From where shall I get all of my celebrity signed off on rosé wine now? Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are deep in the throes of drama-free (*chuckle*) divorcing and the next piece of their previous life together to go will be their $60 million dollar estate and vineyard in Correns, France. UsWeekly is reporting that Brad and Angie have put Château Miraval up for sale. I like to drink wine. Does anyone have $60 million on them?
Brad Pitt Isn’t Responding To Angelina Jolie’s Divorce Petition Because He Doesn’t Want To Cause Drama
Brad Pitt had a deadline to respond to the divorce papers Angelina Jolie filed a month ago. That deadline was Wednesday, the same say Brad finally had some therapist-supervised one-on-one time with Maddox. Brad Pitt missed that deadline, but it’s not because he went home after his visit, cracked a 6-pack of Keystone, and fell asleep during a Love At First Swipe marathon on the couch. TMZ says Brad missed that deadline on purpose, because he has no plans to ever file a legal response.
Yesterday, we learned that since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce, Brad Pitt has visited with the child army twice and neither time included 15-year-old Maddox. Maddox clearly needed some time before he was mentally ready to make small talk with the reason why he’ll always feel a little tense when he sees the bar cart on an airplane. TMZ says that Maddox was finally ready to meet with Brad, and that meeting happened yesterday afternoon.
Sources say that Brad and Maddox’s meeting was in the presence of a therapist. That’s a whole lot different than what I pictured, which was Brad pulling up to Angelina Jolie’s Malibu rental on his motorcycle and grunting, “Hey kid, how you holding up?” while lighting a match for his cigarette with his thumbnail.
There was apparently a plan in place for Brad and Maddox to get together earlier than yesterday, but the therapist felt the timing wasn’t right. Even though Angelina is rumored to be in a bunker with her legal team trying to find new ways to take down Brad in court, the source claims she was fully on board with him meeting with Maddox, because she wants her kids to have both a mother and father in their lives.
Hmmmmm, I wonder who leaked this story? Normally therapists keep that shit private, so I’m curious who dropped the info into TMZ’s inbox. If it was Angelina’s side, then I applaud their restraint for not adding in a part about Brad showing up 10 minutes late smelling like the inside of Snoop Dogg’s tour bus and that he swiped a copy of Psychology Today from the waiting room on his way out.
It’s been a month since Webster’s dictionary removed the word “love” forever since it doesn’t exist anymore now that Brangelina is broken. Since then, St. Angie Jolie’s super team of Pitt fighters and Brad Pitt’s team (Jacques Jolie-Pitt and LegalZoom) have been trying to work out a custody agreement that they both can deal with. The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services recommended a temporary custody agreement, which they both agreed to. The child army has been living with Angie full-time for the past three weeks and Brad got to visit them a couple of times. That temporary agreement expires tomorrow, and People says that shit is still strained and they haven’t come up with a permanent custody agreement. I would say that they should settle it the highly professional way, with a Rock, Paper, Scissors battle, but that wouldn’t work since Brad would probably stop every 2 seconds to say, “How do I make rock again?”
It’s been almost a month since the news broke that Angelina Jolie didn’t want to be married to Brad Pitt anymore. But a former employee of theirs decided to take us on a stroll down memory lane with some stories from when they were still together. One of Brangelina’s former bodyguards, Mark “Billy” Billingham, the guy seen holding Zahara Jolie-Pitt recently spoke to The Sun about the good ol’ Brangelina days.
TMZ reports that the FBI never opened up a case against Brad Pitt for reportedly laying hands on his son Maddox, 15, during the alleged Flight 666 incident. In fact, there was reportedly nothing to close.
Brad allegedly got aggressive with Maddox after the kid got between dad and mom on board their private jet during a fuel stop in Minnesota. Last weekend, it was reported that Angelina wouldn’t assist law enforcement in any sort of investigation against Brad for child abuse. And according to TMZ, the FBI believe that handing over the case to them was a waste of time.
Well-placed law enforcement sources tell us the FBI never opened an investigation, and say the matter should never have even been referred to the agency.
The Bureau’s official position is that they are still fact-gathering, though they are not calling it an investigation. Behind the scenes, we’re told the case will go nowhere.
L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services is still investigating.
Angie currently has full physical custody of the kids, with her brother James Haven acting as nanny. Now that Brad’s off the hook, maybe he can emerge from his purple haze and get to stepping on recruiting his own Justice League of legals. Angie’s got almost the entire Los Angeles County Bar Association and most of the gals over at the UN. Brad’s got Melissa Etheridge.
