A story saying Brad Pitt’s kids “approve” of him dating Jennifer Aniston again is completely made up. The actor isn’t back together with his ex-wife, nor have his children met her. Gossip Cop can debunk the phony report.

Life & Style has published yet another bogus article about Pitt and Aniston rekindling their romance. They haven’t, but the magazine is also involving the actor’s kids this time around. According to the outlet, Pitt’s four youngest children, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 11, are happy he’s reunited with Aniston.

As for Maddox, 18, and Pax, 16, the tabloid says the actor’s relationship with them has been strained since his split from Angelina Jolie. There’s actually a bit of truth to that, but nothing else in the article is accurate. An alleged insider is quoted as saying, “Jen knows how to make Brad happy, and the [four younger] kids see how much their dad has changed. They know he’s happier now and more at peace than he’s been in a while.”

Pitt is in a good place these days, but it has nothing to do with an imaginary romance with Aniston. In reality, getting sober played a big role in helping the actor find that “peace” the magazine claims Aniston has given him. A few months ago, Pitt opened up in a New York Times interview about his recovery from alcohol. Just last month, Pitt told the New York Times that all of the dating rumors surrounding him are untrue. That includes the rumors involving Aniston. The actor might very well be “happier now,” but that has nothing to do with his ex.

Pitt and Aniston are on good terms, and occasionally get together. The actor even attended his ex-wife’s Christmas party last month. However, spokespeople for both stars confirm they’re not a couple again. Pitt’s kids don’t “approve” or disapprove of their dad’s fictional romance with his ex-wife. This is a non-issue. E! News, a much more reliable entertainment outlet than Life & Style, also recently confirmed that Pitt and Aniston aren’t back together.

Earlier this week, Gossip Cop called out the tabloid for falsely claiming Pitt and Aniston were moving in together. That article also claimed the two were “ring shopping.” Nothing about the scenario was true.

Just two months ago, Gossip Cop busted Life & Style for making up a story about Pitt and Aniston having a baby together. This latest article doesn’t mention anything about the two having a child. The unreliable magazine seems to come up with this nonsense as it goes along.
