Angelina Jolie’s impending divorce with Brad Pitt has caused a lot of backlash against both her and Pitt. Perhaps the worst part about it all is that tabloids keep claiming that Jolie is on drugs again. The latest claim is by Radar Online.
“Angelina Drug Bombshell EXPLODES after moving on from Brad Pitt,” reads a headline on their site, which pretty much repeats the rumors from last week’s National Enquirer story. The commenters after the article insult Brad Pitt’s ex wife.
“Those pictures are old and the Enquirer lies BUT it would not shock me at all if she were using again given her physical deterioration. Given her past, if anyone were going to take random drug tests, it should be her not Brad,” says commenter “Amy.”
“Shame on her for using her kids like she’s doing. If she were a true loving parent, she wouldn’t have pulled this stunt. She just thought she’d get full custody and drag those poor kids all over the world until they were old enough to leave on their own. Yeah, she’s done drugs. She’s admitted it,” says another commenter.
However, just as Gossip Cop did last week, they once again shot down the drug rumors.
“Angelina Jolie is not using drugs in the wake of filing for divorce, despite a report that’s both late and wrong. Gossip Cop can again correct the claim.”
The drug rumors all started last week. Gossip Cop summarized the National Enquirer’s explosive cover story.
“The new cover of the National Enquirer exclaims, ‘Real Reason Behind Divorce! Angelina Back On Drugs! & Back With Gay Ex!’ The front of the issue further blares that Jolie was busted with [her] lesbian lover. It also tries to pass off a years-old photo of the actress looking poorly [as if she’s on drugs] as a new, recent snapshot.”
The article further added that frightened friends allegedly believe the lesbian hookup will send Angie going back to her former life as a drug addict. However, even then, Gossip Cop assured their readers that the story is completely fabricated.
“Angelina Jolie is NOT ‘back on drugs,’ nor is she ‘back with [her] gay ex,’ despite a new tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can bust the outrageous claims,” says an angry Shari Weiss, adding that Jolie is absolutely not using drugs and never would have been given temporary custody of the kids if she was.

Meanwhile, according to the Huffington Post, Angelina let Brad see the kids for the first time since their split.
“After nearly three weeks of separation, Brad Pitt has finally reunited with some of his children, multiple news outlets reported Thursday. This is reportedly the first time the 52-year-old actor has seen any of them since wife Angelina Jolie filed for divorce in September.”
The article adds that Pitt was able to see his children on Saturday, Oct. 8, under the supervision of a therapist. This meeting was recommended by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).
Meanwhile, according to the Daily Mail, Angelina Jolie’s lawyers went after Perez Hilton for talking about the divorce, even though he has been one of Jolie’s biggest advocates since his blog started in 2005. It’s doubtful that Jolie’s lawyers will be able to bully Perez Hilton and others given the free speech laws in the United States.
