Brad Pitt did not confess to Margot Robbie that he's in love with her, despite a ridiculous tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the bogus story. It never happened.
According to NW, Robbie's marriage to Tom Ackerley is falling apart, which is the reason he didn't attend the Los Angeles premiere of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood last week. "She seemed incredibly lonely and in the moments where she wasn't being kept busy, she looked as if she may burst into tears," an alleged source tells the outlet.
The supposed insider further contends Robbie and her husband have been arguing over her friendship with Pitt, but it's only pushed her further into her co-star's arms. "Brad's been incredibly supportive and has been helping Margot through with words of advice, having been through two marriages himself," adds the suspicious tipster. "He tries to lift her spirits whenever he can and he's clearly hoping that her marriage struggles will open a door."
The seemingly phony source goes on to assert Pitt let his feelings for Robbie be known at the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood premiere, where he "made it clear how beautiful and talented he thinks she is." The questionable insider concludes, "He is secretly gunning for Margot's feelings to develop from platonic to romantic, and he hopes that if the marriage deteriorates any further, she'll realize Brad's the man she's meant to be with."
The tabloid's report is a total work of fiction. For starters, Robbie and Ackerley aren't having marriage problems. The actress's husband simply had a scheduling conflict that prevented him from attending the premiere of her new movie. Additionally, the spouses are producing partners who are working together on a number of projects, including Robbie's upcoming Barbie movie.
Meanwhile, this would hardly be the first time NW has attempted to create a nonexistent romance between Pitt and his co-star. Back in May, Gossip Cop busted the outlet for falsely claiming Pitt was fighting with Leonardo DiCaprio to win Robbie's affection. There's no love triangle between the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood stars.
Shortly before that, the outlet made up a story about Pitt and Robbie becoming the next Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone by teaming up on a bunch of movies together. The premise was fabricated. The co-stars currently don't have another film in the works, let alone several more.
And back in March 2018, when Robbie was still in talks for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the tabloid wrongly reported Pitt had hit on the actress at an Oscar party. The magazine has been peddling fiction about the two stars since well before they officially started working together. Pitt's rep, who's qualified to speak on his behalf, has told us countless times that his relationship with Robbie is friendly and professional. The actor's spokesperson confirms that this latest take on the subject is more nonsense.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
