Has Angelina Jolie really hired private investigators to spy on Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron? That's the ridiculous claim in one of this week's tabloids. Gossip Cop can debunk the bogus story.
As we've made clear many times, Pitt and Theron aren't dating, despite several unreliable outlets claiming the two stars have been secretly hooking since last year. This premise came from an unidentified "source," but the actor's rep has told us on the record that he never had a romance with Theron and hasn't seen her since they shot an ad for Breitling watches last year.
Unfortunately, Star is keeping the phony soap opera going. The magazine claims Jolie is furious about her estranged husband's supposed new romance, and has set out to "destroy" both him and Theron. "As soon as Angie got wind of the relationship, let's just say a few glasses flew across the kitchen," an alleged insider tells the tabloid. "She was really angry."
From there, the questionable tipster says Jolie has enlisted a team of former Israeli state investigators to trail Pitt and Theron. "She has the detectives following Charlize's every move," adds the so-called "source," who goes on to say that Jolie is hoping the investigators will dig up dirt on both Pitt and Theron so she can use it against him in their custody battle.
If Jolie had really hired private eyes to spy on Pitt and Theron, which she hasn't, the detectives wouldn't find anything. The two stars simply aren't a couple. The magazine's take on the subject is a complete work of fiction. It's worth noting, this isn't the first time the actor's estranged wife has been dragged into the bogus narrative.
Last week, Gossip Cop busted Star's sister outlet, RadarOnline, for falsely claiming Pitt was hiding his romance with Theron from Jolie. Shortly after that, the tabloid's other sister publication, OK!, made up a story about Pitt spending time with Jolie while dating Theron. And earlier this week, Gossip Cop debunked a report claiming Jolie warned Theron to stay away from Pitt and their kids.
Here's what's really happening. After the false rumors about Pitt and Theron started circulating, the tabloids decided to capitalize on the situation by coming up with new angles and throwing other names into the mix. Jennifer Aniston, for example, has also been arbitrarily included in this ongoing narrative. Despite the fact that Pitt and Theron aren't a couple, Gossip Cop still reached out to a source in Jolie's camp, who confirms the actress didn't hire private investigators to spy on two people who aren't together. The tabloid's story is flat-out absurd.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
