A story about Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt going on a "romantic honeymoon" is late and wrong. Gossip Cop can set the record straight for the second time. The former spouses have not reunited, let alone married again, so there is no "honeymoon" in the works.
But New Idea is claiming Aniston and Pitt "recently recommitted to each other in an intimate ceremony," and now "the recently reunited couple are planning on celebrating their renewed commitment with a 'dream honeymoon.'" Picking up these contentions from In Touch, it's alleged the stars are "jetting off on a two-week trip to Italy, starting with a stay at pal George Clooney's villa in Lake Como." A supposed "source" is quoted as saying, "Jen and Brad felt it was only fitting that they kick off their honeymoon there."
And on top of that, "The highest priority on their list right now is starting a family right away," contends the purported tipster. Bizarrely, though, after quoting at length from the In Touch story, New Idea goes on to repeat unrelated allegations about Aniston and Pitt having a "secret Aspen reunion." As Gossip Cop readers may recall, we first busted Star for such lies in January, and then New Idea randomly recycled them in July.
Now the tabloid is bringing them up again, and combining them with these latest contentions about a "romantic honeymoon." This is all just another example of New Idea lazily copying fellow gossip magazines and spreading entirely bogus information. Case in point: In June, the outlet did an article on Aniston and Pitt's "second wedding joy" after In Touch fabricated a cover story about the former spouses getting back together and having a wedding and a baby.
Now this week, In Touch presented a cover story about Aniston and Pitt going on a "honeymoon in Italy," and New Idea is yet again regurgitating the phony claims. Neither publication says just when the alleged commitment ceremony took place, but Aniston has spent the summer in Montreal and Italy filming Murder Mystery, which only wrapped two days ago, as co-star Adam Sandler revealed on Twitter. That makes it impossible for her to have "recently" recommitted to Pitt in an "intimate ceremony" at his L.A. home.
But even regardless of their differing locales, the individual spokespeople for both stars have repeatedly maintained they haven't gotten back together, and around the time she went off to Montreal in June, Aniston's friend Portia de Rossi even confirmed she hadn't seen Pitt. In Touch has built a fictional storyline about Aniston and Pitt reuniting, despite evidence to the contrary, and New Idea keeps running with it. But the actor and actress who aren't a couple aren't going on a honeymoon.
Conclusion: On Wednesday, In Touch peddled a cover story falsely contending Pitt and Aniston are going on a honeymoon. On Thursday, a day after Gossip Cop's solid debunking, New Idea is repeating the proven falsehoods. Of course, New Idea also has a history of manufacturing its own misinformation, such as wrongly claiming nearly two months ago that Aniston was "finally pregnant." Not only did Gossip Cop bust that tall tale in early July, but the passage of time has proven our reporting was correcting. It's even more clear now that neither tabloid can be trusted.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
