Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split rumours are totally false, say friends of the couple

Despite the rumours of trouble which surround their relationship, it seems it's business as usual for Hollywood's golden couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Friends of the pair have reportedly said they are not about to split up, as was claimed in the British press over the weekend.

US publication People states that multiple sources close to them have put paid to the reports.

"Everything is fine" between the parents-of-six says one source. Another says the break-up claims are "totally false."

A separate source described the claims as false to celebrity website TMZ, which first broke the news of Michael Jackson's death.

The couple's last red carpet appearance together was in December, when they joined George Clooney at the Snowflake Ball (pictured).

There they appeared very much in love, sitting close and sharing loving looks as they sat down at their table.

Following that appearance they were spotted on January 2 enjoying a romantic dinner a deux at a French eaterie in New York.

The couple face constant rumours about the state of their five year relationship, but these have always been without foundation.
