Jennifer Aniston did not invite Angelina Jolie to sit down for a "secret dinner," despite a false tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the claim. We're told it's fabricated.
According to In Touch, Aniston believes it's finally time for her and Jolie to resolve the past now that they're both going through their respective divorces from Justin Theroux and Brad Pitt. "Jen wants a fresh start on all fronts," a so-called "source" tells the magazine. "She doesn't want any baggage from the past, including what went down with Brad and Angelina."
As the story goes, Aniston worked up the nerve to ask Jolie out to dinner, but the actress turned down the invite. "When Jen asked why, Angelina said she didn't owe her an apology," says the alleged insider. "The whole idea to get together for dinner turned into a disaster."
The outlet's seemingly phony tipster goes on to speculate that Jolie rejected the dinner offer because Aniston and Pitt have supposedly gotten close again. "It's gotten back to her that Brad and Jen are in each other's lives," says the questionable source. "She's furious about it." The "insider" further theorizes that Jolie feared Aniston would have the upper hand if their conversation were to take a turn for the worse.
Aniston was left humiliated after Jolie snubbed her, according to the alleged source, who adds, "If she holds on to her anger toward Angelina, Brad may see her as petty. So Jen was trying to be an adult, hoping Angelina would agree." A supposed "friend" of Aniston's then tells the tabloid it's for the best that she and Jolie didn't meet, noting, "There would have been fireworks, that's for sure."
This entire narrative is made-up. For starters, Aniston and Pitt haven't reunited. Although it's true Pitt and Aniston have exchanged friendly texts on occasions, they haven't seen each other in a very long time and have no plans to do so in the near future, as People has reported. Additionally, Pitt and Jolie are currently on good terms and have been cordially negotiating their divorce settlement. Simply put, Jolie isn't "furious" with her estranged husband over a nonexistent reunion with Aniston.
Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us on the condition of anonymity that Aniston never asked Jolie to meet her for a "secret dinner." The tabloid's cover story is nothing but lies. Remember, In Touch is the same unreliable publication that falsely claimed Aniston and Jolie had a "showdown" at this year's Golden Globes. This latest article in the ongoing saga is more fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
