One of the blogs is claiming Angelina Jolie and Colin Farrell may be “rekindling their romance.” Considering that the two stars never dated, there’s nothing to “rekindle.” Gossip Cop can debunk the bogus story.
According to RadarOnline, Jolie and Farrell hooked up while filming 2004’s Alexander but the relationship fizzled out because both were in “wild” periods of their lives. A supposed source tells the website the two are growing close again now that Farrell is “a changed man” and a “doting dad” to his two sons.
The alleged insider goes on to say that Jolie is “determined to explore their connection further and would date him in a heartbeat,” adding, “She usually gets what she wants and there’s no denying they have major chemistry.” The tipster further maintains that Jolie brought four of her kids to the premiere of Disney’s Dumbo last month because she’s reconnected with Farrell, who stars in the film.
The first major problem with the blog’s story is that Jolie and Farrell were never romantically involved. This wrong rumor was started in 2013 by Perez Hilton, who falsely claimed the actress had been “hooking up” with her Alexander co-star in 2004 but ended up “settling” for Brad Pitt. Jolie and Farrell’s camps each laughed off the report.
Last month, Gossip Cop busted RadarOnline’s sister publication, OK!, for making up a story about Jolie wanting to date Farrell. Shortly after that, we debunked a report claiming Jolie was “leaning on” Farrell amid her divorce from Pitt. This phony saga is emerging simply because the actress attended the premiere of Dumbo, which just so happens to feature the actor in a role.
As Gossip Cop has previously pointed out, Jolie frequently brings her kids to red carpet premieres. A few weeks before seeing Dumbo, the actress and her children attended the opening of The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind in New York City. The gossip media is simply attempting to create a romantic connection that isn’t there. A source close to Jolie assures us she isn’t growing close to Farrell, who she worked with a decade and a half ago.
It’s worth noting, RadarOnline has proven to have zero insight into the actress’s personal life. Back in January, we called out the blog for wrongly speculating Jolie was developing a romance with director Alfonso Cuaron. The actress has remained single since her separation from Pitt and is only focused on work and her kids at this time.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
