Despite reports indicating otherwise, Angelina Jolie is not “starting to crack” and desperate for help from her estranged husband Brad Pitt.

Gossip Cop has officially refuted a report which initiated from Radar Online. It alleged that Jolie was being spread too thin with all of her work commitments and taking care of the couple’s six kids, and that she was desperate for help from her former husband, despite their still negotiating their divorce.

According to the Radar report, Jolie, 42, asked Pitt, 53, for help as she’s struggled from not only a heavy workload and taking care of the kids on her own, but also a great deal of new backlash after her Vanity Fair profile, where she detailed an audition game that child actors for her “First They Killed My Father” film played, that was widely criticized.

“What’s happening here is that Angie is not in a good place right now, and she’s starting to crack,” an unnamed source allegedly told the website. “Six demanding kids, a move, tons of projects in the works and so much more—all on her own. She wants more help from Brad, but he’s convinced her only motivation is money and has had enough of groveling for scraps when it comes to supervised visitation.”

The report also indicated that Pitt wasn’t completely on board with helping his ex out because of the ways she has tried to paint him to be a bad guy since she filed for divorce nearly a year ago, but she’s still hopeful that he will come around, because she knows he’s the only one who can help her.

“Truth is though, he’s the only person who could lift her out of these stressful patches, so it’s no surprise she’s missing his support and offering this olive branch.”

Gossip Cop’s sources tagged the story as false, saying that not only is Jolie not headed for a breakdown, but she also hasn’t reached out to Pitt for emotional support.

Jolie did receive wide criticism however over the game that was detailed in her recent profile. She revealed that the game involved casting directors putting money on a table and forcing the auditioning kids, who were mostly orphans, to stare at the money for a long time and think about something they could use it for, before it was taken away from them.

Jolie later spoke out about the backlash, saying that it was taken out of context, and calling it “false and upsetting.”

The same interview saw Jolie claim that her kids—Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne—were all still “healing” from their parents’ divorce, saying they’d gone through some things and were “healing from some things in life.”

Life & Style later reported that those comments upset Pitt greatly, as he felt that his ex was trying to paint him as a villain.

Pitt was also cast in a less flattering light last year after the divorce filing, when he was investigated by the FBI and CFS over alleged child abuse allegations. He was later cleared of any charges, and opened up about the situation during an interview with GQ Style back in May, saying that it was painful at the time, but he and Jolie had since decided to focus on making the process easier on their kids.

“Yeah, we’re working on that now,” he said at the time. “It was all that for a while. I was really on my back and chained to a system when Child Services was called. And you know, after that, we’ve been able to work together to sort this out. We’re both doing our best... It’s just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart.”
