One of the blogs claims Angelina Jolie is getting support from Nicole Kidman amid her divorce from Brad Pitt. Gossip Cop can debunk the made-up story. Kidman’s spokesperson exclusively tells us it’s “not true at all.”

According to RadarOnline, Jolie “has found an unlikely ally” in Kidman, who supposedly has the actress’s back as she fights for custody of her six kids. An alleged insider tells the site, “She’s applauding Angie’s tough-as-nails approach to her high-profile custody war.”

The “source” further contends that Kidman regrets settling her divorce from Tom Cruise so quickly and privately because she could have ended up with more of his money, so she respects that Jolie isn’t making it easy on Pitt. “The way Angie is doing things is just completely different in Nicole’s eyes, because she isn’t letting Brad get away with anything or use his clout to silence her,” adds the questionable tipster.

The seemingly phony source goes on to say that Kidman doesn’t have “any kind of ill will for Brad, it’s just that she likes seeing the playing field leveled like this.” The alleged insider adds, “It’s a real sign of progress that Angie wasn’t just written a check and told to keep her mouth shut, which is basically what happened in Nicole’s own divorce.”

The website’s article is a work of fiction. A rep for Kidman tells Gossip Cop on the record that the actress hasn’t involved herself in Jolie’s divorce or custody battle. It should be noted, there’s nothing to indicate that the two actresses even know each other very well. Kidman and Jolie were photographed together at the premiere of the 2007 documentary God Grew Tired of Us, but there aren’t any additional images of the two mingling over the years.

It’s possible the blog created this premise because Kidman once compared her past relationship with Cruise to Pitt and Jolie’s high-profile relationship. The actress noted in a 2013 Vanity Fair interview that few people can relate to the level of fame she and Cruise experienced as a couple, saying it was “very intoxicating” and “deeply romantic.” The actress added, “I’m sure Brad and Angelina have that because there’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”

Of course, Kidman was only speculating at the time about what Jolie and Pitt’s relationship must have been like. If she and Jolie were actually close friends, the actress would have likely had more insight to share. Meanwhile, RadarOnline has little credibility when it comes to reporting about Jolie’s personal life. This year alone, we’ve called out the blog for romantically linking her to Chris Hemsworth, Ethan Hawke, Garrett Hedlund and a so-called “British mystery man,” none of whom she’s dated. Regardless, Gossip Cop can confirm that Kidman isn’t playing a role in the actress’s divorce from Pitt.
