    And now we know TMZ is Team Angie.

  • sera

    I do not believe that Angie was doing anything but protecting her children. Please lets not make this a Brad Vs Angie thing. Although Brad always seems to come out smelling like a rose while Angie catches all the flack.

  • Khazija

    You do not know that and it is a shame that people are being mislead by this. I have my own sources ( which will be kept private), he did not get physical with any of the children. He does not have a serious drinking problem though the verbal confrontation did occur while he was drinking. This entire thing has been spun around.

    That is not true. People need to stop spreading that contradictory myth. Brad has never come off smelling like a rose, he has been plagued with smear campaigns for over a decade. His ex infamously used that line in her Vanity Fair interview despite the fact that most of the world was adoring/sympathizing with her ( over false accusations of cheating which most people believe to this day) and despite the fact that his reputation was destroyed over that with the majority of people maligning him. Most of the hate and blame has always been directed towards him.

    The majority of the commentary has been vilifying him over false allegations yet women keep playing that faux feminist card when he is the one being primarily attacked everywhere. It a shame that it has escalated to this level but we know Angelina wants sole custody of the children. This incident is being greatly exaggerated. It is a shame that the children are being used here and are being played against their father.

  • VanityInsecurity

    way to try & slander this mans name. Angelina should be ashamed of herself for putting the story out there that Brad has anger issues. She knew very well how the media works she PR’d their whole relationship, she manipulated this into existence. Who ever thinks shes an angel in this, you are damn delusional. She leaked this BS to TMZ.

    Angelina did not start the rumors. Everyone saw the divorce papers and just assumed. Now of course people are blaming everything on her as usual. Supposedly Brad is happy again and Angelina is the wicked one. I am so sorry for her. This is not what she wanted for herself or her kids. As usual he will come out smelling like a rose.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Ive been an Angie fan since Hackers.. stop being blind cus you’re a fan.

  • Dannae Arthis

    Hi Guys ! We feel sorry that Brad and Angie story ending. But you have other version about Marion Cotillard than DM.

  • Dannae Arthis

    Actually, Marion Cotillard promotes her last movie “Juste la fin du monde”, movie directed by French Canadian Xavier Dolan. Since several weeks, she was very busy to do the promotion in Canada (cf. TIFF) and in France and Belgium.
    In fact, no movies are bankable in Europe since 8 weeks. The last one was Suicide Squad.

  • sera

    Angie did not spread the rumors. People gleaned all this garbage from reading the divorce papers. Also Angie would never do anything to hurt the father of her kids. I can not speak for the tabloids and gossip mongers. I am still a fan and from before Hackers.

  • Dannae Arthis

    The cast of the movie “Juste la fin du monde” did a long promotion and work since nearly a month on it.

  • Dannae Arthis

    We were surprise in France by Marion Cotillard “Affair” because she was in a middle of the promotion of her last movie.

  • VanityInsecurity

    wtf? she already hurt his reputation by saying he has anger issues & claiming he’s an unfit father. so wtf are you talking about..do you even know?

  • Dannae Arthis

    Coincidence or not. Marion Cotillard movie hits the movie theater in French spoken area just day after Angie / Brad split and the French Affair. What do you think ?

  • AeeJay

    you are one delusional fan.

  • AeeJay

    some ppl just don’t get it. Angie could have done this real quiet. without all the finger wagging/pointing. She wants full custody & would need a lot of proof in order to take Pitt’s rights away from him. she has no shot in the dark.

  • VanityInsecurity

    there is no affair Cotillard is with Canet.

  • HG

    I’ve been a brad fan since Thelma and Louise and I smell something fishy here myself . Good thing is kids are old enough to talk and if he didn’t abuse them then they get a say if they want more time with dad or they will resent her for a long time . That being said if he does have alcohol and weed issues around the kids he needs to get help before having them alone without supervision.

  • Dannae Arthis

    Angie, crashed the movie promotion.

  • HG

    I’m sadly leaning toward her camp leaked this to tmz as well , it’s like saying Hillary has done nothing wrong when we see the train wreck she’s thrown in our faces and still live in denial . Tmz is totally team Angie!!

