IT was supposed to be the love story of the new millennium — up there with Romeo and Juliet, Scarlett and Rhett, and Dani and Jack from Love Island.* Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were the caring, sharing, rainbow family that was going to last for ever and ever. Somewhere down the line this relationship buckled, fractured and has now imploded into a bitter legal fight that boiled over in court this week. I expected better of these two. Despite the fact Brad dumped his girl-next-door first wife, Jennifer Aniston, for his sexy, smouldering Mr & Mrs Smith co-star Angelina in 2005, I really thought “Brangelina” would go the distance. In the unlikely event the fairy-tale romance turned sour, I believed they would handle the whole thing with dignity and respect for one another. After all, they have six children together and seemed the kind of parents, who would not want to drag their kids through a messy divorce case or custody battle. Well, I was wrong about the messy … [Read more...] about I expected better from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie than a bitter divorce battle

Since September 2016, when Oscar-winner Jolie began divorce proceedings against her husband of two years, whom she had been with for a total of 12, things were clearly acrimonious between from the get-go. There was a well-documented, but still unclear, "incident" with 16-year-old son Maddox aboard a private plane which is said to have prompted her decision to file, and the Department of Child and Family Services and FBI got involved. "There was a parent-child argument which was not handled in the right way and escalated more than it should have," a source told People at the time. "He is emphatic that it did not reach the level of physical abuse, that no one was physically harmed. He did not hit his child in the face in any way. He did not do that; he is emphatic about that. He put his hands on him, yes, because the confrontation was spiraling out of control." In an interview six months alter, he gave an interview to GQ detailing his experience, saying he was "really on my back" when … [Read more...] about Explainer: What is the latest (and why it’s happening) with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s very dramatic divorce?
PREPARE for your mind to be completely blown, after Twitter fans went into overdrive today over a resurfaced newspaper cutting of Brad Pitt with his former partners. The image shows the 54-year-old appearing scarily similar to his at-the-time girlfriends. And we have to admit, it certainly looks like Brad has been taking "met his match" to a whole new level. The hilarious images were brought to light by Twitter user Sarah McGonagall who said: "I saw this news article about Brad Pitt and now I can't stop thinking about it." And now, social media users have gone into meltdown over the snaps, believing Brad purposely transforms himself to look like his partners. One user said: "I cant believe I have only just seen this... my mind is blown" while another admitted: "I am never going to stop thinking about this..." One user asked: "Do you think he wants to be the women he falls for? Hmmm". We can't believe we didn't notice the uncanny snaps earlier. Which one is your favourite? … [Read more...] about Brad Pitt models himself on whoever he is dating – and here’s the proof
The British public woke up this morning to two mindblowing pieces of celebrity news: pop stars Cheryl (known only as Cheryl after cycling through Tweedy, Cole and Fernandez-Versini in quick succession, then realising she’s too famous to need a surname anyway) and Liam Payne have officially parted ways; and character comedian Jacob Rees-Mogg (at least that’s how I choose to see him, for the sake of my own sanity) has threatened to bring down the government. Both probably have something to do with Brexit, because everything does nowadays, but no one seemed to even be able to muster a shrug about Cheryl and Liam, recent parents to one-year-old Bear. Usually celebrity splits provoke some superfan sadness, but this time the entirety of low-brow Twitter (of which I am a proud and paid-up member) has been united in one collective shrug. “Is anyone surprised?” was the general sentiment. Of course no one’s surprised. No one is surprised because literally no person … [Read more...] about Opinion: Admit it – you wanted Cheryl and Liam Payne to split up
Last year, all the rosé wine gossip surrounded Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Château Miraval. Would it survive the divorce? It did, and there are good supplies in again this year. For now, however, Whispering Angel, a decade-long hit with New York’s Hamptons set, is the star. It is a meaty rosé with spice and bite, built around Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, there is even an aniseed hint. Simply gorgeous; it will convert even the most resistant to its charms.
