Brangelina Perseveres, Despite L&S

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are refuting claims made by Life & Style that the Hollywood power couple are headed for Splitsville. The mag has printed no less than four cover stories in the past eight weeks stating that Brad and Angie’s relationship is over and now the two are firing back. Brad Pitt’s spokesperson told Usmagazine.com that Brad and Angie and their family are currently in the midst of enjoying their vacation in France.

These magazines continue to write lies about our clients to sell magazines.”

I feel like Life & Style has a bit more emotionally invested in this particular relationship/break-up even more than us here at ASL. And, we are the first to admit that our fascination with Brangelina is not exactly healthy, but seriously, L&S needs to get a hobby. Or find a rehabbing starlet. At least we’re a bit more well-rounded when it comes to our obsessions. Sort of.

    I heard Jennifer Aniston took a job as Head Editor on L+S three months ago.

    I know he has a thing for the crazy (Gwyneth, Robin Givens, et al), but he never should’ve gotten in so deep w/Angelina’s brand of nuts. She’s the SCARY type of crazy because she looks so pretty and calm in public…you never know what’s lurking underneath.

    Hmmm. Isn’t that what Brad’s PR team said over and over and over again before he & Jennifer split?

    L&S seems to have thrown all their eggs into one basket and the basket doesn’t seem to be cooperating!!!

    I imagine they got a tip months ago that Angie and Brad weren’t doing all that well and just decided to run with that over and over and over again. They are beginning to look idiotic but the refuse to let up. I guess that’s what you have to do when you are the bottom selling tabloid on the newstand!!!

    Jen, I think it was Jennifer’s PR team (Huvane) who did the denials back then. Brad’s team said nothing. At least that’s what I remember.

  6. jen

    *Shrug…Honestly, makes no difference who’s team it was doing the spin – my basic point was no matter which magazine prints it, there’s usually something behind it – there’s been too many couples who are so “together” one minute and then not.

  7. essie

    I’m not of the “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” school of thought. I just think these tabloids put Brad and Angelina on their covers because they sell magazines and a negative story sells better than a positive one because people think these two are too good to be true!!

    Anyway, I’m off. Have a good weekend!!!

    I actually do believe where theres smoke theres fire, and it is the PR people denying any problems, Jolie will probably do an interview soon, to tell everyone how many times a day her and Brad “do it”…LOL

  9. Yeah boys and girls, stick a fork in Brangelina, cuz they are done!

    No sighting and all we are getting are PR statements. Definately NOT Brangelina style.

    DUNZO!

    Well, once again, you guys at ASL are ill informed. It’s also In Touch, Star, Enquirer, RADAR (imagine that), each tab and rag in the UK, our LEGIT blogs like Best Week Ever and on and on and on and on and on. Who knows. Who cares.

  11. Whatever

    Margaret are you referring to the article in RADAR that stated that Angelina had been spotted in Studio City buying a house? Well, I don’t know how that is possible when I just saw pictures of them in France where they have been for the last month or so. Oh, and while in France they bought a house with a vineyard. Doesn’t sound like a couple about to break up to me.

    And Essie you are right. It was Jen’s rep who denied there was anything wrong. You know the same rep that said she and Vince were fine?

    LIES – all of them! Brad NEEDS a woman like Angelina Jolie. She leads an exciting, busy life. If he couldn’t traipse all over the world with her and instead settled into a regular relationship like he had with his ex-wife, he would just get bored again and be ready to leave. He’s not going to leave Jolie. He’s clearly loving being a daddy too. The family life they have built together is worth it to him.

  13. devil

    Egad’s right – Brad needs Angelina. He’s weak and needs a strong, domineering woman to latch on to. Otherwise, he gets antsy and splits.

    I was sorta surprised that his marriage to Aniston lasted as long as it did. But then, men don’t leave a warm bed unless they’ve got another warm bed to jump into. He was just waiting for the right warm bed, with the right dominatrix in it.

