Random Fuzzy 4

ET




E!


In the photos above you can clearly see he is not wearing any jewelry.  So  you should not expect that he will be wearing any tomorrow.



*******


His wife left him and filed for divorce, they've been separated for two months, they've not had any direct contact until very recently, and it looks like for the foreseeable future he can only have limited contact with their children who will be living with her.


Under those circumstances, if this was anyone other than Brad, would you expect this person to wear his wedding ring?


I think what we WISH may be different from what we should expect.


For all practical purposes, they're no longer a couple, just still legally married.
And it's Angelina who literally pushed him away since he was pleading with her that he was willing to do anything.
But of course we all know why she did it.  And so does he.
He knows she was looking after their children -- being the "great" mother he gushed about even after they split.

And this is just one of the reasons why regardless of what jewelry he may or may not be wearing, regardless of however long it may take, I feel he will do everything he can to win her back.
And I think when he has, that is when we will see the ring.
It's not a symbol of his legal status.  It is a symbol of their relationship.
And right now, they are not together.


She has made it clear that she is receptive.  She wants the family to "heal" and get back together.
But she also wants him to convince her that he is back to being the man she married and not whatever he transformed to these past few months.



*******


HE is the offending party
HE is the one who was abusive
HE is the one the children have problems with
And SHE is the one who filed for divorce from HIM

So if there is anyone who LOOKS like she wants to leave its
HER leaving HIM.


And perhaps why SHE HAS to be the one reassuring that she wants to "heal" the family.

  1. One poster said he's not wearing his ring. So....we'll just have to wait and see how their story will go once the investigation is over.

    He looks like he lost some weight though and he under stress even though he's smiling in the photo.

  2. I had hoped he wouldn't remove the ring until or if the divorce was final. Technically, he's still married. I suppose Angie has removed her's as well.

  4. Clearly no ring on the finger. There's where he always wear it or am I wrong?

  5. To answer your question Fussy, yes, I would expect another person to be wearing their ring. As I said, he's technically married still. No ring means he's available, right? Its okay to start seeing women now too since he's not wearing his ring? Sorry, don't mean to sound harsh, just so frustrated and saddened to watch it come to this.

    1. Yes, they can both start dating. If I remember correctly he started dating Angelina 3 - 4 months after he and Jennifer filed for divorce.
      They're technically no longer a "couple", just legally married

    2. True. But different situation. He wasn't a father of 6 then.

    3. I don't know, I mean Jolie left him and she filed for divorce close to 2 months ago I don't think any other man would continue to wear it either if that was the case. I don't think he would start dating either this is a completely different situation in my opinion and he and his family are in the midst of horrendous crisis with him be the catalyst of unfortunately.

  6. Wow, Fussy, I know us fans were doubters, but to read that you, the optimist in this situation, are saying that what we wish is different from what we should expect is sad. I guess, it is sad evening anyhow, and the beginning of the new era, not only for us, Brad and Angelina fans, but for all the Americans.

    1. Sara, Fussy wrote:: "Under those circumstances, if this was anyone other than Brad, would you expect this person to wear his wedding ring?" followed by: "I think what we WISH may be different from what we should expect."

      I read it as a rhetorical question Fussy is asking and saying in general terms we might not expect someone else to keep wearing their wedding ring under the same circumstances. I don't see it as her doubting.

  7. Fussy i'm just heart broken seeing him without his wedding ring, he just walked away I just thought he might hang on seems like there will be no reconciliation .

    1. Lune lace, I don't think that he's just walked away back into single-man-hood simply because his ring isn't on his finger. I'm sorry but I don't think we should surmise so much when we truly know so little. They may or may not reconcile but if they do, it's going to take time. The hurting is easy compared to the healing and they apparently have much to do in that area; all of them. They aren't even in communication with each other directly.

  9. I'm crushed, devastated and sad. And I'm happy I held on till the last bit. My sincere best prayers for Brad, Angie, Mad, Pax, Zee, Shi, Knoxy and Vivi. If God grant me one wish right now, it's for the pain to be taken away from your heart. All, 8 of you. GOD :'(

  10. Did he take off his ring when he and Aniston announced their separation? Or when he was photographed with Angelina publicly in Kenya?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Weird that he looks so happy during this time. And not talking about divorce- talking about his kids. He's very selfish.

  12. I hope the ange fans stop supporting him, it's a wrap.

  13. I try to be confident, but it will certainly take a long time for the family to restructure again .... I think Angelina put the children first, she did not think about Brad or her, because of the gravity of what happened and what could happen With the children ...... Now I think that Brad may not even understand that it was necessary to do what Angelina did. I just hope they have peace and they can be better parents for the children .....

    There are 6 children of different ages, with different personalities and each one was affected in a way. I think attitudes are bigger and worth more than a ring, a necklace or a divorce.
    In the photo, Brad looks very thin .... and I hope that he has the opportunity and strength to deal with whatever problem he was having, since the 6 children deserve to have the father they always had.
    It was a different year, we did not see Brad alone with the kids, we saw Angelina's brother much more with her and the kids. I do not know what happened, even at Father's Day he preferred to travel alone for the 24h of Le Mans 2016.

