Another Wednesday means another divorce rumor about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. The couple has constantly been in the tabloids, with various magazines and websites claiming they are splitting. This time around, OK! magazine writes that the stars are going through a $400 million divorce.
The cover features a distraught-looking Jolie. In large, bold letters it reads: “Angie & Brad: $400 million divorce! Destroyed by cheating.” The bullets underneath add: “Jealous rages and couples therapy” and “who will get the kids.”
The magazine touches on Jolie’s heath, which has been subjected to rumor as much as her marriage. Pitt, 52, is fed up with his wife because “she barely eats, she guzzles wine every night, and she smokes constantly,” an insider told OK!, adding that Jolie is “practically emaciated.”
Her emotional health has also suffered. Jolie experiences “terrible mood swings,” and her mate is “exhausted from spending so much energy trying to get her to take better care of herself.”
The magazine also regurgitated the popular rumor that Pitt is having an affair with “Allied” co-star Marion Cotillard. “She must feel like a breath of fresh air to him,” the source said. Jolie “would be furious if Brad and Marion were sleeping together.” Then the apparent bomb: “It’s looking like the only way out of the jealousy and misery is a divorce,” the insider said.
While some might by believe OK! magazine, Gossip Cop, a website that regularly debunks celebrity rumors, deemed the story was phony. “We’re told it’s ‘nonsense,’” Gossip Cop wrote, adding: “We’re exclusively assured the various claims the magazine threw against the wall, hoping some would stick, are wholly unfounded.”
Jolie was appointed as professor at the London School of Economics Monday. “I am looking forward to teaching and to learning from the students as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the United Nations,” she said.
