Reps for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have yet to deny the split rumors that surfaced over the weekend, but according to Ian Halperin, author of the recent bestseller Brangelina: The Untold Story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, a split announcement is right around the corner.
Halperin, who has been following Brangelina's relationship for years, is convinced they're going to “follow the script of his buddy Guy Ritchie during his own impending divorce to Madonna when the couple repeatedly denied the story until they made the official announcement.”
He believes the couple “will appear in public, probably in the next week, sending the public the message that the rumors are false. The couple isn’t married so Angelina can’t get herself photographed in public without her ring as is customary in these Hollywood breakup scenarios.
He added, “But as I predicted in my book, you will soon start to see an escalation in stories, some even in the mainstream press, citing unnamed sources, that Brad’s drinking and pot-smoking has gotten out of control. Angelina is worried for the kids. Then, when the time is right, the story will be leaked to a credible outlet like the L.A. Times that Angelina has hired a divorce attorney. Within a week to ten days after that, the couple will issue a joint announcement that they have come to an amicable split. The only question is when this will happen. Nothing’s been decided yet on that score.”
