Selena Gomez was not “the reason” Angelina Jolie filed from Brad Pitt, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this nonsense. We’re told it’s “absurd.”

According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Gomez’s supposed “cheating” with Pitt is the reason “behind Brangelina’s split,” and “why she’s been in hiding these last several weeks.” The webloid further alleges with no proof that Gomez had “known about Brad Pitt and Angelina’s divorce announcement before it was made.” All the site then does is regurgitate previously debunked stories that falsely claimed “Angelina was absolutely livid” after Gomez shared on Instagram a photo of her with Pitt at the Golden Globes with the caption, “Just discussing #TheBigShort.”

CDL asserts with no evidence that “Angelina thought it was more that just that” and allegedly “went ballistic after discovering photos of Selena” on Pitt’s phone. Gomez, contends the outlet, is “the reason why Angelina Jolie filed for the divorce.” The website ends its wholly fictitious story by stating, “Selena won’t be ready to make a public appearance again until Brad and Angelina’s divorce papers have been finalized.”

There’s so much that’s factually inaccurate it’s difficult to decide where to begin. In no particular order, Gomez was actually out in public on Saturday and posed for photos with fans while enjoying a meal with her family in Alcoa, Tennessee. Whoops. More importantly, Gomez had zero to do with Pitt and Jolie’s split. There was no “cheating” on the part of Pitt with Gomez. And as for the picture she posted of herself at the Golden Globe Awards with Pitt, it literally was as she noted, “just discussing” The Big Short, which the actor starred in and produced and in which Gomez had a cameo.

Additionally, despite made-up tabloid tales, Jolie never found photos of women on Pitt’s phone (including Gomez), nor did she ever go “ballistic” or was “livid” about the young star, who didn’t play any role in her breakup with her husband. It’s all one lie piled on top of another lie. Still, a Jolie insider assures Gossip Cop none of the site’s claims are true. Our impeccable source tells us the webloid’s entire story is “absurd.”

Of Gossip Cop is not remotely surprised by the falsity of CDL’s report. We recently busted the outlet when it wrongly alleged Pitt was reuniting with his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. Much like that article, the current contention that Gomez is “the reason” behind Jolie and Pitt’s divorce is 100 percent untrue.
