Brad Pitt is not "terrified" Angelina Jolie will cast a voodoo spell on him, despite a fake news story that's gaining traction online. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this fabricated claim, which is duping search engines, other outlets, and everyday readers. We're told it's 100 percent untrue.

According to RadarOnline, Pitt is supposedly "freaking out" because his estranged "witchy-wife" is busy "casting chilling voodoo spells to ruin his life." The often discredited site even maintains that it got its information from "pals" of Pitt. But to the careful reader, it becomes obvious that the webloid doesn't really have Pitt insiders providing it with stories. Instead, the outlet writes that Jolie was previously "rumored to have used black magic to woo Brad away from his then-wife, Jennifer Aniston."

The operative word here is "rumored," and frankly that's all RadarOnline has to back up its manufactured article. Still, it brazenly contends that a Pitt "source" tells it that "Brad's terrified she'll start using powerful spells and potions against him." The same seemingly concocted "source" supposedly adds, "He thinks she's out to make his life a misery and destroy him."

Continuing with its made up premise, the repeatedly disproven site alleges Pitt is "ready to believe she's using black magic," and uses its seemingly fictitious "source" to say in unnaturally expository language that the actor thinks Jolie "cursed his latest movie Allied, which ended up a box office flop," because his estranged wife was "intensely jealous of his co-star Marion Cotillard."

So, what's the big proof that Jolie may indeed practice voodoo and cast spells in her spare time? RadarOnline actually tries to justify its fabricated story by saying it "isn't so far-fetched" because "in [the movie] Maleficent she played a vengeful witch." And by that insane logic, it wouldn't be "so far-fetch" to believe Daniel Radcliffe is really a wizard.

Regardless of how absurd and baseless the webloid's article is, Gossip Cop still fact-checked the claim, as it were legitimate news. But it's not. It's just a collection of untruths. An actual pal of Pitt assures us that no real friends of the star are speaking to RadarOnline and, more significantly, he does not believe Jolie is "casting chilling voodoo spells to ruin his life." Additionally, a rep for Pitt exclusively tells Gossip Cop the assertion that the star is "terrified" she'll use "powerful spells and potions against him" is a complete lie.

Sadly, Gossip Cop is not surprised by the falsity of this latest report. RadarOnline has published a mindboggling number of fake news stories about the separated couple, including a tale about how Pitt and Jolie split two years before announcing their divorce. That wasn't true. And this new claim isn't true. If only Jolie could cast a spell and make RadarOnline's made-up articles disappear.

Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
