Did Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Garner bond over being single moms? One of this week’s tabloids claims the actresses opened up to each other about their mutual struggles, but Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we’ve exclusively learned the truth.

According to OK!, the pair had a heart-to-heart conversation over their high-profile splits when they met at a “recent event.” The magazine fails to mention when or where this supposed “event” took place, and as far as Gossip Cop can tell, the two actresses haven’t attended the same function anytime recently. Still, the outlet quotes a so-called “source” as saying, “Angie wanted to know how Jen managed to get on such good terms with Ben [Affleck], especially now that he’s moved on.”

The outlet’s dubious insider continues, “Jen said that she just keeps reminding herself that the kids come first.” The alleged source further contends that Garner told Jolie to give Brad Pitt credit for getting sober as she can relate to having an estranged husband who’s struggled with alcohol problems, “and that family outings are key for helping the kids to adjust, even if their parents aren’t together.”

The supposed tipster concludes, “Now Angie plans to reach out more to Brad to see if they can put their differences aside and mend their fractured family, like Jen did.” Gossip Cop, however, is told by a source close to the situation that this interaction between the women simply never happened. It seems the publication just decided to arbitrarily link two A-list actresses going through a divorce from a famous spouse.

Last year, Garner jokingly told the paparazzi that she was dating Pitt, but that appears to be the extent of her connection to the ex-couple. Jolie and Garner may in fact have plenty to bond over, but the two simply never shared an intimate chat. This is more fan fiction than journalism.
