Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt repeatedly are the subject of rumors that their marriage is crumbling. The most recent allegations that Jolie and Pitt are experiencing marriage problems comes from Life & Style, which claims that the two are involved in “crisis talks” in an attempt to preserve their relationship, noted Gossip Cop, which investigated that report.
The claims result from the fact that Angelina was in New York while Brad was immersed in the excitement over the Le Mans auto race in France. When she viewed the pictures showing her husband holding the starting flag at the car race across the world, Jolie supposedly realized that the two have become “far apart…as a couple.”
Consequently, Angelina reportedly decided to hold “crisis talks [to] save their marriage.” The plan supposedly called for the two to meet up at their Chateau Miraval estate and rekindle their romance, with a source alleging that Jolie had it all plotted.
“[Angelina] feels that if they really pour their hearts out to each other over sunset walks through the [estate’s] vineyards, she can keep Brad by her side and reignite their romance.”
In addition, Life & Style claimed that the problems in their marriage included Jolie feeling jealous about Pitt’s relationship with his film co-stars Marion Cotillard and Lizzy Caplan as well as her disinclination to focus on her health. The magazine also previously alleged that Angelina was feeling “betrayed” by Brad as a result of his relationship with those co-stars.
Other claims included that Jolie “threw him out of their bedroom” and that their marriage is “unsalvageable.” However, those allegations, as well as the report of “crisis talks” in an attempt to “save their marriage,” are not true, a source told Gossip Cop.
So what actually caused Angelina and Brad to be separated recently, with Jolie in the United States and Pitt in France? The physical separation resulted from each pursuing very different passions. While Pitt was in France taking on the role of official starter of the 84th Le Mans 24 Hours, Angelina was in Washington, D.C., to discuss World Refugee Day, reported X 17.
“If I ask people for anything on this day, it is to take a moment and to truly grasp what a refugee crisis of today’s magnitude means for peace and security of the world,” said the passionate actress. “I ask people to understand that with 65 million people displaced by conflict, we are facing a world of wars we cannot ignore or turn our backs on.”
But amid her passion for political matters, Jolie did not neglect her children. She and her son Knox, 7-years-old, enjoyed a Mommy-and-Me day during her visit to New York City, reported the Daily Mail.
Jolie treated her youngest son to visits to two separate toy stores, holding him tightly amid the crowds. Knox is one of her three biological children with Pitt. The little boy had an action figure and coloring book as part of his shopping trip goodies.
While Angelina was busy in the United States, Brad was enjoying his visit to France. Pitt proudly waved the flag to start off the 84th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, reported People.
Ranking as the endurance racing’s most historic active sports car event, the race has occurred each year in France since 1923. Because of intense rain, drivers were permitted to go through several trial laps prior to the flag from Brad.
Pitt wasn’t the only celebrity at the race. Also present were Patrick Dempsey (who had the role of 2016 Ambassador), Jackie Chan (who is part owner of the BAXI DC Racing team), Keanu Reeves, and Jason Statham.
