A new story claiming Angelina Jolie “regrets” splitting from Brad Pitt is fake news. Not only are the article’s quotations seemingly made up, but its premise is also clearly fabricated. What’s more, the report comes from a blog that earlier this month contradictorily maintained Jolie “regrets” ever starting a relationship with Pitt in the first place.

There’s a reason HollywoodLife is nicknamed HollywoodLies, and it’s because of stories like its latest tall tale that asserts Jolie has supposedly told friends she “regrets” filing for divorce from Pitt and questions whether she “made a terrible mistake.” According to its manufactured report, a so-called “source close to Angelina” tells the often discredited website that Jolie “misses having [Pitt] in her life.” The same almost assuredly concocted insider alleges the actress has “major regrets” over ending their marriage and “can’t help but question if she made the right choices.” To make its premise appear believable, the blog has its unnamed and untraceable “source” throw in how Jolie “misses waking up next to him… and going to bed next to Brad.”

But then HollywoodLies tips off what precipitated its latest made-up article. The site writes, “This revelation comes after Brad’s been spotted looking super sexy on the set of his new movie… showing off his muscles in a tight white t-shirt.” The repeatedly disproven blog adds, “Maybe it’s his hot new look that’s inspired her to start missing him.” No, it’s actually photos of Pitt looking handsome on the L.A. set of Once Upon A Time that inspired the website to spin its current fiction about the stars, who are going through a widely reported acrimonious divorce.

As noted above, while the online outlet now contends that Jolie “regrets” her split from Pitt, on September 4, the same website maintained Jolie “regrets” ever starting a relationship with Pitt and wants him “out of her life” for good. In that similarly fabricated article, the blog also asserted a “source close to Angelina” told HollywoodLies, “The days of Angelina missing Brad have well and truly passed… Angelina really resents having anything to do with Brad, and wishes she could just forget he even exists.” So, just a few weeks a “source close to Angelina” swore up and down that Jolie doesn’t miss Pitt and regrets having been in a relationship with him, and now she has “major regrets” over their split and really “misses having him in her life,” all because he looked “super sexy” in a photo?

Basically, as Gossip Cop has proven over the years, HollywoodLies takes tidbits from the week’s news and crafts phony angles and articles around them. The website appears to have no regard for accurate reporting or the truth in its quest for traffic, which is why so many of its stories are verifiably wrong and often contradictory. Back in 2016, Star published a similar cover story titled, “Angie’s Regret: ‘I Want Brad Back!'” At the time her rep exclusively assured Gossip Cop the claim was “not true,” and we’re told nothing has changed to this day.
