Suri Cruise and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt have not become best friends after supposedly being introduced by their moms Katie Holmes and Angelina Jolie, despite a completely made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this phony story.
An article posted on the online version of OK! claims the two 11-year-old girls, both of whom have movie star parents who split, met through their mothers two years ago and have been in touch ever since. A supposed “source” tells the magazine, “Suri and Shiloh are pretty different, but they have a lot in common.” The outlet’s dubious insider further claims that shortly after Jolie and Brad Pitt separated, the actress “reached out to Katie to arrange follow-up ‘playdate’ for the girls.”
The repeatedly discredited outlet goes on to allege that during the girls’ so-called “playdate,” Suri brought along Jamie Foxx’s eight-year-old daughter Annalise to play with Shiloh’s younger siblings Vivienne and Knox, who recently turned nine. “Since then, Suri and Shiloh have become pretty close,” adds the seemingly phony source.
The “insider continues, “Suri’s gone through her own parents’ very public split and she’s been brilliant helping Shiloh get through the change in her family. They’re kind of an oddball pairing because Shiloh’s such a tomboy and Suri’s the total opposite, but Suri’s surrounded by girly girls and she loves hanging out and climbing trees with Shiloh. They’ve really bonded and now talk all the time.”
But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Holmes, who exclusively assures us that Suri and Shiloh “don’t even know each other.” It’s unclear why OK! decided to arbitrarily spark a friendship between two children of celebrities, but there’s simply no truth to the magazine’s account of events.
Oddly enough, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has had to call out the tabloid for fabricating a phony story regarding the social life of both young girls. We recently busted the publication for falsely claiming Shiloh was begging her mom to let her make friends. Gossip Cop also debunked the outlet’s bogus report similarly alleging Holmes doesn’t allow Suri to play with friends. This latest article combining both celebrity kids is equally untrue.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
