Brad Pitt does not have “dynamite” tapes that could “embarrass” Angelina Jolie in her bid for sole custody of the couple’s six children, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim, which was made in a British tabloid and then spread by various other outlets without even fact-checking the story. We’re told it’s all not true.

According to The Sun, Pitt has secretly recorded “tapes that could prove highly embarrassing” for Jolie. The tabloid further alleges the supposed tapes “could dent Angelina’s bid to win primary custody of their six kids.” The paper then quotes a so-called “insider” as saying, “Audio tapes exist of Angelina that would be absolutely dynamite against her if they were to be made public.” “Nobody wants to play dirty like that,” continues to same highly suspect source, adding, “It’s not good for the children, but Angelina and her team seem absolutely hell-bent on trying to discredit Brad in order to stop him getting joint custody.”

So, what are on these alleged “recordings” that would “embarrass” Jolie? And how exactly are the tapes “absolutely dynamite against her”? Curiously, the tabloid lobs the rumor about the existence of explosive recordings, but seemingly knows nothing about their contents nor offers how Pitt would leverage them.

A skeptic might suspect the British newspaper of manufacturing these claims. Or perhaps the paper relied on a highly unreliable “insider.” Irrespective of how the tabloid came to its story, it clearly was not fact-checked. And equally culpable are the slew of media outlets that simply regurgitated this misinformation.

Regardless, Gossip Cop looked into The Sun’s claims, and they are not true. An impeccable Pitt insider has “no idea where this came from,” and exclusively assures us that it was “certainly not from a legitimate Brad source.” Remember, this is same tabloid Gossip Cop busted when it published an untrue article about Johnny Depp consoling Jolie after she filed divorce from Pitt. That story was a fabrication, and so is the claim that Pitt plans to unleash “dynamite” secret recordings of Jolie.
