Cheaters never win and winners never cheat.
But cheaters do make good celebrity gossip fodder, which is the reason we've covered so many of them in depth on our website.

Earlier this month, I told you that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were on the road to reconciliation when a source close to the couple said after he quit drinking, Angelina Jolie wanted nothing more than to take Brad Pitt back. But in a twist worthy of M. Night Shyamalan, Life & Style magazine has their own inside source that says while Angelina still wants to reconcile, Brad Pitt doesn’t want her back.
Still, Angie is treading lightly as she attempts to patch up their fractured relationship. “She subtly asks Brad about his personal life and reminds him of all the fun times they had together,” says the source, “in hopes that he’ll fall back in love with her.” (A Brad source tells Life & Style, “That’s never going to happen! Brad is done with her.”)
Okay, so here’s a little mental exercise for you; pretend Angelina Jolie is desperately throwing herself at you, begging you to take her back, and your reaction is to go “Eh, I’m tired of fucking her.” That’s the life Brad Pitt lives. Brad does whatever the hell he wants.
Life & Style went on to say:
Angie is hoping she and Brad — who was cleared of child abuse allegations in November — can make amends and reignite their romance now that he’s made positive changes in his life, but an insider tells Life & Style that the Hollywood hunk is solely focused on building a stronger bond with his children. “The reason he changed his lifestyle was for the kids,” says the Angie insider, “not to impress Angelina.”
I get it. Angelina Jolie is super extra crazy and Brad may have reached his limit in dealing with her. He’s good friends with George Clooney, maybe George has been telling him that having an intelligent, hyper-competent partner like Amal who dedicates her life to fighting injustice is way better than someone who used to wear Billy Bob Thornton’s blood as a necklace.
Last week, several media outlets reported that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had put their divorce on hold.
Many went so far as to suggest the iconic former couple was considering a reconciliation.
But now, our hopes have been dashed, just like Brad's hopes at the end of Seven, when he found out Gwyneth Paltrow had been beheaded and he didn't get to see it happen.
(Disclaimer: We kid. We have no desire to see Gwyneth Paltrow beheaded, and we're sure Brad doesn't either.)
(Also, apologies for the spoiler, but c'mon, Seven came out forever ago,)
Anyway, TMZ is reporting today that while the divorce may be taking longer than originally planned, Brad and Angie have no intention of attempting to save their marriage.
Though her own comments indicate that Jolie regrets portraying Pitt as an outright villain in the weeks following their separation, she has no interest in giving him a second chance.
Pitt is reportedly just as happy to let the relationship die, as he feels he was slandered when Jolie made him out to be an abusive father.
The divorce was triggered by a confrontation between Pitt and son Maddox that took place aboard a private jet last September.
Details have been hard to come by, but an investigation cleared Pitt of child abuse charges.
We may never find out exactly what happened on that tarmac in Minnesota.
But whatever took place, it was ugly enough that it led Brad to seriously reevaluate his life and his parenting skills.
After years of heavy drinking and recreational drug use, Pitt got sober and rededicated himself to being the best possible father to his six children.
The change was significant that Jolie recognized it, and stopped trying to strip him of his custody and visitation rights.
So it sounds like against all odds, Brad and Angie have reached an amicable co-parenting arrangement and are ironing out the terms of a relatively civil divorce.
Perhaps a reconciliation was a bit too much to expect.
Like when you turn on the TV and hope that the climactic scene in Seven will randomly be on cable.
We kid Gwyneth because we love her.
With this week's news that Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are divorcing, many fans of celebrity couples were quick to declare love dead.
But now, it may be time to cast off your mourning attire and start believing again, as arguably the most famous couple on the planet is rumored to be giving their relationship a second chance.
Yes, sources tell Us Weekly that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have called off their divorce and are considering an attempt at saving their marriage.
“The divorce is off,” says the source.
“They haven’t done anything to move it forward in several months and no one thinks they are ever going to.”
Many have expressed shock at the news, as Pitt and Jolie's split back in September of 2016 was anything but amicable.
The couple parted ways following a confrontation between Pitt and son Maddox aboard a private jet.
Insiders say Jolie was so appalled by her husband's behavior that she left him the next day without hesitation.
Nearly a year later, however, Jolie is reportedly considering giving Pitt a second chance for one simple reason:
“She’s still so in love with him,” says the source.
Of course, Jolie's primary concern remains her six children, but she's reportedly been won over by Pitt's efforts to better himself for the sake of his kids.
In a candid interview published in GQ back in May, Pitt revealed that he's now sober after decades of heavy drinking and recreational drug use.
He also revealed that he had spent a good deal of time evaluating his parenting skills and had found himself lacking.
“I grew up with a father-knows-best/war mentality — the father is all-powerful, superstrong — instead of really knowing the man and his own self-doubt and struggles,” Pitt told the mag.
“And it’s hit me smack in the face with our divorce: I gotta be more. I gotta be more for them. I have to show them. And I haven’t been great at it.”
Insiders say Pitt and Jolie are far from fully reconciled, but both are reportedly optimistic about their future together.
“Everyone thinks they are going to get back together,” says the source.
