You would think that an earthquake has hit LA as Hollywood megastars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie call it quits. Rumors are swirling everywhere like aftershocks since the news broke that Jolie filed papers Monday to end her two-year marriage. CNN says she cited irreconcilable differences. So much for finding and keeping love in the limelight. Brangelina is no more. It’s all come to a sorry end, the way it did with Brad’s first wife Jennifer Aniston.
But just when we thought things couldn’t get any worse, comes news from Madame Tussauds that the museum has separated the wax figures they have of Brad and Angelina. A spokesman in the U.S. provided this statement for Over the Hill Mom:
“Following the news that has shocked celebrity watchers worldwide, we can confirm we have separated Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s figures. Both figures remain in the attraction, now at a respectful distance from each other.” – Madame Tussauds Hollywood & Las Vegas.
The announcement was confirmed on Twitter.

The Twitter announcement came from Madame Tussauds London. The wax museum founded in London has branches in a number of major cities. I’ve been to the museums in London and Hollywood. This certainly is crushing news. I’m sure that many of us will wax nostalgic and regret that things aren’t what they used to be.
The couple has six children. We all know that divorce is tough on kids. Some experts say that a friendly divorce is better on kids than a nasty marriage.
Her lawyer has released a statement to Reuters asking for privacy saying Jolie will not comment at this time. It looks like Angelina will be taking the high road, even if Brad has been the pits.
