Angelina Jolie tipped off paps about getaway with Brad Pitt while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Jann Wenner, co-founder of Rolling Stone, is all set to release his memoir 'Like a rolling stone' on Tuesday, September 13. According to PageSix, Wenner has revealed some juicy anecdotes from his professional life in the book, including the story behind the controversial 2005 picture of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
The former US Weekly owner revealed that in 2005, a photographer who worked with the US Weekly received a tip from Angelina Jolie who was staying at a resort on the coast of Africa with Brad Pitt. He was still married to Jennifer Aniston at the time.
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.
Recently, Brad Pitt was sued for $250 million by Angelina Jolie's former company for allegedly stealing their wine business. In response to Pitt's lawsuit against Jolie for allegedly selling her ownership interest in Chateau Miraval, a French castle and wine company, Nouvele LLC filed a cross-claim on Tuesday, September 6.