  • HG

    Well,it takes two to tango and brad and Angie were going at it like energizer bunnies on the smith set in their trailers so don’t doubt if we had a remake on this set as well.

  • Khazija

    I think Angelina will make sure that the kids will take her side considering Brad was angry at the time. She has already isolated them from him. It is gross how this is being twisted and exaggerated. He didn’t hit any of the children. The rant was towards her, not them.
    He doesn’t have a serious alcohol or drug problem either.

    He lost his temper after years of tension/arguments and now he is going to pay penance for it by being painted as the villain. Most people are automatically taking Angelina’s side just like they did with Aniston by falling for allegations/smearing. This is disturbing to witness. The media has been endless with their deceitful and nasty articles.

  • HG

    Look kids are pure at heart and naive but they always remember who was there for them, no matter how it was when he lost his temper they still love him and will feel the void and start questioning their mom, it’s life and she will have to listen to them or she will get another Madonna and rocko situation on her hands .

  • Khazija

    That is a lie. That was a terrible rumor that was denied. It was the National Enquirer who printed garbage about hooking up in trailers. Then his entire breakup and their subsequent relationship was misportrayed that way.

    At the time, everybody involved was denying the affair including Aniston. There was even sources from the set and Doug Liman denying the affair. Even Vince Vaughn said he didn’t see anything inappropriate. The media, over time, got rid of those articles/confirmations while spreading misquotes or anything to validate their fake scandal.

    The media right now, is circulating a trashy article LYING about Angelina’s Vogue interview. She denied the affair and her comments about the working relationship were misquoted out of context. Brad clarified repeatedly there was no dastardly affair each time the media pulled this move.

    Anyway, debating about this seems hopeless considering Pitt-Jolie are over now. I know Brad will be tainted with these lies forever.

  • Khazija

    There was NO affair with Brad and Marion. Again, people are becoming fixated with false accusations of an affair that has no evidence or confirmations behind it. The media is repeating themselves.

    Marion is in a relationship and is pregnant with Canet’s baby. Brad wouldn’t make the same mistake of rebounding with his most recent co-star amid allegations twice.

  • Khazija

    That Page Six story was garbage. The media is obsessed with their fake, Brad is a cad narrative. He never cheated.

    All parties denied this and there is no evidence but leave it to people to become obsessed with fictional affairs that never happened.

  • Dannae Arthis

    Of course, this story is totally fake between Marion & Brad. But, Marion last movie hits theater on Wednesday. And all this garbage crash the movie at box office.

  • Khazija

    Children can be easily manipulated against their father especially if they are upset with their father if he lost his temper or hurt their feelings even if it was one isolated incident. Angelina has exaggerated this incident to the media. She positioned herself as the “nice” one who never yells while Brad gets the heat for being the stricter one. She is using them as pawns here.

    Angelina’s team is already leaking that this case has been referred to the FBI. I am scared for the children and for Brad.

    Brad was such a good husband and devoted father for so long but an incident that she is misportraying/blowing out of proportion so she can get the upper hand in divorce proceedings is going to destroy him.

    Angelina is telling her children what to do and say.

  • Liverwurst

    I don’t know how many of you on here are parents but let me tell you: You will lose patience with a child or teen. They will need correction and reprovement or will turn out like Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton. It is LEGAL in all 50 States to verbally or physically discipline your own child (unless medical treatment was needed obviously!!) That discipline is 100% up to the parent even if both parents disagree (child rearing differences ranks 3rd reason of divorce in the US)

  • AK

    these gonna be so bad .. i really feel sorry for everyone :(

  • doubtful

    Her team of people reported the “incident” to the FBI. Seems Angie’s using the proverbial family abuse scenario to deflect her rage and jealousy onto Brad for alleged indiscretions with other women. Maddox isn’t the reason for the divorce. That much is obvious.

  • doubtful

    She did start the rumors (using HER team on HER private airplane to stoke the fire during a heated argument with Brad where Maddox stepped in) And in reality the divorce started right AFTER SHE hired HER private detective to spy on what she assumed was an affair between Brad and Marion. Angelina is a great actress but her control issues and jealousy have made this a public media debacle. It backfired on her and it’s her own fault. She’s hardly the victim.
