Of all the celebrity divorces of 2018, probably the last one I thought might turn dramatic is the divorce of Geena Davis from her husband of almost 17 years Dr. Reza Jarrahy. The most drama I could have predicted would be Geena showing up 4 minutes late to her lawyer’s office to sign official split documents after scrambling to find a parking spot. Instead things have gotten a bit dramatic, because he might not even be her husband!
Divorce attorney to the stars Laura Wasser is officially off Angelina Jolie’s payroll. I guess the dust has settled enough at this point where Angie felt she could catch a breath (the thready rasp of an injured bird) long enough to announce what everybody already knew. People confirms that Laura is no longer representing Angie and that San Francisco-based lawyer Samantha Bley Dejean, whom she brought in a month ago, will continue on as lead counsel. For the sake of the children, of course.
Globetrotting to former Himalayan landmine fields doesn’t come cheap since Spirit doesn’t exactly fly there, and Angelina Jolie is finding this out the hard way during her slugfest of a divorce proceeding with Brad Pitt. When they were married, they seemed like they had more money than the U.S. Mint, but I guess flying solo is a separate story. Money is apparently tight around the shrine of St. Angie! This is the part in the fight where Angie plays poor. Continue reading
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have been done since 2015, and after much “will they/won’t they get back together” rumors, she finally filed for divorce in 2017. They live in separate houses and have even started dating other people, but their divorce hasn’t been made official yet and that’s a problem.
According to The Blast, Ben and Jen were recently advised by the Los Angeles Superior Court that their divorce case hasn’t been completed because no final judgement has been filed or entered. They’ve allegedly been warned that if they don’t get moving, the court will throw out their divorce on the basis of delaying prosecution.
Sources say that Ben and Jen have been working out the details and they’re really close to reaching a final settlement, but it’s not known why they haven’t been able to wrap things up. It might have something to do with Jen watching out for Ben’s sobriety.
Jen reportedly waited until Ben had completed his 2017 stint in rehab before filing for divorce. The last time we checked in on this situation, sources said that Jen wasn’t ready to officially sign off on their divorce until she was sure Ben had a handle on his booze issues, and that he could promise to keep their kids away from his new girlfriend Lindsay Shookus. And it sounds like Jen really isn’t in any rush. A source that spoke to People says that the current situation is fine for her at the moment.
“There is no rush here. They continue to figure out ways of working together as a family and this is what works for them. They are doing what’s best for their family.”
The tabloids will probably say that Jen isn’t in a rush to divorce because she CAN’T LET GO OF BEN, and next thing you know there’s rumors about her and Lindsay being Ben’s sister wives. For our sake I hope Jen finalizes their divorce soon, because none of us deserve to see the terrifying image of Ben’s face Photoshopped over Kody Brown’s face on the cover of a Star Magazine.
Ding ding ding, the fight bell has been rung, and it’s time for round 3,894 in the custody battle between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. If I’m to continue with this boxing metaphor, this might be where both Angelina and Brad would touch gloves, before she defiantly spits her mouth guard in his face and has to be pulled away by her trainer. That’s right, this mess has gotten much messier.
Like thousands of other soon to be divorced dads in this country, William Bradley Pitt had to take the day off from work yesterday to go deal with some bullshit. According to Us Weekly, Brad spent several hours yesterday sitting in meetings with his lawyers, working out a response to Angelina Jolie’s latest accusations that he hasn’t been meeting the financial expectations of a handshake, child support agreement the pair supposedly agreed upon. And, according to TMZ, Brad left his lawyers office with a CVS length receipt to the tune of 9 million dollars that says otherwise.
