A new tabloid report alleges that Brad Pitt’s divorce from Angelina Jolie has taken a “destructive” toll on his physical and mental well-being, but this tale of a health crisis is unfounded. Gossip Cop has the exclusive truth about the situation.

The latest issue of OK! features an article claiming the actor is deteriorating as a result of the tumultuous split from his estranged wife and custody battle over their six kids. A seemingly phony source tells the magazine Pitt “weighs well under 150 pounds and survives on maybe two hours of sleep a night.”

The outlet’s dubious insider further purports the actor has told friends he “feels too nauseated to eat,” but they believe he’s “subconsciously punishing himself for failing at his marriage.” The “source” goes on to say that even Jolie has become concerned about her ex’s condition, “and suggested he get help, because it’s in the children’s best interest to have their father functioning.”

If this account sounds familiar, it’s because Gossip Cop just recently called out OK’s sister publication, Star, for its similarly bogus cover story alleging Pitt developed an eating disorder following his breakup. Despite the claim not being true a week ago, we once again checked in with a mutual friend of ours and Pitt’s, and we’re told he’s still not suffering any post-split health issues.

Of course, going through a divorce with young kids involved is a stressful process, but the actor isn’t becoming physically and mentally ill over the situation. A reliable source tells us he’s doing well and the claims of declining health are “total B.S.” It should also be noted, Gossip Cop previously busted OK! for publishing a contradictory story claiming Jolie was the one having a “breakdown” over the divorce.
