The now-divorced couple was rumored to be dating back then. The duo had worked together on the movie 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith', which had generated plenty of rumors that they were also an off-screen couple. However, nothing had been confirmed at that point in time. The photographer was not only told where the pair were staying but also given details about the time of their daily walk, along with a suggestion of where and how the duo could be “secretly” photographed. “We got the photo, we got the proof,” Wenner writes in his book. "We had the worldwide scoop, the debut of Brangelina." He added, "The tipster was Angelina."

Brangelina went on to become one of Hollywood's most notorious love stories. The relationship would last well over a decade, including six children and multiple collaborative projects. The duo fell in love on the sets of the action-packed 2005 blockbuster 'Mr & Mrs Smith', where they first met, while Pitt was still married to Aniston. The pair tied the knot in 2014 at the lavish Château Miraval estate in Correns, France, in an intimate ceremony that involved their many children. In 2016, just two years after taking the holy vows, the couple decided to part ways and became embroiled in a contentious legal battle over various issues.
