      I know not one or two girls who say they want this kind of relationship. They say this people are big but their marriage is a success! They are always ooooohing and ahhhhhhing but here comes the crash and everyone is happy that karma has been served because of Jennifer Anniston.

      Moral of my epistle: People aren’t happy for you, don’t believe the hype. They tell you they are happy with your relationship but they are silently praying that it fails! Abi is it today that people break up with people to date or even marry other people? Many many women break up everyday to date richer men and men too. This world has turn upside down o!

      I’m confused o. So all this time BN has featured this couple was it only mistresses and side chicks that were gushing over them?
      I always used to say no judge should let these two divorce. They have adopted children from all parts of the world who are still young enough to be seriously scarred by this. They’d sha better make sure that Zahara always has shea butter.
      Meanwhile BN do you guys look at your site after you put up those adverts? Currently, the headlines don’t show until you open the article, and in some cases the articles themselves don’t show (like this one). Only hyperlinks can be seen randomly on the page.

      Go to the state Social welfare unit. I think its under ministry of youth and sports.
      That’s the legal process for adoption.
      All orphanages that have children for adoption have to go through that Unit

    Wetin old fire wood see, new one go still see am. Got this epistle from dailymail for those who care to know what happened in addition to the cheating allegations. Thank me later ?

    I could say the divorce announcement is a shock, but it’s not,’ a long-time friend of Brad and Angelina told

    ‘This divorce deal has been brewing for a long time.’

    The friend said it wasn’t long after the couple tied the knot in 2014 that cracks began to show in their 12-year-long relationship.

    ‘When Angelina underwent her mastectomy in 2013, her health and life in general became a priority for her,’ added the source.

    ‘Her views on life changed. Suddenly she saw herself walking in her late mother’s shoes – and she was no longer that wild, fun loving woman she used to be, she was taking things a lot more seriously.

    Her mom, Marcheline Bertrand, who died of ovarian cancer in 2007, had always been Angelina’s biggest influence, friends say.

    ‘Brad was supportive, and wanted to be there for her, so they decided to marry – more for the sake of their six children than themselves. They wanted the kids to have the security of knowing their parents were committed because they had been very affected by the their mom’s ill health.’

    But it was not long after the wedding, that things began to change for the couple.

    ‘Angelina wasn’t into wasting time on frivolous matters. Brad felt it was important for them to live life to the fullest, but as the months passed, Angelina seemed to withdraw, making the children and her work with the UN a priority.

    ‘Angelina wasn’t really interested in doing any project that took her away from the children and home, but Brad was still wanting the wanderlust, adventure-filled life that first attracted him to her.’
    The friend said that the underlying reasons behind the Pitt-Jolie split are the same that caused him to divorce Jennifer Aniston — ‘he was bored stiff with the sedate, quiet lifestyle they were leading.

    ‘When he was with Jennifer, it was Angelina who provided the excitement that was missing in his life. But when Angelina shifted gears and became more serious – that wasn’t what Brad thought he was buying into.’

    Pitt also wanted to continue tinkering with building work on Chateau Miraval, their sprawling home in the South of France, but Jolie was content with it as it was and ‘wanted to just sit back and enjoy the life they had created.’

    The couple are now reportedly trying to sell that property.

    And Pitt had thrown himself back into acting, with six projects since their marriage He is also about to start on a sequel to World War Z which will again take him away from his wife and children

    ‘Angelina did not approve of this movie because she knew it would once again take him away from her and the family when she felt they needed to spend more time together,’ said the friend.

    Pitt, who dabbles in architecture — he designed more than 100 homes in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina — had also signed papers to star work on a $1.5 billion resort project in Croatia. ‘He’s a huge part of the planning. He can’t wait to get started,’ said the friend.

    The Croatia project allowed him to meet some of the world’s leading architects and learn from them, said the friend. Pitt traveled to Zablace on the Dalmatian coast earlier this month

    ‘For the past year Brad and Angelina have been leading separate lives. He’s always flying off to one place or another, while she stays home with the kids. With each month that passed, Brad and Angelina grew further apart,’ said the source, ‘Friends have been predicting tha tdivorce was on the horizon.

    ‘Now it’s come to pass, and it’s no surprise.’

      And what about the alleged sexual affairs he has with Marion Cotillard his co-star? The friend forgot to add that?

    • Missappleberry

      September 21, 2016 at 1:13 am

      Here’s your answer from dailymail @Marlvina

      A source close to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie claims that the actress was so jealous of Marion Cotillard that she refused to speak with the French star after meeting her on the set of the film Allied.

      ‘Angelina completely ignored Marion on the set, and when Marion tried to talk to her she just looked the other way,’ said the source.

      ‘Marion was devastated, here she is thinking she is going to meet this great UN ambassador and instead Angelina refuses to speak to the woman because of her own jealousy.’

