As much as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie seem to want everyone to believe that they have a happy and healthy relationship, it isn't always easy to buy into considering how many rumors there have been hinting that they are on the verge of a break-up. Of course, on the flip side of the coin, there are also plenty of stories claiming that they have decided to get married, and are planning on walking down the aisle any day now. So -- which is it? Are they solid as a rock, or are they headed for splitsville?
Whatever the status of their current relationship may be, one thing seems to remain constant regardless of whether they are truly in love or not. And that's the fact that no matter how hard they try, they just can't seem to kick Jennifer Aniston out of their bed.
One of the latest Brangelina rumors suggests that they got into a huge fight recently when their son, Maddox, saw something about Jennifer Aniston in a magazine and asked Brad who she was. Brad apparently told him that she was "a woman he used to be married to whom he loved very much." And then supposedly Angie walked in the room and went all ballistic over his mushy words about his ex-wife. This "incident" really sounds like more of a rumor or hearsay to me, but regardless of whether or not anything actually went down, Jen will always be a silent third party in Brad and Angie's partnership. They just can't escape her.
It can't be easy to stay content and committed to someone in a relationship when you constantly have people bringing up other people that you used to be romantically involved with. And even though it's been years since Brad and Jen split and they've both clearly moved on, they were a couple that everyone adored, and there is still quite a bit of buzz about what exactly went wrong in their marriage. It's obvious that people were rooting for them to stay together. And they very well may have -- if Angie hadn't entered the picture.
Even though the general consensus seems to be that Jolie basically stole Pitt right out from under Jen's nose, she still probably feels small pangs of jealousy whenever anyone brings up Brad's former marriage. No woman wants to be constantly sized up against her man's ex, that's for sure.
It's highly unlikely that rumors about the status of Brad and Angie's relationship will cease to exist anytime soon. But if they are in this thing for the long haul, they may want to think about buying a bigger mattress, or possibly sleeping in separate bedrooms. Because it's obvious that Jen has found herself a nice, cozy spot right in between them.
Do you think that Brad and Angie are able to fluff off all of the Jennifer Aniston talk?
