Jennifer Aniston is not “leaning on” Brad Pitt after a non-existent “split” from Justin Theroux, despite yet another report attempting to create a love triangle. Gossip Cop can bust this story. Aniston and Theroux remain happily together, and the actress is not looking to her ex-husband for any kind of support.

But according to the cut-and-paste site Celebrity Insider, Aniston and Theroux have been “living separate lives lately, and it could mean there is trouble in paradise.” The webloid asks, “Since sources close to the couple are claiming the marriage is all but over, is Aniston leaning on her ex Brad Pitt to help her through the split?” Naturally, the outlet didn’t come up with these claims on its own. Rather, it’s regurgitating an already-debunked In Touch story that alleged “Aniston and Theroux’s marriage is crumbling, and they have been apart since October.”

Actually, Aniston and Theroux are both in L.A. right now as they gear up for the holidays. But in this alternate tabloid reality, “They have reached a point where the relationship can’t move forward, and sources claim it is only a matter of time before they officially split,” contends the blog. Consequently, alleges the online publication, Aniston is “turning to Pitt for a shoulder to cry on, and he has become an unlikely source of comfort and strength… [She] confided in him about the troubles in her marriage, and he provided the right words that she needed to hear.”

Celebrity Insider concludes by noting that Aniston and Theroux “have not addressed the split rumors.” That’s because the couple knows such “rumors” are untrue and they have no need to personally speak out. Theroux has previously mocked tabloids like In Touch for its false narratives, but he and Aniston have no intention of specifically calling out every made-up story about them. Nor should they have to.

Besides, the actress’ rep already shot down these “split” claims to Gossip Cop last week. Nothing has changed in the days since. The problem is that the same inaccurate information is getting recycled and repackaged, continually breathing new life into the allegations. But since they still have no merit, Gossip Cop will keep busting them.
