CLAIM: Angelina Jolie “Parties with Hunks” Behind Brad Pitt’s Back
A new National Enquirer headline shrieks: “Flirty Angie Parties With Hunks.” “Angelina Jolie is tired of being left behind with six kids while Brad Pitt travels the world — so she kicked up her heels in Los Angeles during his recent trip to France!” declares the tabloid, apparently unaware that Jolie and the children also do a fair amount of traveling.
The magazine’s source says, “Angie decided she needed a break — and cut loose.” How so? By allegedly enjoying some “steamy L.A. nights” behind Pitt’s back. The Enquirer goes on to sensationalize Jolie’s appearance at a Malibu fundraiser earlier this month, during which the tab’s source claims she “flirted up a storm with lots of handsome men,” including Ben Affleck and Peter Gabriel.
“Angie was lapping up the attention,” says the tabloid’s insider. “She didn’t appear to be missing Brad one bit and kept the party going past midnight.” A few days later, the actress attended a “political soiree” at a Hollywood hotel. That’s it. Translation: Angelina Jolie went to a couple of parties while Brad Pitt happened to be out of town. Period.
The flirtatious partying with “hunks” boils down to Jolie making very public fundraising appearances on nights when her longtime partner was away, and chatting with people like Affleck and Gabriel. The Enquirer tries to stoke controversy at every opportunity with Jolie and Pitt, often in ridiculous fashion, and this is the latest example of the tab’s sensationalism run amok.
