It’s been just over a month since T’Town’s golden couple announced their engagement, but cracks already seem to be showing in Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s relationship, leading many to speculate as to whether the two are heading towards splitsville.
Brad was at the Cannes Film Festival last week, promoting his latest flick, Killing Them Softly, where he was expected to walk the red carpet with Ange – but at the last minute, she failed to show.
“Her stylist, Jen Rade, had dresses from various designers sent to her and all the big entertainment outlets in Cannes were expecting her to come with him,” revealed celeb insiders.
The two already have a history of falling out at Cannes – in 2009, they reportedly had a huge fight at an exclusive party over Ange wanting to leave and Brad wanting to stay on to “dance a bit more and enjoy himself”. When solo Brad was questioned about his upcoming nuptials – and his no-show fiancée – at this year’s event, he was low-key to the point of being nonchalant about their plans, saying their engagement just “made sense”.
“Certainly date-wise, it’s just a rumour,” he said, adding, “We’re still hoping that we can figure out marriage equality in the States before that date.”
But the star wasted no time moping, instead spending most of his time in the French city partying with mates like P Diddy, Ray Liotta and Chris Tucker. The fun started early, with Brad spotted drinking bottles of hops in his tux ahead of his film’s premiere, where he later had a laugh with pals.
“One of the guys he was with was pulling on his cummerbund – the large sash that guys wear around their waists with a tux – saying ‘What’s this for?’ and Brad piped up, ‘It’s to catch the crumbs!’” an insider dished.
But it wasn’t until the afterparty that Brad’s big night out really began. “Brad was in top form, having a proper knees-up with the boys... They were all drinking Dhs1,440 bottles of Johnnie Walker and puffing away on cigars,” revealed a guest. “It was definitely a night for Brad to remember.”
Even movie studio heavyweight Harvey Weinstein was apparently supportive of Brad’s big blow-out, saying to party-goers, “What else are you going to do in Cannes but throw a big party and party hard?”
Ange, meanwhile, was nowhere to be seen.Will Brad continue with his wild ways, or will he reform and act like the engaged father-of-six that he is? Watch this space…
