Did Angelina kick Brad out for being uninterested in charity work?


In Touch Weekly’s cover story this week is “Brad Moves Out”. It’s just about as dumb as you would imagine. The crux of the article is about how Brad has “moved out” while he went to Spain to attend a film festival, and how he “moved out” while he, Angelina and the kids were on vacation in Africa. Ugh. I’m just going to put up some lowlights from this story:

*While Brad was in Spain, random Spanish eyewitness Raquel Espinola said “Brad looked scruffy, bloated and unshaven… he looks as if he’s living out of a suitcase.”

*Brad left the French chateau when “Angelina dropped the bombshell… she threw him out of the house and told him, ‘This time, it’s for good.’”

*Brad and Angelina fought during their African vacation because “she had wanted Brad to come with her [to Ethiopia], but he refused.” She hoped it would be like their trip to Cambodia a few years ago, “a learning experience for the kids” but Brad “doesn’t share her vision for how to educate her kids.”

*The African trip was “the final straw” for Brangelina‘s troubled relationship. Sidenote: I believe In Touch has used “the final straw” exactly ten bajillion times when describing alleged fights in the Jolie-Pitt household.

*Brad isn’t interested in copying every one of Angelina’s interests anymore. In Touch has a photo array of “Brad gets tattoos… like Angelina” and “Brad learned to fly… like Angelina” sidebars. The most ill-timed one is that Brad is supposedly not interest in doing Angelina-type charitable work anymore. I’ll talk about Brad’s appearance today at the Clinton Global Initiative Summit in one moment.

* When Angelina kicked him out, Brad checked into a hotel happily. Brad is “sick of the deceit…he feels the sooner that he and Angelina officially break up, the better.”

*Brad is looking for a fancy new Paris apartment. He’s hiring a bunch of people to renovate the alleged apartment, although In Touch says he hasn’t actually gotten an apartment yet. So how does he know he’ll need to renovate?

*While in Spain, Brad took pictures of various architectural gems. In Touch says Brad will show the photos to his engineering team, to help with the renovation of a yet-to-be-bought apartment. Worst. Cover. Ever.

*Angelina is too thin. Brad is too drunk. This is a problem, say experts.

*Brad’s plan for the kids (now that he and Angelina have officially split, remember?) is that they will go between his Paris apartment and the Chateau, which it seems Brad is letting Angelina have.

Okay, enough fiction. Tonight, Brad is scheduled to give a major policy speech in new York during the annual Clinton Global Initiative. His speech is called “Infrastructure: Building a Better Future, Progress Report on Making It Right in New Orleans”. The speech is described as “a progress report” on this Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) commitment, from which Make It Right NOLA has received millions of dollars.

Brad’s speech will focus on “demonstrating concretely how government, non-profits, and the private sector can work together to build safer, stronger, and more resilient communities while expanding economic opportunity. From one of the greatest disasters in American history, “Make it Right” is laying the groundwork for new prosperity and new beginnings on a foundation of affordable green housing. The discussion will include specific stories of the recovery in New Orleans, and launch a dialogue with CGI members on the future of green infrastructure and sustainable cities.” The whole thing with CGI is that the money being given away isn’t from Bill Clinton or his foundation. CGI just facilitates the exchange of government, business, and grant investments into certain charities or projects President Clinton and his team approve of. It’s a pretty smart program, and I’m looking forward to reading coverage of Brad’s speech tomorrow.

Here’s Brad at the the premiere of “Inglourious Basterds” at the San Sebastian Film Festival on September 20th. Images thanks to BauerGriffinOnline.

    No, she kicked him out because of the beard and his body odor.

  2. Praise St. Angie! says:

    and here I thought it was because of the monogrammed slippers.

    seriously, does ANYONE believe this crap?

  3. Sudini says:

    Seriously! That beard is the anti-hot.

  4. Hieronymus Grex says:

    The tabloid buzzards are circling again, huh ? Folks just hate when two people are content together w/o their permission.

  5. Regina says:

    No, no, you’re all wrong; he left Angelina to run back to Jen once he heard of her break down on the set of her new movie over him! LMAO!

  6. Linda says:

    He just gets better and better. He’s becoming a real human being. I don’t see how she can say he’s not working for charity in light of all the houses he’s building in New Orleans.

  7. Rosalee says:

    Brad’s deep love of monogrammed slippers and neck scarves were the final straw for Angelina..

