Angelina Jolie did not drunk dial Brad Pitt on her birthday because she was lonely, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the phony story. We're assured the actress never made a boozy phone call to her estranged husband.
According to NW, however, the actress decided to reach out to her ex on her 44th birthday last week "after a few wines." A supposed source tells the magazine, "It was the last thing he expected, especially as she was acting very friendly. He couldn't stop her from talking!"
The alleged insider goes on to say that the two spoke for "well over an hour," using the time to catch up on "how work was going for both of them and how their families were." The exes also spoke about their six kids, says the suspicious tipster, adding that the phone call was "therapeutic" for Jolie.
The so-called "source" further contends that Jolie got "emotional and lonely" after her children went to bed on her birthday, "which is when she decided to reach out to Brad." The seemingly phony insider adds, "As it turned out, she's thrilled that she did and loved every second of their phone chat. It was the best birthday present, in hindsight, that she could have possibly dreamed of!"
The tabloid's account of events simply never happened. Although Pitt and Jolie are on better terms these days, a source close to the actress tells us she didn't get drunk on her birthday and dial his number. Our trusted insider calls the story "nonsense" and notes that the actress spent her birthday shooting her upcoming movie, Those Who Wish Me Dead.
NW is the same outlet that Gossip Cop busted in February for falsely claiming Jolie was having a "breakdown" over Pitt dating Charlize Theron. In reality, Pitt was never in a relationship with the actress, and his estranged wife didn't suffer a "breakdown" over their imaginary romance.
Last year, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for making up a ridiculous story about Jolie warning Jennifer Aniston to stay away from Pitt and her kids. That story was predicated on the false notion that Pitt and Aniston were back together, which wasn't the case and still isn't.
Prior to that, Gossip Cop busted the publication for wrongly reporting that Jolie was pursuing a romance with Justin Theroux to "get even" with Pitt and Aniston. It's fairly clear that the unreliable outlet publishes fiction about the actress and her estranged husband. This latest article involving a drunken birthday phone call is another example.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
