Angelina Jolie is not keeping Brad Pitt away from their six kids to hurt her estranged husband’s reputation and make him look like an absentee dad, despite a false tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively clear up the situation. We’re told it’s completely wrong.

Jolie frequently brings her children to red carpet events, but according to the Australian magazine NW, these public appearances are part of a “PR scheme” to repair her image. “Ange is more than happy to use her kids to get kudos,” a so-called “source” tells the outlet. “That it’s hurting Brad’s reputation at the same time is an added bonus.”

The unreliable outlet contends that the actor hasn’t seemed like a loving father as of late because he hasn’t been spotted out with his kids, and that’s because “the last thing [Jolie] wants is for him to be seen as a doting single dad-of-six. She reckons it’ll only give him even more sympathy.” And while it’s true that Pitt doesn’t currently have custody of the children, his estranged wife isn’t preventing him from being with them so he falls out of grace with the public.

Pitt and Jolie’s custody situation is complicated, but there’s no hidden agendas or sinister motives happening behind closed doors. Jolie even said last year in her Vanity Fair cover story, “We care for each other and care about our family, and we are both working towards the same goal.” That goal is to do what’s best for the kids, and using them as props to hurt their father certainly isn’t what the actress is setting out to accomplish. Nor is he going to parade them around to appear as a loving father, which he is away from the glare of the public, we’re told.

In fact, this isn’t the first time that Gossip Cop has had to debunk this absurd narrative. Earlier this month, the New Zealand edition of New Idea similarly alleged that Jolie was “flaunting” her kids at public events to get under Pitt’s skin amid their custody negotiations. In reality, it’s untrustworthy tabloids that have been “flaunting” the exes’ children to concoct phony stories.