“It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out.”
It would certainly be welcome news to fans weary of seemingly constant celebrity breakups.
Sorry, every bisexual girl I’ve ever met but oddly not lesbians, but Angelina Jolie may not be single any time soon after all. According to Us Weekly, Jolie and husband Brad Pitt aren’t moving forward with their divorce and it’s more likely they’ll reconcile than divorce. It does make sense Jolie would want to hang on to Pitt considering all the trouble she went to steal him away from his last wife, who thinks he’s an idiot anyway.
After telling everyone who would listen how terrible Pitt was, Jolie has seemingly changed her mind after he stopped drinking and admitted he could stand to improve as a partner and a father. Which is, you know fair play. Who hasn’t had a fight with their partner, ran to their friends to tell them what an asshole they are, and then slept on it and made up? The only difference is that when you or I do it, it doesn’t end up on CNN. Well, okay, that and when I have a fight with my girlfriend, no one phones Jennifer Aniston and asks for a snarky comment. Side note, Jen, you’re almost fifty and you’ve been divorced for twelve years, it’s time to let it go.
According to Us Weekly’s unnamed source, “He got sober to try and win her back. He knew he had a problem that he had to take care of. And that’s all she ever wanted.” The modern-day Malibu Deep Throat also added “Everyone thinks they are going to get back together. It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out.” This source also added that even through all their troubles, “She’s still so in love with him.” Which is actually really sweet.
I actually think it’s kind of nice that the Hollywood power couple may reconcile. They can save on tattoo removal fees and Brad can stop listening to Bon Iver while locking himself up in his sculpting studio. But if things ultimately don’t work out for the couple, someone at least send Brad an MP3 of Reverend Horton Heat’s “Galaxy 500.” It’s a much better break up song.
Back in May, following months of rumors about his personal life and the state of his mental health, Brad Pitt admitted to struggling with a drinking problem and seeking treatment for substance abuse.
In a surprisingly candid interview with GQ, the 53-year-old Pitt revealed that he had been drinking heavily since college and couldn't recall going a single day in his adult life without some sort of inebriant.
After a tumultuous year, Pitt's life is reportedly settling back down these days.
His formerly contentious custody battle with Angelina Jolie is said to have reached a more civil stage in which both parties are working together to figure out an arrangement that works best for their kids.
The actor is working again, and there are rumors that Pitt is romantically involved with Sienna Miller.
Of course, his sobriety is still relatively new, and thus, rather fragile.
Anyone who's struggled with addiction can tell you that at the point Pitt's at now, it's a near-constant battle.
So it's no surprise that friends are said to be concerned by reports that Pitt was recently spotted partying at a nightclub into the wee hours.
According to Radar online, Pitt was "the last man standing" at the Rabbit Hole Club in England on June 23, where he partied until 3 am after spending the day at the Glastonbury Festival.
"At this rate, Brad’s heading for a major relapse, and he’s only going to push Angie’s buttons if she thinks Brad’s flirting with Sienna," a source close to the situation tells Radar.
A relapse, of course, would be devastating not only in terms of Pitt's health and overall well-being, but also with regard to his custody rights.
Insiders say he and Jolie have reached a point where they're amicably co-parenting their six children, but that peace is rumored to be tenuous.
"Right now Angie holds all the aces in terms of custody, so Brad needs to keep on her good side," says the source.
Hopefully, Pitt's been able to party without getting drunk or high.
If that's not the case, we hope for both his sake and the sake of his children that he'll be able to find the help he needs.
Sienna Miller may have never achieved household name as an actress, but if you toss out the male-female double standard and give credit where its due for bedding the best and brightest A-listers, then Sienna is a living legend.
Yes, the official list now goes:
Chamberlain, Nicholson, Brando, McQueen, Hefner ... Miller.
Actually, there are two Millers, because Arthur Miller deserves utmost props for banging Marilyn Monroe as a playwright.
Anyway, Sienna has conducted high-profile relationships with Jude Law, Tom Sturridge, and Balthazar Getty (who was married at the time, but we're not here to judge).
Back in late 2015/early 2016, it was rumored that Miller dated Ben Affleck following his split from Jennifer Garner.
The two filmed Live By Night together, and sources say they really hit it off on set.
But either the relationship fizzled or it never really began, because Ben and Sienna went their separate ways not long after they finished promoting the film.
But it doesn't really matter, because these days, Sienna's got bigger fish to fry.
In fact, she's reportedly been getting cozy with the mst coveted newly-single fish in the sea,
According to UK tabloid The Sun (so take this with all the grains of salt), Sienna is dating Brad Pitt.
Sources say they're not flirting, not hooking up, not canoodling (whatever the hell that means), but full-blown dating.
An insider tells the publication that Sienna is giddy with excitement, but keeping things under wraps for the sake of Brad's privacy:
“It’s early days, but they are very into each other and enjoying a carefree, casual summer romance," says the source.
"They’re both absolutely determined to keep everything under wraps. Their goal is to explore things without any massive publicity. It could all fizzle out, so they’re waiting to see.”
