Margot Robbie Did NOT Cause Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Divorce, Despite Report
Robbie had a small cameo role in Pitt’s 2015 film, The Big Short, and now according to HollywoodLife, Jolie was jealous and upset about him casting the young actress. A so-called “source” tells the site, “Brad has had his eye on Margot for years. He jumped at the chance to squeeze her into the role she has in The Big Short so that he could spend time with her.”
The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to claim Jolie had “tried her best” to prevent Robbie from making an appearance in the film, but she “couldn’t block Brad from working with Margot.” The site’s supposed source adds, “Brad went behind Angelina’s back and used his Hollywood connections to get Margot a short cameo on the film.” The repeatedly discredited webloid then theorizes, “Could this be one of the reasons that Angie filed for divorce?” and further suggests the actor may try to romantically pursue Robbie now that he’s single.
Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a reliable source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us the webloid’s entire report is simply “false.” Robbie played absolutely no part in Pitt and Jolie’s breakup, nor are any of the other allegations made in the outlet’s article remotely true. Unfortunately, Gossip Cop has spent an inordinate amount of time debunking HollywoodLife’s many false stories about the ex-couple.
We previously called out the site for alleging Jolie was buying her kids “lots of presents” in the wake of her and Pitt’s divorce. And shortly before that tall tale, Gossip Cop busted the webloid for falsely claiming Jolie was having second thoughts about her divorce from Pitt. There was no truth to either of those stories, and the same goes for this latest one involving Robbie.
