It’s been a hard month, what with the on again/off again J-Lo/ARod relationship on the rocks (and on again as of this posting), but reading that Angelina Jolie is accusing ex-husband Brad Pitt of abuse, and that the kids are ready to testify against him, is almost too much.
In this post #MeToo time, we want to believe all women (and kids – talking to you Dylan Farrow), but we want to believe Brad Pitt is one of the good ones. Isn’t it enough that we’ve had Joss Whedon exposed for the predatory fake feminist he is and our Buffy empowerment dreams have gone up in vampire mist?
Of course, gossip rags tell us that this may just be a ploy by Jolie’s lawyers to get a better custody arrangement, as that negotiation has been going on for at least two years, but these are hard times for us mere mortals.
All I can do is hope that this rumor works itself out the way that the end of J-Rod did!