It's worth noting that multiple tabloids claimed Brad was getting back together with Jennifer Aniston like two days ago, so you really have to wait and see with these rumors.
But Brad and Sienna would make a lot of sense.
(Certainly more so than Brad and Jen, what with Jen being married and all.)
And hey, even if Brad and Sienna only hooked up place, she's basically cemented her place as this generation's most stone cold lady pimp.
Feel free to proceed to the comments to inform us of how wildly offensive the term "lady pimp" is.
The following actors should always be involved in hairy situations.
When it comes to their faces, that is.
Because while some men look disheveled and unprofessional while rocking a beard and/or a mustache, these men manage to look more distinguished and dapper.
Don't you agree? (Yes, it does help that they are exceptional human specimens to begin with, we acknowledge this.)

Now that Brad Pitt has been set free, he’s become the most eligible bachelor to age 40 and above celebrities, and also, 20-something adults who sort of know that he once was People‘s “Sexiest Man Alive”. Everyone’s clamoring to link Pitt to someone, anyone. They can’t imagine that perhaps Pitt wants to quietly vape and sculpt to his heart’s delight.
Recent rumors includes flirtations with co-star Sienna Miller. Now sources say Pitt’s actively dating. He keeps it on the down low though. He keeps his kids priority number one. That’s understandable.
Not only that, old ex-girlfriends have come forward to poke at the tires.
Pitt has been hit on by some women, stalked by others, and he has suddenly been contacted by exes, the list of which is said to include Kate Hudson, Juliette Lewis, Christina Applegate, Thandie Newton and Gwyneth Paltrow.
That list is all over age 40 excluding Kate Hudson. She’s close though, clocking in at 37.
Sorry to break their hearts, but this source says Brad has no interest in them.
“No partying, no fun. Just work and parenting.”
Translation: Casting for early 20’s, models, no wrinkles. Apply within.
Don’t feel too bad for Angelina Jolie. Supposedly, she has her own mystery meat. According to Hollywood Life (and take them with a HUGE grain of salt), she’s been crushing on a guy for awhile, even during her marriage with Brad.
“He has a generous, philanthropic spirit…He also has political ambitions which she loves. Angie feels her new guy, if it works out, could propel her out of Hollywood and into the next phase of her life — the serious political arena.”
Who could this be? Sounds like someone outside of Hollywood. It might also be Jolie’s publicist lying to make it seem like Jolie has something going on with her life.
In fact, I bet Pitt’s publicist lied about him having exes come out of the woodwork.
These two likely sit at home right now and eat out of tubs of ice cream in their underwear. Join the club!
Back in September, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in a move that stunned Hollywood and left fans with a number of questions as to what could have prompted Jolie to pull the plug on her marriage so abruptly.
Shortly thereafter, a narrative emerged that seemed to explain Angie's actions:
Insiders explained that an altercation between Brad and the couple's eldest son aboard a private jet turned so ugly that Jolie felt she had no choice but to immediately move out on Pitt and take the kids.
That still seems to be the likeliest explanation for the dissolution of Hollywood's most highly-publicized marriages, but with the amount of scrutiny the situation has been under, it was only a matter of time before alternative theories began to emerge.
Today, one of those theories is making the rounds online courtesy of documentary filmmaker Ian Halperin, who claims that it was actually Angelina's controversial relationship with her brother, James Haven, that drove the couple apart.
“James was so close to them that he was actually living with them,” Halperin tells Radar Online in an interview to promote his new film, Broken: The Incredible Story of Brangelina.
“It put Brad over the edge. Brad gave Ang the ultimatum; it’s him or me!”
Halperin doesn't deny that the midair fight took place, but he insists that Brad and Angie's marriage was already damage beyond repair at that point.
In fact, he says there's reason to believe that Halperin - not 911 or CPS - was the recipient of Jolie's first phone call after the plane landed.
“The rumor is that she reached out to James while she was on the plane to call child services, but I haven’t seen the smoking gun on that point," Halperin tells Radar.
Halperin says his film also addresses the elephant in the room on the topic of Angie and James' relationship, namely the allegations of incest that have plagued the siblings.
“I get into the whole rumors of incest. I do conclude unwaveringly in the film it was mainly a publicity stunt and it worked, but on the flip side people agree the kiss was too close for comfort,” he said.
He adds that while he doesn't believe there was a sexual component to Jolie and Haven's relationship, he does feel Angie and James' relationship was inappropriately close:
"Then the conclusion is amongst experts ‘No wonder they split.’ Here we are more than a decade later and James is living with them full time. Ultimately it was too close for comfort for Brad.”
After the explosive collapse of Brangelina, rumors are flying about Brad Pitt’s love life.
Honestly, rumors have been flying about every part of Brad Pitt’s life since the divorce. Is he a child beater? Is he on crack? Is he getting facelifts to numb the pain? According to a bunch of assholes like me, maybe.
According to a new report, Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock met through mutual friend George Clooney, who thinks they should be together. According to the insider:
“George is determined to help heal Brad’s heart and couldn’t think of anyone better than Sandy. They’re keeping it on the down-low…. George thought that Sandra was the ideal girl for Brad.”
