New Report: Jennifer Aniston initiated divorce, not Brad Pitt

Jennifer Aniston

File this one under “Revisionist History.” Or, “Beating the Dead Horse,” depending on which team you’re on. Or perhaps the right heading for this is “Slow News Day for the Enquirer.” The National Enquirer claims it has a source who says, once and for all, that it was Jennifer Aniston who initiated the divorce with Brad Pitt, and not the other way around. In this new report, the source reveals that the couple never recovered from the trauma of an early miscarriage, and by the time Pitt lost his heart to Angelina Jolie, the couple was already done. Of course, “Once and for all” is a term that never applies to the BrangelinAniston story – how the heck do you expect these tabloid publishers to put their kids through college?

NOW IT CAN BE TOLD –the truth about Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s divorce that has been kept secret – until now!

Most fingers point at Angelina Jolie for triggering the Aniston/ Pitt split, but The ENQUIRER has learned that it was Jen who pulled the plug on their 4 1/2-year marriage!

According to an insider, Jen and Brad – who tied the knot in a splashy Malibu wedding in July 2000 – were having problems long before he flipped for Angelina while filming the action flick Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

“Jen was champing at the bit to divorce Brad long before they announced their separation in January 2005,” said an insider. “When Brad revealed the depth of his relationship with Angelina, it was painful for Jen, but she was almost relieved.”

The once-tight golden couple had drifted apart due to career demands and the fallout from a miscarriage that Jen suffered about two years into the marriage, according to the source.

“After Jen lost the baby, she and Brad could never again agree on when they would have kids, and they continued to grow apart,” said the insider.

In the end, Brad’s relationship with Angelina gave Jen an “out” for ending the marriage, said the source.

The couple had no prenuptial agreement, and the divorce was “pretty much a 50/50 California split,” said divorce attorney Seymour Reisman, who has handled numerous high profile and celebrity divorces.

“But Jennifer is the one who wanted out, and she worked it so that Brad was portrayed as the instigator. In the end, she got the sympathy, while Brad got Angelina Jolie and the label of ‘bad guy.'”

[From The National Enquirer]

Well, there you have it: the final word on the Pitt-Aniston marriage. Except for all of the recent comments made by Jennifer herself, which don’t really seem to support the claims this new “source” is making. If Jen was really looking for an out, and was “relieved” by Brad’s affair with Jolie, then why bring it all up again in recent interviews, including the notorious “Uncool” comments made to Vanity Fair?

The reality is, we will never know exactly what happened, no matter how many new “sources” the tabloids dig up. We can speculate all we want – and we certainly have so far. But let’s remember that this divorce happened four years ago. Why would a source hold onto this supposed information that long?

    ummm sure, yet another spin on the divorce. I believe Jen probably did initiate the divorce cause Brad’s nauseating public infatuation with Jolie was humiliating her. I mean he was doing a pretty bad job keeping the affair away from the media much less his wife at the time.

  2. Granger says:

    Oh for pete’s sake, does anyone really care anymore?

  3. Codzilla says:

    Seriously, who gives a f*ck?

  4. Tuxedo says:

    I believe this story actually. I remember that Brad and Jen were rumoured to be on the rocks way before he met Angelina. I also remember the miscarriage story during her marriage with Brad. It does makes sense.

  5. dididi says:

    there was a lainey blind long time ago about why they divorced, and it matches pretty well

  6. Maddie says:

    I bet an asteroid could come hurling to earth and this “Jen, Brad and Angie thing would headline the TV News and legit papers and gossip mags.

  7. suuuuurrrreeee says:

    So, why did she say that Pitt gave up in the Vanity Fair article, but she was the one who wanted to work things out?
    This sounds like a plant by Jen’s camp. Didn’t they recently say that she broke up with Mayer, too? I don’t believe it. It seems obvious that Pitt and Mayer broke up with her. Maybe, Jennifer initiated the divorce first just to prove something, but Brad obviously left her. But who knows, since none of these three have a shred of credibility left to their names. It’s all about THEIR IMAGE and the truth is buried in the dust.

  8. Chiara says:

    “The final word,” … just for today.

  9. diddy says:

    this is the lainey blind

    Old gossip now leaking, courtesy of her BFF – in whose chair she sat after her split, receiving therapy and getting pretty at the same time. That’s what friends are for.

