Brad Pitt did not “reunite” with Jennifer Aniston for Christmas in Aspen after supposedly being “banned” by Angelina Jolie from being with his family. This false narrative has been making the rounds the last few days, and now Gossip Cop can set the record straight one again.

The International Business Times asserts Jolie is “not allowing” Pitt to spend the holidays with their children. That site claims the allegation is based on a story from Life & Style, but it was actually In Touch that Gossip Cop busted last week for contending Pitt was “begging” Jolie to let him see the kids over Christmas. The tabloid cited a supposed source as saying, “Angie’s in the driver’s seat when it comes to getting the children for the holidays and she’s taking advantage of that,” and that quote is now regurgitated in the IBTimes article.

From there, the outlet goes on to reference the Australian gossip magazine NW, which made-up a story about Pitt and Aniston having a holiday reunion in Aspen. “According to the tabloid, Pitt has been ‘pretty depressed’ about spending the holiday alone. That’s when ‘Jen swooped in with her Christmas miracle,’ and invited him to spend the holiday at Aspen,” claims the online publication, which also brings up “rumors” about Aniston splitting from Justin Theroux.

It is only at the very end, in the last sentence, that the IBTimes notes, “While these claims are sure to stun, Gossip Cop debunks the Brad-Jennifer reunion story to clarify that neither are the former couple meeting nor are Justin and Jennifer separating.” Why didn’t the site say that from the get-go? Why did it instead focus its article on the untrue claims? Apparently luring in readers was more important than honest truth-telling.

And, as noted above, Gossip Cop didn’t just debunk the “Brad-Jenner reunion story.” We also already shot down the claims about Jolie “banning” Pitt from seeing their children over the holidays. Post-separation, the Jolie-Pitt kids have different lives now, but those lives include regularly seeing their father. The International Business Times chose to be late and wrong when it could’ve been timely and accurate. It’s inexcusable.
