Angelina Jolie Does NOT Want Brad Pitt Back, Despite Report
Wednesday’s new issue of Star features a photo of Jolie looking sad with the cover line, “Angie’s Regret: ‘I Want Brad Back!'” It says inside the edition, “Be careful what you wish for! Lonely Angelina Jolie is seeing what life without Brad Pitt is like — and she’s having second thoughts.”
According to the article, Jolie started having a change of heart around Thanksgiving. “Brad’s absence was a painful reminder of just how much she has alienated him since she filed for divorce in September — and just how much she has lost,” writes the magazine. “Angie misses Brad so desperately that she’s now regretting her decision to leave him!”
A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Of course Angie and Brad had their problems — every couple does. But after 12 years together they had a very special bond, and Angie’s asking herself if she’s thrown away what could have been a lifetime of happiness with one rash move. It’s turned into a very low and very hurtful experience with her.”
Naturally, Star ties in last week’s debunked cover story, which falsely claimed Pitt is now hooking up with Kate Hudson. Alleges the outlet’s supposed source, “That’s been a very bitter pill for her to swallow. I heard she even slipped up in a moment of weakness and admitted, ‘I want Brad back!'”
And that’s where the cover line comes from, even though the tabloid has no actual proof Jolie said any such thing. Now Gossip Cop is told exclusively by a rep that she didn’t, and the claims are “entirely untrue.” More importantly, Jolie is not having “regrets,” and is still moving forward with the divorce. Nothing has changed, including, apparently, Star’s insistence on printing fiction over fact.