Another source, however, says Brad is taking some time for himself and not looking to get involved with anyone. This seems more likely because that motherfucker has been through the ringer lately. Apparently, he spent weeks locking himself in a room fifteen hours a day while sculpting and listening to sad music.
That doesn’t sound like a man over his ex enough to start boning anyone to me.
It’s been two months since Brad and Angelina hired a private judge to handle their messy divorce and custody issues, which have pretty much dragged Brad Pitt’s name through the mud as an abusive crack whore, only for us to later discover that most of that wasn’t real.
A source told E! News that the ex-couple are talking for the first time in a while.
“Things have calmed settled between Brad and Angelina. It’s not as tense as it had been. They are focused on the kids and working to do what’s best for them.”
“Brad has been able to spend more time with the kids. He’s doing well and is focused on healthy, clean living. He’s in a good place.”
This communication isn’t about anything heavy yet, but it’s a big step forward.
“They recently started talking again and it’s a significant step. Up until now everything was through lawyers and assistants.”
That’s all changed for the better of the kids, and both have high hopes. The insider said of Brad:
“Brad hopes that they can be successful at co-parenting and get to a place where they can be friendly. They both have agreed to put the kids first.”
This lines up with what Jolie told the BBC last month:
“We are a family and we’ll always be a family. And we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it.”
There’s no bigger mistake in life than getting a tattoo that ties you to your significant other. But, when you’re a Hollywood star and in love, making mistakes is a daily occurrence.
Jolie got three new tattoos on her back, while Pitt chose to have a Buddhist symbol inked on the left side of his stomach. Kanpai also noted that he used the same ink for both of their tattoos, so that they are “symbolically bound as husband and wife.”
Well, this doesn’t sound so bad. I have a symbolic tattoo that commits me to my significant other. It’s a J (for Jessica) with an infinity sign. But given that my name starts with a J as well, should we ever split, it’s still a pretty easy tattoo to explain to my next significant other. See, you can ink your body in commitment and still be smart about things.
My guess is that both Pitt and Jolie will be returning to Thailand in the near future to do some awesome cover-up. Pitt will probably have some ode to Jennifer Aniston because he finally realizes that he screwed up the best Hollywood relationship ever. And Jolie will keep adding symbols like they are her kids.
Yesterday, we reported that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have been in contact in the months since his divorce from Angelina Jolie.
Obviously the rumor was greeted with a high degree of skepticism, as Brad and Jen's marriage ended up in spectacularly ugly fashion and the former couple famously avoided one another for over a decade.
But amazingly, the story is now being confirmed by credible sources, and it seems Pitt and Aniston may be conversing more regularly than we originally thought.
Speaking with People magazine, an anonymous mutual friend confirms that the actors have been texting on a regular basis since shortly after Pitt's divorce from Jolie.
“They have been friends for a while and often text,” the source says.
The insider disputes some of the claims that Us Weekly made on Thursday, namely, that Pitt and Aniston only started communicating last month, and that the actor had to go to great lengths to track down his ex's phone number.
“This is nothing new, he didn’t have to jump through hoops to get Jennifer’s number,” the source claims.
The tipster didn't go into detail with regard to exactly how long Pitt and Aniston have been in communication, but it sounds like their back-and-forth been going on at least for the past few months.
The original report had Pitt navigating his way through a "tangled web of contacts" to track down Aniston's number so that he could wish her happy birthday.
The actress turned 48 on February 11.
“They started talking once he wished her a happy birthday," the original source claimed.
"[Pitt] confided in her ... Brad told her he’s having a hard time with his split and they exchanged a few texts reminiscing about the past.”
We may never know which version of events is more accurate, but both accounts concur that despite prior reports of Pitt and Justin Theroux passive-aggressively butting heads, Jen's current husband is cool with her re-connecting with her ex.
“Justin is OK with them being friends,” Us Weekly's source says.
There was a time, not all that long ago, when a Pitt and Aniston friendship would have been unimaginable.
Maybe we should all take a page from their books and try to make friends with our exes.
Just kidding that's a terrible idea.
Despite what many a breathless tabloid headline has told you, stars are not just like us.
Like, not even a little bit.
To say that Angelina Jolie has had a rough few months would be a major understatement.
She filed for divorce from her longtime love, Brad Pitt, after a suspicious incident, and since then, she's been widely perceived to be the bad guy in the split.
But this weekend, Angelina sat down for an interview with BBC World News. And for the first time, she's opening up about the divorce.
And she sounds pretty reasonable and level-headed to us.
About the divorce itself, she said "i don't want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and ... and we are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it.
"Many, many people find themselves in this situation," she went on. "My whole, my family ... we've all been through a difficult time."
"My focus is my children, our children ... and my focus is finding this way through. We are and forever will be a family. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer."
She said that "It's been a difficult few months," but "Right now, I'm going through a moment when just everybody's in my room. Two dogs, two hamsters and two children at the moment. It's wonderful."
"But, usually, I just wake up trying to figure out who's going to get the dog out, who's doing to start the pancakes and did anybody brush their teeth."
Then Angelina was asked about where she saw herself in five years, and she joked "At this stage, I hope I'm just standing."
