A story alleging Courteney Cox is "urging" Jennifer Aniston "not to reunite with Brad Pitt" was made-up. Gossip Cop can bust the report. It is both manufactured and untrue.

According to HollywoodLife, "Jen and Brad have been talking regularly ever since her split" from Justin Theroux. The website is now claiming to have "exclusive details" on how that's sparked concerned in Cox. The blog quotes a seemingly fictitious "source," who contends, "Courteney immediately reached out to Jennifer urging her to leave Brad in the past after hearing rumors that Jen may be rekindling things with her ex." Among the many issues with this claim is that no real person would switch from "Jennifer" to "Jen" in the course of a single sentence.

More problematic is the notion that Cox would be swayed to take action "after hearing rumors" about Pitt and Aniston possibly "rekindling things." The "Friends" co-stars have been best friends for decades. Cox doesn't rely on the gossip media to find out what is or isn't going on in Aniston's life. The tabloid rumor mill is not going to prompt her to "reach out" to someone whom she already speaks with all the time.

Furthermore, the assertion that Pitt and Aniston have been "talking regularly" since she separated from Theroux is entirely false. First off, it was known more than a year ago that Aniston and Pitt were in touch, albeit casually and only occasionally. More recently, the reputable People magazine reported just last month that Aniston and Pitt haven't seen one another in "ages" and have no interest in reuniting romantically. Of course, Cox, being among Aniston's closest friends, would already know that. She needn't get her updates from gossip outlets.

Additionally, amid the site's almost assuredly invented insider claiming that Cox is "warning" Aniston "she better not jump back in bed" with her ex-husband, it's worth noting Cox and Pitt have remained friendly over the years. She would not be having a "source" close to her needlessly bash him. And this piece is indeed needless. Cox already knows Aniston isn't contemplating reconciling, so the allegations here about issuing a "warning" are illogical and implausible.

But it's quite obvious why HollywoodLies, as the online publication is nicknamed, concocted them. Cox's purported reaction was manufactured so the site could lure readers by pretending to have insight on Aniston and Pitt's dynamic, which remains a hot topic more than a decade after their divorce. That's also why a few days ago, the website similarly made-up Pitt's mom's reaction to him and Aniston "talking again," describing her as "so happy." Again, as noted above, the former spouses aren't suddenly "talking again."

They've been in communication for some time now, and Pitt's mother would know that, so it makes little sense for her to be reacting to what is a provably false premise. HollywoodLies has a habit of giving fans an alternate reality, instead of what truthfully is or isn't going on. A careful examination of its claims, as shown here, make it abundantly clear that the outlet either willfully ignores readily-available facts or really just isn't very knowledgeable at all.