  14. I am very sad because it is his way of saying words

    1. But Jolie filed for the divorce and she is probably no longer wearing hers either, so at this moment they both seem to want this but who knows things can always change they need time and if not well hopefully they can atleast be friends again.

    2. I was thinking the exact same Melody. Brads words, to his wife and us, no ring, no couple, divorce. The opposite would have been to wear the ring and tell her and the world 'I don't want a divorce.'

      Fussy, your logic and hopeful analysis since this news broke has been a great comfort, but its getting harder and harder to hang on to hope.

      He's given me insomnia!

  15. I think Angie had to put the children first even if it meant sacrificing the marriage, and that can be very hard for a man to take.
    Also whatever happened between him and his children may mean that he has lost authority within the family,that is also detrimental to a marriage.
    His children may no longer see him as their protector.
    The arrangement where Angie has sole physical custody in an open ended way until there has been sufficient healing says a lot.
    That healing could take months.
    It's kind of disturbing that the protection from their father is what is paramount.
    It can't have been something small that happened on the plane.

    1. She had no choice though, it had to be their kids. If DCFS thought she was protecting him as well she could of then been investigsted and they would remove the kids from her care. It was no way they could fight the DCFS case as an united couple they both would have been both accused. Its just horrible situation all around.

  16. Meant to write.
    It's kind of disturbing that protection from their father is what is paramount,as far as the children are concerned.

    1. The event was for his production company Plan B film Moonlight which he and his partners are producing. CAA hosted it for Jenkins the director.

      Delete
    2. His producing partners produced the movie he didn't. So he didn't need to be there he WANTED to be there.

      Delete
    3. I doubt Brad's appearance at this event will sell even one more ticket. Small movie, low marketing profile. This was a soft launch to get him in the public again.

    4. Based on his previous divorce we're around 4 weeks away from knowing who Brad's dating via headlines. Won't that be fun.

  19. sad sad sad. That photo of him smiling big with Julia tho. How he can do that? I` m not even taking about Angie I`m talking about his kids and all they`ve been trough this last two months. Heartless.

    1. Agree. Those kids have been on lock-down for 2 months now. Must be maddening for active children.

  20. I wish Angie and the kids did not have to deal with him for the rest of their lives. They deserve better than this. Really the photo of him smiling is sickening. Don`t worry Brad you `ve made very clear you moved on. We get it.

  21. I don't think people should be upset about him going out and being with friends.
    He needs the framework of his professional life to hold him up while dealing with the collapse of his personal life.
    If he loses that he loses everything.
    He also needs friends, whatever happened, the hurt must be tremendous.
    Also his failings re his family are public knowledge and that is not easy to deal with.
    No one expected this to be his story, so to hold your head up in public in these circumstances is very hard.

    1. gennline, I love your post SO much.. He and Julia have known and worked with each other since the 90's and there seems a real affection and caring from her in the photos. I honestly feel great empathy for Brad because I think his actions are primarily why he's not with his family and he's been living with this alone.. The very person he bounced everything off of, confided in, his best friend, lover and life partner also happens to be his estranged wife who has the comfort of their children's presence and so I won't begrudge him this moment of levity.

  22. I read a By The Sea interview that Brad did and maybe it was translated weirdly/wrong but he said that life as a parent was boring/cumbersome. Maybe it is at times but kids aren't here to entertain you, He went crying around for a decade or two about wanting children and here he is smiling like a tool after making his children feel unsafe around him,smh :(
    Reading their interviews from *just* one year ago is depressing. Angie called him her life partner,the man she will grow old with. Brad said the *only* thing he had in common with his character was the desire to fight to save their love. Was all that a lie?
    He forgot to add another common thing: that he could "drink very,very well" which he said in a different interview.
    It's painful to watch them throw in the towel and I am pissed at both for it. The children will be shuffled every week between parents who can't seem to get their heads out of their butts.
    He is going to be Mr. Hollywood later today,the golden boy, at a screening/premiere of an R rated movie in which he probably gets naked with another woman, and everyone will rave about it. Then he will go to China to do it again. While Angie and the kids are locked away cause of the mess he created and she is getting blamed for. I understand it's a job but even Angie sat out the premiere of Unbroken cause of the chickenpox. I get that chickenpox is contagious but this is a family crisis with 6 minor kids going through a very public difficult time. The least he could do is defend his children and their mother by saying something, anything! He will ignore the elephant in the room, like if the last 12 years didn't matter.
    Traveling alone, dating young starlets, going back to his Hollywood 'friends'.Becoming a 'Hollywood'cliché.
    I know she's the one who filed but whatever. Sorry for my rant. A sad bitter 'ending' for them, I would have never imagined :(

  23. He might be smiling, but the man looks sad, broken, he has aged a lot in only two months.
    That is not a happy man in my eyes.
    I think they are done and over, but I don't think he's happy. Life goes on and he has to work.
