Meghan Markle is not caught in a “feud” between Angelina Jolie and Amal Clooney, despite a new made-up report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this untrue report. The claim is provably wrong on several fronts.

According to the often inaccurate New Idea, there’s a “battle brewing between Angelina Jolie and Amal Clooney, with both stars desperate to befriend” Markle. The unreliable tabloid alleges Jolie is “desperately trying to score a meet-up” the new Duchess of Sussex, all in an effort to “outdo” Clooney. Without any proof, the magazine maintains the two-time Oscar winner is “fiercely jealous” that the human rights attorney and her actor husband “scored an invite” to Prince Harry and Markle’s wedding and that she did not.

The publication asserts Jolie has been “trying to meet with the duchess for months and is green with envy over” over Clooney’s friendship with her. A so-called “source” is quoted as saying Jolie is “incredibly jealous of Amal” and was “absolutely gutted that Amal and George were invited to the wedding and not her.” The supposed insider adds that Jolie is “annoyed at getting snubbed” from the recent marriage ceremony.

Of course, there’s no real basis for Jolie to be in a “feud” or have a “battle brewing” with Clooney, since there was no reason for her to have been invited to the royal wedding in the first place. Much was falsely made of the fact that the actress arrived in the UK days before the nuptials, but her presence in England has nothing to do with the royals. Simply, Jolie is in London to shoot Maleficent 2. She had no intention of attending the wedding, nor was she remotely heartbroken that she wasn’t invited to the affair for which she had no connection.

Nor is Jolie “jealous” whatsoever that the Clooneys “scored an invite.” As opposed to Jolie not having anything to do with the new Duchess of Sussex, Amal Clooney and Markle have a friendship. The far more reputable People recently reported that “Meghan and Amal have known each other for a while” and that the human rights attorney, who’s a British national, has been “helping Meghan settle into London life.” Again, Jolie is just in town for a few weeks to shoot her Disney sequel.

Days before the nuptials, Gossip Cop shot down talk that Jolie was in London for the royal wedding, and the same sources we turned to then assure us now the actress is not in any sort of a “feud” with Clooney. And while it’s already abundantly clear that the outlet’s story is made-up, still we reached out to a Jolie rep, who exclusively tells us there’s “no truth” to the tabloid’s tale about a “battle brewing” between the movie star and the human rights lawyer. Admittedly, we’re not entirely surprised by the falsity of the magazine’s latest article.

In the past, Gossip Cop has busted New Idea for publishing a number of fibs about Jolie. For example, we exposed the magazine when it outlandishly claimed Jolie was “caught” in a “hook-up” with Justin Theroux, Jennifer Aniston’s estranged husband. And we nailed the same outlet more recently when it maintained Jolie was “looking for revenge” because Brad Pitt and Aniston had reunited.

We mention those two stories from the past few months because, like the current article, the tabloid contended its information came from a source close to “Ange,” as they call her. But, of course, those claims were provably nothing more than fiction. Much like those reports and a slew of others, there’s also no truth that Jolie and Clooney are caught in a “feud” over Markle.
