Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt are not having "secret late-night meetings" thanks to George Clooney, despite a false report that we already corrected. Unfortunately, this phony narrative is now being spread online. Gossip Cop can once again debunk this old and fake news.
On Wednesday, Gossip Cop called out Star for publishing a bogus cover story alleging that Pitt and Aniston were caught kissing and "back on" as a couple. According to the unreliable outlet, Clooney was the one who encouraged his Ocean's Eleven co-star to reunite with the actress. Reps for both Clooney and Pitt assured us the story was fabricated, but that hasn't stopped HollywoodLife from regurgitating it.
"Is George Clooney the ultimate matchmaker?" asks the untrustworthy blog, which goes on to echo all of the false claims made up by Star. One of those claims is that Clooney hired a driver to bring him and Pitt to Aniston's house "for a nightcap" following a pre-Oscar party. As the story goes, Clooney dropped off his friend without going inside once they arrived at the actress's home. Of course, none of this occurred.
After spreading this false narrative, HollywoodLies then reverses course and alleges to have "exclusively" learned from a "source" that the story isn't true. However, even if the untrustworthy site had actually spoken to an insider, Gossip Cop already debunked this story and Clooney and Pitt's reps also dismissed the claims, so there's nothing "exclusive" about this denial. Regardless, we've been repeatedly assured by our Aniston and Pitt contacts that no one close to any of the stars involved in this story has divulged information to the blog.
As Gossip Cop has also noted, Pitt and Aniston haven't seen each other in quite some time and a reunion between the two is very unlikely. Unfortunately, the blog constantly picks up tabloids stories about the ex-spouses without bothering to do any fact-checking. After Gossip Cop busted In Touch in January for falsely claiming that Aniston had met Pitt's children, the website reiterated the false claims anyway.
It should also be noted, New Idea started the bogus storyline about Clooney getting Pitt and Aniston back together earlier this month. This week, Star took the narrative even further, and sites such as HollywoodLies are now spreading it. As Gossip Cop has always maintained, this ongoing saga is complete fiction. Remember, Aniston warned that the tabloids would come up with a "fictional narrative" when she and Justin Theroux announced their split last month. That's exactly what's going on now.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
