Brad Pitt is not being “eaten alive by a rare disease,” despite an absurd new report alleging the actor is secretly battling a life-threatening illness. Gossip Cop looked into the situation, and we can exclusively set the record straight.

Many tabloids have been making a needlessly big deal about the actor dropping a few pounds in the wake of his divorce from Angelina Jolie, and now the National Enquirer purports that a “mystery ailment” is responsible for his weight loss. A supposed “source” at the art studio frequented by the actor tells the magazine he’s looking thinner by the day and “disappearing before our eyes.”

The outlet’s questionable source goes on to contend that Pitt is “very weak” and often “moves around like an old man in pain,” adding that his friends believe an infectious disease is the cause of his alleged health woes. But Gossip Cop checked in with a trustworthy source close to the actor, who exclusively assures he’s not sick with a “rare disease” and the magazine’s report is all “lies.”

This latest article is yet another entry in the tabloids’ phony ongoing narrative about Pitt’s well-being. Gossip Cop recently busted the Enquirer’s sister publication, OK!, for also wrongly reporting that Pitt was suffering a health crisis. Shortly before that, we called out Star for its bogus cover story alleging Pitt has an eating disorder.

These fake news stories seem to have been concocted because Pitt looks a bit skinnier as of late, but his thinner frame isn’t at all a cause for concern. Gossip Cop is told the actor is doing well, and all of these reports alleging his health is deteriorating are simply untrue.
