Brad Pitt’s Mom Has ‘Showdown’ With Angelina Jolie?
Did Brad Pitt’s mom, Jane, really have a “face-to-face showdown” with Angelina Jolie? That’s what one of the tabloids is alleging. Gossip Cop can set the record straight.
According to Woman’s Day, Pitt’s mother is fed up with Jolie’s “constant public slamming” of her son, and finally decided to do something about it. An alleged source tells the magazine that Jane flew to Los Angeles over Thanksgiving to confront the actress. “She told Angelina how upsetting it’s been watching her continually twisting the knife and publicly making digs at her son three long years after their split.”
The supposed source continues, “She also told Ange how Brad had kept a dignified silence through everything despite her continuing to move goalposts in their divorce and custody battle, and her continued efforts to keep the kids away from him.” From there, the unknown tipster says Jane “dropped a bombshell” by warning Jolie “she would have no qualms about doing her own tell-all” about the divorce, “including the furious messages Ange sent Brad and the threats she made to him.”
The seemingly phony source goes on to say that Jolie was “visibly shaken” by the end of the conversation, which supposedly went down without Pitt’s knowledge. “Knowing how mild-mannered Jane normally is, she couldn’t help but take her seriously,” adds the supposed insider.
The tabloid’s story is pure fiction. For starters, there’s no indication that Pitt’s mom traveled to Los Angeles over Thanksgiving. The details of the magazine’s article are also very sketchy. It’s never explained where this “showdown” between Jane and Jolie occurred. The “tell-all” aspect isn’t fleshed out either. How exactly does Pitt’s mom plan on spilling dirt about her son’s estranged wife?
Meanwhile, this idea that Jolie has been continuously bashing Pitt isn’t even accurate. The outlet doesn’t provide any examples of how the actress has publicly slammed her ex. The closest Jolie has come to taking a dig at Pitt was in her Harper’s Bazaar cover story last month. The actress noted that she’d love to move abroad with her kids, but had to stay in Los Angeles “where their father chooses to live.” That’s hardly a major attack.
It’s reasonable to believe that Pitt’s mom is frustrated with how Jolie is handling the divorce. Custody negotiation have been going on for quite some time, and neither party has reached an official settlement. However, multiple sources tell Gossip Cop that Jane never confronted Jolie. The scenario is made up.
Additionally, this narrative isn’t original. Back in December 2018, Gossip Cop busted RadarOnline for falsely claiming Pitt’s mom planned to confront Jolie. It didn’t happen last year either. Prior to that, another tabloid made up a story about Pitt’s mom pushing him to “stand up” to Jolie. Sensing a theme here? This latest take on the subject is more nonsense.
What Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Said About Each Other 2019
It’s been a busy year for Brad Pitt.
The actor made a strong showing at the box office, with leading roles in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and the sci-fi thriller “Ad Astra.”
But the Hollywood heartthrob’s most challenging part of the year wasn’t stuntman or astronaut. Off screen, Pitt grappled with his role as Angelina Jolie’s ex-husband.
Brangelina’s done, but the former married stars and parents to six children still had plenty to sort through this year.
For Brad Pitt’s birthday (and to aid the delicate mending process), check out all the times Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie talked about each other in 2019.
Brad said he ‘was running to avoid tough feelings’ when discussing past drinking and his divorce
Brad’s been doing some soul searching in recent months. Back in September, the actor discussed his difficult divorce and past drinking. “What I realized is that I was running to avoid tough feelings, painful feelings,” Pitt said. “I just didn’t know how to deal with them. Anything I found that I used for escape. Those kinds of em… those kinds of difficult feelings, I don’t know how better to describe it. It can be anything, drugs, booze, Netflix, snacks. Anything. I don’t want at this point to be running from anything.”
Angelina said she was ‘feeling broken’ before playing Maleficent
Angelina’s been doing some soul searching of her own. Angelina didn’t name Pitt by name, but the subtext was clear when Angelina said she was “feeling broken” before agree to take on the role of Maleficent again. “It was a tough time,” she said in October. “I’d been coming off a few years of difficulty, and I was not feeling very strong. In fact, I was feeling pretty broken. It took me a moment to feel the strength of [Maleficent] again.” Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in 2016.
They couldn’t agree who gets the French winery they own together
Even as recently as October, the former couple was still hammering out details of their multi-million dollar divorce. One particular sticking point: who gets the French château and winery they bought together in 2011.
Angelina said Brad is preventing her and the kids from living abroad
Sometimes the divorce disagreements can take on a global magnitude. In November, Angelina spoke candidly about her high-profile divorce from Brad, saying that she wishes to live overseas but is unable because the distance between the kids and their father would not be ideal. “I would love to live abroad and will do so as soon as my children are 18,” she said. “Right now I’m having to base where their father chooses to live.”
Still-battling exes Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are locked in a tug of love over daughter Shiloh!
A source told The National ENQUIRER that Brad, 56, is insisting it’s his turn to spend the holidays with Shiloh — but Angie, 44, refuses to allow it!
“Brad is furious with Angelina for blocking his attempts to see Shiloh,” spilled an insider. “They agreed, long ago, that he’d at least get to hang with Shiloh over the holidays. Brad says even Ange agreed it was his turn this time. But once again she’s pulled the rug out from under him, saying it’d be unsettling for the rest of the family.”

