Brad Pitt’s mom, Jane, did NOT give him and Angelina Jolie marriage counseling, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this rumor. We’re told by a source close to the actor it’s not true.

According to Life & Style, Pitt and Jolie have supposedly been having marriage problems ever since they wed last year, and Jane stepped in to help the couple work through their issues. The tabloid alleges that during a recent trip to visit with Jane in Missouri, she decided to give her son and his wife some “intense marriage counseling.” A so-called “family insider” is quoted in the tabloid as saying, “She came down really hard on both of them for not trying hard enough.”

The supposed “source” also tells the magazine Jane believes Jolie and Pitt’s marriage issues are “rich Hollywood problems” and are “fixable.” During the supposed marriage counseling session, says Life & Style, Jane read them verses from the Bible about love, and told Jolie she needs to “submit” to Pitt.

The magazine further notes Jolie and Pitt were initially “mortified and offended” by Jane’s marriage advice, but have now “softened after realizing she genuinely had good intentions.”

This tabloid’s claim is all very dramatic and untrue. A source close to the actor tells Gossip Cop the report is “not true,” and that no marriage counseling from Pitt’s mom ever happened. Of course, we’re not surprised the story is bogus. Gossip Cop has busted the tabloid several times for fabricating reports about Pitt and Jolie, including a story earlier this month that falsely alleged she was worried about his supposed drinking problem.
