Report: Angelina Jolie Started Rumor Campaign Against Jennifer Aniston

Just when the ongoing feud between Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston seems to have cooled off a bit, a new rumor sparks up and gets the whole icky ball of allegations rolling again.

In his new book Brangelina: The Untold Story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, author Ian Halperin—who brought us the best-selling Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson—says that Jolie waged “a mean-spirited but effective campaign” of rumors against Aniston, right about the time that Jolie was preparing to swipe Jen’s husband, Brad Pitt, away from her.

Such as?

Us Magazine reports that, in his book, Halperin claims that Angelina and her posse (including manager Geyer Kosinski and brother James Haven) leaked numerous, unflattering stories about Aniston to the press in 2005. Among the supposedly planted stories was that Aniston prioritized her career over starting a family, at a time when Pitt was developing a serious desire to have kids.
