In the gossip game, romance items are the trickiest! Why? Because fickle hormones turn on a dime:

Just as you report Starlet A and Stud B took a fast train to Splitsville, paparazzi pics suddenly surface showing them all cuddly-wuddly-swoony-loony – and your rep’s ruined!

Case in point: Following reports that BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE called off their wedding after a big brouhaha, the often-volatile couple suddenly surfaced for a magical, super-private date in BevHills at the Montage hotel’s fabulous Ten Pound bar.

Reports My Montage Spy: “Brad and Angie wanted to have a private night out alone, but that’s almost impossible for them – so hotel bosses closed the bar, letting them enjoy a quiet, romantic dinner and drinks. They were really lovey-dovey, holding hands – and Brad kept kissing Angie tenderly on the neck and lips. They stayed there alone for several hours, and left looking very much in love.” Sigh!

(The marriage? Who the hell knows with these fickle star wackos!!)