    Only lately her BFF is getting tired of her attitude problem – friendship is apparently on her terms and the BFF is treated alternately as servant and confidante. So since the BFF can be as catty as they come, secrets are starting seep, shedding light on several mysteries, including weight, children, and heartbreak, all pointing to one cause.

    Male hormones???

    According to the BFF, she took male hormones as a way to stay thin. As a result, she miscarried at least once, which is what resulted in the big break – she lost love because she was obsessed with being skinny…so says the BFF. The BFF also confirms that she has since stopped, which is why her body is back to lovely.

    Still…her reputation, or her looks for that matter, won’t be lovely for long if BFF keeps yapping. In many ways, in one very critical way, she needs her buddy more than her buddy needs her.

  10. Mme X says:

    had never heard abt aforementioned miscarriage. If so, that has to have been difficult.

  11. bellab949 says:

    I love the comments, Who gives a f**k, does anyone care anymore. If you and everyone commenting didn’t care, you wouldn’t have read the story.

  12. cleveland says:

    I heard she miscarried because she was taking pills to stay thin, so she wouldn’t get too big. After that, Pitt coldn’t see her in the same light. How sad.

  13. Canuck says:

    Yeah, well if my husband was off being photographed by planted paparazzi on a beach in Africa with Angelina Jolie after claiming nothing was going on, I’d probably initiate the divorce too. Besides this in not new, Sheryl Crow who is Jen’s friend, said this over a year ago, as you reported on your own site in March 2008

  14. Canuck says:

    #11 That’s a really pathetic attempt at spin, just because it doesn’t fit in with the Angie planted view that “Brad left Jen because she didn’t want to have kids”. You should be ashamed of yourself.

  15. kiki says:

    I thought I heard the same thing as to why Brad broke up with Gwyneth P. she lost their baby too on purpose.
    oh well Jen story 5 years after the fact.. now look for another AJ story to sell the tabloids

  16. Ana says:

    I know she has always been thin and still is. But dang she seems to be skinnier than usual in the top pics. Looks a lot better now.

  17. lrm says:

    hey,it’s common when there is ‘adultry’,that the person who is guilty of said act,allows the other person in the marriage to file for divorce,to help them ‘save face’. This has been done about a billion times-I cannot recall off-hand which celebs have done this…perhaps you can,celebitchy? so,i’m betting the marriage was darn near over when he met AJ,but b/c he initiated the divorce privately,and had someone new already,she opted to file publicly,to make it less difficult. makes her look empowered,not like the victim,as much.

  18. sarcra says:

    Since when is NE a reliable source??

  19. lrm says:

    Okay,just wanted to add that i really like her dress in these pics…SO much better than what she’s worn lately…ie,in the last few years. And,for what it’s worth [and I like AJ,so know bias],Pitt looks way more comfortable and relaxed with Anniston than he ever has with Jolie.
    Obviously,he’s got plans with AJ-big plans;they have a family and she’s been quoted as saying as much: their relationship is about having a family.
    Anyway-whatever-I have no preferences personally about their lives-only opinions.

  20. kiki says:

    Jen was fatter when she was younger she lost the weight then began to get acting jobs, landing the FRIENDS gig I would say she definitly has had or has weight issues

  21. lrm says:

    oops=-meant ‘no’ bias,against AJ. I’m not on either side(:

  22. hypocrite says:

    Canuck, you are on a gossip site scolding people who are gossiping. You should be ASHAMED of yourself. Who are you? The morality police? Or, just one of those Aniston nuts who seems to think her sh*t doesn’t stink? Loser!

  23. lisa says:

    Ummm, so??? Who gives a crap about this long-done couple.

  24. KateNonymous says:

    I know that Aniston lost weight, both before starting Friends and during. But does anyone else think that it’s odd how skinny women get when they’re with Brad Pitt, even if they looked great before?

  25. whatever says:

    These pics were taken right before they split. He can’t even look at her, while she’s looking so smug and at her fans. They never really seemed to be on the same page as a couple, if you ask me.

  26. someone says:

    Thats really old news, Brad asked her for a divorce when they went on thier last vacation together in Jan.2005..she filed right after they returned from vaca….

  27. Sauronsarmy says:

    I can now see why these Brangelina/Aniston stories never stop. The comments are always hilarious.

  28. ol says:

    that so tru , Brad has such a influence on his women, they all lose weight so quick and so much, they look uglier, he looks in a sport light..

