A tabloid cover story published exactly one year ago claimed Brad Pitt was moving back in with Angelina Jolie and their six kids. Gossip Cop debunked the untrue premise 365 days ago, and it obviously never panned out. The estranged spouses arenâ€™t back together in any capacity, let alone living together again.
On September 13, 2017, the cover of OK! read, â€śBrad Moves Back In After Angieâ€™s Tearful Apology.â€ť The article said the exes were giving their marriage another shot after months of couples therapy. An alleged insider told the outlet that Pitt surprised the kids by arriving early in the morning and â€śmaking pancakes in the kitchenâ€ť to break the news that the was living with them again. The supposed source added, â€śTheyâ€™re settling in, unpacking Bradâ€™s boxes and moving furniture around.â€ť
Immediately after the cover story hit newsstands, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who told us on the condition of anonymity that it was entirely fabricated. Time has proven that to be the case. As opposed to reconciling, Pitt and Jolie have been engaged in a custody battle over their six kids. Although the situation remains somewhat contentious, itâ€™s been reported that Jolie â€śremains focused on healing her familyâ€ť and â€ścontinues to support the reconciliation of the children with Brad.â€ť The actress herself, however, has no intention of reconciling with her estranged husband.
Unfortunately, OK! refused to drop its phony storyline after we debunked it. In February, the unreliable tabloid published a cover story claiming that Pitt and Jolie were â€ścalling off their divorceâ€ť and renewing their vows. That didnâ€™t happen either. After it became clear that the estranged spouses werenâ€™t reuniting, the magazine finally gave up on its premise, but went on to peddle a new one that was equally false.
This past May, Gossip Cop busted the magazineâ€™s ridiculous cover story about Jennifer Aniston being pregnant with Pittâ€™s baby. That absurd article made no mention of what happened to the actorâ€™s supposed reconciliation with Jolie. How exactly did Pitt go from renewing his vows with his estranged wife to impregnating his ex-wife in a matter of months?
Itâ€™s clear the publication has zero insight into Pitt and Jolieâ€™s divorce, so it instead makes up stories and switches narratives on a whim. Gossip Cop looks back at articles from a year ago to show how the tabloids have little credibility when it comes to reporting celebrity news. OK!â€™s cover story from last year is yet another example.
