Despite increasingly shrill gossip that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are heading for a split, “The rumors are totally and completely false,” a source close to the family tells PEOPLE in its new issue, on newsstands Friday.

“There are no problems whatsoever,” the source adds. “Things are really good.”

In fact, those who know the couple best say their only problem at the moment is the rumors themselves: that Jolie is fighting with Pitt, suffers from an eating disorder and is feuding with Pitt’s parents, Bill and Jane.

Pitt’s brother Doug, 40, who joined his parents and sister Julie at nephew Maddox’s sixth-birthday party in early August in Santa Barbara, Calif., dismisses the speculation with a chuckle – and Jolie, 32, has apparently done her best to brush off the more frivolous claims, including one that she angrily threw wine at Pitt, 43, while on vacation in France.

“Ridiculous,” says a Jolie-Pitt source.
