Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are divorcing, and according to reports, it’s Angelina Jolie who has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. Citing the forever common Hollywood phrase “irreconcilable differences” ( is there any Hollywood couple that hasn’t cited ”irreconcilable difference” in divorce proceedings!). The couple has been married for around 2 years and “known” one another since they both met on the 2003 set of their 2005 action flick ( while Pitt was still married ), Mr and Mrs Smith. According to rumors floating around, there is speculation that the reason that Jolie and Pitt are parting ways is due to cheating on Pitt’s side. Word on the street is that Brad Pitt has been cheating on Angelina Jolie with French actress Marion Cotillard! OH THE HORROR!
This is a Hollywood marriage and the divorce rate among entertainers, actors etc. is much higher that the common everyday people’s divorce rate of 50 something percent. The stress, temptation, long hours working with attractive co-stars, filming in far away locations etc. Overtime, long absences, crazy schedules, temptation and other things take their toll on Hollywood couples. This is why divorce is so very common in Tinseltown.
To speak completely candidly, if you can recall back in the early 2000’s Pitt allegedly cheated on his previous wife Jennifer Aniston with Angelina Jolie. So why is everyone so shocked that it has happened once again and this time with another woman! In my humble opinion, I am not totally surprised that the Jolie-Pitt union has been scattered by another woman. My thing is, if a man cheats on you with another woman and you are the woman that he cheated on with, do not be too shocked if after some time, he does the same thing to you and leaves you for a different woman. As a matter of fact, if a man leaves the woman he is with because he was fooling around with you while STILL with his wife, girlfriend or fiance, – expect him to fool around on you! It’s only a matter of time.
Relationships that stem from selfishness and infidelity rarely last in the long run. Hollywood or not.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have a beautiful family. I hope in this time they can continue co-parenting in peace. For those of you thinking that a married or taken man is a prize, think again. If he leaves her for you, he will one day leave you for another.
This is yet another Hollywood marriage that has bit the dust.
