(National Enquirer)

Angelina Jolie is NOT on the verge of being hospitalized, despite an alarming tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the report, which was seemingly fabricated.

This week, the National Enquirer has taken a break from featuring Donald Trump as its main cover story, and gone back to another favorite topic: Jolie’s health. The new edition blares, “Dying Angie 76 Lbs. & Hospitalized!” There’s even a tiny photo of an EMT truck that’s labeled “Ambulance drama.”

It was all designed to make readers think Jolie has been rushed to the hospital. Not so. Inside the issue, it’s revealed to be a bait-and-switch, as the actual article is about how her “unhinged behavior will send [the] raging, skeletal star to the psych ward!” Writes the supermarket tabloid, “Stressed-out over her brutal breakup from Brad Pitt, an emaciated Angelina Jolie is on the verge of a mental meltdown — and a return trip to the loony bin!”

A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Angie feels and looks like she’s becoming unhinged. She rages for hours about what a horrible father Brad was — and she spends her days poisoning the kids against him and letting her health go to hell!” Jolie is said to be suffering from panic attacks, refusing to eat, and engaging in “desperate and erratic” behavior.

Naturally, the publication refers to a doctor who has never met Jolie, but still finds it appropriate to say she’s “acted irrationally.” And another doctor concludes that her weight has “gone past the point of safety.” The story ends with an “insider” speculating Jolie might even be “haunted by suicidal thoughts.”

But what the magazine and its “source” deem a “new low” for Jolie is actually a new low for the outlet. The National Enquirer has spent years obsessing over the actress’ health. A 2015 cover story actually said Jolie was dying, and one from this past January asserted that Jolie was “82 pounds and refusing to eat.” (See more below.)

All of the articles were filled with fake concern and, of course, fake details. Now here we are again. But while Jolie has undoubtedly had a stressful few months, she has been taking care of herself. That’s a key part of remaining a devoted parent to her children. A rep for Jolie exclusively tells Gossip Cop the claims that she is now on the brink of a “meltdown” and could end up in the hospital are totally “not true.”
