I’m reeling from all the reports and posts about the sad news that broke out and was confirmed today: Brangelina is no more. Angelina Jolie’s lawyer released a statement about the divorce papers, unearthed first by TMZ that shall end their 12-year Hollywood marriage.
In this instance, the shock is real. Comments like “Love is dead,” “Breaking: our hearts,” reflect that like it or not, Brangelina was really something we thought would last. It’s nothing like the fiery romance of Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, now wrought with the ugly side of domestic violence, or the calmness by which Gwen moved on from Gavin and into Blake’s arms. Buzzfeed traces the trajectory of how Brad and Angelina changed their public personas through the marriage. Angie from wild girl to humanitarian champion, Brad from hottest heartthrob to…well, still that PLUS worthy, Oscar-winning producer. Their divorce, Buzzfeed said, marks the end of an era.
I’ll just come out and say that I’m a fan of Angelina. I bought how she changed from bisexual, sleeping with two other lovers kind of woman to mother of the year with six kids that would rival the Brady Bunch. She could have been the harlot who stole Brad from Jennifer Aniston and then left the man so carelessly when she was done with him. But she wasn’t. She’s a career woman who had a family life too.
This is Angelina’s karma for stealing a married man.
I’m sorry. The last time I checked, karma wasn’t dictated by mere mortals.
It’s so sad to suddenly dismiss Angelina and what’s she’s going through. She deserves a broken marriage, she deserves this because she was once a cheater, the people say. If Brad was leaving her and if the report on him being with Marion Cotillard were true, we could say, “Hey, what did you expect of a cheating man?”
