HollywoodLife claims to have "exclusive" details about how Brad Pitt is "committed" to having a good relationship with Angelina Jolie for the sake of their kids, but the webloid has no actual insight into the situation. Gossip Cop can expose this made-up story.

The untrustworthy site is pretending to have heard from "a source close to Brad," who allegedly spilled, "The kids are the only motivation for having any sort of relationship with [Jolie]. He takes her calls and is always open to talking with her. Getting back together with her is not something he sees happening."

The outlet's dubious insider goes on to say that when Pitt sees his kids, they spend time at his home because "he wants to protect them and is well aware that taking them out in public is only going to put the spotlight on him and take away from his experience with them." The supposed "source" continues, "He doesn't care what people think as far as his visitation with the kids is concerned and he feels strongly that the less attention on them, the better."

The webloid's alleged insider then goes on to offer "exclusive" tidbits like the actor's children "love coming over and playing with their dad" and he's "happiest" when they're around. "Brad's relationship with Angelina has drastically improved, but he's pretty clear that a reunion is not in the cards," adds the phony source. "Brad is playing it very cool and getting stronger everyday. He's totally rebuilding his independence."

Although many of these quotes may be factual, they didn't come from an actual source close to Pitt. Gossip Cop is assured that no on in the actor's trusted inner circle has ever spoken to HollywoodLife about him. The webloid's "exclusive" scoop is nothing more than educated guesses that could apply to just about any person going through a divorce involving kids. The site is once again making it all up.

Similarly fabricated was the webloid's recent article pretending to know why Pitt and Jolie aren't ready to start dating other people yet. Gossip Cop busted that story, as well as another one purporting to know the location of Pitt and Jolie's "secret rendezvous" spot used for picking up their kids. HollywoodLife's latest so-called "exclusive" is more nonsense.

Our Verdict

Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
