Angelina Jolie is not dating Cambodian rapper and filmmaker PraCh Ly, despite a false tabloid report. There’s simply no truth to the romance rumors. Gossip Cop can exclusively clear up the situation.

“Angelina’s New Love,” reads a headline in the latest issue of OK!, which claims the actress has a new man in her life for the first time since her 2016 split from Brad Pitt. The supposed suitor is a 38-year-old Cambodian lyricist who Jolie met through Loung Ung, a human rights activist and the author behind her new Netflix movie First They Killed My Father. “They’re a perfect match,” a so-called “source” tells the magazine. “Their connection is becoming stronger by the day. It’s just what Angie needs.”

The outlet’s questionable insider goes on to say that Ly has formed a tight bond with the actress’s oldest son Maddox, who she adopted from Cambodia. According to the suspicious source, the rapper has spent time with all of Jolie’s children, but he’s “really taken Madd under his wing.” The alleged tipster adds, “Angie hasn’t let anyone new into her life in a long time, but when she falls, she falls hard.”

However, the only remotely true aspect of this story is that the actress met the Cambodian rapper through their mutual friend and collaborator Ung. Gossip Cop is exclusively assured by Jolie’s camp that the two aren’t dating. And even Ly didn’t want to touch this rumor when we reached out to him.

Ly has attended a number of events for Jolie’s film, including a screening at the Cambodia Town Film Festival, which he co-founded. The musician also moderated a panel between Jolie and Ung at the Aquarium of the Pacific last month. And it happens to be true that Ly has met Jolie’s kids, but that’s because he and Loung accompanied the clan to a recent ceremony at a Cambodian Buddhist temple in California. Regardless, the rapper and actress aren’t an item. This is nothing more than a tabloid attempting to spark a nonexistent romance simply because Jolie was spotted with the same man on more than one occasion.
