Angelina Jolie is not trying to end Brad Pitt’s friendship with Kanye West, despite an untrue report. One of the blogs has come up with that bogus rumor. Gossip Cop looked into the claim we’ve learned it’s false.

A new RadarOnline article says Jolie is unhappy about Pitt attending West’s Sunday Services earlier this month, to the point where she’s forcing her ex to choose between the rapper and his own children. According to the website’s alleged source, Jolie “can’t stand the Kardashians” and doesn’t want her kids anywhere near anyone in that family.

The alleged insider further contends that Jolie has issued her ex an “ultimatum” of either continuing his friendship with the rapper or risk seeing his kids. The suspicious tipster goes on to say that Pitt doesn’t appreciate Jolie dictating who he’s allowed to be friends with, but he also knows the actress has the power to make his life difficult if he continues hanging out with West.

The bogus article seems to have been written simply because Pitt was recently spotted at one of West’s church services, which was attended by other members of the Kardashian clan. The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star spoke glowingly of the service, which has become a popular event for celebrities to attend. Gossip Cop can confirm that Jolie isn’t preparing to use it against him in their ongoing custody negotiations. A source close to the situation assures us the site’s narrative is completely fabricated.

Gossip Cop busted RadarOnline in July for coming up with the crazy idea that Pitt was quitting acting to become a beekeeper. The site ran the ridiculous story after Pitt mentioned in an article that he planned to focus less on acting and more on producing, but he never said he was quitting acting altogether. Somehow, the outlet took that quote as an opportunity to make up a story about the star becoming a full-time beekeeper. We ran the story by Pitt’s rep, who assured us it was absurd.

The website’s track record is also poor when it comes to stories about the former couple. In June 2018, the site wrongly alleged Jolie was melting down over her custody battle with Pitt. The outlet quoted a suspicious source as saying, “The stress is all consuming and she’s been skipping meals and losing a lot of sleep.” Gossip Cop, however, pointed to several examples of the actress managing both her professional and private life successfully, including tireless charity work as well. This latest article involving West is more fiction.
