Brad Pitt is not in love with Jennifer Aniston again now that he's sober, despite a bogus new tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this fake news.
The latest issue of In Touch claims the actor recently called his ex-wife to make amends as part of his recovery process. A supposed "source" tells the magazine Pitt expressed remorse for causing the breakup of their marriage, and admitted his "long-held guilt over the pain he'd put her through." The outlet's dubious insider goes on to say Aniston both forgave him and opened up about "how much his honest words meant to her," and the conversation prompted her ex-husband to question "if he would have left Jen for [Angelina Jolie] if he hadn't been so dependent on alcohol and drugs back then."
"He now believes that leaving Jen for Angie was the biggest mistake of his life," adds the magazine's seemingly phony source. "As it stands, Brad is in love with his first wife again. And like his fans, friends and loved ones, he feels he never should have broken up with Jen 12 years ago. Jen will always be the love of Brad's life." The tabloid's report, however, is based on a lie.
Gossip Cop already busted In Touch's sister publication, Life & Style, when it wrongly reported earlier this month that Pitt apologized to Aniston. A mutual pal of ours and Pitt exclusively assured us he never called his ex-wife to ask for her forgiveness, meaning that this flawed follow-up story revolves around an phone call that never took place. Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Pitt regarding the new claim he's still in love with his married ex-wife, and we're assured that part of the story is also "total nonsense."
This also wouldn't be the first time we've had to correct a bogus In Touch cover story about the ex-spouses' relationship. Gossip Cop recently called out the tabloid for falsely claiming Pitt and Aniston had a "secret reunion." Shortly after that fabrication, we debunked the magazine's ridiculous report about Pitt and Aniston co-starring in a movie to get revenge on Jolie. This latest cover story from the unreliable outlet is equally untrue.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
