Bradgelina Update

The Barque keeps you up to date on one of the hottest scandals in Hollywood.


For as long as I can remember Bradgelina has been one of the most talked about couples in Hollywood.  Whether it was the revealing of their secret affair, the adoptions of their children, or their pact to not get legally married until everybody could, they have been the ideal image of “couple goals”. On September 15th this all went to dust, when Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, citing “irreconcilable differences” in her court documents.

Through all this drama many are wondering what their six children, ranging from the ages of 10 to 15, will do. Jolie will be seeking full physical custody of all six children but plans to share legal custody. Pitt has recently spoken out about the divorce saying “I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids”.

The rumors flooding the internet where that Jolie’s filling for divorce came from the uncovering of an alleged affair Pitt was having with “Allies” co-star Marion Cotillard, who was his love interest in the film. This allowed the power of the internet to go into full burst as users polluted social media with meme’s recognizing the irony in it all. If you are not familiar with the history, Pitt was married to beloved actress Jennifer Anniston for 5 years before she filed for divorce against Pitt after discovering his affair with Jolie when they were love interests in their movie “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”.

Cotillard took to Instagram to debunk the rumors. In her long caption explaining her side of the situation, she quickly explains that she did not intend on commenting on the divorce, until she got swept up in it all. She expresses her love for her current “man of [her] life”, French actor Guillaume Canet. She also tells that she is still in a committed relationship with him as he is the father of her first and soon-to-be second son. She finished out the statement with wishing Pitt and Jolie peace.

So all in all, rest in peace Bradgelina, your love will be deeply missed.