In five years, her six children will range in age from 20 years old to 13, so yeah, we imagine "just standing" is a pretty reasonable goal.
She continued "In five years' time I would like to be traveling around the world visiting my children, hoping that they're just happy and doing really interesting things, and I imagine in many different parts of the world, and I'll be supporting them."
"Everything I do I hope is that I represent something, and I represent the right things to my children, and give them the right sense of what they're capable of, and the world as it should be seen."
"Not through the prism of Hollywood," she said, "or through a certain kind of life, but really take them into the world, where they have a really good sense and become rounded people."
So Angelina sounds pretty good, right? Not at all like the unhinged woman we've been hearing about in the tabloids.
And thank goodness for that.
Considering Angelina Jolie has either lied about Brad Pitt being an abusive addict or outed him as one, and now he can’t see his kids without a court-appointed supervisor present, no shit he is having a bad time. And according to rumor is taking it out on his own face.
Despite being one of the biggest movie stars out there, the only family time he got this holiday season was a short supervised visit to give his kids presents. A source close to Brad told The Daily Mail that he confided in them that:
“This has been the worst holiday season of my life.”
Pitt only met up with five of his kids on Christmas day, as Maddox didn’t want to see him at all. According to those close to the actor he will do anything he has to in order to get his kids back.
“Brad is like a broken man. He feels betrayed by a woman whom he says he still loves. He misses her despite everything that has happened between them.”
This is so fucking sad.
In case you somehow missed the approximately 20 bajillion jokes on social media, 2016 was a rough year.
We lost far too many beloved entertainers; famous celebrity couples dropped like flies, and the American people decided to give the nuke codes to a Flamin' Hot Cheeto with a rage-tweeting problem.
Anyway, 2017 has gotta be better, right?
Well, maybe not according to the world's leading psychics.
Here's what the best-known crystal ball-gazers have to say about the year to come:
1. R.I.P. Queen Elizabeth II, Long Live King Charles!
2. Oprah Goes Blonde
3. Trump Gets Impeached
4. Hillary Clinton: Not Finished Yet!
5. Jimmy Kimmel Might Want to Invest in a Hat
6. Pam Anderson's Love of Animals Will Come Back to Bite Her
On September 19, Angelina Jolie filed to divorce Brad Pitt.
On September 15, it has been alleged that Pitt berated 15-year old son Maddox aboard a private airplane, leading to an FBI investigation over whether or not he physically abused his son as well.
However, according to a new bombshell report, Jolie and Pitt started to have problems long before either of these incidents.
In fact, the marriage between these stars has been over for years.
We just didn't know it until now.
While much has been made over the Pitt versus Maddox confrontation - and while a number of sources have claimed Pitt's drug use and poor parenting are to blame for the couple's split - an insider says something different to Radar Online.
This mole claims that the romance basically ended in early 2014 after Jolie and Pitt got into a heated exchange at the Academy Awards.
“She behaved so badly that night, trying to steal all the attention from him," Radar writes of the ceremony.
Pitt was featured prominently at the Oscars that years due to his role in the frequently-nominated 12 Years a Slave.
And Jolie allegedly responded with jealousy and pettiness, trying to upstage her husband via a revealing dress and obnoxious behavior.
“She was so awful to him [that] his Plan B team that he cut short his own celebration with the 12 Years A Slave co-stars,” claims this insider, adding:
"She wouldn’t let him enjoy the win for even a second."
Jolie truly rose to stardom back in 2000 when she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Girl, Interrupted.
But we guess that victory wasn't enough.
Instead of being happy that the supposed love of her life had starred in such a well-reviewed and decorated film, she apparently could not handle Pitt's success back then.
According to the source, Jolie’s awful behavior at the time “marked months of her eye rolling and getting jealous and bored of Brad and Plan B dominating everything in the lead-up to the Oscars.”
As a result: “They had a massive fight that night and agreed to split," Radar claims.
We know what you're thinking:
Wait... didn't Pitt and Jolie actually get married in 2014?!?
They sure did, in August of that year.
But Radar essentially compares this decision to when troubled couple have a baby, thinking that it will help them move past their problems.
The site writes that "the wedding was an attempt to patch up the damage that had began during the awards season earlier that year."
Did it work? Maybe, for a little while at least.
But it was mostly a case of too little, too late.
Which is now to say that an unfortunate exchange between Pitt and Maddox didn't take place on board that airplane. It did. A rep for Pitt has confirmed as much.
But it sounds as if this incident only really gave Jolie an excuse to finally, officially, legally end the famous union.
In reality, Brangelina had already been over for a very long time.
2016 has been a sh*tty year for more than one reason, and celebrity breakups are definitely one of them!

In case you live under a rock and haven’t heard, Brangelina is over.
How over are they?
So over that Angelina Jolie filed for divorce, wants sole custody of the kids, and basically said that Brad is an abusive alcoholic with a drug problem.
However, as more evidence comes to light, it looks more and more like Brad Pitt didn’t actually do any of that shit. After being investigated on child abuse claims and cleared, he claimed he had some bombshell audio that would turn the whole battle on its side.
