In Touch alleges a completely unrelated event – Pitt and Jolie’s recent trip to Missouri over her 36th birthday – was actually Pitt’s bid “to save the relationship.”

“They’ve been through a lot of difficulties in the past few months,” says a so-called “insider” for the mag. “Brad wanted to call a truce. He is willing to do whatever it takes to recapture what they once had.” More like: In Touch is “willing to do whatever it takes” to continue its endless campaign against Pitt and Jolie, like using the already-happy couple’s heartland visit as a way of covering its tracks for the last 500 wrong stories about them splitting.

“Brad hoped that this trip would fix what’s gone wrong for them over the past couple of months,” explains the tabloid’s source. As a source close to the couple again assures Gossip Cop, Pitt and Jolie are happy in L.A., Missouri, and everywhere else they find themselves.
