The 49-year-old actor has joined the social networking website Sina Weibo and has already sent out a tweet from his verified account.

“It is the truth. Yup, I’m coming …” Brad wrote on his account, which is currently being followed by over 160,000 people.

Brad‘s tweet alludes that he will be visiting China, where he was reportedly banned from in the 1990s after the country was unhappy with its depiction in the film Seven Years in Tibet.

    .
    TMZ has the twins on their list and it wasn’t $14MIL. It was $12.3MIL. They said all the money was going to the JPF, so all you have to do is look at the 2008 JPF tax return. There were 2 contributions – one from Angie for $6.1MIL and one from Brad for $6.2MIL (or vice versa). What annoyed me was that they didn’t say that Brad and Angie gave away all the money they got and everybody else kept the money for themselves.
    .
    Also, the $4.1MIL for Shiloh was on the Peeps money. There was another $4-5MIL from Hello for UK, Canada & Australia and other publications around the rest of the world. So altogether they gave away $21-22MIL to charity. Meanwhile, JLo bought 2000 pairs of Louboutins with her $2MIL.

    To be honest very much doubt its true but goes to show hoe every News agency has jumped on it :

    Brad Pitt hints at China trip
    (AFP) – 13 minutes ago
    BEIJING — Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt made waves on Monday with his first post on Chinese social media, a cryptic message suggesting he would soon visit the country.
    “It is the truth. Yup, I’m coming…”, said the initial entry on the star’s verified account on Sina Weibo, one of China’s hugely popular Twitter-like microblogs.
    It was unclear if the message from the star of “Fight Club”, “Spy Game”, “Ocean’s Eleven” and other films meant that he would be physically coming to China.
    Various Internet movie sites say Pitt was banned from entering the country after starring in “Seven Years in Tibet”.
    In 1997, the state-run China Daily said that Hollywood would “never be forgiven” for a series of films on the region, specifically citing Pitt’s movie, along with Richard Gere’s “Red Corner” and “Kundun”, directed by Martin Scorsese.
    China has long waged a campaign against Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, whom Beijing accuses of seeking independence for the troubled region, and the paper said the films “totally distorted historical facts and events”.
    But Pitt’s Weibo account was an instant hit on Monday, drawing more than 100,000 followers within six hours of his first post.
    “Bring Jolie along”, said one comment, referring to Pitt’s glamorous partner actress Angelina Jolie.
    China imposes strict controls on the Internet and blocks sites popular in the West such as such as Twitter and Facebook.

    All the ladies who make up Sina Weibo’s 400 million registered users take note: Brad Pitt has just joined Weibo. The movie star’s verified account (here) saw its first post at noon today:

    It is the truth. Yup, I’m coming…

    In the space of just two hours since that post, Pitt’s first missive has had 8,000 comments and 20,000 reposts on Weibo. The front half of Brangelina has a whopping 73,000 fans already.

    Although lots of celebrities from around the globe have joined Sina Weibo – mostly for social marketing purposes, Brad Pitt is perhaps the most controversial of all these. No, not because of his very awkward and stagey new ad for Chanel, but due to the fact that Brad Pitt is supposedly banned from ever entering China after his starring role in the 1997 movie Seven Years in Tibet, which was deemed by authorities in Beijing to have been too sympathetic to the exiled Dalai Lama.

    It’s not clear why Pitt has joined Weibo at this specific time. It’s most likely driven by marketing concerns, either for an upcoming movie (IMDB indicates that Pitt has four movies in post-production at this time), or for a brand that he represents. Perhaps Chanel.

    In the past we’ve seen Tom Cruise join Sina Weibo, followed a while later by the Harry Potter actress Emma Watson.

    (Hat-tip to @MissXQ on Twitter for spotting this)

    Remember huh, my dear Rose I very much doubt it, when he has the most beautiful women besides him every morning, day & night besides him , he my dear counts his blessings and those 6 precious children he’s has got from her .So my guess is he most definitely hasn’t got time to remember what happened 8 years ago. Any way people only remember good times rose no one looks back at bad times. Good riddance to dead wood
    Also remember Rose brad don’t look back lol

