CLAIM: Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt Had “Awkward Encounter” at Airport

Truth rating: 0

“There is nothing worse than running into an ex – and that’s just what happened with Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt Feb. 23 at LAX!” exclaims HollywoodLife.


They really ran into each other?!

Uh… NO.

Though the site first reports “that’s just what happened,” the bad blog then contradicts itself in the next line by saying, “The formerly betrothed pair almost bumped into one another when Brad was getting off and Jen was getting on – to planes that is.”

Actually, that sentence is also incorrect. Pitt was getting on a flight, and 30 minutes later Aniston was getting off a plane from France.

Regardless, did or didn’t they have an “awkward encounter,” as claimed in the story’s headline?

Gossip Cop can confirm that while they were both at the airport on the same day, they did NOT run into each other.

The only thing that’s “awkward” here is HollywoodLife’s reporting.
