Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt are not trying to prevent Justin Theroux from writing a tell-all book, despite a phony tabloid report. The story is false on every level. Gossip Cop can correct it.

According to New Idea, Theroux is upset over Aniston supposedly getting back together with Pitt, so he’s ready to spill the beans about his marriage to the actress. “The fact she’s back with Brad has cut him pretty deep and really bruised his ego,” an alleged source tells the outlet. “Justin spent much of their marriage feeling like he was this substitute version of her ex, but she’d assure him time and time again that wasn’t the case. Now it turns out he was right, and that hurts him.”

The supposed source goes on to say that Theroux intends to “call Jen out” and reveal “negative” details about her because “he has nothing to lose.” The suspicious tipster adds, “Besides the fact that she’s ignoring him there’s also a business side to it all and he realizes there won’t be many takers if he doesn’t include plenty of juice about his relationship with Jen.”

In addition to spilling dirt on his own marriage to Aniston, Theroux also knows secrets about her marriage to Pitt, and plans to cover that ground as well. “That’s gotten back to Jen, as well as Brad, and they’re both freaking out and trying to stop Justin in his tracks,” adds the seemingly nonexistent insider. “They don’t want to resort to an ugly battle if they can help it, which is why Brad has taken this head on and he’s pleading with Justin to hold off on including passages about Jen or himself.”

As the story goes, Pitt called Theroux and told him his plans for a tell-all are “hurtful and wholly unnecessary, to go so low and dish out secrets he and Jen don’t want told.” The Leftovers star, however, maintains it’s “his right to write this book in any way he wants.”

The tabloid’s bogus story is predicated on the idea that Pitt and Aniston have rekindled a romance, which isn’t the case. Separate spokespeople for both stars have told Gossip Cop countless times that they’re not back together. Reputable outlets such as People magazine have confirmed this as well. Theroux has no reason to write a revenge tell-all. Still, we checked in with an individual in the actor’s camp, who confirms that the magazine’s article is total fiction. There’s no book in the works.

It should also be noted, Aniston and Theroux are on great terms. The actor attended his ex-wife’s Friendsgiving dinner back in November. Just two weeks ago, Theroux wished Aniston a happy birthday on Instagram. The actor shared a black-and-white photo of Aniston triumphantly clenching her fists and shouting. He captioned the image, “… grabbing 2020 and another year just like – Happy birthday B.” As opposed to a scathing tell-all, Theroux is writing sweet Instagram messages to his ex.

Just last month, Gossip Cop busted New Idea for falsely claiming Pitt and Aniston were getting married at the French estate he owns with Angelina Jolie. That hasn’t happened. One week prior, the outlet wrongly reported that Pitt and Aniston were adopting a baby from a Mexican orphanage. They haven’t. Neither of those phony storylines are mentioned in this latest piece.
