In Touch Weekly claims Brad Pitt moved out

In Touch Weekly’s cover story this week is called “Brad Moves Out”. Gee, I wonder what it’s about? The “moving out” story (via Showbiz Spy) is apparently based on last week’s story of Brad jetting off to France for a few days before Easter. Because, yes, in Tabloidville, going to France for a few days is “Moving Out”.

In Touch doubles down on the moving out story, saying that Brad and Angelina’s recent trip to a Long Island grocery story was just a public relations move – they “can turn it on for the cameras most of the time”. So, you see, the rumors of a split started because they hadn’t been photographed together for a couple of months, and now that they’re photographed together, it’s “all for the cameras”. The tabloids get them coming and going:

Relations between Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are at an all time low — but the two are putting on a show of unity for the cameras.

“Sure, they look happy in photos,” a source tells In Touch Weekly magazine. “They are actors and can turn it on for the cameras most of the time.

“The cracks in their relationship are getting deeper and deeper.”

The couple — who raise six children together — apparently had an argument just before Easter, which is said to have resulted in Brad storming out of their rented Long Island, New York, mansion.

“He told her very clearly that he just can’t live with her anymore,” the source added. “He said it was over. He was like, ‘I’m outta here,’ and left.”

It was recently claimed that Jolie had offered Pitt $90 million for custody of their kids.

From Showbiz Spy

As far as the claim that Angelina offered Brad $90 million for the kids, it just seems too absurd. In the first place, Angelina doesn’t have that kind of money. Brad does – Angelina doesn’t. Secondly, Angelina wouldn’t take away the kids, not even if they split. Those kids love their father, and what would taking the kids away accomplish?

For people who have been consistent gossip readers for years, this all has a summer 2007 feel to it. That was the time when every tabloid and site were piling on Brangelina, claiming all kinds of crazy things about their demise. Why do the tabloids do it? Is it low circulation? Declining readership? Do they think these split stories are what people want to hear?

    Ugh. So which one sounds more credible, that he’s packing all of his stuff and dropping his relationship and six kids to jet off to France, or that they are going to the grocery store as a family?

    If they were really on the outs, do you think some of the older kids might notice? I think they might be more of an indicator of stormy waters than if one parent gets on a plane for a weekend–they do that ALL the time.

  2. KDRockstar says:

    I said this back in November… watch the tabloids go crazy with headlines. Magazine sales are down-down-down, with many stopping the presses altogether.

    What headline screams at the people standing in line at the grocery? Octo-mom could only hold attention for so long. These tabs are only going to get worse.

  3. Chicoulino says:

    This is a load of BS!!!!They will write anything to sell.

  4. kap says:

    It might be true, you never know, which is my point, no one knows. Just seems like these stories, although always out there, reach crescendo levels when she’s working and he’s home with the kids. Sexism much? The trip to France was a little weird IMO so I can see where the rags are getting this crap. Guess we’ll have to wait for Cannes and see if he goes solo.

    “mr. har-kin, sir…this,’tabloid-story’ is grade A, bal-o-ney!”

  6. nony says:

    I agree Kaiser, and think it’s partly due to the crappy economy– you really have to move consumers to actually purchase things these days.

    Also, I kinda think there are plenty of people who, maybe don’t want to read about the rich and famous having lovely times– they’d rather read that their lives suck too. But who knows I guess…

  7. SolitaryAngel says:

    I think it’s just that some people cannot bear to see other people happy. It really doesn’t speak well for the human race, does it?

  8. Wow says:

    I can see this couple calling it quits in the future, but I am sick of these made up stories. Its overkill. Even when they do break up the world won’t fall apart, nor will it buy these magazines.

  9. sonia says:

    Has he also moved his belongings from their houses in LA and NOLA or do they claim that Angie and the kids are going to live in France while he lives in USA.I haven’t seen pics of Will and Jada or TomKat in public in months . OMG has will left Jada?

  10. Nony says:

    Always amuses me how ‘a source’ can literally quote what was said in private between these people. Did they interview the coffee table or something? Sounds like all-rubbish all the time to me.

  11. badunkadunk says:

    has in touch ever been right about anything? they suck. brad is always, leaving, storming out, trapped, its over blah blah blah. they have been trying to sell the same story for years.

  12. ferdis says:

    the question is: For WHO would Will leave Jada? hahahha

  13. sonia says:

    Will and Jada are straight. hahaha

  14. Ned says:

    Angelina’s marriages usually end around the 3 years mark, so they are quite in line.

    Angelina will be free to go back to collecting husbands and the leave the third world countries’ children alone.

    Brad should have gotten to know Angelina more, BEFORE he started an instant 6 children family with her.

    Nevertheless, life is short.
    His midlife crisis has subsided and now he can move on with his life.

  15. Ned says:

    If it’s not true and Brangelina do want to put an end to these stories- they can simply issue a statement denying it.

    If BRangelina are not denying it then either:
    1. Brad has left her.

    2. THey enjoy the media exposure

  16. DD says:

    or Ned you missed this possibility:

    3. They don’t have the time to issue a denial of tabloid rumour since every day a new one emerges.

  17. badunkadunk says:

    if they simply issued a statement, then they would have to do that at least once a week.

  18. anna says:

    ” [In Touch is] saying that Brad and Angelina’s recent trip to a Long Island grocery story was just a public relations move ”

    I think this part is true, the rest is garbage. I agree with laineygossip – they call up paps when they want to send a message, “we’re a family, we’re happy”.

