A common phrase, "Karma's a bitch," is rearing it's ugly head in regards to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Don't get me wrong, the duo does a lot of good things for the world and have done more than their fair share of adoptions. But there is a ding they can't erase, and it comes from over a decade ago with Mr and Mrs Smith. When rumors began that Pitt and Jolie were having an on-set affair, fans scratched their heads considering that Jennifer Aniston was smoking hot. She is still smoking hot to put it plainly, as evidenced by Horrible Bosses and We're the Millers. The 2005 release resulted in the end of Pitt/Aniston and the rise of Branjelina.
Fans might have not been all for the relationship at first. But then we saw how irresistible Angelina looked in Mr and Mrs Smith and we began to understand. Add in the fact that the new pair became crusaders for just about every good cause, and we let the affair slide.
Allied the New Source of Divorce
It feels like deja vu in regards to Brad Pitt. Following old habits, rumors suggested that Brad Pitt and Allied co-star Marion Cotillard were become er, close on set. According to Page Six, Angelina heard the same rumor and also suspected that something was up. A private investigator was hired, and he not only discovered that Brad Pitt pretends to be single while away, but was also having an affair with Cotillard.
For fans of the relationship, this sucks. Jolie quickly filed for divorce asking for physical custody of their six children. Lawyers, kids, and more lawyers. Never fun. But it seems that some are responding to the news in fun ways.
Allied TV Spot Arrives Just in Time
I'm not sure if this is just coincidence or genius marketing. But, in regards to Paramount Pictures, the studio has given audiences an extended TV spot for Allied on the exact day news of the divorce broke. Hey, you have to laugh to keep from crying, right? As you watch the new TV spot, you won't be able to deny that Pitt and Cotillard seem to have natural chemistry. When they kiss, they mean it. Literally.
Madame Tussauds Splits Brad and Angelina
Moving quick on the news, the wax museum Madame Tussauds made an announcement on their end.
"Following the news that has shocked celebrity watchers worldwide, we can confirm we have separated Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's figures."
They explain the move was appropriate and made sure the two were a "respectful distance from each other." And the wax figures will not be lonely.
"Angelina is keeping Nicole Kidman company and Brad Pitt is with his several time co-star Morgan Freeman."
Madame Tussauds went to Twitter to showcase the new positions of the wax figures.

Yep, very respectful.
Update: Various sources claim that blame on Cotillard for the divorce may be a bit early. The general consensus is the divorce was caused by the "single lifestyle" and possible drug use. "Russian hookers" have also been mentioned, but might as well just take that as tabloid rumor as well.
