Rumors of a possible split for A-list couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are making headlines again. And if the Hollywood power pair does part ways, the National Enquirer is reporting that Pitt doesn’t plan to go alone.
An inside source told N.E. that Pitt, “always wants to have the children in his life.” But in the case of at least one of the kids, he may not be looking for shared custody. “He's even told Angelina: ‘I’m taking Shiloh with me wherever I go.’ ”
What’s causing the alleged cracks in the Brangelina union? The magazine credits hectic schedules and disagreements on how to raise the children, as well as the stress from having an instant family.
Don’t blame Britney this time
Despite a recent Page Six report that Britney Spears bailed on a scheduled duet with Justin Timberlake, a source from Camp Brit told Us Weekly there were never any plans for the former sweeties to record.
“There have been lots of discussions about who Britney is working with and Justin has not been one of them. Nothing with Justin was ever even discussed. Justin has had no time to do it between planning his HBO special, his own Video Music Award stuff and working with Madonna anyway.” The source revealed to Us.
Keira Knightley worries about kids and fame
In a recent interview with The Radio Times, “Pirates of the Caribbean” star Keira Knightley shared her concerns about the lust for riches and fame in today’s youth culture.
“It frightens me when kids go, ‘I want to be famous.’ ” She told the British publication. “Why? Because you can get into a restaurant? You know what? If you book (a table), you can get into a restaurant! ‘I want to be rich and famous.’ Go and work on the stock market.”
Of course working on the stock market won’t get them a cover story in The Radio Times, so maybe Knightley missed the point.
And before the younguns get any ideas about looking as good as Knightley does in her many magazine spreads, she gave TRT her take on that, as well.
“Somebody goes, ‘Gosh, you're pretty.’ Thanks. I've got good genes! OK, I'm on the cover of a magazine but somebody else does the hair, and the make-up, and airbrushes the f--- out of me — it's not me, it's something other people have created.”
Dish on the fly:
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel finally gave the paparazzi a little proof that they are indeed a couple. TMZ cameras caught the couple exiting Timberlake’s restaurant, South Hospitality, hand in hand. … Just how famous is actress Anne Hathaway? According to Page Six, she and her beau Raffaello Follieri queued outside Flavio Briatore's Billionaire club in Sardinia for 20 minutes “waiting for someone to finally recognize her and let them in.”
