So many questions this morning in the Brangelina break-up about what went wrong, and what it means for the couples six children.
Despite the rumors of a Brad Pitt affair, sources say a “third party” did not cause the split, even though several publications say Pitt developed a romantic relationship with actress Marion Cotillard on the set of their upcoming World War II drama Allied.
The Daily Mail says Marion may even be pregnant with her second child with her actor/director boyfriend Guillaume Canet, whom she has been with for over a decade. Either way after twelve years of being together and just two years of marriage Angelina pulled the plug on the power couple.
In the eleven page court document Angelina sites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. She is not asking for child or spousal support, but is asking for sole physical custody of the six children, asking the court for her soon to be ex to only have visitation rights.
Brad is furious according to TMZ. They say he is ready to fight for shared custody. He is also reportedly mad that she is spinning the story to make it look like he is a bad dad and dangerous. TMZ also says there will be a war, in fact they say Angie has set up a legal battle war room in a rented house.
Angie’s attorney told ABC News, “The decision to divorce was made for the health of the family” and that may be related to what TMZ reported yesterday, which was that Angelina fed up by Pitt’s pot habit and excessive drinking which they say caused anger issues.
My source tells me that Brad knew the divorce was going to happen and they had been living separately for months. What he didn’t know was she was going to file this week. My source also said that they were scrambling to get rid of all their mutual real estate before filing, and one of the major issues she told me was Brad was a sloppy guy who smelled!
Pitt released his own statement to People saying, “I’m very sadden by this but what matters most now is the well -being of our kids.”
The news also surprised family, including Angie’s dad Jon Voight. Also catching famous friends off guard like George Clooney. Reports are the couple are worth close to $500 million.
