Angelina Jolie Dead, Another Death Hoax
After Jaden Smith, Jolie became the latest subject of viral death hoax. It started with an alleged suicide video from CNN, which went viral on Facebook. The viral post indicated that it was a CNN video footage, where the popular actress said her last words to her fans and Pitt.
While there is a play button, the video is fake, and is just another product of a website who also started rumors about Jaden Smith’s passing. So what is this video?
The alleged Angelina Jolie suicide video is a trap, Snopes reported. Once clicked, it will bring users to a certain website where they will be asked to enter personal details. Doing this will put your identity, as well as your computer or mobile devices at risk.
So if you come across this video on Facebook, you now know what to do. Just ignore it because Jolie is not dead. She is alive doing her usual things in life.
Divorce With A ‘Cheating’ Brad Pitt
While the Jolie death rumor is just a hoax, fans are still wondering if the rumors about her rocky relationship with Pitt is true. Recent reports indicated that there is an impending divorce because Pitt cheated on her wife.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Pitt was seen together with Marion Cottilard on several events. The closeness between Pitt and her co-star did not sit well with Jolie. But is it enough to lead to a divorce?
Pitt finally addressed the rumors. The 52-year-old actor, who will likely get another Oscar nomination for “Allied” movie, said that the divorce rumors are inaccurate. He insisted that their life, including their children, inside their house is normal and are still having trips together in recent months.
So fans of the Pitt-Jolie tandem need not worry. Jolie is alive and her marriage with Pitt is getting stronger.
