Jennifer Aniston is not “ecstatic” over Angelina Jolie being “miserable” and hitting “rock bottom” amid her “divorce drama” with Brad Pitt, despite a new claim. Gossip Cop can bust the story. We’ve learned it was made-up.

According to RadarOnline, Aniston is “delighted to see” that Jolie is “suffering so badly” during her increasingly contentious divorce battle with Pitt. A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “She’s privately ecstatic to see Angelina at rock bottom.” The site contends that since Aniston and Pitt’s own divorce, the “Friends” star has been “secretly stewing, waiting for [Pitt and Jolie’s] relationship to implode.”

“She never doubted Angie would self-destruct eventually, even when she was at her most smug and supposedly loved-up with Brad,” claims the blog’s untraceable source, who further says of Jolie, “This is a woman Jen views as pure evil, so is she happy to see her miserable and getting the payback she deserves? You bet she is.” Maintains this alleged tipster, “Jen’s a huge believer in karma and she despises Angie. She’s finding it hard not to smile when the [divorce] comes up.”

It’s unclear when, where, why or how Pitt’s split from Jolie would be “coming up” in Aniston’s life, but the website claims she “clearly still has a soft spot for her first husband, as she has been spending an increasing amount of time with the mega movie star since her own divorce from Justin Theroux.” There is a lot wrong with that assertion. One, there is no “divorce from Justin Theroux.” Neither she nor “The Leftovers” star have filed for divorce. In February, Aniston and Theroux only announced their separation, and nearly six months later, no legal documents have been filed.

Two, she has not been “spending an increasing amount of time” with her ex-husband. People reported months ago that Pitt and Aniston haven’t seen one another “in ages.” More recently, Aniston’s close friend Portia de Rossi confirmed Aniston and Pitt “haven’t seen each other.” That backs up what each of their camps has told Gossip Cop on numerous occasions. In fact, in recent weeks the exes have been roughly 6,000 miles apart. Aniston is in Italy shooting Murder Mystery, while Pitt has been in Los Angeles filming Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Clearly, then, they haven’t been spending any time together at all.

As for the main premise, about Aniston finding glee in Jolie’s war with Pitt because of how hurt she supposedly has been by their relationship, a rep for the star, who is authorized to speak on her behalf, tells Gossip Cop this story is “just more rubbish.” It also reminds Gossip Cop of comments the actress made in 2015. When Aniston spoke with CBS about paparazzi and the gossip media, she likened ongoing stories about herself, Pitt and Jolie to a “soap opera.” Aniston said, “I don’t find it painful, though. I think it’s a narrative that follows you because it’s an interesting headline. It’s more of a media-driven topic.” She added that “everybody” has moved on.

But here is RadarOnline, wanting readers to believe Aniston hasn’t moved on, with a provocative headline that announces, “Jen Aniston ‘Ecstatic’ To See Nemesis Angelina Miserable Amid Brad Divorce Drama.” And aside from being unable to back up its contentions about Aniston beyond citing a single unnamed “insider,” the online publication also has no evidence that Jolie is “miserable” or “suffering” or has hit “rock bottom.” On the contrary, Jolie was photographed smiling widely as she and her kids left a grocery store in L.A. on Sunday. This article is filled with inaccuracies throughout.
