Brad Pitt 'threatened' Harvey Weinstein 22-years ago after he allegedly sexually harassed his then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow.
2016 has been riddled with high-profile celebrity break-ups, with dozens of apparently rock-solid couples falling by the wayside, with anything from extra-martial affairs to ill-advised Halloween outfits apparently to blame. Just in case you missed them amid the shock of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie calling time on their ten years together back in September, we’ve rounded up the showbiz couples who called it quits in 2016.
Proof that 2016 is the plot twist that just keeps giving, Angelina Jolie’s ex-boyfriend, Billy Bob Thornton, has sensationally revealed that he wants to work with her estranged husband, Brad Pitt. Angelina filed for divorce from Brad back in September, with sources claiming that there was an altercation between Brad and their eldest child, 15-year-old Maddox. The pair have since reached a temporary custody agreement and now Billy Bob has spoken out about his career goals.
Forget that row about who has custody of the kids; the Sunday Express reckons Brad Pitt and Angelina are at war over who gets their filthy mitts on a famous old oil painting. According to the paper, Brangelina have been tussling over Sir Edwin Landseer’s iconic The Monarch of the Glen, which is likely to fetch up to £10million when it goes up for auction in London next month. Both Brad and Angelina are more than a little keen on the painting, which has become something of a symbol for the Scottish Highlands. The now-divorced pair fell for the artwork while they were renting a manor house in Ayrshire in 2011 while Brad filmed World War Z.
You could forgive Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston for having a little snigger amid the fallout from the Brangelina split, but so far the pair have managed to maintain a dignified silence. When the 45-year-old actor shared a graffiti design by street artist Nick Flatt, fans couldn’t help but notice someone’s name in the background. Except that it’s not just politics, war and boring old imperialism getting on the young lady’s wick – there on the right, bold as brass, it says “F*** Brad Pitt.” Blimey. Look, it’s about the presidential election, OK? Justin’s potty-mouthed post comes after the couple’s mutual friend Chelsea Handler came to Jen’s defence when the subject of Brad and Angelina came up in a Grazia interview.
Everyone’s got a celebrity crush – including Britney Spears, who admitted that she has admired Brad Pitt for years. The pop star, who has always been candid about her affection for the Fury actor, took note of his recent split from Angelina Jolie during an interview on Australia’s Today show, where she spoke about the heartthrob. “My first celebrity crush was Brad Pitt,” the 34-year-old singer smiled.
In a world where plenty of celebrities are eager to get hitched within a week of their first date - lured by the prospect of a six-figure sum in exchange for the wedding snaps, no doubt - it’s easy to forget that some stars have principles. As Kylie and her British fiance Joshua Sasse vow not to tie the knot until same-sex marriage becomes legal in Australia, we look at other stars who made a similar stand.
It has been reported that Angelina Jolie has found comfort in her friend, Johnny Depp, following her split from husband, Brad Pitt. The star became good friends with Johnny after they appeared in ‘The Tourist’ together back in 2010, and Johnny is no doubt able to offer her some words of wisdom having just gone through his own high-profile divorce from ex, Amber Heard. Angelina and Johnny worked together on The Tourist.
According to US gossip site TMZ, Brad Pitt is now being investigated by police over reports he was “verbally abusive and physical with his children” on a private jet. The website, which first broke the news of the couple’s divorce to the world earlier in the week, now alleges that 52-year-old Brad was “wasted” on the flight last Wednesday. TMZ claims that the alleged episode prompted 41-year-old Angelina to file for divorce from the actor the following day.
The 40-year-old took to Instagram late Wednesday night to share a lengthy message, explaining the need to “speak up” on the speculation that she is the reason Angelina Jolie filed for divorce on Monday. Marion categorically denied the rumours that she had been involved in an affair with her co-star, insisting that she has nothing to do with Brangelina’s shock split. The couple – who have been in a relationship since 2007 and are parents to their five-year-old son Marcel – also shared an exciting announcement in her candid post.
We all know about Brad’s long-term relationships and marriages to the likes of Angelina Jolie (sniff), Jennifer Aniston (sob) and Juliette Lewis (ha!) - but how about some of the lesser known flings, affairs and engagements that have dotted his career in Hollywood? Did you know Brad once dated a British pop singer who hasn’t had a hit since the 1980s? Or how about the leading lady from one of the biggest movies of the 1990s?
George had no idea Brad was getting a divorce. You would have thought Brad would have sent him a text or something, wouldn’t you? George was asked how he felt about the split by the American news channel, with the actor responding: “I didn’t know that, wow.
Yesterday afternoon we were all left completely shocked when it was announced that Angelina Jolie had filed for divorce from her partner of 12 years, Brad Pitt.

This is the last time Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were photographed together before the shocking news of their divorce broke on Tuesday afternoon. It shows Angelina, 41, and Brad, 52, eating pancakes at The Griddle Café with twins Vivienne and Knox.
