Angelina Jolie is NOT demanding that Brad Pitt take a paternity test to prove he’s not the biological father of Melissa Etheridge’s children, despite a ridiculous tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

Etheridge recently revealed on an Australian talk show that back in the ’90s, she considered asking her friend Pitt to donate his sperm to her and then-partner Julie Cypher. Etheridge instead used singer David Crosby as a donor to conceive her now-teenage children, Bailey and Beckett, but according to the National Enquirer, Jolie is suspicious Pitt could be the real dad.

A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Angie wants closure on the issue, so she’s demanding Brad undergo a paternity test. But Brad says Angie is being paranoid.” Etheridge also admitted that she hasn’t been in touch with Pitt for some time, and the magazine’s dubious insider claims Jolie believes it’s because “Brad wanted to be part of the kids’ lives,” but Etheridge refused. The tabloid’s “source” further alleges that Jolie warned her husband that if he doesn’t take a DNA test, she’ll supposedly “go straight to Melissa and demand answers.”

Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us the tabloid’s claim is simply “not true.” Unfortunately, we’re not the least bit surprised by the magazine’s phony story. Gossip Cop has repeatedly busted the Enquirer for its many false claims about Pitt and Jolie, including a recent made-up tale that the actor was threatening to divorce his wife because she’s allegedly “dying.” The publication’s latest claim involving Etheridge and a paternity test is equally wrong.
