You might want to sit down. Seriously, take a seat because we are about to give you some news that will shatter your world. Brangelina (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) as we know it is OVER. As in, no more. Of all the celeb couples we thought had a chance, this pair was (well, at least we had hoped) the real deal.
We know you might need a moment to let the news sink in. You’re probably thinking to yourself, is this real life? Why, WHY is this happening? We wish we could say it was all just a cruel joke, but it’s the truth. At least we have each other to get through this difficult time together.
According to TMZ, Jolie filed legal docs Monday citing irreconcilable differences.
Of course, the rumor mill is filled with all kinds of reasons for the couple’s dramatic split. Inquisitor alluded to a possible affair between Pitt and his Allied co-star Marion Cotillard. Though there is no confirmation of this, it’s looking more and more like Jolie was struggling with jealousy troubles.
“For a while, the excitement of getting married masked their troubles,” an insider told OK! Magazine, via Hollywood Life, “but lately, they’ve been having explosive fights. Neither of them is sure that they can or should, hang on anymore.”
Another report regarding Brad Pitt’s supposed connection with Cotillard claimed that he and his wife had been in “crisis talks” at their home in France due to his close relationship with the French actress.
Page Six also reports that Jolie hired a private investigator to spy on Pitt on the set of his latest film. Not only was he said to be cheating with co-star Cotillard, but also with several Russian hookers. Jesus…
While we did not foresee this split, we can’t say we’re really that surprised if cheating was the cause. I mean, Brad Pitt is just meant to be single isn’t he? Never mind the fact that he’s had numerous relationships fall to pieces, but he’s Brad Fucking Pitt.
But, what about the kids?
One of our first thoughts after hearing of the breakup was, what about the 6 kiddos? According to TMZ, Jolie is adamant about sole custody. She is asking the judge to give Pitt visitation only. She does not want Brad to have joint physical custody, only joint legal custody. Yikes! There’s clearly some bad blood there. Needless to say, these poor kids are in for a mess of a custody battle.
Jolie will be represented by Johnny Depp’s divorce lawyer Laura Wasser.
And the plot thickens! Jolie will be using the same lawyer that represented Johnny Depp in his divorce with Amber Heard. Like, what in the actual fuck? I guess celebs only have a handful of lawyers to choose from. Who the hell knows?
We haven’t heard much from Pitt yet, but apparently he’s opening a resort in Croatia.
So, I guess that’s how he’s dealing with things. When you’re Brad Pitt and you’re going through a divorce you use your millions of dollars to open a resort in Croatia…cool. On the other hand, we wouldn’t mind just spending a few nights out there in a luxury resort with Brad Pitt.
We wonder how Jennifer Anniston is doing…
Probably, pretty well…
