Brad Pitt is taking Jennifer Aniston and his kids on a joint trip to Chateau Miraval, according to a completely fabricated tabloid report. Gossip Cop can bust this story. As reps for the exes have repeatedly confirmed, the former couple is not back together. The notion that they're traveling to France with one another is comical and made-up.
This article, which comes from Woman's Day New Zealand, is based on the false premise that not only have the former spouses reunited, but that Pitt is about to settle his divorce from Angelina Jolie. According to the gossip magazine, the actor wants to "celebrate finally being granted shared custody of his children by introducing them to his ex-wife and on-again love." The outlet claims Pitt was "keeping his newly rekindled romance" with Aniston a "secret to placate Angelina during their divorce battles." But as soon as the "ink hits the paper, he's planning on flying the kids and his ex-wife to Chateau Miraval," contends the publication.
"It's going to be very strange for Brad to be there with Jen and the kids, but it's the perfect place for them all to escape for a while and spend some quality time together," a so-called "family friend" is quoted as saying. The purported pal continues, "The kids adore that house, but they haven't been there since before Brad and Ange broke up. It's going to be an amazing bonding experience for them to spend a week or so together all under the same roof." The tabloid's supposed source even asserts Pitt is "planning to host a joint dinner and cook everyone one of his famous pasta dishes, like he used to in the good old days."
Here's what's true about this story: Pitt and Jolie still own Chateau Miraval and are still producing wine through the French estate. Here's what's false about this story: Everything else. Pitt has no intentions of taking his children and Aniston to the property for a joint vacation because he and his ex are not back together. On top of the individual reps for the pair individually confirming to Gossip Cop on the record that they have not reconciled, People has reported that Pitt and Aniston "haven't seen each other in ages." Therefore, there is no reason for her to be taking a trip with his kids.
Additionally, Gossip Cop already busted Woman's Day this week for its false cover-story about Pitt and Jolie reaching a "truce" in their divorce and being just "weeks" away from finalizing their custody arrangements. Pitt's rep confirmed to us that it was all untrue. Now it's apparent that this tale involving Aniston, which is based on the inaccurate claims that the actor is settling his divorce and has reunited with his former wife, is bogus, too.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