    George Clooney is planning a road trip with his friend Rande Gerber.
    The ‘Monuments Men’ actor and Cindy Crawford’s businessman husband will be making stops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas and Miami as they travel around the US to launch their own drinks brand Casamigos Tequila.
    A source told the New York Post’s Page Six: “George and Rande came up with the idea of creating their own house tequila years ago when they both built houses in Mexico. They have been working with a master distiller ever since to create the ultimate blend. The tequila was supposed to just be for them and their friends, but after the success of Rande’s Caliche Rum, they decided to go for it.”
    George was recently on vacation in Mexico with his girlfriend Stacy Keibler, where they shared a private dinner with Jennifer Aniston and her fiance Justin Theroux, 40.
    The group – who were last spotted together in June, boarding a private jet in Switzerland – dined at the luxurious El Dorado resort together.
    Prior to that George had not been spotted out with Jennifer for several years following her divorce from Brad Pitt, 49, in 2005.
    George and Stacy shared a private jet with Brad and his fiancee Angelina Jolie in January for a flight from Los Angeles to Palm Springs.
    However Stacy and Angelina apparently didn’t get on well.
    A source previously said: “Angelina refused to acknowledge that Stacy was even on the plane. Angelina went out of her way to ignore her, from takeoff to landing. She would not even look Stacy’s way. She was not having it!”

    Another article on celebrity dirty laundry
    Jennifer Aniston is dropping movies left and right all so she won’t have to leave fiance Justin Theroux’s side. Maybe she finally realized that the majority of movies she signs on for suck anyway? Or maybe she’s learning from her past mistake and not letting her significant other stray too far away. You know… in case Angelina Jolie is sniffing around.
    Of course she’s telling everyone her reluctance to stay away from Justin and work on the ironically titled “Miss You Already” in London has more to do with wedding planning than cheating insecurities.
    “There were personal reasons,” says a movie source. “She has to prepare for her wedding. Justin is staying Stateside and she doesn’t want to be away from him. The film company was also unable to find the right British actor to appear alongside her.”
    I’ve heard Jennifer was clingy but this is a little ridiculous. She’s pulled out of two movies for this guy now. Maybe she’s over it. Maybe she just wants to be happy and get pregnant (which would explain why she doesn’t want to stay away. Ovulation only happens 1-2 days out of the month after all). But do you picture Jennifer as a bridezilla? I never did. I always thought Brad was in charge of their last wedding and she just went along with whatever he wanted. Perhaps Justin couldn’t care less so he’s forcing Jennifer to actually stop toking on the couch long enough to come up with a theme and she’s probably frazzled by all the details. No wonder she can’t work at the same time!
    Still… I always have a weird feeling about people who can’t travel apart or spend any time away from each other. It’s not normal. They’ve been together for two years. Leave him be for a couple of weeks! On the other hand, London is far and it’s not like Jennifer needs the money. At this point it almost seems like acting is just something Jennifer does to pass time when she’s not laying out in Mexico. Now that she has Justin to occupy her, she doesn’t need the huge paychecks and horrible reviews. As long as he doesn’t mind the ball and chain following him from set to set then have at it Jen!
    Do you think Jennifer Aniston fears being away from her fiance? Would Justin Theroux cheat while away at work? I doubt it. He’s got too good of a thing going. Still… you can’t harp on the girl for having those kind of worries.

    Another one:
    Is that kind of like a backhanded apology? You know Brad, I forgive you for leaving me for that Venus Flytrap but I’m over it now. Besides, you did me a favor anyway. Justin is so much better in the sack than you are!
    Ughhhh… you’re welcome?
    That’s the latest coming out of Jennifer Aniston’s camp the Jennifer Aniston rumor mill. Apparently Jennifer is so happy (have you heard?!) that she’s trying to put her demons with Brad and Angelina Jolie behind her and even wrote Brad a lovely little note addressing the old ass issue.

    Every one please be careful of virusis FF TROLLS have gone made as usual they are already on sucide watch due to what happened on 7th january 2005 when Ticky got dumped & kicked to the curb with a divorce so close your windows as trolls are screaming in the ocean

  • Were the morons

    Don’t the trolls realize that just because one is married doesn’t make it official. There are so many doomed marriages in Hollywood that its not even funny. Brad and Angie are official in my book; especially since their relationship lasted longer than 90% of Hollywood marriages! Trolls are once again jealous of the JP’s.

  • Samara

    It’s all over the news. I don’t believe it’s Brad though. I do not see the point of him visiting China and annoucing on a Chinese social network. It doesn’t make sense to me. But of course, I can be wrong.
