The separation issues continue to plague Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie long after reports of their divorce initially broke. Latest news tells us that the actress has found a new way to cope; that is, smoking excessive amounts of cigarettes to help her get through their widely-reported custody battle.
A report has recently circulated saying that Angelina Jolie had been “smoking herself to death,” possibly a result of the stress brought on by the recent custody troubles. She had been chain-smoking to the point of being compared to a “chimney.” The former wife of Brad Pitt now goes through “two packs of cigarettes a day,” the supposed source claims.
Angelina Jolie Still Haunted by Eating Disorder?
This latest news goes on to say that the actress-directress had been skipping meals. While this is not new since Jolie had been linked to reports of eating disorders before, it becomes a more severe health concern when she pairs it with heavy smoking.
Chain-Smoking Rumors Debunked by Some Sources
However, Gossip Cop, a website dedicated to debunking celebrity rumors, claimed that the reports are not true. Their claim is based on a source of their own that had close ties to the actress, as they say. Their source said that in all the time they spent with the actress, never did they smell even a hint of cigarette smoke.
The site goes on to say that this is not the first time that rumors like these were made up and in turn debunked. There was also a time when Jolie was accused of using not only cigarettes but also illegal drugs to get through the difficulties that the separation from Pitt brought her.
There was no solid evidence for the confirmation or debunking of the latest news, as most reports have been relying solely on their unnamed “sources.” What is sure is that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt is still struggling through the aftermath of the divorce, and they appear to be trying to do what is best for their children, despite the situation.
