Angelina Jolie is not "struggling with overwhelming sadness" after her "first trip without Brad [Pitt]," despite a made-up and factually inaccurate report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this fabrication. We're told it's "wrong on all counts."

According to the repeatedly discredited HollywoodLife, "Jolie and her kids went on their first international trip to London since she filed from divorce from Pitt," and "being overseas made her realize just how much she misses Brad." The often inaccurate webloid quotes a so-called "source" as alleging that after her visit to London with the kids, Jolie misses "Brad's warmth, protection and his help with the children while traveling."

The clueless site then editorializes how it "makes sense that this trip served as a trigger for her, as she and Brad traveled overseas a lot together." The same seemingly manufactured "source" adds, "Planning this trip made Angelina realize she really feels alone and vulnerable. To help alleviate her nerves, and in an attempt to fill Brad's big void, Angelina increased her huge entourage and traveled with a half-dozen bodyguards and even more nannies to help deal with her sense of loneliness."

The report by HollywoodLies, as it's known, is untrue and inaccurate. For starters, Jolie and all her children traveled to Cambodia a month ago for the premiere of her film First They Killed My Father, so this was definitely not her "first trip without Brad." Additionally, the site's contention that adding a "half-dozen bodyguards and even more nannies" could replace the "warmth" of one's husband (and father of their children) and help with her "loneliness" is perhaps one of the dumbest claims ever made from an outlet that's made a mind-boggling number of ridiculously false assertions.

Then there's the matter of Jolie's alleged "overwhelming sadness," which Gossip Cop is told is categorically false. The actress remains steadfast in her resolve to divorce Pitt following the incident involving their oldest son Maddox aboard a private jet in September. Our impeccable insider says the HollywoodLife story is "wrong on all counts."

Of course, ever since Jolie announced she was divorcing Pitt, HollywoodLies has been churning out a slew of provably untrue stories about the actress. The site made up claims about Jolie hooking up with Johnny Depp. And it also published fake news that Gossip Cop busted about Jolie supposedly dating Jared Leto. Much like those articles, the latest claim about Jolie being sad on her (not) "first trip" without Pitt is also verifiably wrong.

Our Verdict

Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
