Brad Pitt did not ask Jennifer Aniston to marry him again after his split from Angelina Jolie, despite a report that’s both late and wrong. Gossip Cop can bust this false narrative for the second time.

As Gossip Cop reported, the new issue of In Touch came out on Wednesday with a cover blaring, “Brad Stuns Jen: Marry Me Again!” It was a completely fabricated story that merely continued the made-up saga the tabloid has been pushing about the exes for nearly a year. Gossip Cop busted the claims within hours of the edition hitting newsstands, with reps on both sides confirming that no, Pitt was not asking Aniston to marry him again.

But now on Thursday, The Inquisitr has picked up the misinformation and is spreading it online. Citing the gossip magazine, the site asserts, “Brad and Jennifer reconnected after his split with Angelina and he is reportedly leaning on her, while she is reportedly opening about her own marital issues with her writer-director husband Justin [Theroux].” The blog goes on to contend, “An unverified source revealed to the magazine that Brad opened up about his feelings to ‘Friends’ TV series startled [sic] and even revealed his intentions of marrying her again.”

Not only does that last sentence not make sense, but if the outlet is admitting this is an “unverified source,” one has to wonder why it is regurgitating the claims in the first place. The publication nevertheless keeps repeating the magazine’s allegations, and goes on to conclude, “It should be noted that Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and Jennifer Aniston’s personal lives have created several rumors in the past. As of this writing, Brad, Angelina, and Jennifer’s representatives have not commented on the marriage claims.”

That’s not true. Both Aniston and Pitt’s reps gave on-the-record comments to Gossip Cop one day before The Inquistir’s post. A simple Google search would’ve brought up the debunking. But since the site apparently missed it, we’ll reiterate the official responses here. Pitt’s rep exclusively told Gossip Cop the cover story and its marriage proposal claim were “completely untrue.” And Aniston’s spokesperson confirmed the same to us, and wondered why anyone would believe such “made-up stories.” It’s a good question.
