Angelina Jolie did not file for divorce and sole custody of her and Brad Pitt’s six kids because she feared her children would be placed with relatives or in foster care, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. We’re told it’s untrue.

According to Life & Style, Jolie filed for sole custody because “if she didn’t, she was terrified she could lose her kids.” A so-called “source” tells the tabloid when the Los Angeles County’s Department of Children and Family Services began investigating the incident aboard a private plane with Pitt, Jolie and their kids in mid-September, “Social workers told Angie if there was cause to believe the kids were in danger under the same roof as Brad, the kids could be placed with relatives or even in foster care.” “She wasn’t willing to risk it, so she filed for divorce and sole physical custody on September 19,” asserts the magazine.

The publication alleges it has a “another source” telling it that “Angie also was concerned about what the investigation might uncover about her.” The outlet contends that both its purported insiders “agree that Angie was going to do whatever was needed to make sure the children… stayed with her.” It should be noted that there has been no proof, at this point, that Pitt is a danger to his children. Additionally, the actor has fully cooperated with the Los Angeles County’s Department of Children and Family Services.

That said, Gossip Cop looked into the tabloid’s claim, and we’re exclusively told it’s completely untrue. Even a source close to Jolie assures us, “She did not fear they would be placed in foster care or with relatives.”
