Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie have not been sneaking off on secret dates for the past few weeks, despite a made-up tabloid report. The magazine claims the actress has been bringing her Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-star to her favorite pubs in London and showing him off to her friends. Gossip Cop has learned the premise is fabricated.
This week's issue of Woman's Day includes a piece about the two stars titled "Margot & Brad's Secret Hook-Up." Citing an anonymous insider, the outlet maintains that Pitt and Robbie are more than just co-stars. "They constantly joke and tease each other with little private in-jokes, and Margot calls him 'B' for short," an alleged insider tells the outlet.
The supposed source adds, "She gushed to her London friends about how supportive Brad has been and how incredible it's been to have him guide her in an industry in which he's been such an iconic actor for so long." The questionable tipster further maintains that Robbie recently took her co-star "on a tour" of her favorite spots to drink in London.
The bogus piece very quickly brushes over the fact that Robbie is happily married to producer Tom Ackerley. The article also fails to mention that Pitt has been sober for more than two years, so it doesn't seem like he'd be eager to go bar-hopping with his co-star. Just last week, Woman's Day claimed Pitt was secretly meeting up with Jennifer Aniston at his beach house after rekindling their romance. It seems the tabloid can't make up its mind about Pitt's relationship status, but both stories are completely untrue.
Back in June, Gossip Cop was exclusively told that Pitt finds rumors linking him to Robbie to be "rude" and "bizarre," especially considering the fact that his interactions with the actress on the set of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood were limited. There's also not a single photo of the two stars visiting any pubs together. If the two A-listers were hitting up bars in London, it's nearly impossible that no one would have spotted them. Pitt and Robbie aren't romantically involved and the notion otherwise is ridiculous.
Also last week, Gossip Cop called out NW for falsely claiming Pitt had confessed his love for Robbie amid her marriage supposedly falling apart. The publication wrongly asserted that the actor was hoping to swoop in once the actress and her husband split. Nothing about the narrative was a reality.
Woman's Day has also been wrong about Pitt's relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio, his other Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-star. The magazine recently claimed the two stars were spending their nights ordering takeout and playing video games, and that DiCaprio was helping Pitt get back in the dating game. That story, like this latest one involving Robbie, was rooted in fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
