Looks like the long-awaited Brangelina wedding might not take place after all. According to a report in Star magazine, efforts to plan the big day turned into big arguments between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
“(Brad would) like a ceremony in a church in front of all his friends and relatives, with his brother Doug standing up for him,” a source revealed. “His mom, Jane, wants to help plan the wedding — and Brad’s all for it!” He even wants the event to be held in New Orleans, where Brad’s spent so much time on rebuilding efforts.
The problem? Angelina had her heart set on a small affair in France, with only their children and her brother James in attendance. The insider claimed when Angie first heard Brad’s idea, including his mother’s role, “she pitched a fit and shrieked, ‘I don’t think so!’”
With neither party willing to budge, “Angie and Brad got into a screaming match and ended up going to separate bedrooms and slamming doors. Angelina was so frustrated, she was crying.”
The source told Star the matter remains unresolved, and “friends are now thinking that if the battle continues, they might end up calling the whole marriage off.”
Madonna and Guy live worlds apartIn other couples-in-crisis news, Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie are giving each other plenty of personal space lately — like separate continents. While the estrangement doesn’t necessarily mean it’s over, In Touch reports that friends and family are concerned.
“They are not spending any time together,” Guy’s father John told the magazine. “Madonna and the kids are rushing around like mad and Guy wants to stay in England. He is very busy.”
As for Madonna’s busy ways, a friend alleges it’s all in an effort to distract herself. “She wants to forget her troubles, even for a few days.”
Apparently, the troubles involve the fact that Guy and Madonna are “polar opposites,” but the pal feels certain there are no divorce plans on the horizon. “(Madonna’s) turning 50 this year and she doesn’t want to start a new life.” And another friend agreed, telling In Touch, “She just needed a break from Guy, but they’re going to try to work it out.”
Dish on the flyThose waiting for “Heroes” hottie Hayden Panettiere to join the ranks of the Hollywood rehab crowd can keep on waiting. “I think that people look at me as just another one of those girls who’s going to screw up, like, ‘She’s going to get into drugs, and she’s going to get into the parties,’” Hayden shared in the April issue of Cosmopolitan magazine (excerpted on People.com). “I have the occasional glass of champagne when I’m celebrating something, but generally, I don’t drink. I’m a pizza-and-a-movie girl.” … Scarlett Johansson finds it’s “pretty cool” that she appeals more to older men than guys her age. “Older men understand women much better,” the 23-year-old said in a quote on ContactMusic.com. “They usually have more taste. I take it as a compliment.”
