It has been a cruel year of celebrity break-ups. One that continues to be chronicled, complete with “he-said,” “she-said” media mudslinging dramatics, is the divorce settlement of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. A report recently said that the couple has been fighting over a pricey painting.
The celebrity news site cited details like the painting’s title, The Tower of Katoubia Mosque, which is said to be one of Brad’s gifts to Angelina during happier times. The report indicated that Angelina wants the painting as part of the divorce settlement. The painting is said to be part of the couple’s joint art collection, and one that Brad is fond of, so the publication assumed the World War Z actor will not easily let it go.
That piece of reported detail about the painting that Brad and Angelina are said to be quarreling with was debunked by another online media source that strives to distinguish rumor from factual entertainment reporting.
Deflating Some Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie Post-Divorce Announcement Issues
Over the past few months, since Angelina announced her decision to divorce Brad, tabloids have been unrelenting in reporting a variety of issues linked with the two high-profile celebrities’ decoupling. The contentious divorce had centered mainly on the custody battle over Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s six children.
While there was documentary evidence on what Angelina had filed in connection with the custody of the children, the issue of the “war” over the painting was confirmed as a false report. In fact, much of the issues involving finances and marital property have been worked out.
The media entity that debunked the news over the supposed squabble of Angelina Jolie with her ex-hubby over the pretty painting is the same one that debunked the rumor that Brad Pitt had fallen into the arms of Hollywood actress Kate Hudson. The preposterous news that was churned out by the ill-informed source even stated that Kate sought Jennifer Aniston’s “approval” before getting into a “relationship” with Brad.
