Brad Pitt did not hit on Katy Perry at a party in Los Angeles, despite a made-up tabloid report. Although the two stars did attend the same event last month, there was nothing flirtatious about their interaction. Gossip Cop can set the record straight.

“Brad’s Hot For Katy!” reads a headline in the latest issue of NW. The movie star and the singer both went to a party in Beverly Hills last month honoring renowned architect Frank Gehry. During the event, both stars posed in the same photo alongside Gehry, and the picture later made the rounds online. The image of Pitt and Perry presumably inspired the tabloid to create a fake narrative about them “bonding big-time.”

“Brad was stoked to see Katy,” a supposed source tells the magazine. “They’ve crossed paths a number of times this year, including at Jen Aniston’s 50th birthday back in February.” The supposed source adds, “It was clear that he and Katy were bouncing off one another. They were chatting for ages.”

The questionable tipster goes on to say that Pitt and Perry were “serenaded by a violinist” at one point during the party, prompting the actor to “put his arm around Katy as they listened to the music.” The seemingly phony source notes that the singer is engaged to Orlando Bloom, but still contends, “I doubt she was upset that Brad Pitt of all people wanted to spend time with her.”

The magazine’s account of events simply never occurred. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Pitt, who wasn’t able to speak on the record, but tells us he would never hit on a woman who’s happily engaged. We’re assured the actor wasn’t flirting with Perry at the event. The two simply posed in a photo alongside the night’s honoree. A rep for Pitt also acknowledges that the story is ridiculous.

NW is the same unreliable outlet that Gossip Cop called out earlier this year for publishing multiple articles about Pitt dating Charlize Theron. The tabloid created a whole saga out of the imaginary scenario, even alleging Angelina Jolie was having a “breakdown” over it. In reality, Pitt and Theron were never an item, as the actress herself later confirmed.

In January, Gossip Cop busted the publication for falsely claiming Pitt was in a secret romance with Julia Roberts. Only, the actress is happily married to husband Danny Moder and will celebrate her 17th wedding anniversary this month. It’s fairly evident that the magazine concocts fake stories about the actor’s love life.

It should be noted, People magazine recently reported that Pitt is “more focused on being a dad than on dating.” The reputable outlet noted that the actor is mostly concerned with work and his kids at this time. Pitt simply isn’t going around hitting on engaged women at parties.
