Brad Pitt Giving Angelina Jolie “Divorce Ultimatum”?
The new issue of Star hit newsstands on Wednesday with a cover alleging Jolie’s supposed “anorexia” is “tearing [the] family apart,” leading Pitt to make a “tough-love decision” and demand the actress “get help.” The accompanying story further claims Jolie and Pitt’s marriage is “on the brink” after a “year of fighting.” Mind you, this is what the magazine came up with after years of false reporting about the couple.
Star regurgitates its previous claims about a supposed argument between Pitt and Jolie from nearly a year ago, with a “source” calling it “perhaps the most bitter fight they’ve ever had.” The “source” goes on to allege, “They’ve continued to battle in some form or another over her health issues and weight loss ever since.” Now, Jolie is said to be “in the grips of a grave health crisis related to her long-standing food issues,” alleges the tabloid.
A so-called “insider” proclaims Jolie to be thinner than ever before and weighing an “all-time low of 83 lbs,” and the magazine says “the situation has gotten so out of control” that Pitt “has resorted to drastic measures to get her into treatment.” Its “insider” alleges, “He’s tried for months to help her, and Brad is at the end of his rope. He told her if she doesn’t check into rehab for her eating disorder, he’s leaving and taking the kids with him.”
The tabloid even goes as far as citing a “family and marriage therapist,” who has NEVER worked with Jolie and Pitt, as proof that she’s not “setting the best example for her children.” The doctor further talks about Jolie’s “anorexia” without ever having met her. The tabloid then dramatically ends it story with the supposed “insider” saying, “Brad told her he doesn’t want their kids exposed to this situation any longer, and he’s not going to stand by and watch while the mother of his children kills herself.”
This is all very dramatic and, more importantly, inaccurate. The magazine has a shameful history of making up claims about the couple, and using Jolie’s health and body to do so is the true “all-time low.” A source close to the stars exclusively tells Gossip Cop the report is “totally untrue,” not to mention despicable.
