With Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie supposedly on the brink of divorce every week a tabloid magazine comes out, In Touch Weekly put a new spin on the rumor Wednesday. The magazine said Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, who used to be married to each other, were both going to divorce their current spouses at the same time. However, the magazine did not make the leap that Pitt and Aniston would date again.
The sensational cover reads, “Brad & Jen: They’re both divorcing!” The bulleted points beneath the headline promise to tell readers about “Brad’s emotional note to Jen,” “Angie’s jealousy and rage,” “Why Jen’s marriage fell apart after less than one year” and “The big thaw: How Brad and Jen ended years of estrangement.”
Pitt, 52, and Jolie, 41, purportedly aren’t affectionate and don’t communicate, unless it’s about their six children. “Brad and Angelina are completely in divorce mode and at a point where they barely speak to each other unless it’s about the kids,” a source said.
Supposedly, Pitt is turned off by Jolie’s “controlling ways, his worries about her weight loss and health, [and] her jealousy over his two stunning co-stars,” a reference to “Allied” stars Marion Cotillard and Lizzy Caplan.
The future doesn’t bode well for Aniston, 47, and Theroux, 44, either, according to the publication. Their marriage is “doomed” and they “spend far more time apart than they do together,” a source said.
Theroux would rather focus on his career than his marriage, the publication reported. “He doesn’t take their marriage seriously and is neglecting their relationship for his career,” the source said.
Even though the tabloid doesn’t say Pitt and Aniston have hooked up again, it insinuated such a move could happen after their respective divorces. “There are a lot of shippers who would love nothing more than to see Brad and Jen back together,” the anonymous source said. “It would really be the perfect Hollywood ending.” The couple divorced in 2005 after five years of marriage. It was widely suspected Jolie was responsible for the breakup.
Gossip Cop, which regularly dismantles rumors about celebrities, said In Touch Weekly’s story is nothing more than fabricated drama. “We’re exclusively assured there’s no truth to either breakup tale,” the publication wrote Wednesday. “The outlet’s entirely wrong account of events is seemingly just a lame attempt to put the two ex-spouses, Pitt and Aniston, onto one completely false magazine cover.”
