Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are NOT adopting another child from Africa, despite a fabricated tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

First, OK! quotes a so-called “friend of the couple” as falsely asserting that they’ve “fought their way back from the brink of divorce” and are now supposedly “celebrating saving their marriage with the best present possible: a seventh child.” This supposed “friend” adds, “Now that the divorce is off and they’re back on track, they feel adopting another child will strengthen their relationship even more.”

The magazine’s seemingly made-up source further claims Pitt and Jolie wish to “adopt an older child” from an African nation because they “believe that adopting an older child will make people aware of orphans who are often overlooked.” The outlet’s dubious source goes on to say, “They feel that by adopting a child who is 10 or older, he or she will mix in better with their rambunctious kids, who are getting bigger by the day. The kids can’t wait to add another brother or sister to their gang of six.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Pitt, who exclusively tells us the tabloid’s adoption claim is simply “not true.” Of course, the inaccuracy of the publication’s story isn’t particularly surprising, as we have repeatedly called out OK! for creating tales about Pitt and Jolie.

Gossip Cop recently corrected the magazine’s false claim Pitt and Jolie were living “separate lives.” And shortly before that piece of fiction, we debunked the tabloid’s totally bogus cover story alleging the two were constantly fighting and headed for a “$400 million divorce.” This latest report about the famous couple is equally false.