The Fury stud is closest with Shiloh, 13, although he’s on good terms with her siblings, Pax, 16, Zahara, 14, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 11. Eldest son Maddox, 18, has cut ties with Brad and is now in college in South Korea.
“Brad and Shiloh speak every day over FaceTime and they’ve been counting down the days until Christmas, so this has hit both of them hard,” the insider added.
“Angie’s told Shiloh that it’s not appropriate to be apart from the other kids and they’ll either be in Europe as a family, or at their home in L.A.
OUCH! Hollywood Hates Angelina Jolie!
“She’s reassured Shi that she’ll get to spend some time with her dad, but Shiloh’s heartbroken it won’t be the extended period she was promised.”
Insiders said Brad intends to introduce Shiloh to his closest friends, including ex-wife Jennifer Aniston and his rumored new squeeze, actress and artist Alia Shawkat, 30, who’s bisexual.
“Brad’s romance with Alia has opened his eyes to a whole new way of thinking,” dished a source.

“She’s been a breath of fresh air in educating him and broadening his horizons. He has someone who shares his passion for arts and culture.
“But it’s much more than that. Thanks to Alia’s tolerant outlook, Brad’s come to appreciate how gender and sexuality are fluid in today’s world, and there’s no sense in labels or intolerance of any kind.”

Truth About Brad Pitt Shunning Angelina Jolie’s Holiday Plans With Their Kids
Brad Pitt is reportedly looking forward to celebrating the holidays with his three biological children, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.
Hollywood Life claimed that the “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” star is busy gearing up for the awards season so he’s looking forward to having a relaxing celebration with his kids in Los Angeles.
“He will make it personal as he, like all greats dads, cherish moments like this — and this will be no different. He just wants them to be happy this holiday season and he will be happy spending time with them. He is looking forward to a great normal holiday with no drama,” an unnamed source said.
The source went on to say that Angelina Jolie wanted to take all six of her children on a lavish vacation, but she was forced to give way to Pitt’s request to Christmas at his house in LA.
Unfortunately, Pitt won’t get to celebrate the occasion with three of his older children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara. A source told Us Weekly a few weeks ago that Jolie has been trying to bridge the gap between her ex-husband and Maddox but to no avail.
Meanwhile, Woman’s Day also claimed that Pitt will be celebrating Christmas with his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston.
rad and Jen are going all-out to make this Christmas their best yet, and have loads of surprised organized for the kids. Jen’s been busily decorating Brad’s Los Feliz house with the most stunning display to make it feel as warm as possible,” an unnamed source told the tabloid.
But while Pitt celebrating Christmas with his three younger children has already been confirmed, there is still no confirmation regarding him spending the holidays with his ex-wife. As such, it would be best to take this claim with a grain of salt.
It is also unlikely for Pitt and Aniston to reunite on Christmas Day because they have been divorced since 2005.
And it is even more unlikely for Pitt to snub Jolie’s holiday plans with their children. What’s more possible is that the ex-couple agreed on how they will celebrate the occasion separately.
