A new report claiming Angelina Jolie and Justin Theroux “talk for hours on end” is nothing more than fiction. The two stars have no connection to each other, let along “have feelings for one another,” despite a completely fabricated article that also falsely drags Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston into its made-up narrative. Gossip Cop has the truth.

Here’s what’s true: Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016, while Aniston and Theroux announced their split in February 2018. Since then, Pitt has not spent time with Aniston, his first ex-wife, nor has Theroux ever had a private dinner with Jolie. Any scenarios that deviate from that are lies. And that’s exactly what Celebrity Insider has been publishing for the last few days about the four stars.

Just one day after Gossip Cop busted the disreputable outlet for injecting Aniston into its series of fake news stories about Jolie and Theroux, that site has again concocted yet another phony angle to drive visitors to the unreliable blog. Once more it wrongly maintains, “Jolie’s romance with Justin Theroux is getting intense” and that it’s the second time the Oscar-winner has “snagged” a man from Aniston.

In addition to contending Theroux and Jolie have “feelings for one another,” the often disproven site asserts their supposed “romance [is] heating up.” Having again relied on an already discredited Life & Style cover story for its material, the blog alleges Jolie and Theroux speak on the phone “for hours on end.”

Later in its manufactured article, the outlet writes, “If they are dating… the whole thing could blow up” because of their exes, namely Pitt and Aniston. Wait, how did it go from their “romance heating up” and Jolie and Theroux having “feelings for one another” to “if they are dating”? The truth, which frequently eludes that website, is Jolie and Theroux are not dating.

While that blog casually throws around words like “insiders” and “friends,” in actuality the outlet has absolutely no proof or sources to back up its fictional scenario. And further evidence the site knows virtually nothing about its subjects is one of the article’s last lines, which asserts how since his split from Jolie, Pitt has dated “Sienna Miller, Kate Hudson, and Elle Macpherson. The only non-celebrity he [h]as allegedly dated is Neri Oxman.” The reality, however, is Pitt has dated none of those women.

Briefly, while Gossip Cop was the first to debunk the reports, Hudson herself later denied the rumor she was dating Pitt. Similarly, his rep confirmed to us that Pitt wasn’t dating Macpherson either. And Gossip Cop also shot down a phony cover story about Pitt dating Miller. Meanwhile, even though we were the first to correct stories linking the MIT professor to the movie star, ultimately Oxman publicly denied having dated Pitt.

In essence, the website’s entire story is a mishmosh of lies. And Gossip Cop knows this because we’ve fact-checked every single one of these claims. As widely reported earlier this year, Jolie has no interesting in dating anyone right now. In fact, we’ve recently been reassured by her camp that her focus remains on her kids and her career. Additionally, Theroux’s own rep told Gossip Cop on the record the actor isn’t involved at all with Jolie, and that tales tying them together are 100 percent “false.”

Notwithstanding, the ironically named Celebrity Insider has dressed up this total falsehood about Theroux and Jolie dating in three different ways over the course of as many days. But a lie is a lie no matter how many times the blog repackages it. Gossip Cop has reached out to the site’s managing editor about whether any attention is paid to accuracy, or if it’s all about traffic, and the truth be damned.
