Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s alleged balcony fight is being exaggerated again in a new tabloid report claiming Pitt is “fed up with his wife’s tense attitude and controlling ways.” Gossip Cop can bust the Star story, which alleges the couple had a “knock-down, drag out fight” while at their hotel in Sydney, Australia.

According to the outlet’s insider, Pitt “exploded” at Jolie. The Star source explains, “Brad knows she’s stressed out, but he’s sick of bearing the brunt of it. He wants her to figure out her priorities and get healthy — mentally and physically.” Of course, Star has spread false rumors for years alleging that Jolie is in poor health or on the brink of a meltdown. None of those dire predictions turned out to be true.

This time around, Star says Jolie is “wasting away in front of her loved ones’ very eyes,” under great professional pressure connected to her directorial projects. The tab’s “insider” claims her habits are “insanely unhealthy, and it sets a bad example for the kids.”

Moreover, Star thinks there’s trouble brewing with Melanie Laurent, Jolie and Pitt’s co-star in By the Sea, which Jolie is directing. “While Angelina did cast her in the movie, sources say she’s been regretting her decision,” reports the magazine, which alleges Jolie is “increasingly jealous of Brad’s friendship with the pretty blonde.”

Oh, please. Jolie HIRED Laurent. Laurent was pretty when Jolie HIRED her. Every time Pitt has a female co-star, tabloids go into overdrive trying to link them romantically, and to make it seem as though Jolie is fuming with jealousy. This is more of the same, from an outlet that’s proven itself to be among the very worst in sensationalizing supposed Pitt-Jolie relationship problems. A source close to Jolie and Pitt tells Gossip Cop, “This is absurd. They’re thrilled to be working together. There have been no issues.”
