Interesting.

Last week's jump-the-gun—and ultimately refuted—report about Angelina Jolie giving birth to twins may have been part of a larger scheme to discredit the people who speak on the actress' behalf and, when it comes down to it, the actress herself.

Jolie's legal camp at the L.A. firm Lavely & Singer has reportedly circulated a letter to various media outlets warning of an impostor who's been dishing out erroneous info under the guise of Jolie's longtime assistant, Holly Goline.

"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 longtime assistant, Holly," the letter reads.

"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."

In any event, Entertainment Tonight, which was first out of the gate with the bogus baby story and was apparently hoaxed by the ersatz Goline, has yet to formally retract it, despite taking it off the show's website.

Stay tuned to see how this one unfolds. Because eventually Jolie is going to give birth to twins, and we all want to make sure our "source close to the family" isn't a raving loon.
