Brad Pitt was not “faking” his smile at a charity concert for a disease that affects children, despite a new, highly sensationalized report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the fabricated story. We’re told he was “genuinely happy” to lend his support to the cause.

According to a headline from RadarOnline, “Brad Pitt Struggles To Smile At Hollywood Event While Custody Battle Wears Him Down.” The webloid then asks whether he was “faking” it on Saturday when he “put on a brave public face” at the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation’s fourth annual ROCK4EB charity concert in Malibu. The site really has no proof whatsoever that the actor was pretending to be enjoying himself. Instead it vaguely floats, “Pitt, who is going through a nasty divorce from Angelina Jolie, was surrounded by reminders of his previous marriage to Jennifer Aniston as their pals Sting and Courtney Cox were also on hand.” “His smile looked strained,” adds the repeatedly disproven outlet.

In reality, Pitt attended the event to lend support for the rare genetic disease, which causes painful blisters and abrasions to youngsters from even the slightest touch to their skin. The disorder, of which there is no cure, affects approximately 200 kids a year and can even be fatal. Basically, RadarOnline took Pitt’s nice gesture of being at the fundraiser, and posing for photos with some of the afflicted children and other stars, and turned it into a negative. Once again, the webloid, with its concocted tale of Pitt “faking it,” was itself manufacturing fake news.

Still, Gossip Cop checked with a source connected to the event, who exclusively assures us Pitt was “genuinely happy” to be at the fundraiser and its concert, which drew a number of other stars, including Rami Malek and Kaley Cuoco. Unfortunately, Gossip Cop is not surprised by the site’s fabricated story. Remember, this is all from the same webloid that falsely claimed Pitt’s friendship with Selena Gomez caused his divorce. It’s also the same outlet that wrongly reported Pitt was getting divorce advice from Gwyneth Paltrow. Much like those articles, the latest about Pitt “faking” his smile at the Epidermolysis Bullosa event is entirely untrue.
