Angelina Jolie isn’t “sucking up” to Brad Pitt’s family in an effort to get them on her side amid their divorce, despite a ridiculous new report. One of the webloids claims the actress wants the support of her estranged husband’s family in case a custody battle erupts, but Gossip Cop has the truth.

According to RadarOnline, Jolie is scheming to get in the good graces of the Pitt family so she has an upper-hand in her divorce proceedings. A so-called “source” tells the site, “Angie’s relationship with [Brad’s mom] Jane was actually going great guns before the separation. She was also quite close to his sister Lisa and brother Doug.”

The outlet’s dubious insider goes on to say the actor hasn’t spent much time with his family since separating, which Jolie saw as an opportunity to swoop in. “Angie has ironically been in touch with them more than he has!” adds the questionable source. “She insists it’s for the kids’ sake and that she has no beef with her in-laws, but anyone can tell this is about image and control as much as anything.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us Jolie isn’t trying to turn Pitt’s family against him, as the webloid alleges. We’re told the site’s take on the situation is simply “false.” The additional allegation about Pitt shunning his family in the wake of his divorce is also completely untrue.

In fact, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to debunk a phony article accusing the actress of being manipulative. Gossip Cop previously busted RadarOnline’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, when it wrongly reported Jolie reunited with estranged dad Jon Voight just to prevent him from supporting Pitt. We also called out the webloid for falsely accusing Jolie of lying about cooking for her kids in a recent interview. This latest article denigrating the actress’s character is similarly bogus.
