A tabloid claims Angelina Jolie is dating again now that she's legally single and has set her sights on nabbing a rich businessman. The story is completely made-up. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
Earlier this month, a judge granted Jolie and Brad Pitt a dissolution of their status as a married couple as they continue finalizing their divorce. According to Star, the actress is pursuing a romance now that she's officially a single woman. "She's already been out on a couple dates, mostly with businessman types," a supposed source tells the magazine. "But she's kept it hyper hush-hush from the get-go because she didn't want people to know she was seeing anyone else before the divorce was final."
The alleged insider further contends that Jolie is on the hunt for a billionaire after seeing how Miranda Kerr went from Orlando Bloom to marrying Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel. "She probably imagines herself making the same kind of power move," adds the questionable tipster, who goes on to say the actress's friends have suggested she go after Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey or Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
From there, the seemingly phony source pretends to know how Jolie's six kids will feel when they find out their mom is dating again. "Maddox would be the most anxious about it, since he was front and center in her breakup with Brad," says the suspicious insider. "But all the children are now old enough to understand what their mom has been through and be cautiously happy for her." As for the actress, the "source" maintains she's looking forward to "a little revenge romance" to let Pitt know "she's doing just fine without him."
The tabloid's article is pure fiction. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the actress, who wasn't able to speak on the record, but tells us she remains focused on her children and work at this time. Jolie isn't back in the dating world yet, and she certainly isn't on the hunt for a billionaire boyfriend. People magazine recently noted that despite their newly single status, both Jolie and Pitt are "focused on what's best for the kids."
It should be mentioned, Star is the same outlet that Gossip Cop busted in February for falsely claiming Jolie was dating Sean Penn. Not only was that report untrue, but this latest one contradicts it by saying the actress is only dating now that she's legally single. Not to mention, Penn isn't a billionaire businessman.
Back in January, Gossip Cop also called out the magazine for making up a ridiculous story about Jolie trying to steal David Beckham from his wife Victoria. The publication simply churns out fabricated narratives surrounding the actress's post-split love life. This latest tall tale is just another example.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