  29. kiki says:

    you know what was the driving force in the breakup?
    no lie I Think his working with AJ on Mr&Mrs Smith would have just been an flimset fling for both if it werent for Maddox Brad said in an interview they were playing with the kid and he called Brad “daddy” and that was it he and AJ looked into each other eyes and knew it was bigger than both of them. With Brad always saying he wanted kids and a family and Jen not givng him a kid and working all the time, because up to this point he was busy filming all over the world ALONE while she was doing Friends it could have so easily happen he wanted a new life. They say women have bioliogical clocks so do men they want kids before they are too old to play ball with the kid. And in 5 years they got 6 kids. People are always showing you who they are. 5 years ..6 kids. That says A lot

  30. diddy says:

    the gossip romoured for Brad breakup with Gwyneth P was that she cheated on him while making a movie, nothing about losing a baby.

  31. boomchakaboom says:

    Arrrrggggg…Who CARES? Is this the only way JA can get anything written about her? Is she as boring as she seems so they have to keep dredging up this old non-story just to have something to say about her? Damn.

  32. kiki says:

    the rumor was GP aborted because she didnt want to lose a movie role, keep it secret but BP found out and dumped her.
    and it was AJ that said in an interview , not Brad that they were playing on the floor with Maddox with toy cars when out of the blue Mad called Brad ‘ Dad’ it was most defining moment when he decided that we would all be a family.
    I take it by ‘he’ that she meant Maddox decided .
    incidently Mr&Mrs Smith filmed in Feb of 2004 Brad and Jen went on vacation with Courtney Cox and her husband on xmas of 2004 and the following month not even 2 weeks in the new year Brad and Jen announced their divorceing. So the timeline is Bradagelina were together almost a year before officially hooking up and even then they didnt say anything till AJ got pregnant that same year in Oct of 2005 with Shiloh conviently right at the time Brad Pitts divorce from Jen came thru. Well they got lots of kids now. Which is what Brad Pitt has always said he wanted.

  33. Mel says:

    BEATING A DEAD HORSE! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  34. Dirty Martini says:


    Oh sure. Right. Ok.

    ANd this just in:

    PIgs flying over Hollywood. Film at 11.

  35. Jess says:

    Who cares? Talk of the divorce is going to outlive the length of their entire marriage.


  36. Josephina says:


    According to Jen, she and Brad’s marriage was over by the summer of 2004. They went to a Carribean island over the Christmas holidays, as if previously obligated not to disappoint the company of Courtney Cox and David Arquette. Immediately after the trip in January 2005, they released a statement that they were separating. Two months later in March 2005 Jen began procedures to file for divorce.

    The pictures of Brad and Angie in Africa were AFTER the above events. He chased Angie around the world in order to convince her that they should be a couple with a life to share together. If her wanted to be with Jen, then he would have stayed single and not involve himself emotionally with another woman (and a mother with a young toddler at that.) The “legal separation” stage lasted as long as the blink of an eye. Brad and Jen ended their marriage, and Brad never looked back.

    From every angle, this marriage was dead, emotionally, sexually, and spiritually. It can be argued that that the foundation was weak, never really existed, or snapped at the first sign of trouble. This marriage did not last and could not stand the test of time that other long standing marriages have been able to endure. All that was left was to cut the ties legally to one another.

    I believe both parties are better off. Look at Brad’s full and vibrant life now– successful father of six, producer, multiple-acclaimed actor, world traveler, philanthropist and humanitarian. Plus he cannot keep his hands off his woman’s ass.

    Now look at Jen. Yes, she is making money. And yes, she is free to do what she wants to do. She is good looking, but folks, you HAVE to be in order to be, stay and survive in Hollywood. It is a prerequisite.

    Brad was not a good match for her, Vince Vaughn was not a good match, and neither was Paul Sculfor or John Mayer. I think John Mayer was absolutely the worst mate for her from day one. I think all of these men, individually, are fine, but not at all a good choice for her. I also think she has waisted the last ten years of her life with her poor choices in men. I hope she learns from her mistakes.

  37. raunnie says:

    These comments ROCK! Jennifer Aniston did look much better with more weight on her. If she suffered a miscarriage, that is so sad. I once read a comment by Monique “Once you go fat, you can never go back.” Angelina needs to eat properly to set a good example for her kids. Brad needs to be proud and kind like Pierce Brosnan is towards his beautiful, bootiful wife, Keely, one of the most stunning ladies of the world.

