Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are not “headed for [a] divorce because of Brad Pitt,” despite a made-up report that combined a couple of false rumors. Gossip Cop can again correct these unfounded claims. We’re told there’s no truth to any of it.

The latest outlet to reheat these fabrications is The Hollywood Gossip, a site not known for its original reporting, fact-checking, or sources within the entertainment industry. The cut-and-post blog first notes that while Pitt is “a single man,” his ex-wife is “not single” because she’s married to Theroux. But rather than debunking this false narrative of Aniston possibly leaving her husband for Pitt, the website instead cites Life & Style, which asserts the spouses have “spent most of the past year apart.”

Still relying on that equally bad tabloid, THG relates how Aniston and Theroux celebrated New Year’s together in Mexico, but brought “friends along to make the situation less awkward.” The blog even quotes the gossip magazine’s alleged “source” as contending that if Theroux and Aniston went on vacation by themselves, “They would’ve been dealing with some uncomfortable conversations.” The two have “come to terms with the fact that their marriage is coming to an end,” add the website.

To tie its 100 percent fabricated narrative together, the blog maintains, “This couldn’t come at a worse time, as Aniston has reportedly fallen back under Pitt’s spell in recent months.” In an effort to back up its premise, THG next relies on In Touch, which has a so-called “friend” quoted as saying, “Brad and Jen have bonded like never before… helping each other through their respective troubles.”

At the end of its slapped together article, based on previously debunked stories from two untrustworthy tabloids, THG expresses, “There’s a possibility this is really happening.” No, there is not. It’s just a couple of phony premises weaved together. But the website wouldn’t know that because it seemingly doesn’t really have insiders, and there’s no mention about having fact-checked any of the claims with sources or reps in its latest.

Unlike THG, which often just rips off other outlets without actually reporting or even properly crediting them, Gossip Cop vigorously investigates every story. Several sources close to the celebrities mentioned laughed off the outrageous claims. While Pitt and Aniston occasionally text, the site’s contention that she has “fallen back under [his] spell” is simply a lie.

A rep for Pitt tells Gossip Cop the scenario about him and Aniston rekindling is “completely untrue,” while a spokesman for Aniston called the article “made-up.” Additionally, a mutual friend of ours and Aniston and Theroux says they vacation in Mexico with friends because they all like it there and it’s not far from Los Angeles, not because there are marital problems and they’re looking to “make the situation less awkward.” An Aniston insider swears up and down there’s “absolutely “no truth” to THG’s story.
