Tabloids have speculated for months about a romance between Pitt and Angelina Jolie, following the actor and wife Jennifer Aniston issue on their separation. In April 18 issue US Weekly writes on its cover "It's True!" over separate photos of Pitt and Jolie. The article quotes employees of a California hotel who claim they saw the two actors being affectionate.
Though it is so, still the media reports remain "completely untrue" for Pitt, whose publicist Cindy Guagenti, said in a statement to syndicated entertainment show "Access Hollywood" for a report that aired Thursday April 7, 2005. Further, a source claims US Weekly has made use its popularity to confirm their stories, whether they are true or not, just the way many other tabloids that make so much money do.
