One of this week's tabloids claims Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may be calling off their divorce following a recent meeting where they discussed custody arrangements with their lawyers. The story is completely untrue. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
A little more than a week ago, the estranged spouses met at an attorney's office in Beverly Hills to continue negotiations regarding the custody of their six kids. OK! is now pretending to have the inside scoop on what went down during the meeting. A supposed source tells the magazine, "They arrived with no expectations other than to talk like two adults over coffee and tea. But the second Brad saw Angie he started to tear up."
The outlet's "insider" goes on to claim Pitt apologized to Jolie for the events that led to end of their marriage, "but Angie surprised him by begging for his forgiveness. She admitted they've both been through so much. Before they left, they shared a long hug and agreed that they wanted to meet again."
From there, the alleged tipster maintains that friends of the exes believe they could get back together. "Brad never wanted to end their marriage, and he'd fight to save it if Angie gave him the encouragement to do so," contends the questionable source. "Truth is, she misses Brad and he's still the best-looking man she's ever had," adds the purported source.
None of this is accurate. The Blast, a much more reliable celebrity news outlet than OK!, reported that Pitt and Jolie's custody meeting was "heated" and "tense." The site noted the actor was "pacing back and forth" during the meeting, while the actress "appeared to be visibly upset with the discussions." The estranged spouses have been battling over a custody agreement for quite some time now, and they didn't fall back into each other's arms during their most recent session with lawyers.
Gossip Cop also checked in with a source close to the situation, who wasn't able to speak on the record, but assures us the exes aren't calling off their divorce. The tabloid's account of what transpired during Pitt and Jolie's meeting is entirely made-up.
It's worth noting, OK! published multiple articles last month about Pitt supposedly dating Charlize Theron. Those romance rumors were bogus, and now the magazine seems to be switching course by claiming the actor is getting back together with his estranged wife. That narrative, however, is no more realistic.
Meanwhile, the phony narrative about the estranged spouses reuniting isn't new. Gossip Cop called out the publication in September 2017 for wrongly reporting Pitt had moved back in with Jolie and their kids. The tabloid simply has no insight into the status of the ex-couple's divorce.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
