Star magazine seems to be getting a jump on its April Fool’s Day stories. The tabloid claims Brad Pitt’s “growing infatuation” with Jennifer Lawrence led Angelina Jolie to storm out on him. “Brad hasn’t stopped talking about how gorgeous, poised and talented Jennifer is,” explains a so-called “insider” for Star, adding that he’d already been a fan but “just flipped” over an advance screening of The Hunger Games.

Pitt’s alleged obsession supposedly drove Jolie crazy. “She warned him to act his age and stop drooling over a girl young enough to be his daughter,” the “insider” is quoted as saying. The mag claims “things came to a head” when Jolie “recently discovered Brad texting Jennifer at their L.A. home.” The Star source reveals, “Angie absolutely freaked out! Even though it was totally innocent on Brad’s part, she demanded that he cut off all contact with Jennifer, and then she jetted off in a huff to Amsterdam on a humanitarian mission, dumping Brad for three days.”

“She even forbade him from attending the March 12 L.A. premiere of The Hunger Games,” adds the tab’s insider. Uh-huh. Here’s what really happened: Angelina Jolie went to Amsterdam (as expected) for a pre-planned trip, Brad Pitt did not go to the premiere of a movie he’s not in (as expected), and after these two completely predictable things happened, Star somehow tied them together for a bogus story about Pitt crushing on Jennifer Lawrence. The magazine constantly alleges that Jolie and Pitt are fighting and otherwise publishes baseless rumors about the couple as though they’re factual. A source close to Pitt and Jolie tells Gossip Cop the Lawrence angle is particularly “laughable” and “not true.”
