HollywoodLife claims to have "exclusively learned" that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's six kids hope their estranged parents will reunite over the holidays so they can all "spend Christmas together as a family." Gossip Cop, however, has learned that no one close to the family spoke to the untrustworthy website about the Jolie-Pitt children's Christmas wishes.
A so-called "source" tells the outlet that the actress "really wants to take the kids away for Christmas," particularly to Cambodia, but her estranged husband "wants to spend time with the children too, so he's begged Angelina to stay in town." The site's alleged insider goes on to say the exes' kids also asked their mom to stay in Los Angeles because "they hate to think of [their dad] being on his own."
The blog's bogus source further purports that Jolie "will have the kids Christmas Eve and Christmas Day morning, then they will go to their dad's for a few hours before heading back to Angelina's for dinner." The supposed insider adds, "The kids would really love to spend the day with both of their parents together, but that's still really not an option. Brad and Angelina have come pretty far since their break-up, but they're definitely not at the stage of being friends yet."
Does HollywoodLies, as its known, really expect its readers to believe that someone close enough to either Pitt or Jolie would then leak the information to an untrustworthy blog? Gossip Cop has repeatedly been assured that no one in the actor or actress's inner circles discuss their personal life with the website, and that's especially true when it comes to their kids.
It should also be noted, Gossip Cop busted HollywoodLife for concocting other bogus holiday-related stories about the family. We called out the outlet just last week for making up a phony article about Pitt and Jolie fighting over who spends Thanksgiving with the kids. Shortly before that, we debunked the webloid's made-up report about Jolie inviting Pitt to go trick-or-treating on Halloween with her and the children. Based on its (predictable) history, Gossip Cop suspects HollywoodLies will next fabricate a story surrounding the family's New Year's plans.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