  38. diddy says:


  39. Rita says:

    diddy, if Jen really wanted kids as she has said then the last 10 years of her life have been a washout in that way. But I doubt she wants kids, I remember an interview they gave soon after marrying and Brad said he wanted 6 or 7 kids, and Jen said well he will be lucky to get 2 from me. Knew then and there that the marriage was doomed, kids are a fundamental decision folks have to agree on. I think the NE is lying as usual, doubt Jen was ever pregnant, she has had major weight insecurity issues all her career. Anyway I am so tired of this old whole he said she said, it’s going on 5 years and long past time to move on.

  40. Marianne says:

    Seriously, the press should get over this story. Old news. Brad, Angelina and Jennifer moved on with their lives. I don’t think that these people, busy as they are, spend 30 seconds of the day thinking about things that happened so long ago. They’re not important anymore. What I find hilarious about these stories is how cheesy and melodramatic they are. And some comments are scary. Some people write about the subject as if they were really there, as if they witnessed the story. I know some “Brangelina” fans who are able to yell at their own friends if one of them say something bad about Angelina Jolie, a complete stranger. That’s just weird.

  41. Judy says:

    I remember when she had the miscarriage
    and they didnt make a big fuss about it in the ragmags. Guess she wasnt a big enough star yet. Yes they did lose a baby because of her dieting. Things went to hell from there on in. So for her to blame and let the rest of the world blame AJ for the break up was a bad move on her part.

  42. Henny says:

    Both checked out of that marriage within 2 years of the wedding, neither appeared to understand the other at all. Read some of their old interviews, they both said we are having big time problems but the PR sold them to the public as happy. Happy couples do not voluntarily separate for 5-6 months at a time when all they have to do is pick up a phone and get a private jet to fly them anywhere in the world at any time. Look at Brad now, he will only leave Angelina and the kids for a couple of days at the most for business and then he is right back home with his family. This is NE BS as usual BUT I do think BOTH wanted out of the marriage long before Jan 2005, they kept all their property separate except for the big BH house which Brad’s realtor sold and they split the proceeds 50-50. I also think Jen was never that upset but feels compelled to do PR for her fans. But enough is enough, time to put this all in the past, it’s 2009.

  43. Amy says:

    This is really old news, nothing new. When Brad and Jennifer announced their divorce, the tabloids decided to re-write history and blamed Angelina for the divorce. For some reason everybody is forgetting that for at least a year, the tabloids were saying their marriage was in trouble. There was a lot of little things that indicated things weren’t great. In interviews they said things like there’s no such thing as a perfect marriage or loves of their lives. In a 6 month period they saw each other for just a few days. Didn’t they spend a couple of birthdays and anniversaries apart? Also Maddox called Brad dad when he and Angelina were already a couple not before.

  44. Shut-up! says:

    Brad Pitt was acting like a little boy the moment he met Angelina! He was so smitten with her and her with him, that both of them walked around the set holding hands (while not filming). Face it folks, Brangelina was having a hot and heavy affair on and off the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith! Jen didn’t want to be the fool or idiot in her marriage. As soon as Jen found out about Brad’s affair, she filed for a separation, and later filed for divorce. Angelina should really be called “Ms. Homewrecker!” Look at the relationship she had with Billy Bob Thornton. He was still engaged to Laura Dern when Angie begged Billy to marry her. Well, what ever Angie wants, Angie gets! She is so used to getting what she wants, and is such a bitch on set that no one in town wants to work with her, nor does any woman trust her with their man!

    Man, if only Brad could have controlled his penis and not have cheated on his wife, we wouldn’t be having this discussion right now!

  45. Reily says:

    Anyone who thinks Brad looks happier in pixs with Jen needs to get their eyes examined. They were usually seen looking in opposite directions in most pixs and leaning away from each other. There are pixs of Brad with Angelina since 2005 to the present date where he is looking at her and you can see his whole heart in his eyes and his body is always leaning into Angelian as hers is into him. Brad is totally whipped, he is completely in love with Angelina. There is a pix of them at SAGS I think where she is in a blue dress and he has a matching blue square in his jacket pocket and he is looking at her with love just flowing from his eyes, as if she is the most precious thing in his world. Sigh!! Love is love, you never know where and when it will flower.

  46. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    Ug. This was how long ago now?