And it looks like Pitt wasn’t lying. On the infamous flight to Minneapolis where an altercation allegedly took place, actual FAA records reveal that something else happened entirely.
And by something else I mean nothing. Literally nothing happened. The flight was just kinda bumpy.
Acting with A-list actors is not all fun and games.
In Us Magazine, Marion Cotillard spoke about the steamy sex scene with Brad Pitt in the upcoming Allied.
The sex scene takes place in the backseat of a car during a sandstorm, so already it’s a pretty complicated set up. Turns out having to rehearse and choreograph sex for days on end isn’t really that fun. “‘OK, this is so weird.’ And then we go into this and then I’m going on top of you and then we are going to kiss,” said Cotillard.
Marion may be making sure we all know how much she didn’t enjoy fake fucking Brad, since rumors about a real life affair between the two were plentiful after Pitt’s divorce. But Marion insists she is in love with her husband and in fact is pregnant with his child. And it’s not possible to have sex with another man if you’re pregnant.
Hopefully Pitt will catch a break soon and quit being in the news only for women talking about how shitty it is to be with him.
Rumors are going around that Brad Pitt has some audio recordings of Angelina Jolie that are gonna change everything. According to a source, these “dynamite” tapes will fucking wreck Angelina Jolie’s life and stop her from getting sole custody of their children.
According to the insider:
“Nobody wants to play dirty like that — it’s not good for the children — but Angelina and her team seem absolutely hell-bent on trying to discredit Brad in order to stop him getting joint custody.”
Jolie is tryna get sole custody, and considering Pitt was cleared of child abuse allegations, people are starting to wonder if Jolie is doing her best to make him look bad in order to keep a hold on the kids. She wants sole custody, he wants joint custody, and it is a mess.
As you know, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from her longtime love after an alleged incident occurred on a flight back to LA from Europe (stopping in Minnesota) -- and the FBI has been trying to gather all the facts ever since.
According to TMZ, two officials met with Angie and all the kids for about three hours on Tuesday in order to determine where exactly the plane was located when the alleged argument went down... as that matters for nailing down which jurisdiction is responsible for handling the case.
Now, as you may remember, this is a "nominal investigation" and there's a small chance Brad will be prosecuted in any way.
We're hearing the 41-year-old actress totally cooperated with the questioning, but she's ultimately just hoping the investigation goes away entirely so they can move on.

It's been just about a month now since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, and it seems like things have gotten worse with each passing day.
The first thing we heard was that Brad's alleged drug use and drinking was what caused Angelina to pull the plug on the couple's long relationship.
And then, heartbreaking though it was, it came out that Brad was being investigated for child abuse after an incident on a plane.
Brad was said to have struck his oldest son, Maddox, though reports vary on whether or not he actually meant to hit the boy.
There's also been countless claims that Brad was cheating on Angelina, and she filed for divorce after she found out.
If you'll notice, all these stories point to Brad being the bad guy here. He hasn't really defended himself, and he even agreed to undergo random drug testing as part of the temporary custody agreement, so it's been easy to assume that whatever happened, it was largely Brad's fault.
But according to this new report, Brad has just been biding his time. And things are about to get downright nasty.
A source states that while the L.A.Department of Children and Family Services is still looking into the incident on the plane, the investigation will be over soon. And when that happens, Brad is going to fight for sole custody of the kids.
Apparently Brad would have been fine with sharing custody with Angelina, but since she's not willing to do that, he's taking an "all or nothing" approach.
"Brad's taking the kids," the source says. "And it's Angie's worst nightmare."
The source explains that Angie isn't "receptive" to the idea of joint custody "because she's insisting on having sole physical custody. Angie knows that the only way she can punish Brad is by using the kids in her bitter battle with him."
"It's a very sick game she's playing, and she could end up losing everything."
If you don't understand how Brad could possibly end up with sole custody after everything that's been said about him lately, well, this insider can explain that, too.
"While Angie's camp has continued to spread lies about him and make him sound like a monster and an unfit parent, he's refused to go dirty on her in the media. But in front of a judge, it will be another story."
"Brad has compiled a complete dossier on Angelina," the source continues, "of the serious mental health issues she has dealt with over the years. He is saving all of the pertinent and necessary information for the battle in court, where it matters."
"He'll go after Angelina and expose her psychological demons, show how she puts the children in dangerous situations when she visits war-torn countries and more."
"He'll be proven as the furthest thing from the villain she's tried to paint him to be," the source concludes. "He's ready for her, He can and will refute all her claims in family court. He won't let her take those children from him."
Remember when Brangelina was proof that true love was real, when their love and beauty made the world just a little bit brighter?
In the weeks since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, the actress and her six children have reportedly lived in relative seclusion in a Los Angeles rental home.
Insiders say the Jolie-Pitt kids have hardly strayed from the property, and Angelina's brother, James Haven, and eldest son, Maddox, have assisted her in keeping the younger kids distracted and entertained.
It's good that she has some help, as we imagine keeping her brood sheltered from the storm of media scrutiny while simultaneously diverting their attention from the flood of theories and rumors about their parents' separation is no mean feat.
