Adele dedicated her concert in New York City to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on the day the couple’s divorce was announced. She told the audience that it was the “end of an era” and she was “really, really sad.” You can see the video and get the details right here.
Adele began her remarks to the sold-out audience at New York City’s Madison Square Garden asking if she could “Let’s not ignore the elephant in the room. Did everybody hear about Brad and Angelina?”
Continuing, she said, “I don’t like gossiping, and private lives should be private, but I feel like it’s the end of an era, so I’m dedicating this show tonight to them.”
She went on to say, “I’m really, really sad. I was shocked when I woke up this morning.”
The news did take the celebrity world by surprise. Social media was in uproar. The hashtag #Brangelina trended worldwide for hours on Twitter. It’s news that crossed over into mainstream, much like the report of a natural disaster or a political scandal. The 41-year-old Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from 52-year-old Brad Pitt issuing a terse statement via her attorney in part; “This decision was made for the health of the family.”
For his part, Brad Pitts’ written statement, equally terse, “I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids.” He went on to make a plea for privacy.
TMZ quoted unnamed sources who alleged to know the underlying causes, including Brad Pitts’ substance abuse — specifically, his marijuana smoking and possible alcohol abuse — as well as anger issues and parenting style led her to file.
Yes, the era of Bragelina is over. It started infamously, on the set of ‘Mr and Mrs Smith” as the onscreen chemistry was only equaled by the offscreen chemistry that led to breaking up Pitt’s marriage to Jennifer Aniston. The couple took up together in 2005 and have been the Hollywood It couple ever since, tying the knot in 2014 in France, after years together. That is until now.
Page Six claims that history repeated itself, so to speak. The publication alleges that Angelina Jolie hired a private investigator who confirmed that Brad Pitt was having affair with his costar in the World War II drama ‘Allied,’ 40-year-old French actress Marion Cotillard.
The couple has six children in total. Angelina Jolie originally had three adopted children, Maddox, Zahara and Pax. Together, the couple has three biological children, a daughter, Shiloh, and twins, son Knox and daughter Vivienne. In the divorce papers, Jolie is requesting physical custody of all of them.