  47. DD says:

    Some people sound like they are writing the plot of a harlequin romance novel. Josephina you sound a little too emotionally involved, the level of detail is creepy considering we’re talking about real people here and I’m pretty sure you’re not bosom buddies with them that you can be so in tune with their feelings, thoughts and emotions.

  48. Paloma says:

    Is the above blind item referring to Courteney as starting to tell JA’s secrets? I still do not believe the miscarriage story ~ that came out when the clamoring about Jen not wanting a kid was sky high; it was a ploy from her PR to quieten the masses. I do think she is obsessed with her weight and maybe one reason she does not want a kid. Also, her broken home and dysfunctional relationship with her mom all plays into it.

  49. aleach says:

    first off, who gives a shit.
    second, wow. some of these comments that are giving specific details about who was on vaction where/when and when the films wrapped up shooting, and blah blah blah are uh…CREEPY!
    some of you seem to know more about Jolie, Pitt, & Anistons personal lives than i can remember about my own!

  50. diddy says:

    @Paloma the NE story about a misscarriage was written in 2004 when they were still together. your logic that jen pr people planted it to deflect from the rumours her marriage brokeup because of the kids issue doesnt seem to fit with the timeline the first story about a misscarriage was printed haha.

    lainey wrote her blind in 2007 and according to her the bff was her hairdresser not courtney cox, also why would jennifer plant a blind that puts some blame on herself and makes her appear vain LOL

    some people are obessed with the woman so called PR team, you would think she the only one that has a pr person in hollywood the way people go on about; according to them any jennifer aniston story espesically positive is planted by her pr team LMAO

  51. PJ says:

    Interesting — in the 4 1/2 years since this photo was taken, Brad has aged at least 10 years, maybe more, whereas Jennifer looks exactly the same age now as she did then.

    The photo reminds me of how good-looking he used to be. What happened? I think his looks are just ordinary/OK now.

  52. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    Eh, I think he looks better now than he did then. He looked like just any old Ken doll back then. Now he looks like he has a lot more personality and life in his face and looks. I dunno–he seems happy now.

  53. Masie says:

    I think Brad stopped all the elaborate facials and whatnot and is ageing naturally. He is 45 years old with 6 kids, including 8 month old twins, he does not have the time to pamper and beautify himself as he once did. But he is more handsome today as a real man to me rather than when he was a Ken doll look-a-like. I totally agree with anastasia, he looks so very happy these days, like his life is good.

  54. Henny says:

    Jen looks older also, especially her hands. She wears lots more makeup at events these days as well. You can’t hold back time forever unless you take drastic steps and have major plastic surgery like Joan Rivers. Jen also has the time and money for all types of extensive beauty treatments and exercise daily as she does in her new home’s home gym. She has to stay as young looking as possible for as long as possible for the rom com roles she plays. Sad true fact in movieland. Roles for women in their 40’s begin to dry up, roles for men in their 40’s flourish.

  55. yeah, right says:

    I see Jen’s publicist is working over-time trying to make her look better after her latest public dumping. Sorry, don’t believe a word of this. Pitt has six kids and Jen had Mayer; it’s obvious Pitt left and why, if you ask me.

  56. Ursula says:

    I guess I too would be tired of a husband with such a little weenie making a fool of me. She put up with his inadequacies in the bedroom which are well documented in hollywood only to be humiliated. I still can’t believe how Pitt has changed, he looks so ugly these days. He does not look happy, he looks nervous all the time and has no more friends apart from Maddox and Pax.

  57. Ned says:

    People here are talking as if we live in the 50s or the 18 century.

    Just because the husband wants a child at a certain time, doesn’t mean the wife needs to “make sure he is happy” and forget about her career.

    In fact, most women today, do delay having children and focus on their career are established.

    If Brad is too much of a self-centered or chauvinist, that is one thing.
    However, not being sensitive to a woman who had a miscarriage is really bad.

    I hope this story is not true, because that would make Brad even a bigger J*rk.

  58. Ned says:

    IF anything, it’s better to have children when you are ready to take care of them, rather than having then and really focusing on your career and PR maneuvers all over the world while the children suffer and don’t get the stability they deserve.

    Having 6 children within 3.5 years is crazy.
    Having 2 newborns and additional 4 children while you work 14 hours a day, and nannies raise them, is not really being a parent.

  59. JackieSA says:

    When are we (and Jen) going stop talking about her and Brad as tho theyh were still together. He’s gone and moved on, do the same Jen! Get over it already!

