1. Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were the most popular Hollywood, ”it” couple of better than a decade. Their ‘too good to be true’, fairy tale of a relationship in the spotlight- rode off the heels of great controversy from the fall out of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s marriage.
Rumors of infidelity ran amuck as some say Angelina was a homewrecker and she got what she deserved. But her unthinkable allegations stating Brad abused their children (3 biological, 3 adopted)are an ongoing part of the reason claimed for their split. Their divorce is still pending and the courts have found no truth to Angelina’s abuse allegations or evidence by which they can legally press charges on Brad.
Who would have thought Angelina would have pulled the abuse card to get the upper-hand?
