Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts are NOT “hooking up,” despite a completely fabricated report about the longtime friends. Gossip Cop can bust the story.

The untrue rumor comes from Celeb Dirty Laundry, which falsely announces in a headline, “Brad Pitt Hooking Up With Julia Roberts: Star Wants To Mother Brad After Divorce.” The accompanying story contends, “There are new reports that Brad Pitt might be hooking up with Julia Roberts, as the actress is looking to mother the actor, especially after all the nasty and very public divorce drama he has gone through with his soon-to-be ex-wife, Angelina Jolie.”

“While Brad’s Hollywood friends such as George Clooney and Matt Damon haven’t offered to help the actor in what can easily be called one of the worst periods of his life, Julia Roberts has stepped up to give Brad the support he desperately needs, if not more,” claims the site, without a single source to back up its assertions. The webloid goes on to mention unsubstantiated allegations that “Julia Roberts is having her own marital crisis” with husband Danny Moder.

The outlet writes, “That’s why it’s not surprising that Brad and Julia are bonding over their separate marriage drama, especially since the actress is looking to ‘mother’ Brad back to health.” And so, CDL asks, “Of course, fans can’t help but ask if Julia Roberts might seize this opportunity to perhaps take her relationship with Brad to the next level? Could there be a possible romance brewing between the two? Could their heartache over their failed marriages bring them even closer together?”

NO. None of that is happening. Here’s what IS going on: Pitt and Roberts both attended an event for the film Moonlight this week. They posed for a photo together, as friends do. Now Celeb Dirty Laundry is using that innocent interaction to falsely claim the two stars are “hooking up.” It is completely made up from the same outlet that only a week ago speculated Rihanna might start dating Pitt. It’s all lies.
