Are Angelina Jolie and Keanu Reeves dating? That's the claim in one of this week's tabloids. Gossip Cop, however, can debunk the romance rumors.
According to NW, the stars have been "quietly dating" since July 2017 when they supposedly took a "top-secret trip to a secluded Greek island together." Jolie is said to have met the actor after she and her six kids moved next door to his mom's house in Los Angeles. "They've never worked together and didn't really get to know each other until last year," says a supposed source. "Keanu is very close to his mom and visits her a lot."
The alleged insider goes on to say that Jolie's kids approve of her relationship with the actor, who also enjoys "being around Ange's children." The questionable tipster adds, "He loves kids and has been a good influence on Ange. He's so kind, giving and genuine - all the qualities Ange now wants in a man. She's done with the drama." As for Reeves, the "insider" says he's "drawn to mysterious women like Ange who have a darker side."
The seemingly phony source goes on to say that Jolie and Reeves are keeping their relationship "firmly under wraps" for now, but the actor's mom wants the two to go public. "She'd love to see Keanu finally settle down and Ange would fit right in with the family," adds the suspicious tipster.
The magazine's report is pure fiction. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Jolie, who tells us on the condition of anonymity that the actress is single and entirely focused on her children. We're further assured she didn't vacation with Reeves in Greece in July 2017. Additionally, if the movie stars were truly in a relationship for more than a year now, it's nearly impossible they wouldn't have been spotted together. There's also not a single other publication in the world that has romantically linked the two.
Meanwhile, People magazine reported this past January that Jolie "is single and not interested in dating." E! News confirmed in March that Jolie is "not dating" and remains "very focused on her kids." Not only is that still the case, but it disproves NW's claim that she's been with Reeves since July 2017.
It's also worth noting, the tabloid can't keeps its stories straight when it comes to Jolie's love life. This year alone, the magazine has thrown her into nonexistent romances with Justin Theroux, Chris Hemsworth and her assistant director on the Netflix movie First They Killed My Father. Now the outlet wants readers to believe she's been dating Reeves this whole time? It's simply not true.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
