A new report claims Angelina Jolie is feeling "overwhelmed" with life following her split from Brad Pitt and misses having him around to help parent their six kids. The story is entirely fabricated. Gossip Cop can correct it.
According to HollywoodLife, the actress is struggling to balance her career with raising six children, and the stress is getting to her. A so-called "source" is quoted as saying, "Angelina is an emotional roller coaster after her divorce from Brad. One week she feels completely over him and the next week she genuinely misses the father of her children. She is desperately trying to keep it all together..."
The outlet's questionable insider goes on to say that Jolie is "feeling overwhelmed with her life and all of her daily responsibilities," and found it "a lot easier when she had Brad's help daily." The seemingly nonexistent tipster adds, "Even though the divorce was her choice, she has a hard time not being mad at him for no longer being around."
The blog's premise doesn't make much sense from the start. It's no secret that Jolie and Pitt's custody battle has been contentious and the actress hasn't been able to agree on the terms. And yet, the website is saying she doesn't like being a single parent and misses having her estranged husband around to help. The outlet's premise just doesn't align with the reality of the situation.
Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with a Jolie confidante, who tells us on the condition of anonymity that the blog's story is completely untrue. Our trusted source pointed out the many examples of the actress taking her kids on fun outings over the past several months. In fact, The Daily Mail recently posted photos of Jolie shopping in Los Angeles with two of her daughters, and noted she "put her legal woes aside as she appeared gleeful" during the outing. The site added that despite her custody battle, Jolie has "been proving herself to be a hands-on and doting mom."
Another article, which had photos of Jolie smiling ear to ear while taking her kids shopping at a Los Angeles Whole Foods, featured the headline, "Angelina Jolie beams as she takes big brood to LA grocery store... amid ugly war with ex Brad Pitt." It's clear the actress has been able to put aside the stress of her divorce while she's spending time with her kids. It's also very apparent that the actress doesn't feel "overwhelmed" when she's with them. The blog's account of the situation is simply made-up.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
