Brad Pitt is not going to dish about Angelina Jolie on Jada Pinkett Smith's Facebook podcast, "Red Table Talk," or anywhere else for that matter, despite a bogus report that was picked up by a few untrustworthy sites. Gossip Cop can exclusively shoot down this phony claim. We're exclusively told will "never" happen.
The fictitious premise was first floated by another podcast called "Straight Shuter" that's being promoted by the same company that owns such equally unreliable outlets as the National Enquirer, Globe, Star, and RadarOnline. According to the podcast's host, Rob Shuter, "Brad Pitt is in talks to do a big, big, big sit-down interview... The first one he's done since the divorce, since the breakup with Angelina Jolie." After maintaining how "everyone wants to get Brad's side of the story," the host rattles off what listeners would like Pitt discuss with Smith, including "what happened on that plane; what went down with Angelina Jolie; why did you two breakup?"
The host then asserts that "now it looks like [Pitt's] finally going to tell his side of the story, not to Oprah, not to Robin Roberts, not to Jimmy Fallon," but to Smith on her Facebook show. "Jada is becoming the new Oprah Winfrey," adds the host. Shuter further contends Pitt "wants to" dish about Jolie to Smith because she's "someone that he trusts. Somebody that understands him. Somebody that's [also] a star."
To put this in a perspective a little more before revealing what Pitt's camp now exclusively shares with Gossip Cop, it bears mentioning the host of the podcast previously claimed rather absurdly that Pitt was "in love" with Neri Oxman and "going back to school to impress her." Of course, as Gossip Cop was among the first to note, Pitt was never in a romantic relationship with the MIT professor. At the time of that report, his rep called the story a fabrication.
Shuter also falsely alleged three months ago that Pitt turned down Leonardo DiCaprio's invitation to join his group of party friends. In that off-base article, it was stated DiCaprio bonded so well with his Once Upon A Time In Hollywood co-star, he "made Brad an offer most men could not refuse - come join the [expletive] patrol." As widely known to everyone, except perhaps to that podcast host, DiCaprio's ladies-loving group wasn't called the "[expletive] patrol," but rather the "[expletive] posse." Regardless, Pitt's spokesperson also called that tale a fabrication.
That brings us to the latest story about Pitt looking to do an interview about Jolie on Smith's Facebook podcast, a claim the repeatedly discredited blog, Celebrity Insider, picked up without even bothering to fact-check. Perhaps hinting to how Pitt has not badmouthed his estranged wife in the more than two years since their split, the actor's rep tells Gossip Cop the premise about him suddenly wanting to air their dirty laundry "makes no sense." And it makes less sense, considering Pitt and Jolie are close to settling their custody battle before it goes to trial in early December. "He will never dish on her in public and certainly not on a podcast," Pitt's spokesman exclusively reiterates to Gossip Cop.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
