Brad Pitt and Sienna Miller have never been romantically involved, but at this time last year, one of the tabloids claimed they were making their relationship "official." Gossip Cop debunked the bogus story when it first emerged. But time has proven that the stars were never an item.
On January 1, 2018, OK! Australia said Pitt and Miller were "getting serious" after months of "causally dating." Only, the two never dated, casually or otherwise. The inaccurate rumor started when the New York Post claimed in April 2017 that the two were "doing some serious flirting" at the Los Angeles premiere of The Lost City Of Z, which he produced and in which she co-starred. Not only did a rep for Pitt assure Gossip Cop there was "nothing to it," but a few days later, the newspaper acknowledged Miller herself called the flirting rumors both "predictable and silly."
Unfortunately, that didn't stop a slew of other tabloids from keeping the narrative going for the next few months. Us Weekly, for example, published a cover story in July 2017 claiming Pitt and Miller were "secretly dating." Shortly afterwards, Life & Style wrongly reported Pitt and Miller were "heating up." There was no evidence to corroborate the romance rumors, which both parties denied. Around the same time, reliable celebrity news outlets such as People magazine looked into the situation and reported Pitt and Miller were not dating.
The romance rumors finally died down around August 2017 when it became clear the stars had little to do with each other. However, OK! Australia decided to kick off 2018 by dredging up the phony premise once again. The magazine quoted an alleged insider as saying, "Brad thinks she's gorgeous" and "she thinks he's gorgeous. They're definitely into each other." The seemingly made-up source added, "Pals say they wouldn't be surprised if this ends in wedding bells."
Now that 365 days have passed since the tabloid's story was published, it's clear there was no truth to it. In fact, E! News published an article last year titled, "The Truth About Brad Pitt's Post-Divorce Dating Life," which included a list of famous women the actor was wrongly said to be dating following his split from Angelina Jolie. One of those women was Miller.
Gossip Cop looks back at stories from a year ago to show which outlets are trustworthy, and which ones aren't. OK! Australia falls into the latter category. In fact, once the magazine dropped its storyline involving Miller, the tabloid published several untrue articles about Pitt being back together with Jennifer Aniston. The tabloid seems to jump from one phony narrative to the next.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
