Where were you the day Angelina Jolie announced that she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt? It is a question that will probably be asked for generations to come, and one that Jennifer Aniston will either be really excited to answer or will stay mum on when it’s brought up.
In a statement released by Jolie, the marriage is over due to irreconcilable differences. According to TMZ, those differences were linked to arguments over their kids, substance abuse and anger. Jolie is seeking physical custody of the couple’s six children, but will allow visitation rights to Pitt. She will not be asking for child support. Supposedly, Pitt has yet to see the children since the news broke, which might be related to the recent rumor that child services is investigating an allegation that Pitt physically abused his oldest son, Maddox.
In the wake of the couple’s divorce, Pitt’s co-star in the upcoming film “Allied,” Marion Cotillard, has responded to cheating allegations. Despite the similarities between Jolie’s and Pitt’s beginnings after his divorce from Aniston and the rumors that Pitt had now fallen for Cotillard on set, Cotillard was quick to stop the story. In a lengthy Instagram caption, Cotillard stood firm on being in love with her long-time boyfriend, and announced that she is pregnant with their second child. She wished the divorcing couple a swift recovery and hopes that they find peace.
While Jolie announced that she would not be commenting and asked for privacy via her attorney, Pitt released a statement for himself.
“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids,” Pitt said.
I hope that someday Jolie and Aniston can sit sipping Smartwater and laugh about all of this because they have both found inner peace. I also hope that I get invited to this gathering.
In happier news, Adam Levine and his wife Behati Prinsloo welcomed their first child on Wednesday, Sept. 21. Levine showed off his daughter, Dusty Rose Levine, on Instagram three days after her birth.
Olivia Wilde, who is expecting her second child with fiancé Jason Sudeikis, announced via Twitter that it will be a girl. She broke the baby news while also endorsing Hillary Clinton. The actress shared Clinton’s latest campaign video, which shows various footage of young girls as sexist comments from Donald Trump play in the background.
“As someone who is about to have a daughter, this hits me deep in my core. #NeverTrump,” Wilde tweeted.
Another famous daughter was caught being adorable via Snapchat on Friday, Sept. 23. North West, daughter of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West, was a flower girl in a recent wedding, according to her mother’s social media posts. The 3-year-old was seen dancing along to Daft Punk and playing with “flower dogs” at the wedding. It’s surprising she didn’t break the internet from cuteness.
“We have the best cast that I think ever has been assembled,” Benioff said, and in my opinion, he’s not wrong. Kit Harington, if you’re reading this, congratulations!
