Well, it's official -- Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are legally single according to court documents released in April.
Sure it's sad, but at times like this, it's important to look to the future, or in Brad's case -- the distant past.
Yes, we're sure you've heard the rumors that Brad is back together with Jennifer Aniston.
At first, these reports sounded like so much wishful thinking -- nostalgic fans wanted these two to rekindle their romance, and now that they're both divorced, the timing seemed perfect.
Like so many others, we were quick to dismiss these rumors, but the more information that emerged, the more a reconciliation actually began to seem plausible.
Shortly thereafter, Pitt attended Aniston's 50th birthday party.
The latter move surprised some fans, as it was the first public indication of a friendship between the exes, and it was Jen, not Brad who was making the "bigger person" gesture.
But apparently, Brad didn't disappoint the birthday girl by showing up empty-handed.
If you believe a new report from UK tabloid The Mirror, Brad “wanted to make a gesture to Jen that would go beyond her wildest dreams."
And he did so by repurchasing the house that the former couple lived in during their marriage and handing her the deed.
According to The Mirror, Brad made the buy for a whopping $79 million (?!?!?!), and he surpsised Jen with the ridiculous gift at her birthday party.
"When Brad and Jen split, losing their dream home worsened the heartache of their divorce and it was one of her biggest regrets not buying Brad out," a source tells the outlet.
We don't even know where to begin with this one.
Hopefully, we don't have to tell you that it's almost certainly BS.
As Gossip Cop points, out Brad and Jen's former home is on sale -- but that appears to be just about the only factual accuracy anywhere in this article.
In all likelihood, some desperate tabloid hack was alerted to the sale and decided to cook up a little fan fiction.
In a way, you have to admire the shamelessness.
But in another way, you have to be sort of pissed that they manipulated our emotions like this.
A Pitt-Aniston reconciliation is like a Trump impeachment -- millions have been praying for it, and fake news on the subject will not be tolerated!
