Brad Pitt’s relationship with his six kids is frequently written about in the tabloids. Much of it, however, has not been the truth. Gossip Cop has debunked several false stories surrounding Pitt and his children. Here are a few wrong rumors.

Last month, Gossip Cop busted Woman’s Day for wrongly contending Pitt was battling with Angelina Jolie over their 12-year-old daughter Shiloh dressing in boys’ clothing. The tabloid alleged the actor was having a difficult time with his daughter’s wardrobe choices. The article was based on claims from an anonymous and seemingly fictitious source, but Pitt’s own spokesperson told us on the record there was zero truth to it. The movie star, who appears to be fairly liberal-leaning, doesn’t have an issue with how or what Shiloh wears.

Back in January, Gossip Cop called out NW for making up a ridiculous report about Jolie warning Pitt not to bring Charlize Theron around their six kids. The magazine maintained that Jolie would get her lawyers involved if Theron went anywhere near her children. The article was predicated on the inaccurate notion that Pitt was dating the Long Shot star, but the two have never been in a relationship. Pitt’s own rep has said this on the record many times, while Theron herself confirmed in a recent interview that she’s been single for several years. Simply put, Pitt was never warned not to introduce his kids to a woman he wasn’t dating.

Last year, Gossip Cop corrected In Touch when it published a wholly untrue cover story that insisted Jennifer Aniston met Brad Pitt’s kids. In that work of fiction, the tabloid maintained Aniston was introduced to the actor’s children as they were playing at his home, where she supposedly stopped by one day. The outlet even outrageous claimed through one of its phony sources that Aniston told Pitt’s kids “what a pleasure it was to meet them and extended an invite to them to come over and visit her some time.” A rep for Pitt exclusively guaranteed us the entire tale was “100 percent false.” Worse, if possible, is that the magazine photoshopped pictures to make it appear Aniston was embracing the actor’s son Knox.

Days after that manufactured report, Woman’s Day concocted yet another bogus story about how Aniston was going to bond with Pitt’s kids on a family vacation to his French estate, Chateau Miraval. The outlet asserted that once the actor and Jolie settled their custody battle, the trip would be the “perfect place” for Aniston to spend “quality time” with his kids and get to know them better. But as spokespersons for both Aniston and Pitt told Gossip Cop at the time, the exes never “rekindled,” and there was no chance the actor was going to take a family trip to France with the former “Friends” star and his kids.

And earlier this year, Gossip Cop shot down another made-up cover story by Star that untruthfully stated Pitt and Jolie’s daughter Shiloh wanted to live with her grandparents in Missouri. According to that tale, the youngster wanted to move in with Pitt’s folks because she was tired of the drama of her own parents’ divorce. An unidentifiable “source” alleged Shiloh was “desperate for a change of scene,” and being with her grandmother and grandfather in the Midwest was the perfect “means of escape” for her. Much like the aforementioned other articles, that one was a lie, too. Pitt’s rep told us the magazine’s premise was fabricated.
