New York, June 4 (IANS) Angelina Jolie’s lawyers have blamed last week’s false reports that the actress had given birth on an imposter who is posing as the star’s long time assistant Holly Goline. Two false alarms on Friday sent the media into a spin, with one outlet even claiming she had delivered two baby girls and named them Isla Marcheline and Amelie Jane - honouring her late mother Marcheline and her partner Brad Pitt’s mom Jane.

The confusion was sparked by the woman who has been sending out fake information to the media in the name of Goline.

It’s alleged the woman used a fake BlackBerry email address to send out incorrect press releases in an attempt to dupe the media and has been doing so for the last year, reports.

Now Jolie’s attorneys at law firm Lavely & Singer have sent out a letter to media explaining the situation.

The letter reportedly reads: “A random individual has engaged in a scheme to intentionally harm my client and deceive her fans, the public and the media through illegal and tortuous impersonation of Ms. Jolie’s long time assistant, Holly.

“The individual who claims to be, and to whom the media has relied upon as, a ‘reliable source’ is not my client’s assistant, nor does the email address belong to my client’s assistant.”
