The swirling rumours of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce refuse to die down. For the last few months, there have been a series of reports alleging that the Hollywood couple has split after 11 years of being together.
The latest is that Brad has given the shaft to Top Gear. Daily Mail recently reported that the 52-year-old Hollywood star pulled out of the auto show’s much touted return at the last moment.
Naming Brad as the star in question, the paper quoted a source as saying, “Chris Evans and the new team had lined up a Hollywood heavyweight for the hotly-anticipated return, though he was left scrabbling around for a replacement this week due to filming schedules.”
Design and Trend magazine has now alleged that the “raging war between the couple” is the reason for the pull out. “They’re at war over who’s looking after the kids since that agreement got blown out the window with her desire to turn her directing career into a success after several failures,” a source was quoted in Radar magazine. “This is tearing them apart, but Brad’s got no choice. He’s done more than enough to help her directing career, even risking his own reputation in her schmaltzy flop By the Sea, and now it’s time to get back to work.”
Buzz also suggests that Angelina’s drastic weight loss and her “dark demons” are taking a toll on the marriage. “Her wild lifestyle when she was younger and her intense surgeries to avoid getting breast and ovarian cancer have taken a toll on her as a person and a life partner. Some of her issues force her to retreat into isolation and pull away from Brad and the kids. It is impossible to be entirely free from who she once was,” a source is quoted as saying.
