Is Brad Pitt getting sobriety help from David Spade? A tabloid report claims the actor is leaning on his childhood friend for support. Gossip Cop looked into the story.

According to the National Enquirer, Pitt has “turned to old pal David Spade for help adjusting to sobriety!” A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “It’s the first time in 10 years that Brad has been truly sober.” And Spade is supposedly a big part of that.

“David really had to ease up on his drinking after his daughter was born eight years ago, so he knows what Brad’s been going through, and he’s been a big help,” claims the supposed snitch. The alleged tipster even adds, “David’s hosted dinner parties for Brad and introduced him to women. He wants Brad to socialize again, but in a responsible way.”

But Gossip Cop spoke with an impeccable source, who exclusively tells us these allegations are “totally false.” That’s not surprising. The National Enquirer is guilty of publishing a number of untrue stories about Pitt in the wake of his split from Angelina Jolie.

That includes a disturbing cover story in September that wrongly accused Pitt of beating Jolie during their marriage. There was also an article from the supermarket tabloid erroneously claiming Pitt secretly met up with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston at a New York hotel. Simply put, the gossip magazine doesn’t know what it’s talking about… and that actually may be on purpose, just to sell copies.
