Divorces are always unique because every couple is unique. This is why it is so hard to predict what is going to happen over the course of the divorce process. Because of this, other divorces are important to watch, as they can give you an idea of what you can expect if you decide to go through with a divorce of your own.
When celebrities split, their trials and tribulations are often exaggerated far beyond what regular people can expect in our own divorce. Having millions of dollars, egos, and the pressure of the media dissecting every moment of an incredibly painful and intimate process changes everything. However, there are still bits and pieces of a celebrity divorce that you can do well to note because odds are that something like it will happen in your own. One of these aspects is the role of rumor in the divorce of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Divorce
After two years of marriage and a dozen years spent with each other, Angelina Jolie filed divorce papers on her husband, Brad Pitt, on Monday, September 19, 2016, in California. Jolie cited irreconcilable differences, though California’s divorce law does not offer the option of filing for a fault-based divorce, unlike New York.
Rumors Abound in Divorce
Ever since the moment the papers were filed, the rumor mill has spun. Did Pitt have an affair with Marion Cotillard? Is Cotillard’s pregnancy related to that affair? Did Jolie suspect something was going on between the two, and send a private detective to investigate? Was Pitt abusing his children?
Rumors of marital infidelity are common to hear before, during, and even after a divorce is filed. Unsurprisingly, though, they are rarely proven because such acts occur behind closed doors and both people involved are keenly interested in keeping it a secret. Child abuse is also a common claim, as well, though not as common as infidelity. The rumors of child abuse are strange, though, because they claim that, even though the Los Angeles Police Department was not investigating, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was – a rare flip in hierarchy, if true.