As for Brad, well, not surprisingly, the actor is said to be devastated by the events of the past month.
Pitt and Jolie have reached a temporary settlement which gives her sole physical custody of the couple's kids.
Insiders say Pitt did little to fight her on the matter, both out of hopes of expediting the divorce process for the sake of his kids, and because he ultimately had little recourse:
“Brad was in an impossible situation," famed divorce attorney Raoul Felder tells Radar Online.
“The charges that have been made against him may or may not be based in fact. We still don’t know - and Angelina’s played him like a violin."
While there are varying stories about exactly what happened aboard that private jet on September 15, accounts concur that an altercation between Brad and Maddox prompted to Angelina to move out on her husband and take the kids with her.
Just days later, she filed for divorce.
Brad was investigated by the Department of Child and Family Services and the FBI, but both agencies ultimately decided that there were no grounds to press criminal charges.
Despite the ugly nature of the split, however, Jolie has not gone so far as to request a restraining order, and People magazine is reporting that she recently allowed for Pitt for visit with his kids for an unspecified period of time.
“Brad has spent some wonderful time with children recently,” a source tells the magazine.
“He will do whatever it takes to be with them, now and always.”
There's no word yet on where the visit took place or whether it was supervised.
Jolie was reportedly not present.
"Brad loves his children more than anything in this world, and they matter more than anything else to him," the insider adds.
While it's nice that Jolie and Pitt seem to be putting their kids' needs above their own, we still can't see this split going smoothly.
Sadly, we imagine that things will get much uglier before they approach anything resembling a resolution.
It's beginning to look as though the Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt divorce will get uglier before it approaches anything resembling a resolution.
Most things in life are easier when you're rich and famous (or so it seems), but we're willing to bet that divorce is much tougher when every aspect of your personal life is fodder for tabloid covers.
Perhaps that's why Jolie is taking desperate measures to ensure that her children are as well protected as possible from the glut of rumors and recent increase in media scrutiny.
Angelina and Brad recently reached a temporary settlement that gives Jolie sole physical custody of the kids.
Insiders say Pitt is displeased with the decision, but did little to fight it, in part because he hopes to expedite the divorce for the sake of his kids - and in part because the outcome was somewhat inevitable:
“Brad was in an impossible situation," famed divorce attorney Raoul Felder recently told Radar Online.
"No matter what happened, there was nothing positive in it for him.”
“The charges that have been made against him may or may not be based in fact. We still don’t know — and Angelina’s played him like a violin."
Sources close to Jolie say that she left Brad in order to remove her kids from what she believed was a dangerous situation.
Now, according to People magazine, she's taken further steps to protect her kids by enrolling them in therapy:
“It’s been a traumatic situation," one insider tells the magazine.
The source says that immediately after the mid-flight altercation that resulted in Pitt being investigated for child abuse, Angie moved into an LA rental home along with her kids, some friends, and her brother, James Haven.
“She did what she felt she had to do to protect the safety of the kids,” says the insider.
The source adds that the children feel cooped up in the house, but Jolie sees little choice but to keep them at home:
“They didn’t leave the rental house for days. It was hard for all of them.
"They are used to more activities and more entertainment so it’s difficult for them to just stay at the house. The younger kids don’t understand what’s going on.”
As for their father, a member of Pitt's camp says the actor is absolutely devastated by the events of the past three weeks:
“[Brad] been absolutely devastated and heartbroken by the events of the past several weeks, both in terms of how those events have been wrongfully portrayed and how they have threatened to jeopardize his family’s ability to heal and move forward.”
Unfortunately, it may be quite some time before the media attention dies down and the healing can begin.
The last thing we heard about the sordid saga that is Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce, they'd reached a temporary settlement.
According to the terms of the settlement, which will last three weeks, Angelina gets full custody of the kids while Brad gets visitation rights -- but a therapist has to be present for the first visit, and the therapist will decide if Brad's future visits should be supervised or unsupervised.
Brad has to undergo random drug testing because, as we've heard, Angelina believes Brad has been drinking too much and smoking too much weed.
And finally, the whole family has to get a whole lot of therapy.
The word is that all of this came about because of an incident on a plane in which Brad is said to have attacked their oldest son, Maddox, in some way.
There's been a lot of confusion as to what exactly happened, but whatever it was, it was enough for witness to contact authorities.
But now we're hearing more details about what went down on that plane.
And what's more, we're hearing about what Angelina wants to happen to Brad in the aftermath of the incident.
According to sources on Angelina's side who spoke with TMZ, she told the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services that Brad actually struck Maddox in the face.
Sources close to Brad maintain that he simply lunged at Maddox and accidentally hit him when Angelina got in between them.
But the point is that, whatever happened, Angelina is reportedly refusing to cooperate with any actions to file charges against Brad.
Yeah, this is an interesting turn of events.
As it stands now, authorities can determine whether or not to charge Brad with child abuse. And if they decide to go after him, Angelina will refuse to help them.
It's kind of strange that Angelina would take this stance, since she was obviously disturbed by Brad's actions.
