Brangelina: the power couple splits

Brangelina: the power couple splits

As rumours fly about Hollywood's most celebrated pairing and splitting, in the end the couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie called it quits, throwing away the much advertised Brangelina brand by the Hollywood roadside, reports news and gossip sites.

Speculations began with the report that the live-in couple had seen a Los Angeles divorce lawyer to discuss the division of their numerous properties and the custody of their six children, three of whom they have had together as biological parents and three adopted.

Around their liaison lies the surprise and the suspicion as to how the pair could walk red carpets until the doomsday and never quite make it into the company of Richard Burton-Elizabeth Taylor, Fairbanks‑Pickford and Bogart-Bacall.

But it mostly reflects the fallout from Brangelina's original entanglement, as Pitt had been married for five years to Jennifer Aniston when he fell in love with Angelina Jolie, while they were filming in the sets of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Puffy-lipped and flaunting as many as 13 tattoos, Angie had previously been married to country singer and actor Billy Bob Thornton.

Initially there were denials about their relationship from both Jolie and Pitt, but immediately after Brad and Aniston filed for divorce, Brangelina were spotted at the beaches in Kenya. And it took another five years for them too to split! Who is next, for both?
