Angelina Jolie's 13-year-old daughter Shiloh is not "ditching" her to live with dad Brad Pitt, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. It's complete fiction.
"Shiloh Finally Breaks Free!" reads a headline in the latest issue of NW. The accompanying article says the teenager has been unhappy living under her mom's roof during her parents' custody battle, and has finally decided she's leaving for good. "She didn't ask her mom if she could move in with Brad - she told her it was happening," a supposed source tells the outlet. "And from the second the words were out of her mouth, she could breathe again."
The alleged insider further maintains Jolie is "in denial" over the situation and believes "it's just teen drama, but for Shiloh, this is real." As for the reason why the teen supposedly wants to live with her dad, the tipster says Jolie's house is a "dysfunctional disaster zone" and she "can't take it anymore." The questionable source adds, "She's done with begging Angie to eat and she's over her denials that she's not sick."
From there, the purported source says Pitt was elated when his daughter told him she wanted to live with him. "This will devastate Angie when she wakes up to the fact that Shiloh's move is for good, but for him it's a piece of his family back," contends the suspicious insider. The so-called "source" goes on to assert Shiloh's five siblings may soon follow suit, adding, "No one would be surprised if, by the time the summer ends, Brad is single-parenting a house of six kids permanently."
Nothing about the tabloid's article is remotely factual. On Monday, Jolie was spotted visiting an art exhibit in Los Angeles with Shiloh and other daughter Zahara. Both kids looked very happy during the outing with their mom. Still, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who tells us the magazine's report is totally fabricated. Jolie's 13-year-old daughter isn't unhappy living with her, nor does she have any plans to run away from home.
It's worth noting, Gossip Cop debunked a similar narrative earlier this year. We called out Star for wrongly reporting Shiloh was demanding to live in Missouri with her grandparents, William and Jane Pitt, because she was sick of her parents' divorce battle. That premise was equally bogus.
Last year, Gossip Cop busted a magazine for falsely claiming Shiloh was planning a "tell-all" about her parents' divorce. Prior to that, we corrected a phony article about Pitt and Jolie's daughter bonding with Jennifer Aniston. The tabloids enjoy dragging Shiloh into her parents' divorce drama, but these various storylines involving the teen are baseless.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
