Random Weekend Fuzzies 2
Laura Wasser, Angelina's divorce lawyer, is a good friend of Harvey Levin, the head of TMZ. So it was probably widely expected that TMZ would be their outlet of choice.
Direct, exclusive access now to both sides while the rest of the entertainment news world struggles to get one reliable quote.
Very early on, Us had a good source:
“The final divorce decision was only made one week ago,” the insider tells Us ...“An incident took place and prompted [Angelina] to act and file.”But it seems the source stopped talking to Us and their subsequent reports read like the editor of one
While details of the incident remain unknown, the insider tells Us that it “affected the entire family.”
She still says Brad is the love of her life, and the d vc vc cc c c. Cv cc. Cc. Cc c c v c. ecision has weighed heavy on her heart,” the source adds. “Her priority now is the children.” The Oscar-winning actress and director is presently in New York, according to the insider. "
of the bottom feeding tabs had taken over.
People's Mary Green has interviewed both on numerous occasions, but her name has seldom appeared on recent stories. One that did quoted a "family member"
"Her family is broken and she is in agony," the relative says. "Her children are recovering from the events that brought about the filing of the divorce."
The family member adds that the mother of six's primary concern is for her children.
"Her focus is on their health and emotional well-being."
After securing Brad's spin on the plane incident, People of late has had minimal access and Mary Green hasn't written anything new.
While I get entertainment news on various feeds, I don't seek out gossip sites. The one exception is Lainey. I sometimes disagree with her points and she's not above rabble rousing to get hits. But she does have sources and she's more responsible and a much better writer than other gossips.
Right after the news broke she wrote:
Brange have always maintained a sexy kind of tension between them. It was a passionate relationship. They fought, they made up. All these years my sources have never worried that that was a problem, because it was just the nature of their connection. But in June, it was different. “It’s never been this bad”
....Angelina’s allegedly been frustrated about some of Brad’s habits. The rumours about the drinking are consistent with what I’m hearing. The way one source put it, she “wanted him to get his sh-t together”.
....Every source I’ve talked to today maintains that she was still in love with him but that for her, she doesn’t think he’s in a place where he can be “positive around the family”. All sources tell me that he was blindsided by her decision to file. And that the decision to file was made very recently. Like inside 10 days. When I pressed on what the urgency was, most of the sources declined to specify, with one source saying only that it was “very delicate, a really sensitive thing”
So at least one of Lainey's sources has access to their inner circle.
Judging from her subsequent posts, it appears that source may not have been ready or willing to share more information -- at least not for a while.
Some time within the last two weeks, Lainey apparently got a heads up that led her to hold off writing about them.
Over the past week or so there have been several key developments each of which would normally merit a post, but she has exercised admirable self-control and held off.
What could be the quid pro quo that would make up for all the lost clicks from the recent stories she didn't write a post on?
Brad should by now have unfettered access to his whole family. If his drug and alcohol tests all came back negative, the DCFS is probably close to declaring that the children are safe to live with him.
So maybe next week?