  8. lisa says:

    I think the tabs need to move on and leave these people alone. They have been printing lies for years. Brad and the MIR project have really changed the lives of many people. REAL PEOPLE. I was just watching the live feed. and they had a woman on who spoke of having her first home. Providing her children with things they could not have if the circumstances were different. I don’t care if people like or dislike Brad. I don’t care if people are still pissed that he and Angelina are happy together. He has stayed with this project. And because of him NOLA is STILL in the media. STILL talked about. Why? because of Brad and the other men and women in MIR.. I love how these people speak so highly of him, as well as the residents in the lower 9th ward. Bravo Brad. Good job..

    MIR got an award too. And to me this is more important and special then any award he could get in hollywood. Helping to make life better for someone else.

    and Linda.. that story is a lie.. I have never heard Angie say anything negative about Brad nor he her.. Each of them seems to have their own thing..Angie is into the Refugee situations.. and Brad has NOLA and MIR.. they also have the Jolie-Pitt Foundation which they share together. so I would say they have a great respect for the couses of each other.

    Suck the the tabs.. and you can change my S to a F

  9. NOT TRUE says:

    Is this a cover up because Jens movie bombed again?

  10. NOT TRUE says:

    By the way Brad does alot of charity work and I bet Angelina is very proud to be with him.

  11. Rosalee says:

    The neck scarf is definitely a cover-up – it has been used by men and women to cover a multitude of sins.

  12. Beth says:

    I’m almost positive that it was In Touch who said that Brad had already moved out of the French home when he stopped there I think after the German premiere of IB. What I don’t understand is how can IT get away with doing the same story every week? How many times can it be the final straw or Brad moving out? Also they just leasing the property. They don’t own it.

  13. Charity is Chic says:

    NOT TRUE, you really need to get a LIFE. What does any of this have to do with Aniston? It’s people like you that keep that drama going. And going. And going. Move on already.

  14. crash2GO2 says:

    I’m really not a fan of that beard. I think it makes his eyes look even smaller and squintier. Or is that the pot? LOL

    Good Lord, hound on tabloids. Sheesh.

  15. Maritza says:

    In Touch really picked the most awful picture they could find of him to prove their point.

  16. DD says:

    not because I think they are the greatest couple that walked the earth or that they’ll never split but how many times can Brad Pitt move out without actually moving out?
    The tabloids don’t even try anymore to find real material do they. I’m glad I don’t waste any money on them.

  17. Jenna says:

    These comments are actually entertaining! For once in a blue moon there is no large commenting war about team whatever and whoever.


  18. Firestarter says:

    NOT TRUE- Yes, it is all a right wing conspiracy to cover up Aniston’s bad movie. The bad economic situation here in the U.S was also created to deflect attention away from Aniston’s poor box office receipts. I think also the war in Iraq was created by the government to hide the fact that Aniston is a poor, barren ,desperate actress, still pining away for her ex husband and the children they never had.

  19. Dianne says:

    Oh, I forgot to say – and sorry that this is off topic – but I heard a rumor that Johnny Depp may be doing a Dark Shadows movie playing Barnabus Collins.


  20. Fat Elvis says:

    Jenna: Just give it time. Believe me, the shit will start to fly any time now. Some of these nuts can’t exist without fighting about the triangle at least three times a day.

  21. Judy says:

    I ran into Brad and Angie while shopping in N.O. and he did not smell and she was NOT skin and bones, She is think but has always been thin . I doubt very much if they are seperating as they were very touchy feely while they were out ,they act like any other family out shopiing and act like people in love. This once again is BS.

  22. sara says:

    I live near New Orleans, and both of my neighbors, who are related, lost everything. Ask anyone from there or from the Lower 9th and they will tell you that Make It Right has done NOTHING. NOTHING. In four years they have completed very, very few houses. The program is an utter effing FAILURE. He shows up every six months or so for ONE DAY for a photo op (Angelina and her one-day “charity” efforts, anyone?), but the people who live there are pissed off that this is just one more bullshit PR effort by some rich white guy to make himself look good.

    Eff you, Pitt. You are a traitor. People in NO are STILL WAITING for all these great little eco-friendly houses–which are not hurricane-hardened, by the way. Crock of shit.

  23. Cheyenne says:

    Outa Touch is caught in the web of their own bullshit. They’ve been making up lies about the J-P family for five years now and they have to keep making up new lies to justify the old ones. If I remember correctly, they ran a story three years ago that Brad was leaving Angie and taking Shiloh with him, with a sidebar about how Jennifer was looking forward to being a wonderful stepmother.

