Did Angelina Jolie wear a sentimental ring given to her by Brad Pitt at the 2017 Telluride Film Festival to get him back? That's the claim from one particular tabloid. Gossip Cop, however, can reveal the truth.
The absurd allegation comes from the latest issue of the National Enquirer, which blares in a new headline, "Aching Angie Puts Brad's Ring On It!" In the accompanying story, the supermarket tabloid ridiculously asserts that the "desperate" actress purposely wore a ring given to her by Pitt at this year's Telluride Film Festival to lure him back. A so-called "source" is quoted as saying, "Angie hoped Brad would see the photos [of her] and be moved by it. The ring is very special to both of them."
The Enquirer, which is no stranger to publishing inaccurate stories about the former couple, goes on to contend that Jolie wore the ring on the red carpet in an effort to send Pitt a "signal," hoping to reignite a spark and eventually reunite with the actor. "She's tried to raise six kids on her own, while managing her career and health. Now, she knows she can't do it without Brad. She's praying that this romantic symbol can bring them back together," further purports the outlet's questionable insider.
Let the preposterous scenario sink in. Jolie wore a ring that Pitt gave her, and on the off-chance he saw paparazzi pictures of her sporting that small bauble, magically he would reverse course and take Jolie back. That's insane.
Allow Gossip Cop to be the voice of reason and to set the record straight on this wholly manufactured tale. As improbable as the claims is, we checked with a source close to the actress who tells us the outlet's latest report is simply "nonsense." Jolie, who attended the premiere of her new Netflix film First They Killed My Father at the 2017 Telluride Film Festival earlier this month, did not purposely wear a ring given to her by Pitt, hoping he would see the photos and be so incredibly moved to take her back. It's all lies.
As we noted above, this is hardly the first time Gossip Cop has busted the publication for seemingly fabricating bogus reports about Jolie. Interestingly, though the tabloid alleges the actress wants to reunite with Pitt, a few months ago it published a wholly fictitious article that maintained Jolie was dating a mystery man. That report had the headline of "In Love Angelina Replaces Brad!" And nine months ago, Gossip Cop corrected the same untrustworthy publication when it ran a cover story that swore up and down that Jolie was on a hunger strike and dying. Like those older debunked claims, the current one also doesn't ring true.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
