LONDON - Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have dismissed rumours that they are about to adopt a child from Hiati.
The couple was said to be in the ‘latter stages’ of adding a baby girl called Lean into their brood, reports the Daily Mail.
The reports also claimed that the child was going to make a trial visit to the U.S to make sure Leah adapts well, before being permanently placed with the Jolie-Pitt’s six other children.
Jolie, who has has three biological and three adopted children, has even released a statement through her publicist today.
“There is no truth to these rumours”, the statement said, referring to a story published in a British tabloid.
“Rather, Ms Jolie is focused on enhancing the welfare and legal protection of children within Haiti.
“As such, she has been meeting with government of Haiti officials, Haitian legal experts and non-governmental organizations regarding a new initiative of the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.”
According to Adam Waldman of Endeavour, Jolie has never even met the Haitian girl called Leah that was the focus of the adoption rumours.
“She just didn’t want these false rumours to go unchallenged and interfere or distract from work in Haiti,” he added. (ANI)
