Don't Mess With Brad and Angie!!! If You Say They Aren't a Couple They'll Sue You And Win

Back in January the British newspaper News of the World published a story claiming that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were heading for splitsville and had met with divorce attorneys (the longtime couple isn’t married). They obviously messed with the wrong celebrities because Brad and Angie didn’t take the accusations lightly.

The couple brought legal action against the paper, arguing it had made false and intrusive allegations. They demanded a retraction of the sensational story but none was given.

The divorce lawyer that the newspaper claimed the couple had visited even admitted that he didn’t even know them.

“When the News of the World failed to publicly retract the allegations and apologize for them — thereby leaving their readers in the dark as to the true position — the couple felt they had no alternative than to sue,” the couple’s attorney, Keith Schilling, said in a statement. “Today’s victory marks the end of the litigation brought by Brad and Angelina.”

The publication’s owner, News Group Newspapers, has agreed to publish an apology and pay Pitt and Jolie a settlement, which they intend to donate to charity. They have declined to comment further.

She is so FAKE….She makes me want to puke! If she was real…i could probably give her a chance but eeeewwww…. she is evil. I don’t know why I even bother clicking on her stuff. I guess maybe for once I am expecting her and brad to be real. Someone needs to ask her how much it cost to fly her and her camera crew to these countries she goes to. When she could just as well do her documentries her in the united states and all the money that is used to fly all of them to those countries could actually be used and be giving to those countries. And does anyone realize that even non profit organizations have employees that are on payroll. Someone ask her how much her and brad’s paycheck are for their Jolie-Pitt foundation. Oh not to mention the soldiers that are provided to her when she goes to those countries like our soldiers don’t have nothing better to do but protect her.