    When you fall in love quickly, manage to get 3 kids adopted and give birth 1 natural, experience long suffering but a sudden death in the family, bad/overwhelming publicity; you go through a lot of rough times as a couple really fast.. and it’s sink into a firmer loving relationship or swim away from the whole thing for the weak of heart.. I hope they make it because they have so much love invested in four kids and themselves, plus all the other lucky kids they will spare from a hard lonely life..

    Lots of pixs of the Brad, Angelina, Shiloh, Zahara in France getting on a plane yesterday, new pixs of Angelina and Maddox in LA today as she had studio voiceover work to do. Shiloh looks almost as big as Zahara in the pixs.

  16. I think they’re in trouble. I don’t believe the gossip rags but I can’t help feel weirded out every time I see their kids. Maddox, Pax, Zahara, and Shiloh look angry, miserable, or upset. Or just vacant, like they’re not present.

    I used to think they were angry at the paparazzi, but look at little Suri… always laughing and happy. Even mini-Jennifer Garner, Violet, giggly all the time. You know these kids are in happy, stable families, showered with love. You just know it. But when you look at Brangelina’s kids, you know there’s something wrong in that house.

  17. jannre

    I just read that poor little Maddox has gone to 7 different schools in 2 years…Im no expert, but that just doesn’t seem right to me. I don’t know when these two will be over, only that they will be. I hope Brad gets the kids, then Angelina won’t be dragging them around the globe anymore…I think they would have a much more stable home with Brad.

    Wow Frances, I think you have nailed it on the head!!!

  19. patty

    Same Old Denial, but different mate. Either way i couldn’t care less about these two ho’s. BUT, i must say Brad is looking much the worse for his hook-up with the psycho-heroin addicted-bisexual skank he’s keeping time with

    Suri and Violet don’t have to contend with other children for their families’ attention. They are completely coddled. I think Angelina shows her children love, but doesn’t spoil them.

    I think the Brangelina children look normal and well-adjusted. Shiloh looks like she’s taking in the world and like she’s just amazed at all that is going on around her. Her eyes are wide and her mouth is always open. She’s a doll.

    Zahara’s personality is really beginning to shine through in photos. She looked kind of sad for a while, but with a new brother (Pax) who is close to her in age, she’s blossomed in a vey short time.

    Maddox appears to be mature for his age. He has the love and adoration of his mom and the coolest daddy in the world. I’m sure he is much admired by other kids his age because his father is Brad Pitt.

    I too hope they last as a couple. I think their family is beautiful and different.

  21. charlotte

    I forgot to comment about Pax. He looks like he is adjusting just fine. I’m sure he’s a lot happier now.

    I just don’t understand the obsessive vitriolic hatred some people have for Angelina. Even if all the things they say about her are true right now in the present, which I doubt, why are they so charged and on fire with hatred? Do they recognize some of themselves? It is a known psychological fact that what you hate in someone else are the parts of yourself you haven’t come to terms with yet.

    I just don’t understand why people hate so much. I am sure if we met these people, they’d have their own dysfunctions that are pretty similar to the name-calling ones of Angie. It’s just like the Republicans screaming slurs about gays and the next day we find out they are having sex with little boys. Look at yourself. Help yourself. So much anger only hurts YOU. It eats away at your liver and your heart. Wake up. Compassion starts with yourself and admitting your own pain and suffering.

  24. Ugh

    I wish it were all true. I do think he’ll get sick of her psycho ass sooner or later but he’ll need help getting away because he’s so far from being a real man that it’s rather sad.

    I wish they would break up already, I want to see how the Brangaloonies will find a way to blame the breakup on Jen…and then they will all go into therapy…LOL

  27. Angietothemax

    The tabs are crazy. I would normally agree where there’s smoke there’s fire but they’ve been reporting their break up for the past 3 years. Everytime the tabs write one thing the next day the exact opposite comes out. They really need to find a new subject Brad and Angie are together with their kids living their life PERIOD.

  28. T-Bone

    Yeah — I don’t trust much of what I read about this couple — on this site or elsewhere. The media is definitely playing people for profit. The one thing I do believe is that Angelina has unaddressed mental health issues. How that plays out in their relationship, I have no idea.