      The source also said that rumors of an affair between Pitt and Cotillard are ‘100 per cent false,’ and that Pitt’s main concern at this time is his children.

      ‘He does not want them reading anything negative in the press about himself or their mother,’ said the source.

      ‘He’s not going to get dirty.’

      As for the reason for Jolie’s jealousy the source said: ‘Because of the way woman view her she projects her own stuff onto innocent women like Marion.’

      The source then added that Marion was ‘one of the sweetest women in the world,’ and still happily dating her longtime partner Guillaume Canet.

      Cotillard, 40, has been in a relationship with actor and writer Guillaume Canet, 43, since 2007, and the couple have a 5-year-old son Marcel.

      Reps for the three actos did not respond to requests for comment from

    Lol @missappleberry, I had to double-check if I was reading a BN post or a comment,that was something, r u into investigative journalism bcos you laid out d names,places et all,and d way u laid it all out..u may consider being part of d BN team, #don’twasteyatalent

    My two cents is that I remember after they had dated for a while and someone asked Angelina if she was considering getting married to Brad and she said ” the relationship was just fine bcos she finds that most times people have a gud relationship and then when they get married the marriage doesn’t last, as if the wedding jinxed the relationship” now I don’t know if there’s some truth to that or its just coincidence cos after being in a relationship for 10yrs get married and the marriage is barely above 2yrs????? What dramatic change can occur in 2 yrs that didnt show up in 10yrs? Really sad…..its also y Oprah doesn’t want a wedding and she’s been with stedman for forever!!!! What r we missing here???

      We are missing that fact that people tend to get lax about working to keep their partner happy once they get married. Its like…..”why do i need to do all this when i already got the cow and the milk?’ Life gets in the way. Shit happens!

    What Marion???!!!!!!
    Can’t be! I think it has nothing to do with the kids because she is asking for shared custody. If it was about the kids, she will fight for sole custody.
    Bringing Marion into it right now, I hope it is not true. Marion is so talented yet so underrated. This could ruin her career. She seems so kind, so innocent, the way she carries herself on the red carpet, on interviews and all.
    But thinking about it again, God does not sleep.
    What if Angie chose to leave because she wants to set her life straight. You know from the post shared from the Daily mail, it seems her ill heath helped her re-evaluate her life. At least thats what I learnt from her decision to be less wild and focus on family and charity.
    What if this is her way of just turning everything over and just setting everything straight. A short story here, I know of a woman that married a man when his first wife could not give him kids. She was the second wife and then within a short time, she got pregnant, gave him a boy and another boy and then a girl. His wife couldn’t conceive for more than twenty years. All of a sudden this second wife left, she cut ties with the man, they co-parent and that is it and she keeps saying that, it was her way of living right with God.
    I know American (especially whites) think differently but maybe….

      It’s hard for Nigerian women to leave their homes. Maybe the man you’re talking about went broke or something.

    • Missappleberry

      September 21, 2016 at 8:33 am

      She didn’t file for joint custody though. The divorce papers is on dailymail. She signed physical custody to herself alone, legal custody to herself and Brad, and then child visitation rights to Brad. So it’s obvious there’s something more beneath it all. Anyways as the week unfolds, we will know what actually went wrong.

    She did not marry him for the money. She has hers in excess.
    That man is not close to broke. He did not ask her to leave, he tried to get her back and all…

    But the way we think of Nigerian women sef. It is hard for a Nigerian woman to leave her home?….

    I am indifferent about this news but I pulled this from another article.

    “But what happens when the two people having an affair — emotional or physical — end up together? The outlook isn’t great. Kaiser points out that second marriages (and third, in Jolie’s case) have a higher rate of divorce, as do marriages that come out of affairs. “You put that combination together,” says Kaiser, “and you’re walking into a challenging situation.”

    Often, an affair offers excitement, emotional escape, sexual intensity, and maybe even a newfound raison d’être. “I’ve had a lot of clients tell me that their new open, public relationship is boring,” explains Kaiser. “There was excitement in the hiding, and that boredom can make a person seek excitement elsewhere.”

    The other issue? Insecurity. “Oftentimes with people who end up together, one or both of the people are more insecure about cheating,” said Kaiser. “They did it before — that insecurity and lack of trust needs to be talked about up front, because secret concerns and stress create bigger problems. If you’re worried about it, you need to talk about it.”

    A lot of this comes down to character, said Kaiser. “There are people who cheat and will never do it again, and there are people who don’t actually have a moral problem with cheating and will do it again.”

    Kaiser offers a word to the wise: “If someone has been capable of being disrespectful and dishonest with someone they cared about in the past, there is a possibility they can do that to you. Anyone can cheat, but this is a bigger risk.”
