Debunking the week's tabloid stories: August 11, 2017

Gossip Cop Logo Gossip Cop | Slide 1 of 5: In this May 28, 2014 file photo, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt arrive at the world premiere of "Maleficent" in Los Angeles.

Brangelina divorce is off

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce is off, announces Us Weekly on its new cover. The magazine explains that "nearly a year after she filed to end her union with Pitt, Jolie is rethinking her strategy [and] the divorce is on hold."

A source tells the outlet, "The divorce is off. They haven't done anything to move it forward in several months and no one thinks they are ever going to... She's still so in love with him." Jolie's "change of heart coincided with Pitt's own about-face," notes the tipster, who reveals that the actor's "decision to improve himself" by giving up drinking "warmed Jolie."

And with the divorce in "limbo," the publication's insider maintains, "Everyone thinks they are going to get back together. It wouldn't be surprising if they announced that they're calling it off and trying to work things out." But this cover story and its allegations are notably one-sided.

The magazine repeatedly contends Jolie is having second thoughts, but never once says Pitt is also considering a reunion. And Gossip Cop is told he isn't, and the couple is not on the verge of getting "back together." They are still in the midst of getting divorced, we're exclusively assured, although the process has slowed down. Still, a Pitt confidante reiterated to Gossip Cop that he’s definitely not angling for a reconciliation.