    I couldn’t disagree more with your overall comment. A man wanting to have kids is no more chauvinist than a women wanting to children!!

    In a marriage you have to be on the same page about the big issues. And kids is a total dealbreaker!!

    If the situation was reversed, and Jen wanted to have kids but Brad every would cheer Jen on for leaving him. It obvious from his own statements that Brad wanted a big family for a long time. From Jen’s actions, either she did not or she didn’t want kids with him, or she was simply not ready for motherhood at that point. Whatever her reasons, it’s not fair to both of them to drag their marriage on when they reached such a big dead end.

    And also, Jen did NOT have to give up her career to have kids. Angie has SIX and is still a working mom, with a recent Oscar nomination!! There are plenty of other working moms in hollywood as well. So this reasoning doesn’t stand.

    Plus let’s not forget, Jen’s career was ALREADY established.

    Just sayin’…

  66. Ned says:

    “A man wanting to have kids is no more chauvinist than a women wanting to children!!

    A man who wants to have children is not a chauvinist.
    A man who leaves his wife because he wouldn’t compromise and wait till she is more established in her career or- even worst- recover emotionally from a miscarriage (hope this one isn’t true…) – is indeed a big chauvinist and even bigger J^rk.

    And having 6 children while working 14 hours a day like Angelina and running an intense Oscar campaign is not really being a mother.

    Perhaps Jen is more responsible and really wanted to follow through such a commitment and knew she wasn’t really ready to take such a responsibility at the time?

    It is much more mature. Having 6 children to be dragged around the world and raised by stangers – is hardly taking motherhood seriously.

  67. FF says:

    Women get skinny or skinnier – as seems to be the predominant case – when they’re with Brad because he doesn’t seem to have any fat on him at all.


    I was watching Burn After Reading the other night was was a bit distracted by the fact that – considering the obvious aging – he still didn’t seem to have an excess ounce anywhere.

    I think a lot of women find a superfit boyfriend/husband intimidating. Getting skinnier is just a way to not feel quite so intimidated by it. I guess they feel the need to ‘measure up’ subconsciously or something.

    I think that happens to a lot of people though, women AND men. Guys usually try to gain more skills, capital, mistresses or money though – but some do try to lose weight (or gain muscle whichever) too.

  68. me says:

    jennifer just stop its been years now get over it, damm its like people dont break up anymore, how may divorces are in hollywierd yet people are so quick to blame aj, your man cannot be taken he has his own free will. can we please just stop already MOVE ON MANISTON.

  69. Preesi says:

    In the above article you mention that you dont know whether the new story is true (that Jenn divorced Brad first)

    Well, its extremely hard to find the articles now with all the rumors of her many pregnancies clogging Google, BUT
    in 2001 Jennifer Aniston was indeed pregnant with Brads baby

    So that does jive with the statements in your article.

  70. ThatBKChick says:

    “If Jen was really looking for an out, and was “relieved” by Brad’s affair with Jolie, then why bring it all up again in recent interviews, including the notorious “Uncool” comments made to Vanity Fair?”–

    Thank You…this goes goes to show the breadth and depth of this miser and loser azz of a woman…I am so tried and through with her. To think that all of this time, (not that I am cheering for Brad and Ang), they allowed her to play the victim or a broken home, when the sh_t was way broken before Ang and Brad got togther, speaks mounds! They have allowed her to play the wounded/gilted ex all of this time and now her azz is exposed. I used to feel bad for Jennifer at first and I even had some empathy towards John Mayer dogging her behind…..”Every Rose Has it’s Torns” but there is nothing good about Roses and Sh_t..that’s what Jennifer Aniston made out off! SMDH!!!

    @ Ned:
    “A man who wants to have children is not a chauvinist.
    A man who leaves his wife because he wouldn’t compromise and wait till she is more established in her career or- even worst- recover emotionally from a miscarriage (hope this one isn’t true…) – is indeed a big chauvinist and even bigger J^rk.”

    Uh, I read about this:

    “When they were still married, Brad emotionally breaks down and tells the world that he is desperate for children. What does Jennifer do? She goes on SNL, mocking her husband, making fun of his misery for laughs. What kind of wife does that to a husband?”

    Jen made that appearance in 2004.

    I guess she was recovered enough to make a jab at Brad. So… once again how is Brad a chauvinist from wanting to start a family with his wife?

    Please, that marriage was dead as soon as it begins !

