French officials have revealed they knew nothing about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie supposed plans to marry in the country this weekend, despite reports to the contrary.

The Hollywood couple will not be tying the knot in their luxury Chateau Miraval estate in the South of France any time soon, according to French officials who have dismissed the allegations.

Patrick Mareschi, deputy culture secretary of the village of Correns told Reuters: “We don’t know anything about it. Under French law couples have to get married at the town hall.

“Unlike with a religious wedding, there’s no way a couple can hold a civil ceremony at their own home.”

Local newspaper Var Martin also refuted national news channel France 3’s report on the impending all-star wedding, whose guest list includes Brad’s ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ co-star George Clooney.

Perhaps the biggest tip comes from photo agency X17 who posted a sarcastic message on their website.

The agency announced: “We sent an X17 photographer all the way down to the south of France – it’s pretty much in the middle of nowhere – to check out Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s chateau Miraval to see just what’s going on and … drumroll, please … there’s NOTHING going on!”

There is also no evidence of the lavish pre-wedding bash Brad was supposedly planning this weekend for an intimate gathering of family and friends.

The A-list couple – who met on the set of ‘Mr & Mrs Smith’ in 2005 and have six children together – announced their engagement in April.
