This one’s a laugh.

In Touch magazine is wondering whether Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are getting the “7-year itch” and could be “the next couple to split.” Of course, the tabloid has spent what seems like 7 years writing story after story, week after week, about the allegedly imminent demise of Jolie and Pitt’s relationship.

In Touch claimed they were on the brink of separation back in 2009, and the mag has since repeated the same rumor dozens of times, regardless of the facts.

Here we are again.

A so-called “source” tells the tab that Pitt and Jolie have “fallen victim to the dreaded seven-year itch (which just killed Heidi Klum and Seal’s marriage and destroyed Brad’s relationship with Jen Aniston!).”

Wait a minute.

In Touch is now using the completely unrelated Klum-Seal split as an indicator that Jolie and Pitt are about to call it quits? “They’re tired and the passion has faded,” explains the mag’s source. Actually, it seems like In Touch is just too “tired” to bother coming up with new angles on celebrity news.

As Gossip Cop has reported throughout the tabloid’s endless campaign to break up Jolie and Pitt, and as a source close to the couple assures us once again, they are perfectly “happy” in their relationship. In Touch should pick another “itch” to scratch.
