Angelina Jolie is, allegedly, getting her revenge on her ex-husband Brad Pitt, by hooking up with one of his closest friends.

New Idea claimed that Jolie and Pitt are still fighting over the custody of their kids. And since things are going well between the A-listers, Jolie is thinking of ways how to hurt Pitt even more.

The Maleficent star, allegedly, thought about hooking up with Pitt’s friend, Mickey Rourke. But before deciding on Rourke, Jolie, allegedly, looked into some of Pitt’s friends and figured that he would be most hurt if she hooks up with Rourke.

After all, there’s some sort of history between Jolie, Pitt, and Rourke. In 2009, the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star, allegedly, caught his ex-wife and best friend kissing each other at the Academy Awards.

Pitt has also, allegedly, noticed how handsy Rourke is towards Jolie every time they’re at parties and award shows.

A source told the tabloid that Jolie is hoping that word would get out about her fling with Rourke so that she could raise Pitt’s temperature.

But according to Gossip Cop, the tabloid’s claims couldn’t be farther from the truth. After all, Rourke is in a relationship with Anastassija Makarenko, so it’s unlikely for him to be cheating on his girlfriend with Jolie.

The rumor-debunking site also pointed out the fact that the tabloid used an old photo of Jolie and Rourke kissing. And they purposely used this to convince fans that the kiss happened recently when it didn’t.

Meanwhile, Jolie is being linked to a slew of men for the simple reason that she’s single. And she’s been single since her divorce from Pitt in 2016.

In August 2019, Star claimed that Jolie was flirting with her Marvel Universe co-star, Chris Hemsworth.

The tabloid claimed that Jolie and Hemsworth crossed paths after the actress was cast in The Eternals. And it seems the tabloid forgot that Hemsworth is happily married to Elsa Pataky.

Two months earlier, the same tabloid linked Jolie to Keanu Reeves. A source claimed that the A-listers were introduced to each other by Reeves’ mom, who happens to be neighbors with Jolie.

However, the tabloid failed to spread rumors about Jolie’s dating life because they’re obviously incorrect. As such, the claims that she’s seeing Reeves and Hemsworth just died naturally shortly after they were first published.
