Angelina Jolie is not “dating again,” contrary to a report. This story wrongly regurgitates old rumors about the Oscar winner having a British boyfriend. Gossip Cop can once again set the record straight.

According to OK!, Jolie is “ready to love again” and has “fallen head over heels for a mysterious millionaire.” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “She’s keeping her cards close but is very happy.” Still, the alleged beau is described as a “polished Brit,” who is a “reputable art dealer and philanthropist” whom Jolie met “through mutual friends.”

It’s further claimed Jolie has “introduced him to her kids already,” prompting the tabloid to editorialize, “Pretty sure this is more than just a fling.” So, how come the actress and her purported lover haven’t been seen together? The magazine offers up a convenient explanation, contending, “She doesn’t want his identity to be revealed until her divorce from Brad Pitt is official.”

Of course, it’s not said when the divorce might be finalized, or even for how long Jolie and this “mysterious millionaire” have been together. It’s also unclear why Jolie doesn’t want this supposed boyfriend’s identity revealed until her divorce is official, but is okay with her children already meeting him. There’s holes throughout this story, just as there have been every time the gossip media has spread this unsubstantiated narrative.

Most recently, the outlet’s sister publication, RadarOnline, peddled a version of this storyline on its website about two weeks ago. Some of the quotes are word-for-word the same, yet OK! has no new evidence to back them up, just as the blog had no proof to support the claims in the original story, either. And at the time, Gossip Cop explained how this idea of Jolie having a secret British boyfriend began in the spring of 2017, and has spread from tabloid to tabloid with not one magazine able to offer up verifiable information.

Suspiciously, each time the basic claim is repeated, it’s with a new twist, such as the star planning to marry or have another baby with this alleged mystery man. Meanwhile, more reputable places have repeatedly reported that Jolie is not dating at all, let alone in a serious relationship. In March, for example, E! Online stressed, “She’s very focused on her kids and doesn’t have a lot going on outside of that.”

It was even noted, “She has had a few business meetings with men, but they were not dates.” And until the gossip media can provide any credible evidence otherwise, these tales about Jolie “dating again” are not trustworthy.