  24. Amy says:

    Don’t get me wrong I do think that helping the city of New Orleans is a great thing. And Brad has put his heart into it. However what bothers me is that these houses are tiny – I don’t really know how a family of more than 3 could live there. Also brad seems to use huge amounts of power with his flying private planes all over the world, owning multiple houses, etc. And yet thinks that the “other people” should live in tiny places. I would love to see him and Angie and their children live in one of these houses for 3 months and then talk about how great they are. He lives in a 75 million dollar mansion, has many other places and he is “preaching” about going green and living on $35 dollars a month utilities? Somehow it just rubs me the wrong way. Oh well us little people need to realize that we are just that and brad can tell us what is good for us – even if it would never work for him.

  25. Amy says:

    Oh and as for the tabs. They just repeat the same story over and over. Really sad but people still eat it up. I think that they are still together. They have reached the stage that most of us reach now though. At the beginning they were not apart for more an a few hours. Now they travel all over without each other. Not a bad thing – just what happens once you have been together for awhile. I do believe that they will stay together for the kids even if they are not happy. Brad really does need to do something with himself – he just doesn’t look good. That man used to be hot!! Now not so much!

  26. NOT TRUE says:

    How sad that someone posted that MIR isn’t doing enough, what have you done to contribute? The houses aren’t big enough, for what ten children plus the mother? Come on, the homes are a gift and it’s in the US so really what’s the complaint again? It really irritates me to hear someone complain they want a house NOW as if Brad owes them. Why oh why can’t you help yourselves?

  27. Jazz says:

    I thought he “moved out” already?!

  28. nikki says:

    idiot and untrue when look above

  29. Christine says:

    WTF What has New Orleans done for the people in New Orleans? Put the blame where it belongs. Atleast the man is trying, if the city is not rebuilding fast enough for some, complain to New Orleans’s Senators and Congress.

    I agree the tabs. need to give a break. How many times can a couple break up, move out, get thrown out, sleep in different bedrooms, move to different parts of the house and yet they are still together.

    The record is getting old, we need a new tune.

  31. TaylorB says:

    InTouch ‘Sources’ are now saying that Angie actually threw him out so that she could hook up with that dead sexy Jon Gosselin. Brad was crushed so he joined a cult, which made Jennifer Aniston so upset she had grudge sex with Dustin Diamond… or so sources say.

  32. Anonymous says:

    “Make it Right” is only for PR for his movies.
    Where is her now? In N.O.?
    Why not??????????????????????????

    He had no movie on start!

  33. Cheyenne says:

    Um, Sara… before you start blaming Brad Pitt for not rebuilding New Orleans, WTF has your lousy excuse of a municipal government been doing? The public sector has been doing absolutely zilch. You can’t depend on private foundations to rebuild an entire neighborhood. Tell your mayor and your governor to get off their lazy asses and do their jobs.

    To whoever mentioned Habitat for Humanity: I’ve read some news reports that said some of the houses built by H for H have some serious construction problems. Maybe MIR is going slower because it is trying to live up to its name — make it right.

  34. celeducat'em says:

    make it right is building houses in a neighborhood that should never have been developed to begin with. it is at a vulnerable crossroad of two waterways, behind a poorly maintained levee on land two feet below sea level. for those that idolize pitt for his charitable deeds, know that despite his good intention (or pr savvy), he is too uninformed and uneducated to make an ecological impact. he is not an architect regardless of his enthusiasm for the profession and should avoid the activity altogether. after all, it will be us the taxpayer expected to pay up when these houses ultimately fall prey to the next flood/hurricane- and they will. all the while, he is holed up in one of his multimillion dollar supersized estates accessed by his private planes. no environmental hero!

  35. Firestarter says:

    LOL! I love how someone totally took my comment about Brad Pitt smelling bad as me being serious! How would I know if he stinks!? Hahahaha! Oh my, doesn’t anyone have a sense of humor anymore!?

  36. huh says:

    I honestly don’t think the issue is that NO posters think that Brad Pitt is obliged to give them houses (or mansions, or whatever).

    It seems to me that they are simply stating that he is getting a lot of publicity to make it sound like he is doing a lot when he is actually doing very little.

    I don’t live in NO and don’t know what he has accomplished (or not accomplished). What I read is that these people are furious about reading how great he is and how much he has helped them when they see very little in the way of help coming from his organization.

    That has nothing to do with saying he owes them anything or what the govt is doing.

    Octomom wanted her 8 babies all at the same time while Angie likes to collect them.
