Angelina Jolie has not been having a string of "casual hookups" with various women, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. There's no truth to it.
Jolie reportedly had a fling with actress Jenny Shimizu in the '90s, and according to NW, the actress is re-exploring her sexuality following her split from Brad Pitt. "She's been enjoying little dates and casual flings with both guys and girls over the past year, but she's definitely curious about this whole new LGBTQ world that's available now," a supposed source tells the outlet.
The alleged insider further contends that Jolie has been watching how stars like Kristen Stewart and Miley Cyrus have handled the spotlight while dating other women. "She has every intention of keeping her private life private, but sometimes things don't go to plan. She wants to be ready in case she's caught out with one of her new friends. She doesn't care so much about what the world thinks, more about the kids - and they're all behind whatever makes her happy."
That section alone doesn't make much sense. If Jolie doesn't care about "what the world thinks," why is she worried about handling the spotlight of a relationship with a woman? And if the actress's kid are "all behind" her being happy, then why is she concerned about what they'll think? These contradictions hardly matter considering the entire narrative is phony.
From there, the suspicious tipster says Jolie has reconnected with Shimizu, who's happily married, but has been setting up the actress on blind dates. According to the outlet, Shimizu sends Jolie daily emails with "women to meet, from yoga instructors to goth tattoo artists." The seemingly phony source adds, "She just wants to have no-strings fun. She wants to cut loose for over the first time in a decade. And now that the kids are older, there's no reason why she shouldn't do it!"
The tabloid's article has more in common with fan fiction than journalism. Gossip Cop ran the story by an individual close to Jolie, who tells us it's entirely fabricated. The actress has remained focused on her busy film career and raising her six kids. She's not spending the little downtime she has hooking up with random women.
It must also be stressed, NW has already proven to be clueless about the actress's love life. In September, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for falsely claiming Jolie was secretly hooking up with Bradley Cooper. This latest article makes no mention of that imaginary scenario.
Back in February, the tabloid made up a story about Jolie pursuing a romance with Sean Penn. Last year, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for wrongly reporting that Jolie had been secretly dating Keanu Reeves since 2017. The reason the outlet's stories are so contradictory is because none of them are true.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
