Brad Pitt is not pursuing a romance with Jennifer Lawrence, despite a completely made-up report. The bogus article contends that movie star wants to date the actress to make Angelina Jolie jealous, but there’s no truth to any of it. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.

A story published in this week’s edition of the Australian tabloid Woman’s Day, and subsequently posted online by the unreliable website The Inquisitr, claims Pitt believes that Lawrence fits his criteria for the perfect girlfriend. A so-called “source” says, “Jennifer ‘ticks’ all of Brad’s boxes in all the right ways. She’s gorgeous, the hottest name in Hollywood and seems to like older guys.”

The outlet’s questionable insider further purports that Pitt asked Quentin Tarantino to get him the actress’s phone number following her recent breakup from Darren Aronofsky, and they have been slowly getting to know each other through texts. The alleged source also maintains that Pitt will only date “the type of woman who makes Angelina Jolie jealous,” and Lawrence fits the bill.

“Brad hasn’t dated much since the breakdown of his marriage, so Jen is a very lucky girl to have his undivided attention,” adds the seemingly nonexistent insider. “He can’t wait to get to know her better, and if all goes well, he thinks they could be Hollywood’s next big power couple.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Pitt, who laughed off the tabloid’s report, before exclusively assuring us it’s “not true.” The actor hasn’t been pursuing Lawrence, nor is he on a mission to make his estranged wife jealous. It should also be noted, the 22-year age gap between Lawrence and Aronofsky played a key role in their split, so it’s very unlikely that she’d now want to jump into a relationship with a man who’s almost 30 years older than her.

Additionally, Woman’s Day is the same untrustworthy magazine that Gossip Cop busted earlier this year for wrongly reporting that Pitt was dating Kate Hudson. Perhaps The Inquisitr should try doing some fact-checking before blindly regurgitating another outlet’s false story.
