    Does anyone know where Angelina is living?

  • lurker

    nope,i just hope she is okay,she is a strong woman and will be just fine.i wish both the best

  • bap

    Lurker you think they can work this out? How long will it take to get a quick divorce if Angelina does not want anything?

  • charliehunnamissexonlegs

    Sad. I really liked them together.

  • bap

    I hope Angelina and the children are all right. I hope Jon does not get involved in this with the press.

  • lyric

    Makes me very sad. I’ve always wished the best for them and still do.

  • bap

    Is Angelina in Cambodia?

  • Be kind to one another.

    I feel sorry for their kids.

  • African Girl

    I’m still in shock!!

    Wish them the very best.

  • Visitor

    Maybe he can change his weed smoking habit and they can reconcile.

  • bap

    How do you know that drugs are the reason?

  • bap

    The truth will one day come out. I wish only peace for her and the children.

  • lyric

    I really don’t know bap. Many of you are much better than I at knowing their whereabouts.

  • Whamo

    That’s because they are stalkers and they have embedded chips into the families heads.

  • Dawne

    Angelina is clearing stating it is for the ‘health’ of her children. WTF did he do?

  • Dawne

    He was interviewed and said he was very sad and that if Angie did this it must have been really something.

  • Pimpcessa

    Whatever she can come up with to tell the public…privately, lol.

  • Pimpcessa

    Because her “source” already put that out.

  • Pimpcessa

    Lol. Pop that popcorn honey, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

  • Pimpcessa

    Yep!

  • Pimpcessa

    Girl just can’t keep a man….

  • bap

    Who is her source.

  • bap

    Dawne do you think they can work it out?

  • Pimpcessa

    Probably the same one that Aniston used…or didn’t use, but you all blamed on her.

  • bap

    Angelina does not want his money, she wants it over and done with. She not into drama or pity.

  • Newbfosho

    Brad Pitt did something very terrible for this to happen. His satement shows how shocked he is. I’m sure he already got away with so much that he figured she would never leave him. I wonder if he already did interviews for his lame ass movies. It’s shocking that she didn’t even wait till after his movies were released.

  • Newbfosho

    Exactly.

  • Newbfosho

    Why? He was hardly ever with the, and when he was apparently he was drunk and high. .which is believable – remember when Angelina was in the hospital with twins Brad was at home smoking and drinking with tarrentino

  • Newbfosho

    Brads own old interviews don’t help. Remember when Sahara almost died choking on ice because he was drunk? He said he had to stop then.

  • bap

    Angelina is honest and would not make the claim unless she had evidence.

  • Dawne

    It will be interesting to find out if they have been secretly separated while they tried to work this out. Angelina made it public it involved protecting her kids and I just cannot imagine what Brad might have done or been doing that turned him from a Dad she so admired to one she has to protect her children from………or it may mean that they were fighting and it was affecting the kids; I hope it is more that than some off behaviour by Brad toward the kids. Very, very puzzling.

  • Newbfosho

    Remember when he said himself that he had to stop drinking because one day Sahara almost choked on ice when he was drunk. I wonder if we’ll see one of his kids coming out of the hospital soo

  • Becca

    yes she is in Cambodia..lol

  • Becca

    We all told you this would happen! ont ya listen? We are not trolls after all.

  • Dawne

    She seems very finite. She is not saying they are separating to work through some shite, she is slamming the door it seems.

  • Becca

    dont blame it on Brad…what the heck do you know..?

  • Pimpcessa

    Wonder if she’s still excited to show her kids the movie where mommie and daddy started their affair, lol. While he was still married to his other soul mate, lol… She’s probably burning that disc right now…and that magazine they put out with them as a married couple right after the divorce announcement with his first wife.

  • Newbfosho

    Brad Pitt thinks drinking beer made him a neglectful dad. The ‘Ocean’s Thirteen’ star decided to massively cut down his alcohol intake after seeing his adopted daughter Zahara, two, choke on an ice cube.
    He said: “It’s not easy to be a good father when you’ve had a few drinks.”
    “About a year ago I’d had a couple of beers and my daughter Zahara had this piece of ice that had been dropped on the floor, and she was putting it in her mouth and began to choke on it, and that was it.”
    Pitt added: “You have to be absolutely on top of every situation. The other s**t doesn’t work anymore. When they wake up in the middle of the night you have to be there. And you can’t deal with children when you have a hangover – that’s just a misery!”
    Brad and his long-term partner Angelina Jolie have three adopted children, six-year-old Maddox, three-year-old Pax, and two year-old Zahara, as well as a 16-month-old biological daughter, Shiloh.
    The 43-year-old actor insists his kids find it difficult to cope with having famous parents.
    He explained to Total Film magazine: “It’s odd for my children, man. They have this idea that there’s this sea of people with cameras. This is their idea of the world they live in.”

    His own words. He never stopped drinking

  • Becca

    she has a restraining order..she is looney

  • Dawne

    Toastie, are you here and just not posting?

  • Becca

    who is Sahara?

  • Newbfosho

    I know he said drinking made him a neglectful dad

  • Becca

    how would you know? he would not be shocked if he knew he did something “terrible”..hahah you people..we warned you 12 yrs ago

  • Newbfosho

    My god these freaks are still deleting posts

  • Becca

    We told you that a decade ago

  • Becca

    ahhhhhhhh Dawn..why do you care and no one can answer that..she is crazy and drove him crazy

  • Pimpcessa

    Lol, just in time. The crucifiction of Brad, by Angie fans has begun.

  • Becca

    weed doesn’t have anything to do with it..are you kidding?

  • Pimpcessa

    You have NO idea who would do what. But I knew from the beginning of their affair, that when it ended, you would ALL turn on Brad and still slobber on Angie. Here’s a tissue!

  • Dawne

    I’ll just say this once for the trolls who are being blocked faster than the speed of sound. Aniston was in a dead end marriage for years……..they had big trouble…………he was not into her then and he never will be again. And if you think for one minute he could endure her for ten seconds after living for twelve years with such a smart and accomplished woman, you need to give us what you are on. So save your breath. She is non existent in Brad’s life now and always will be……….if you find some sort of personal glee in a beaufitul family breaking up then have at it. You are a miserable, hateful lot and it behooves you to see it happening to someone else.
