Brad Pitt is NOT in the midst of a major midlife crisis that’s taking a toll on his mental health, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “completely fabricated.”

According to the National Enquirer, the movie star “drinks alone,” “shuns old pals,” and his supposed moody temperament is putting his marriage to Angelina Jolie at risk. A so-called “insider” tells the tabloid, “He’s dumped his friends, rarely communicates with his family, and it’s hard to remember the last time he took Ang out on a date.”

The tabloid’s “source” goes on to allege that Pitt has been acting “extremely grumpy and withdrawn,” and all he wants to do these days is “drink alone or work himself into the ground.” The questionable “source” adds that he’s on “the verge of a crack-up.”

Gossip Cop has repeatedly corrected the Enquirer for making up stories about supposed marital problems between Pitt and Jolie. The reports are usually accompanied by wholly unsubstantiated claims that one or both have issues with drugs and alcohol. This latest tale is similarly untrue.

A source close to Pitt exclusively assures Gossip Cop that the actor is in a great place, both personally and professionally, and the tabloid’s latest report claiming otherwise is simply nonsense. We’re told the story is “completely fabricated.”
