Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Sue Over Split Rumor
Celebrity couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are taking legal action against News Group Newspapers Ltd for spreading rumors that they have split up. Lawyer Keith Schilling said News Group’s News of the World failed to give a retraction and an apology that were demanded by the Hollywood superstars.
News of the World said in an article last month that Brangelina, as Pitt and Jolie are known, agreed to separate and share custody of their six children. The couple has three biological children and three adopted ones. The publication also said that the couple consulted with divorce lawyer Sorrell Trope to work out an agreement about splitting their close to $ 320-million combined fortune. Trope has denied ever meeting Pitt and Jolie.
The celebrity couple, who has yet to marry, called the rehashed news “false and intrusive.” Pitt and Jolie were seen together with adopted son Maddox during Sunday’s Super Bowl in Miami, evidence that all is well between the power couple.