    You don’t go two years through therapy (the only time Brad ever did it in his lovelife) for nothing ! You don’t complain about staying at home, not working smoking things you shouldn’t smoke if there is no problem between you and your spouse.

    You don’t refer about a ‘merger’ when you talk about your marriage. You don’t tell the world that you and your wife know that it doesn’t last and have make the promise to call it quits when it doesn’t suits you. You don’t tell the world that your husband is not the love of your life. You don’t tell the world that you are finally relieved that your husband is gone for 6 months and that you don’t want to go see him but are happy to refurnished the home at your convenience while he is gone. You don’t mock your husband wish of fatherhood on several occasions, even when he furnished the nursery, the worst one being giving him a fake positive pregnancy test in front of friends as a bad joke. That’s pure emotional abuse !

    Hell even John Aniston said that Brad went into that maraiage with heavy feet. It was Jen who pressured him to marry he !

    All these are UNDESPUTABLE PROOFS that this marriage was a parody ! And all this happens during the first three years of that marriage.

    People have selective memories because rumors of splits were constant from day one and Brad and Jen were often apart for months without showing the slightest sign of impatience for getting back to their loved ones.

    The only wrong of Jolie is being the next woman cause if it was another one, that story would have die long ago. It’s pure jealousy from the part of Aniston. Brad would have left her in the same circumstances with another woman, less beautiful, less famous and/or less successful, part of the media and sick fans wouldn’t blame her like they blame Jolie.

    I also think that there is an underlined racist reason. If Pitt had married a lonely childless Jolie at the beginning, who would have carry only the three biological ones, the perception of people would have been different blaming Aniston for not giving him that and praising Jolie for perpetuating their egostitical fantasy golden couple into the golden family. People don’t want to admpit it, but they were mad at Jolie because she tainted him and crushed their golden fantasy when she went with Pitt who had his first “little her” who turns out to be African crushing the idea of a perfect beautiful WASP blue eyed blond couple procreating and trenscanding themselves into the total perfect WASP american family ! Exotic looking and adoptive mum of ethnic children, Jolie crushed that insane fantasy deep rooted in an overwhelming part of Aniston fanbase !

    Many mothers work, some out of necessity and some because it povides a balance. Believe it or not, some mothers want to do more than raise children. Some women are gifted enough to contribute to the world while raising children. Look at most female poiticians, for example. Most of them are mothers. Most of my females friends are mothers. Of that lot, only a few had stayed at home to raise their children. All so these children are just fine and have advanced social skills for their age. Whether they wor outside the home or not, all of the mothers (my friends) are very committed to their child’s development and advancement in the world. None of these women have the same practices of raising their children, but each one of these mothers is definitely their child’s best advocate. Putting your child first does not necessarily mean physically staying at home each day. Some women need to do that in order to accomplish the type of child rearing experience that they desire. Other women have been able to accomplish like minded goals in a different manner.

    There is no one right way to raise a child. That’s the beauty behind motherhood.

  75. Moore says:

    To sum it up:
    The two get married never really connecting. He wants lots of kids, she doesn’t sound like it. She gets pregnant, loses the baby somehow (I’m leaning towards the diet pills as crazy as it sounds). They both aren’t into the marriage anymore. She goes on SNL and pokes fun. They separate but not publicly. They go on Vaca then come back to make it public. He works with Angie. Falls in love then gets the blame when the divorce comes out though they were already separated.
    That about right? That’s what I’m getting from most comments.

    I don’t think he and angie were doing anything physically when they met. I just don’t. Emotionally and however else maybe. I also remember hearing the two (B and A) say that one works at a time therefore one parent is always with the children. That’s good parenting to me. The arrangement sounds better than most.

    JA had no choice…she initiated divorce proceedings because Brad was NOT coming back.

  77. nina says:

    How is Jolie exotic looking, other than the over-the-top plastic surgery?

  78. pumak says:

    good for JA to leave that douche… but i like to watch and see if in the future the two cheaters (BP+AJ) will get some sort of godly punishment… if there’s no justice, then there’s no point of being the good guy is there…

    Because that’s what Jesus is all about, catering to the whims of angry plebs who can’t stand it when other people are happy without their permission.

  80. JessicaGiovanna says:

    I remember when they did get divorced, it was said that she initiated the divorce.. it’s not “news” it’s always been out there that she’s the one that initiated.. and frankly, I would’ve done it too if in her shoes.
