A new report about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt having a "slim" chance of being "good friends" again is nothing more than yet another fake news story from HollywoodLife. The site, seemingly using Captain Obvious again as its "source," has once more made up a phony tale about the divorcing stars. Gossip Cop has been assured by individuals connected to both Pitt and Jolie that no real person in their inner circles are actually leaking anything to that repeatedly debunked outlet.

In its latest tall tale, the serial fibbers at HollywoodLies, as it's nicknamed, claim to "exclusively" know why it's "unlikely Angie and Brad will ever be 'good friends' again." The blog's big revelation is that Jolie and Pitt can't "put aside their differences and resume their friendships as if nothing ever happened." The often discredited site then simply takes comments that Jolie and Pitt have publicly made and rewritten them to make it sounds as if the outlet was given some inside information from a "source." But it's all one fabrication after another, with really no insight offered.

HollywoodLies' seemingly manufactured "source" is quoted as saying, "Splitting up from Brad meant Angelina losing her best friend," and she "definitely struggled along the way." After that meaningless remark, which could be applied to virtually all divorcing couples, the blog's supposed "source" adds (as it's been widely reported) that Pitt and Jolie "are able to talk civilly now, and a lot of the anger has dissipated, but they are still very far from being good friends." "It's unlikely they will ever get to that stage again," concludes the highly suspect tipster.

Curiously, the outlet doesn't mention a single world about how Jolie didn't stop the FBI and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services from investigating Pitt for child abuse, resulting in him being denied access to his kids for a long time and then later with supervision. Pitt was eventually completely cleared of any wrongdoing, but not before his name was dragged through the mud. Perhaps that might contribute to why he and Jolie might not be "good friends" down the road.

Simply, HollywoodLife makes up fake news about Pitt and Jolie quite a lot. And Gossip Cop has rightfully exposed the site for its questionable practices. Among the dozens of provably untrue stories published about the estranged spouses were fabricated tales about the actress dating and wanting to adopt a baby with a mysterious British billionaire, hooking up with Johnny Depp and Jared Leto, and Jolie and Pitt having a "secret rendezvous," where they meet up.

The website has also concocted false reports about Father's Day plans that Pitt never really had with his kids. And it has also posted, among other falsehoods, a number of wholly untrue articles about Pitt dating Kate Hudson. The only thing there's a slim chance of is HollywoodLies publishing original and accurate information about Brangelina.

Our Verdict

Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