    I don’t think Angelina is as big on maintaining a fraud as BP ie. staging “happy” beach pictures on the eve of breaking up w/ JA.

    Don’t get me wrong, I think the Brange are famewhores, and they like to control the message, but I don’t think the message has ever been lies.

  19. lisa says:

    Crap. Just a headline to sell a magazine.

  20. Ggirl says:

    I wish I had $100.00 for everytime these two lovebirds “break up”. I almost wish something would happen so we wouldn’t be exposed to the constant speculation. It is so boring!

  21. PJ says:

    I don’t know how they could break up, because neither of them would let go of the kids.

    Brad once said he “couldn’t live” without his kids.

  22. Chiara says:

    Eventually … the split will be true, I don’t believe they are there yet.

    Pittolina’s need a few more years of disagreements … they’ve never appeared to be more than a publicity match. Mr & Mrs Smith was a very cold film … compared to Prizzi’s Honor, (which was the impetus for MMS).

    If it looks like a duck …

  23. geronimo says:

    What is Brad wearing around his neck in that pic?

  24. cassie says:

    OOh Ned since they’ve broken up Brad is all yours!

  25. Lori says:

    What is the pink rope around BP’s neck?! Some new Kabbalah thing? lol

  26. sonia says:

    Did Brad move out before or after he bought the $150,000 pre-push gift for Angie(Star Magazine) or was the gift a pre wedding(OK magazine) gift

  27. sonia says:

    That pink necklace looks like those yarn necklaces kids make in art class.Kaballah is a red string on wrist.

  28. jennifer says:

    I’m not good at math so someone’s going to have to tell me how many times it’s possible to move out of one’s home? Because it appears to be happening every single week – is there a finite number of times one can leave? Any mathematicians in the house?

  29. Kaiser says:

    Geronimo & Sonia – Aw, I think Angelina & Zahara made Brad a special pink leash.

    “Mush, Daddy, mush!”
    -Princess Zahara

  30. Ned says:

    They did seem to have the time to contact People Magazine and deny many rumors EXCEPT the breaking up story.

    And it is the same rumor every week- that Brad wants to leave her/ in in the process of leaving Angelina.

    Unless, they are really enjoying this game they have with the gossip magazines, they could have simply said- not true.

    Seems much more time consuming to have a stylist dress you up, and wear makeup and call the paparzzi to be at Stop and Shop, and then pose with 2 truamatized little girls for pictures.

    So I’m not ruling out that they are enjoying this game and want to generate more coverage out of it.

    and re: JP: “I don’t know how they could break up, because neither of them would let go of the kids.”

    You do realize that even when people divorce they don’t divorce the children, and parents remain parents regardless of the relationship between the parents?

  31. someone says:

    I don’t even like Brangalina..but I don’t believe this story..Star Mag…I don’t believe any thing written in any of those rumor mags..most of the stuff in them is made up!

  32. cee says:

    Tabloids prey on lonely women who are Jenhens and willing to spend their last dime on garbage. The problem is that most people are smarter than that. So expect lots more Brad and Angie stories as they try to continue to get X fans to buy their rags.

  33. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    Oh snore. When WILL these two get over the famewhoring?

  34. Cinderella says:

    If they were really splitting, why would they bother with a publicity shot at a super market.

    Whether they split or remain together would not affect either career in the least. They are huge together or separately.

  35. DD says:

    Ned you are assuming every point you make is truth when it is your own speculation:
    did they actually call the magazine to address rumours? No there is no admission to that it is only your assumption.
    Did they only go out shopping to dispel rumours? No again, it is only your assumption that they went out for those reasons.

  36. ChristinaT says:

    how come everyone believes everything in the tabloids except brad and angie stories???

  37. Ned says:

    DD, you are right. Paparazzi are always around every Stop and Shop in the area, and all the time (becuase who knows when exactly they might be there for the first time).

    I assume Angelina just happen to have her hair and makeup, uncomfortable stylised clothes ON THE WEEKEND.

    I assume the third full cart is enough for the 6 children, assistants, driver, chef, cleaning staff, teachers and nannies that work in their mansion.

    Yep. I guess the chef gets food by sending Brad and Angelin to get him groceries from Stop and Shop.

    Wait, did I say chef?
    I am sorry. I assume Angelina cooks all the meals for the 4 children, 2 babies and the rest of their staff.
    Brad helps too.

  38. Amy says:

    I really don’t get why people keep saying they will breakup any moment. You would think after four years people would just let them be. I don’t know if they will be together for another four but it’s really disturbing that people are literally waiting with bated breathe for the breakup. What’s the big deal? Couples breakup all of the time and Brad and Angelina’s relationship has lasted longer than many. There’s no point in refuting rumors because people believe what they want anyway. They denied breakup rumors last fall. That was met with they definately brokeup because they don’t comment on rumors. No matter what they do they can’t win.

  39. keek says:

    This story might be bs, at the same time, it’s totally normal for two people in a bad marriage or broken relationship to successfully complete a trip to the grocery store. Especially with the whole damn world watching. I mean, just because they go to the store together doesn’t mean everything is sunshine and rainbows.

    Things can look perfectly fine to everyone for years and be utterly wretched on the inside.

    so to me ‘they went grocery shopping and walked down a red carpet together’ as proof of the stability of their relationship is as retarded as ‘Angelina looks cranky so they’re totally over’

    It’s all crap.