But this report claims that Angelina is firm -- Brad shouldn't be prosecuted.
She's said to be more concerned with "protecting her kids" instead of with "punishing Brad."
And that makes sense, right?
If Brad were to be charged with child abuse, it wouldn't be good for him, to say the least. And it would have to be hard on the kids to see their father like that.
Maybe he deserves to be prosecuted, maybe he doesn't. It's hard to say without knowing all the details.
But either way, what a sad, sad situation this is.
Brad Pitt might be a grown adult man out of control, but it’s still Angelina Jolie’s fault! She’s been a bitch in the past and the dissolution of her marriage after years and years of tragedy is just karmic retribution.
You know because one time in 2012, she wasn’t nice to George Clooney’s flavor of the month, Stacy Keibler:
In his pre-Amal days, George Clooney and his then-girlfriend of six months Stacy Keibler hopped on a private jet with the now-estranged couple to travel from L.A. to the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
Angelina refused to acknowledge that Stacy was even on the plane. Angelina went out of her way to ignore her, from takeoff to landing. She would not even look Stacy’s way. She was not having it!
Sometimes you just want to just chill out and not say a word to anyone! It’s hard work being nice. Angie was tired from saving the world! But allegedly, this is a part of a pattern. A Jolie-Pitt source came to say:
Angelina was not engaging with Brad’s friends or their wives … particularly in the last couple of years.
A woman who doesn’t smile all the day? Gosh, what a nightmare! And all this together has led to a rough year for the couple, so when Brad lashed out at Maddox on that private jet, it was the last private jet incident the pair could bare. An argument escalated on the plane that night. It was a 14-h0ur flight and tensions were high:
When Maddox intervened to protect Angelina, Brad got up in his face and screamed at him to mind his own business.
And apparently there’s footage of it all. Brad may have even hurt the poor plane!
Our parents couldn’t stay together so we looked to Brangelina for support. They were what we aspired to grow into–a partnership unbreakable, held together by the glue of six very lucky children. But that’s over now. We’re left with so many questions. Whyyyyyyyy? How could this happen? Can they get through this?
The divorce filings are purposely vague, citing “anger issues,” but then Thursday we were met with allegations of child abuse. No way, we thought, it’s impossible. For the first time, Brad’s team has spoken as to what really happened. The couple were on their private plane:
He was drunk, and there was an argument between him and Angelina, [one of the couple’s older children, Maddox] got caught in the middle, literally. He stepped in front of Brad. There was a parent-child argument which was not handled in the right way and escalated more than it should have.
And a marriage ended on that plane. That was it. But here’s the catch. It’s all on video. Brad was reportedly a mess, but never physical. Because the fight took place in the air, the FBI is currently investigating. Maybe we’ll know more. Maybe we won’t. Maybe this is all just a dream.
It's been hard to keep up with the endless rumors surrounding Angelina Jolie's decision to file for divorce from Brad Pitt - partly because there are just so many of them, but also because the whole thing is just so very sad.
The main story, of course, is the story of Brad's alleged child abuse, and then there was the rumor that Brad cheated on Angelina with Marion Cotillard.
There are also the theories about Brad's reported substance abuse issues, and on and on.
But there's a new report now ... grab your tissues, because your heart and your tear ducts will surely struggle with this.
Radar reports that Brangelina was "fine" until 2014, when she directed "Unbroken."
"It seemed like Angelina thought it didn't get quite the reception she had expected," an insider claims. "And that was just the beginning of the end for them."
This source goes on to say that their struggles continued with last year's "By The Sea," the movie that Angelina directed and starred in, along with Brad -- the movie the source calls "a complete disaster."
"By The Sea," if you'll remember, didn't do too well in the box office, nor was it a hit with critics.
Its failure, the source says, was "the real reason that Angie moved to London. After the movie tanked, she wanted to get out of Hollywood."
Unfortunately, this report purports that "Brad never really made the move to London with her."
Apparently "Angelina moved there with the kids to focus on her humanitarian efforts," but Brad "never wanted to go to London," and the move "was her idea" in the first place.
And that's that.
This version of events -- which, by the way, is said to be from a "pal" of Brad's -- is pretty mellow compared to some of the other things we've heard this week.
According to this story, Angelina couldn't take a couple of career hits, so she pulled away from Brad, and they sort of drifted apart. A common story, but a sad one nonetheless.
It's pretty interesting and convenient how this little tale tries to place the blame on Angelina though, right?
Look, facts are facts, and the facts here -- the actual facts, not fun little stories like this -- are pretty clear.
Brad did something on that plane to his oldest child, Maddox, and it upset Angelina enough for her to file for divorce almost immediately afterwards.
Maybe it was abusive, maybe it wasn't, but whatever it was was enough to make Angelina bring an end to a relationship that had lasted more than a decade.
And maybe she did pull away from Brad after a couple of her movies didn't do as well as she'd hoped, but does that excuse whatever it was exactly that Brad did? Probably not.
So here's an idea: instead of thinking up fun and creative ways in which we can twist this story to make it Angelina's fault, why don't we just buck up and admit that maybe Brad isn't America's handsomest sweetheart after all?
