Jennifer Aniston is not telling friends that she and Brad Pitt are “giving it another shot,” despite a totally made-up tabloid report. The ex-spouses aren’t rekindling their romance. Gossip Cop can correct the claim otherwise.
An article in the latest issue of OK! Australia says the former spouses have spent the past several months getting to know each other again, and now believe they can make their relationship work this time around. An alleged insider tells the magazine that Aniston recently decided “to come clean to her inner circle” about all the time she’s supposedly been spending with Pitt.
The anonymous source says Aniston’s friends are concerned about the situation given that Pitt had left her for Angelina Jolie, but the Friends star “has assured everyone that Brad’s a different guy now.” The actress is also supposedly telling her pals that Pitt “turned his life around and seems to be the man she first fell in love with all those years ago.”
From there, the unknown tipster says Pitt recently “sat her down and confessed that he regrets how everything ended between them,” and promised never to hurt her again “if she gave him another chance.” The seemingly phony source adds, “She cried. For the first time in years, she was looking at the Brad she remembered, not the one Angelina seems to parade around like a trophy. They haven’t been apart since.”
Not a single aspect of the tabloid’s story is accurate. Separate spokespeople for both Pitt and Aniston have stressed countless time that they’re not back together. Reps for both stars are once again going on the record to refute this latest take on the subject. As Entertainment Tonight accurately reported, Aniston “continues to say in touch” with Pitt and the two “occasionally talk.” The ex-spouses are on friendly terms but no romance has been rekindled. There’s also no indication they’ve seen each other in person since Pitt attended his ex-wife’s 50th birthday party in February.
It should be noted, this bogus story is very similar to one that was featured in the American edition of OK! just last week. The magazine falsely claimed things were getting “very serious” between Pitt and Aniston after supposedly rekindling their romance. Shortly after that, the outlet wrongly reported that Pitt had introduced Aniston to his kids. Gossip Cop debunked both ridiculous reports. The narrative remains untrue despite being recycled by the tabloid’s Australian counterpart.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
