Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce has been frontpage news ever since it was announced earlier this week.

Shockwaves are still rippling through Hollywood, and the split has seemingly been covered in every possible direction by the media. But newspaper column inches still have to be filled and web traffic targets met.

Coverage is now rolling into silly season, chiefly a report from bastion of truth The National Enquirer claiming that a photo of Pitt and Gomez at last year’s Golden Globes made Jolie ‘blow a gasket’.

Both Pitt and Gomez appeared in Globes-nominated drama The Big Short, and were snapped chatting backstage at the awards show.

A pretty innocuous photo, right? Wrong!

“Angie blew a gasket when she saw Selena’s Instagram, and heard through friends about how Brad and Selena flirted so shamelessly,” the ‘source’ said.

“Now Selena is bragging to everyone that Brad is gung ho to make another movie with her. Selena is going around jokingly calling Brad ‘my future husband’, and Angie is obviously none too pleased.”

Of all the ridiculous rumours and hearsay in the Pitt/Jolie split, this one might be the most ludicrous. Or is it? loaded has rounded up five other Brad Pitt photos that would’ve probably made Angie equally livid.
